Be really Whole
And all things will come to you

 --Lao Tzu (Tao Te Ching 22)

Do not worry about your life, what you will eat;
nor about the body, what you will put on. . .    
Consider the ravens,
for they neither sow nor reap,
which have neither storehouse nor barn;
and God feeds them. 
Of how much more value are you than the birds? . . . . 
Consider the lilies, how they grow: 
they neither toil nor spin;
and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one of these.   
If then God so clothes the grass,
which today is in the field
and tomorrow is thrown into the oven,
how much more you, O you of little faith? 
And do not seek what you should eat
or what you should drink,
nor have an anxious mind.
For all these things the nations of the world seek after,
and your Father knows that you need these things.
But seek the Kingdom of God,
and all these things shall be added to you.
  --Jesus (Luke 12:22, 30-31)
"There is nothing more detrimental to health than worrying about health.  I'm not talking about thinking and caring about health, but worrying about health."

Few Care about Health

Of all the people I know of personally, less than a handful even care about their health.  I know a lot about how to be healthy and how to have a near perfect diet but really I don't care so much about health and diet anymore.  It is not really the important thing in this life and I think I have decided that I don't feel like trying to share this with anyone anymore.  If you ask me, I will tell you what I remember.  I am about to forget all that. I forgot about what it took to make money several years ago, it is not the important thing in life.  I will be forgetting a lot of useless things in the near future.  One other thing, I am going to forget how this world plays out it's story.  It is a terrible story, I am glad it is just a dream.  I am soon to check out of the story of this world.  I am a free man.  I just am.  Nothing more.  And when it is time for this to die, it and you will no longer exist.  However, the I (that is "You" included) never dies.
