A Slip on the sidewalk is a small thing

But restoration is the biggest idea of them all

Some years winter just isn’t ready to give up without a fight; this seems to be one of those years! I’ve fallen prey to the slippery sidewalk (driveway, in my case) and countless others will suffer the same fate. I want to be clear here: this isn’t about the fall, this is about the getting back up. The developer of modern chiropractic, BJ Palmer, said it best in his ‘Afterthot’ below. The way our daily struggles (not just a tumble thanks to late February ice)  impact not only our lives but the lives of those around us, and the way we can improve and enhance our situation in spite of them, is the biggest idea I know.

A slip on the snowy sidewalk, in winter, is a small thing. It happens to millions.
A fall from a ladder, in the summer, is a small thing. That also happens to millions.
The slip or fall produces a subluxation. The subluxation is a small thing.
The subluxation produces pressure on a nerve. That pressure is a small thing.
The pressure cuts off the flow of mental impulses. That decreased flowing is a small thing.
That decreased flowing produces a dis-eased body and brain.That is a big thing to that man.
Multiply that sick man by a thousand, and you control the physical and mental welfare of a city.
Multiply that man by a million, and you shape the physical and mental destiny of a State.
Multiply that man by one hundred thirty million, and you forecast and can prophesy the physical and mental status of a nation.
So the slip or the fall, the subluxation, pressure, flow of mental impulses, and dis-ease are big enough to control the thoughts and actions of a nation.

Now comes a man. Any one man is a small thing.
This man gives an adjustment. The adjustment is a small thing.
The adjustment replaces the subluxation. That is a small thing.
The adjusted subluxation releases pressure upon nerves. That is a small thing.
The released pressure restores health to a man. That is a big thing to that man.
Multiplythatwell man by a thousand, and you step up the physical and mental welfare of a city.
Multiplythatwell man by a million, and you increase the efficiency of a State.
Multiplythatwell man by one hundred thirty million, and you have produced a healthy, wealthy, and better race for posterity.
So the adjustment of the subluxation, to release pressure upon nerves, to restore mental impulse flow, to restore health, is big enough to rebuild the thoughts and actions of the world.

The idea that knows the cause, that can correct the cause of dis-ease, is one of the biggest ideas known.
Without it, nations fall; with it, nations rise.
The idea is the biggest I know of.
