A Message From Our Editor, Issue #39 – A Sacred Trust
A Sacred Trust
This issue celebrates the 118th birthday of chiropractic, and covers some major issues that face the future of chiropractors and our role in the emerging paradigm shift we are all part of. Chiropractors are leaders and heroes…forging the way for a new worldview, and establishing it through our model of thinking, healing and shifting. We offer ourselves, our practice members, our community and, yes, our entire world the adjustment to connect us to our innate ability to heal and live more fully, and we offer humanity the materials to trust this innate potential for greater life expression in body, mind and soul.
As subscribers to Pathways, we are at the leading edge of this communication. As we receive Pathways and read the thought-provoking articles, a greater understanding expands, strengthening our ability to gather as tribes in our communities with sustainable, healing solutions.
As B.J. Palmer, the developer of chiropractic, frequently quoted, “It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.” With Pathways, we are lighting the candles of clarity, hope and inspiration.
As many chiropractors have commented, Pathways takes the Above-Down-Inside-Out philosophy and applies it to all aspects of family living. Very powerful, indeed. And for those of you who participate in ICPA’s public outreach mission with our Pathways Connect program, you see the direct results it has on helping humanity make this shift—and yes, becoming educated, informed, conscientious advocates of the chiropractic way of life.
In his last written words, Palmer instructed us to be conscious and responsive to the wisdom that flows from above-down-inside-out. He left us with this charge: “For you have in your possession a sacred trust. Guard it well.”
Let us celebrate chiropractic’s anniversary, and move forward with confidence of humanity embracing this emerging paradigm.
For the Raising of the Consciousness, Jeanne Ohm, D.C.
