7. The Call And The Challenge
This then is both the call and the challenge of a transition into better living. Someone once said, "We do not 'ooze' into health, we choose it!" Each client must love him or herself so much that s/he chooses to follow the Six P's to Perfection. S/he must come, by whatever means, to realize the authority of organic law and, being desirous of the whole of life, then choose to give far more than lip service to this authority and, instead, choose to live in accordance with it, and, even more important, to persevere no matter how long it may take to reach his/her own ultimate goal.
In other words, the client who will be successful makes the grand decision to desert the sickened herd and chooses, instead, the good rich life, the better life, of perfect health. Once this has been done, all that remains is for the client to focus seriously and deeply on this goal, always motivated by the good results that follow in the wake of intelligent performance.
Harry is a case in point. He had watched himself become a 50-year-old "baby," completely dependent upon others, a burden to his family and to himself. At our first meeting, his eyes were filled with terror.
Harry has been a Hygienist now for the better part of a year and has reached that point where he is fully confident that one day he will no longer be dependent on others for his total care.
Harry has yet to fast a whole day but, undaunted, he says, "Don't worry, I'll make it. I'll do it!" And we are sure he will. This is the confidence required to reap the rewards of a successful transition. Harry is already looking forward to the day when he can, in person, attend one of our potlucks or other meetings and there tell his own wonderful story so that others may develop his deep sense of the rightness of the Hygienic way. Harry usually replies, "Do you think I can do that?" Our reply comes, "Why, Harry, of course you can do it!" And then a smiling Harry usually replies, "You know, I believe I really can!" The challenge has been accepted.
Someone once said, "Minds grow by reaching, not by resting." Our clients will surely make a successful transition when we help their minds to reach into the wonder that is life's scientific truth; when we impart to them the knowledge that life is never static, but rather always a dynamic play of forces; and that, by adhering to nature's gentle ways, they can participate in a positive dynamism that will, with certainty, fulfill all their dreams. Client and practitioner alike must honor the call and accept life's wondrous challenge. After all, we are all in the process of BECOMING, and what we will to become, that we will BECOME!
