Happy New Year!
Medicine is changing at the speed of light. Politics, dogma, “trust the science” and big money are tearing each aspect of medical practice apart worldwide. It is time that we care for our patients and our beloved profession, using the highest ethics and LOVE for all people. We must take the lead.
Here is essential reading to start your new year off. I cannot recommend it more highly! The book is The Next Wave is Brave.
“My mentors and teachers failed to impart to me in medical school, the terms and conditions that prioritize courage [in the practice of medicine.]. Alas, in the medical profession, there are many heroes, but courage is optional.”
“I’m sad to say that [courage] is really, very rare.”
— Peter McCullough, MD in The Next Wave is Brave.
In love, I ask you to join me. Together, our courage can buoy our world!
Sure, you wonder sometimes…
If you are ready to move to the next ‘step’;
If you are able to deal with what’s happening;
Gather your courage
And know with your Divine help
Even if not ‘ready’,
You can do it!
How do you know that?
Because the other choice
Leaves you where you are now.
Grasping, worrying, wondering,
Not growing toward ‘more’.
You can do it.
