Zero to Ten Toes
By Atom Bergstrom
I was doing a reflex treatment on Jane (not her real name).
We were on her living room carpet. I’ve always preferred the stability of a floor to the instability of a massage table.
I was aligning her toes, but none were popping (the movement of gas bubbles in the synovial fluid surrounding joints).
Her boyfriend came home, and she craned her head around to see him.
Suddenly, I was able to pop all ten toes!
All disease is DEPRESSION.
Depression is the doorway to death and extinction.
ANGER is the way to life and continuance.
It’s the rage to live.
Courage is controlled rage (cou-rage).
Anger and aggression are related, but not synonymous.
An example of healthy anger is the play-fighting of children.
Anger leads to JOY, the kind that makes you “jump for joy.”
Without cellular buoyancy, there can be no joy.
Joy is anti-gravity, leading away from the grave.
It’s levity versus gravity. Which one will win? It’s up to you.
The next step up Life’s Ladder is LOVE.
You’re at Life’s Pinnacle when you reach REVERENCE.
According to Albert Schweitzer (1969) …
“Only by means of reverence for life can we establish a spiritual and humane relationship with both people and all living creatures within our reach. Only in this fashion can we avoid harming others, and, within the limits of our capacity, go to their aid whenever they need us.”
