Sunday, I finished up a job I started a few weeks ago, pulling the weeds from my front lawn. My lawn is filled with Bindweed, which you probably have seen on your lawn or other lawns. It is a viny weed with small white Morning Glory flowers, and it spreads everywhere.
As I continued to pull the Bindweed up, I was amazed at how much of my lawn was covered in it. After an hour or so of pulling it out, I noticed a few differences:
- There was no more Bindweed in my front yard.
- My grass, which was green to the eye before, was now browning.
Why was that?
Probably because the weeds were killing the life from my grass, and also because the seemingly green color of my lawn was actually WEEDS!
Fortunately, after a nice watering, the green color came back to my grass, but this exercise got me thinking.
The Bindweed was choking off the life to my grass. As a result, my grass was losing its color and turning brown.
However, I was not able to perceive the deterioration of the HEALTH of my grass until I REMOVED the force that was choking off the life, the Bindweed.
Once I removed the interference, and added some water, the LIFE and HEALTH of my lawn began to return.
Does this sound familiar?
How about, the continued physical, emotional, and chemical stress that you experience over the course of your life (Bindweed), begins to choke off the life within you (Brown Grass).
When the interference or subluxation is removed (Bindweed), you begin to heal better and function better physically, emotionally, and psychologically (Green Grass)
Said a different way, have you ever taken notice that something does not seem right with your health or your life, and then you notice it more and more, and wonder, “When did this start? I don’t remember when it started but now it’s happening all the time and I am concerned about it. Same with my grass. I did not notice the Bindweed until it became more prevalent in my lawn and I saw all the white flowers, and then when I removed it all I saw how it had affected the health of my lawn.
Moral of the story:
Don’t wait until the Bindweed takes over the health of your lawn.
Don’t wait until symptoms, illness, and disease take over YOUR health and life.
Your health is your MOST important asset. Remove the interference to health, and let your body function and heal itself better than it could before.
Please feel free to share with those you know whose life has become filled with Bindweed.
