A WILD GOOSE CHASE, or the CREATION OF A GOLDEN GOOSE?
My idea for the Wellness Emporium: to have a place for the many things needed for full wellness, for flourishing fully - a place for obvious things, like physical nourishment and exercise, and also a place for things like inner requirements, and even further, a place with attention to things required for good thinking.
And then I woke up, one morning with the question:
Is this a wild good chase? Shouldn't I, like most people, focus on one thing or another.
A quote from Buckminster Fuller comes to mind:
You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model
that makes the existing model obsolete.
I am proposing a new model. Not wellness segmented. But full spectrum wellness, which includes mental development, like thinking, valuing facts - and which even includes social involvement and attention to social things.
But is this a wild good chase, to create this - something that will just take energy, and bring back almost nothing?
The opposite could also be true - that this may be something that responds to a desire, perhaps unspoken, in many people.
In that case, instead of this being a wild goose chase, this could be the creation of a golden goose - of major benefit to people, and also to me!!
So this is my vision of the potential GOLDEN GOOSE:
The new model is of full-spectrum wellness. Full development, development in all areas of our lives, so we flourish fully,
is generally missing in our society.
Full-spectrum wellness, by the way, is both the individual goal, the full flourishing for all individuals, and the social goal, a society flourishing because the people within it are flourishing, including that they’re flourishing in their involvement with their society.
To reach this goal of full development, we need to recognize where we’re already strong, and where we’re weak, lacking.
We need to explore the areas where there’s a frequent lack of development.
And we need to repair the lacks.
In case your response is: but I'm fully developed! please read on.
Western society has taken many steps to recognizing what’s needed for full development - for instance, we need to exercise, we need to eat foods that nourish us, we need to deal with old trauma.
However, most Western societies have missed out on other aspects of what’s needed for flourishing - such as valuing facts, and such as valuing logical conclusions. The gaps here are astounding to anyone who begins to notice. People who may search out every bit of evidence on the qualities of different kinds of rice, often present as facts things that are unfounded beliefs - without showing the slightest awareness that they’re doing this. "All opinions are equal." “All religions are basically the same.” "It’s wrong to be judgmental.” Yet they would almost certainly not say, "All rice is equal." or "It’s wrong to be judgmental about rice."
And the question once more: is this a wild goose chase? Is this a path to nowhere, a road leading to nothing but roadblocks? Will anyone listen?
Or, rather, is it, again, a potential fantastic golden goose - something that will catch hold, something waiting to happen.

ISAGENIX TO THE RESCUE?
It's a bit less than 2 weeks that I started Isagenix. Have I noticed any changes?
I pulled my back out of whack 4 days ago. Within 2 days, it was almost recovered - about 2 days faster than usual.
Then I got over-confident, wasn't careful how I sat. In fact, I knew I was sitting in a way that was a bit risky. But my back felt so strong and sturdy. It was not a wise decision, as I knew the moment I moved. I was right back where I started.
The good thing: in one day, it was much better. Now it's 2 days, and it's ever so much better.
And yes, I'm being more careful this time!
