Chiropractic’s Destiny — or is it?
An idea whose time has come. A concept that is spreading throughout the entire population of a country or even the whole planet. The “Hundred Monkeys” concept (when more than a certain percentage of a population accepts and adopts an idea, it will inevitably spread throughout the whole population). It is absolutely impossible to stop an idea whose time has come… truth can only be suppressed for a comparatively short period of time before it forges to the forefront of life. This has been demonstrated again and again over the many thousands of years of human history. And now the concept of wholistic, natural, self-healing has come forth to benefit all of humanity.
The concept of “God within”, an Innate Intelligence within us all that is capable of healing any and all diseases and dis-eases known to mankind, given no interference, is here now. The “Above Down Inside Out” concept is a major part of it, that healing comes from within us and not from outside of us through drugs or surgery. “The power that made the body can heal the body” concept is also prominent within this idea. Drugs and surgery are slowly being relegated to their rightful place in our lives, as an effective means of First-Aid, but not to be used for Healing. It’s coming and no one can stop it, the only question that remains is what group (profession) will lead its surge into the new millennium.
We in Chiropractic like to think that we’re the “anointed ones” chosen to bring this concept to the world, and I would totally agree that we are first in line to be the torchbearers of wholistic healing for the new millennium. But, our destiny? Hmm… although we can make it our destiny if we choose to do it. Destiny lies not with any one group of Healers but with the concept itself. The concept of natural healing is destined to be brought into the world at this time, who brings it to the world is really immaterial to the Universe.
We in Chiropractic have been given the “golden opportunity” of the new millennium to receive or to throw away with our bickering among ourselves, our divisions of thinking, our ego-driven internal feuds, and/or our tendency to circle the wagons and shoot inward when challenges come from outside of our profession. Add to this the fact that 2/3 of us are not even members of a national Chiropractic organization and we can clearly see the challenges we in this profession face before we can carry the TORCH into the new millennium. This could be a Wake-Up call from the universe telling us to “get our act together or get out of the way and let another profession carry the banner of natural healing”…while this profession takes a place as a small footnote in the history of healing instead of as the leader of a world-wide revolution in the healing arts.
What are we going to do about it? The opportunity is here; the choice is ours; natural healing is coming to mankind. Are we going to sit back and let it pass us by and leave us lamenting over our lost opportunity, or do we get ourselves together and lead the way?
Each of us has to decide this, and NOW.
