A Sunday Chat with Myself — 14 January, 2018

Health is not valued until sickness comes. 

For a good many years of my life I’ve had an interest in sound–body healing sound, that is. I believe that sound is what created our universe; sound is energy, and energy is sound. Our earth has a vibrational frequency–7.82 herz, our bodies each have their own unique vibration, and to complicate things even more, all our organs within our body each vibrate at their own frequency!

” You can look at disease as a form of disharmony. And there’s no organ system in the body that’s not affected by sound and music and vibration.” — Mitchell Gaynor, M.D., Sounds of Healing 

I have absolutely no issue with doctors, or visiting a doctor’s office when necessary, but I also believe that God gave me a body and part of my responsibility during my stay here on earth is to care and look after it. In other words, if I get sick, my first thought is to see if I can find a cure for what ails me. If the sickness, or injury, is beyond my capability, then will I seek professional medical help.

During my many years of searching for self-cures, I found that, by using proper frequencies of sound, coupled with a healthy diet, I’ve confirmed that I can do a pretty good job of healing most of my minor ailments.

“It is more Important to be of pure intention than of perfect action.”  ― Ilyas Kassam 

The problem with many MP3 soundtracks that I open, or download to use in my meditation and healing ceremonies is that, although they may be perfectly presented, they lack one major ingredient: Intent! Plainly stated, did the artist of that music intend to create a perfect piece of music, or was his intent to touch my soul with his musical creation? It may come as a surprise to many, but with music, as with any great work of art, you leave your signature–your soul–your meaning–your intent in your finished piece. You may have noticed this yourself when listening to music. The same song, played by two different artists: one falls flat, the other, you purchase the record. It is no different in the art world. Same scene, two different artists. One artist can’t give his work away, the other artist becomes famous for his work.

Intent plays an important role in how we present ourselves to the world.

I wonder. What was God’s intention when He created the world through sound?

Treat Your Profession as an Art

A while back we had new linoleum laid in our kitchen and in my office area. It was a pleasure to watch this tradesman at work. Like every other home that I know of, our house is no exception: it’s just a fraction off square. Did it bother this craftsman? Not at all! One end of our kitchen was about  1/2 inch longer the other end. I forget the exact measurements, but when this fellow made his final cut and laid the linoleum, the piece fit exactly without any need to ‘fudge’ by adding a corner round or other means of covering up a mistake such as improper measurement or poor cut.

That’s professionalism! This floor specialist had a passion for doing a job  right and it showed in the way that he enjoyed his trade. This might also have been the reason why we had to book about three weeks ahead to have him come to lay our flooring: he was in demand. If given a choice, people will always hire someone that they can count on doing a perfect job every time over someone who is less dedicated to his profession.

I had a chance to talk to him for a few minutes after the job was done. I commented that it already was after eight in the evening. Did he always work this late? Well, not always, he assured me, but he loved his work and when an urgent job required a bit of overtime, he preferred work to just sitting around home, possibly watching some old television show–not that he and his wife didn’t have their nights out, he quickly added. They both enjoyed a social life, but he equally enjoyed his chosen profession. Was he planning to retire soon–say, at age 65? Well, not unless ill health forced him into retirement. Otherwise, he was prepared to work until … well, until he became too old and feeble to kneel on a hard floor, laying tile or carpet.

What an enviable lifestyle that man had created for himself! In my books, he’s an accomplished businessman and a family man. Or, as some might say, a successful businessman!
