Ten percent dead means that you are ninety percent alive. Ninety percent alive doesn’t sound too bad, does it? If you were 90% alive or even 80% alive, I would be willing to bet, actually, I would be fairly certain that most of the time you would feel pretty darn good. Unfortunately, feeling pretty darn good most of the time does not in any way indicate that you are truly healthy.
One hundred percent alive. That sounds even better. 100%, that’s everything. That is a whole lot better than eighty percent or even ninety percent. The difference is only ten percent. That difference could ultimately mean the world to you. Imagine this: You live in a place where, because you live at 90%, whenever you shop at any store, the cashier will only give you back ninety percent of your change. That means that when you go to a store, if you buy an item for four dollars and you only have a five dollar bill, the cashier will only give you back ninety cents instead of one dollar. 90%, now that doesn’t sound like much, does it, it’s only a dime. But what if you are buying the Sunday paper for a dollar and you only have a twenty dollar bill. That means that you would only get back 90% of the $19.00 change you are owed. Now you are giving up 10% of nineteen dollars, which equals $1.90. You just spent $2.90 for the paper which usually only costs one dollar. See where this is going. You had better start carrying a lot of small bills!
This is exactly what many folks are doing with their health. They are only 90% alive. Okay, most days they feel pretty good; but every day they are giving away 10% of their health and future.
Ninety percent alive is also 10% dead. Ten percent of your body is not functioning. That is not health. You may feel good, but inside of you, there is malfunction. Think about those times when you do not feel perfect: perhaps it’s that indigestion you get after meals, or maybe it’s those annoying headaches. Or maybe it’s those monthly menstrual cramps or those seasonal allergies. What about those days when you feel like your head is in a fog and you just can’t think straight? Ten percent of you is not receiving nerve messages. Ten percent of your body is not fully alive. You are giving away 10% of your health, just like your money in the example above. That is the road to disease. When even just ten percent of the nerve messages from your brain to your body are cut off, malfunction, sickness, and disease will naturally follow. When your nerve system is working at 100%, all nerve messages from your brain to your body will flow through freely. Health is the natural result.
