Notes from the Practice of Harold Goodman, D.O.

Life is fluid.  Saturday, June 05, 2010

Life is fluid.

We all know what a fluid is. Water, cerebrospinal fluid, lymph, blood, urine are all examples of fluid.

But what defines something that we call a fluid?

One of the things that define it is that it is always shifting, constantly finding a new relation to the whole. It is not static, never fixed.

So often when approaching patients a physician will see the patient as suffering from some disease which often has a name or diagnosis.

Such a label is fixed.

Whatever may happen with the patient, the label remains unchanged.

In so many ways, this is not helpful if the person wishes to heal.

Our reality is never fixed.

When we approach others and ourselves in this way, using a fixed, unwavering lens of perception, we do ourselves a tremendous disservice.

In fact, we live a lie.

We are not fixed, never static.

We are alive. We are the manifestation of the life force which is totipotent, all powerful, omnipresent, and omniscient.

We are life incarnate.

We are fluid in nature.

Life is fluid in nature.

This is how to approach a patient.

This is the osteopathic vision of the man who discovered the art and science of osteopathy, Andrew Taylor Still, MD.

Anyone who approaches themselves or another as static is a liar.

They may be a well-meaning liar and a really nice person ( most of them are) but they are living a lie.

Open to your reality, the truth of your fluid nature.

Fear, depression, anxiety will disappear for they cannot withstand the light of the Divine which is who and what you are.

When we deny this, we effectively deny ourselves and all that is good and holy in life.

Don't accept anything less.

Life is fluid.
