TAOIST PHILOSOPHY – are you bored or intrigued why I am writing about this?
Have you ever read something that just resonated with you so much that you had that aha moment? Well I have been reading the Taoist philosophy book that was recommended to me and it has really impacted me and my world.
It is crazy how an ancient philosophy can be so relevant to our lives today. It is also crazy how this ancient philosophy can be so relevant to someone’s metabolic physiology. But it does. I am going to bore you with a lesson from the book – not with the whole story but a summary of it.
It’s a story about a man who in summary no matter what he had he wanted to be bigger – better – more powerful -more respected. He wanted to be admired with all his heart because he thought that this would bring him happiness.
He manifested all that he wanted and worked for it and he got it. The more he got the more he wanted. He never reached the point where he was happy with what he had.
He then had a pivotal moment where when he was at his most powerful and prestigious point – where he could go no more, that a person like where he had started, made a massive impact on his world by one small and simple act.
It hit him that he had all he needed all along – he had the ability to make a difference before he started this journey. He just didn’t know it nor did he give himself credit for it.
** if you want me to post the story in full let me know in comments**
Why is this relevant and why am I writing about it?
Well, it is relevant in my world because I am a metabolic health and wellness coach amongst other things, and I see how our day to day lives impact our long-term goals. How we think, how we feel, how we see, how we interpret, our past our present – can all impact our decisions and our choices.
These choices and decisions can then impact our weight and our health in turn impacting our metabolic physiology. (Remember metabolism starts in the brain).. So yes, physiology does become relevant especially today in this crazy world. When we are struggling to breath –feeling overwhelmed with expectation at the same time feeling frustrated with ourselves for not ticking all the boxes.
This is a lesson and another important piece to the puzzle for some of us to achieve and sustain healthy sustainable – change.
