Take It or Leave It!

A while back when my mother was feeling frustrated by the hospital system and how slow they were I said the health service is the way it is.  I said she had two choices: she can either take it (accept how things are) and be at peace with that model; or leave it (opt out of the medical model) and find another way.

I have experienced the medical model. In fact, I've even had three operations on the health system which I'm very grateful for. When I made the decision to opt out, I opened myself up to a whole new reality, which is foreign to a lot of people.

Here's one example of what I mean by "foreign."

While I was in the library, there was a man fitting an electronic presentation system.  Before the engineer left, he said to the library manager to be sure to give him a call if there were any problems. 

Perfection is foreign to the mass consciousnesses of humanity.  When you have something installed; you expect there are going to be problems or for the thing to break down.  Perfect technology that never breaks down or lasts forever will result in mass employment.  So they keep creating technology with either a very short life span or with problems built in to be solved.

Reminds me of a conversation I had the other day with a friend about charity organisations. He cited one charity that is always asking for money for clean water for Africans.  Why is it they never have a permanent solution? Again, if people had permanent access to clean water, the charity organisation would go out of business.  Charity workers need to survive too. That's why their adverts are filled with images of starving children.  Focus on problems and you end up creating more problems and more jobs.

As I see it, the system is the way it is because people's livelihood depend on it.  It's up to each individual to decide whether they can take it or leave it. 

I have found leaving a model of reality that majority of people believe in to be a very lonely path to walk, but  I've gone too far to turn back now.
