Alone with the Teachable Spirit

How can you be happy alone? What does the teachable spirit need to do to create happiness when you are alone? These are very difficult questions to answer, especially if we are busy people that have families and care for children. My life is serene now compared to what it was in the days when family was the focus; however, the work I was doing in my family’s life at that time would have benefited from answering these two questions. The scripture says, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Do you see that loving yourself is the foundation for loving your neighbor? The care that you take in meeting your own needs will be the same care you take in meeting those closest to you. Yeshua (Jesus) told a story in reference to this concept: And behold, a lawyer stood up...

The Teachable Spirit of Marco

Who is Marco? What was he doing in Kimana, Kenya? How did his teachable spirit help the Maasai? Marco, the Maasai interpreter from Tanzania, wound his way into our hearts through his passion for sharing the understanding of chiropractic care with his fellow Maasai. Leaving his boma in Tanzania to become a tour guide, Marco traveled to Arusha to learn the necessary skills for that vocation: how to drive a vehicle mechanics first aid the animals of the region During a lull in his work in January, Dreamweaver International came to Kimana with a medical team from Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine accompanied by three chiropractors, Dr. Warren Bruhl, Dr. Jeff Kahrs, and Dr. Dave Neubauer, and other medical personnel. Dr. Scott Smith invited Marco...

Chiropractic Care and the Teachable Spirit

Why is chiropractic care so vital to our well being? What makes chiropractic care so valuable to our lives? How does chiropractic care bridge the gap for those with little resources? Returning to Kenya in January 2015 brought me face to face with my own values. Growing up with mixed feelings from my family regarding chiropractic care, I regarded it with some ambivalence. Having a friend as a chiropractor for 30 years, Dr. Dean Simmons with Simmons Chiropractic Clinic, gave me some appreciation for the practice; however, it came with the respect for the person, and not necessarily his vocation. Remaining open to learning why God wanted me to participate in the Dreamweaver International mission to the Maasai in Amboseli National Park, the teachable spirit was...

Money Myths with the Teachable Spirit

Money Myths with the Teachable Spirit

We make the mistake of putting money in the center because we live in a culture that values money highly. We need to defang our view of money because we have hurts and wounds around money, and suffering around insufficiency. It is not so much a function of less or more; the wealthiest people have the most upset. They cannot sleep because there are so many things that could go up or down. Individuals born into families of wealth feel uncomfortable with it. The vicious cycle of wealth creates just as much suffering as the vicious cycle of poverty. —Lynne Twist, Fundraising from the Heart workshop, Santa Fe, New Mexico, September 2014 How did the myths surrounding money get created? What are the three pervasive myths regarding money? How do these lies have a...
