Rules to live by as an Acupuncturist in the world:
Being in the present moment, being kind, being considerate getting through each day that is what counts. Having technology, i phones, computers that is not really important. Knowledge is important and it is nice to have all the latest gizmos but just don’t over rely on any of that to much. See them tools that are important that are part of our, treat them as a symbol or a one to one relationship. Doing something useful with your life counts more. And treating people and getting people out of pain. Going shopping because your bored, eating cookies because your bored or drinking beer because your bored, that also doesn’t mean that you have to back pack around Africa treating people in Malaria laiden, areas while that sounds an amazing adventure doesn’t necessarily always count to what is going to make you the best that you can be. You have to make some positive changes in your life. Dedicate your life to for what matters for you and not just your Acupuncture training but other areas because it means,
1: know where you are going,
2: what is it that you are doing and most importantly
3: be awake rather than asleep!
There is a lot of trivia in our lives and that is fine but just don’t mistake trivia for what is important. For me personally I have stopped watching television, I hardly ever watch the news. I don’t waste my time with trivia, media. I spend my time learning and treating. Having time for my loved ones and my friends that is more important watching the latest soap isn’t. Paying any debts that I owe are more important to me but I don’t care what brand of washing powder we use. Nurturing and teaching my children is more important to me but dressing them in designer clothes is not that important. So I think you get the idea. There are somethings in this life that are ore important and there is a lot of things for us as Acupuncturists that we just need to dismiss.
