Thoughts From My Couch
 
Caring for your heart
Caring for your heartThe two children are looking longingly at the display of cakes in the glass cabinet, their eyes glistening with desire and I can see their mouths watering at the colourful display. “No, absolutely not!” comes the stern and almost angry voice form the mother. The “but moooommm”, reply from the kids are swarmed by the mother’s words of “lactose intolerance” and “gluten free” and “allergies” and on and on it went.

The two children are looking longingly at the display of cakes in the glass cabinet, their eyes glistening with desire and I can see their mouths watering at the colourful display. “No, absolutely not!” comes the stern and almost angry voice form the mother. The “but moooommm”, reply from the kids are swarmed by the mother’s words of “lactose intolerance” and “gluten free” and “allergies” and on and on it went. My piece of carrot cake in front of me suddenly is looking different and I am having thoughts of what dangers are lurking deep inside the cake.

When I was a boy I remember the fashion words of the day like ‘arts and crafts’ and Egyptian cotton’ and ‘home baked’ and allergies was something which made you look like some terrible disease from the middle ages. It was a real full blown allergy. Bread was fluffy and white and we would spread it with butter and sugar for a snack. Our children’s parties were full of coloured cakes and red cool drinks and I slept with coke next to my bed every night. “Worse than witchcraft”, is the shocking response I get now telling this to my super healthy friends. In a way it was simple and trusting way of life.  Now I find myself reading labels over and over, and food shopping can sometimes now become a calculated and tiring experience. And there is never a shortage of new scientific proof and experts telling you on facebook and hundreds of websites about the newest and frightening dangers lurking in everyday food.

I suppose it is all in good faith but it does make me wonder about the almost faith like and harsh religiousness it is sometimes practised; as my NLP Trainer in Arizona would say: “It is all a matter of degree.”Perhaps the fear and panic accompanying all these research are more dangerous than the actual food itself.  So, yes of course we should be aware of new knowledge and be willing to adapt and change our behaviours and make wise decisions about what we eat but looking after your heart is sometimes more than just what you put inside your body.

At one stage of my life when I lived in a small town in an old sandstone house there was a wise old man working in the garden. He did not do much, but it was not really important. For me his wisdom and love coming from a sunburnt face and warm heart was worth more I have learned and experienced on all my courses combined. On a freezing winter’s morning he would stand outside warming his hands on a self-made fire and when I brought out coffee and we would spend a few minutes in silence appreciating the cold and the hot coffee. And despite the minus zero temperature it was his warm smile and his words which are still imprinted on my heart today:  “If the heart is really happy, nothing else really matters too much.”
