I hope you have enjoyed my use of the metaphor in composing the posts which are centered on creating a healthy heart, both physically and emotionally. The message is directed at those of you who seriously need to address your health at this point in time. The last post closed off on a somber note, making the point that physically inactive and largely overweight men and women are most at risk of contracting the debilitating diseases of the heart and diabetes, and placing themselves at risk of suffering from a stroke.
Where to begin is sometimes a common question for enthusiastic bloggers who want to get on with the business of writing up an inspirational or thought-provoking post that is going to capture the imagination or grab the full attention of their readers. I have been thinking along these lines. I was thinking about my previous post where I set out to gain your attention on the importance of looking after your heart on both the physiological and emotional level.
Would you believe that there are still people in this world of ours that doubt where the actual center of the universe is? There was a time in the past when people believed that the earth on which we all live is that center. It was based on religious beliefs which, in turn, also misunderstood the fundamental teachings of philosophers and prophets. Such misunderstandings and ignorance often caused wars to be fought and the loss of millions of lives. Now what does any of this have to do with healthy eating and living for heart, body and soul, some of you might be asking.
