I have to confess that I didn't understand very much of this. I will have to try again later.
However, one thing jumps out at me. TC says we are choosing to focus on imperfection in our health care system because not everyone has access to it. They seem to say that we should focus on how much more advanced it is instead and feel grateful.
What difference does medical advancement make when so many people can't afford treatment? I don't think someone living in pain or dying early from lack of treatment needs to be lectured about being grateful for the existence of advanced health solutions that they have no access to!
And btw, this is personal to me. The loss of our business a couple of years ago, meant the loss of health insurance too. We used to pay the whole expensive cost ourselves. My hope is that neither of us gets really sick before the business deals we're pursuing reach fruition, which will allow us to have insurance again. Both of us have some untreated issues that I hope won't become more serious.
This is the first time TC has made me downright angry! What am I missing here?
TC has always said about the events that are coming, that the event isn't as important as is our reaction to it..they are always trying to give the positive side to us...That's what I get here....
I'm with you, Lorri. I had to read it three times before it sounded sensical, and even then, a lot of it didn't sound...practical. Nevertheless, the information is appreciated.
I.e. the stuff about avoiding attack. Try not to have anything that someone else might want, but if you must, then convince them that it's easy for them to get it a different way or that they actually don't want it at all? I hope I misunderstood that.
Healthcare free at the point of delivery is one of two things I'm thankful to the British government for. The other one is tuition free university education.
Lol perhaps that should be tuition fee free!
Free education or medical treatment do not exist. I have never heard of a school, college, university, hospital, clinic, doctor teacher, nurse or professor which or who pursues their purpose & vocation, for free.
Be thankful not to a government but to your fellow wom/an, who created the government as means & method to do certain things, such as make someone besides a recipeint pay, not voluntarily.
Free at the point of delivery means the cost is borne by general taxation rather the individual. This socialist approach removes the cash registers from our hospitals and colleges and recognizes that we all benefit from a well educated and healthy populus. No slight on my American friends here but I would not want to leave a US hospital or college with a frighteningly massive bill.
Alex, the conundrum of the U.S. health system is that as long as you have employer-provided insurance, the system is probably better than in the U.K. as far as state-of-the art technology and wait times. I live in the mountains, but an hour south of me is a stunningly beautiful hospital full of the most advanced technology. The insurance/job connection can keep some people in jobs they don't like if they are in a line of work where insurance isn't usually provided.
If you are self-employed, the cost is very high and the deductibles are now very high (the portion you must pay before insurance kicks in 100%). Prior to Obamacare, we paid for private insurance that was expensive, but had a low deductible. Thanks to Obamacare, the plan no longer exists.
A substantial number of bankruptcies in the U.S. are for people with astronomical hospital bills who HAD insurance. Yet Congress passed a bill co-written by credit card companies that makes bankruptcy more expensive than it used to be. Let all that sink in.
If you don't have employer-provided insurance and can't afford your own insurance, you just fall between the cracks. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) does subsidize people who can't afford the whole cost, but they still have to pay something.
People who can barely pay their bills just to survive and don't have any money left for insurance are out of luck. My state has a state-run health plan that is supposed to be given to citizens for free if they qualify. Good luck qualifying though.
There is also Medicaid for poorer people, which is run by the federal government. Again, you have to qualify and you can be rejected even if you have no income.
We do have hospitals that will operate on people who show up in crisis, like having a heart attack. But those are the people who fell through the cracks and weren't able to access the preventative care that would have prevented the heart attack in the first place. Once they are out of danger, they go right back to no health care and probably no medication unless their prescription is really cheap.
In summary, we can offer amazing medical care, but we fail at distribution . . . because not enough people care enough about it yet.
There is a scientific report available about the value associeatd to the national health care systems
In the 2017 release, for developed countries, my country occupies position 12 having a similar evaluation of Luxembourg and Japan (89 points), USA is in position 35 , having similar evaluation as Estonia and Montenegro (81 points).
I suppose that USA has still a lot of work to do in this field
Not what they "seem" to say (interpretation) but rather what they DID say: (note the question was not about medical treatment)
"In your nation, medical treatment availability is of higher understanding & technology and better application than it has ever been, yet complaints surrounding low or un-availability are common.
You choose, as a society, to focus almost entirely on imperfection, not the historical and especially recent improvement and great advancements. This choice creates the notion of scarcity."
The first sentence is true. The second is also.
@ alex campbell "Free at the point of delivery means the cost is borne by general taxation rather than the individual." I disagree. It's more like "general taxation *before* the individual." The individual will eventually be generally taxed themselves, thereby, forced to return the favor. "Free at the point of delivery" is just that - *at* the point of delivery. Beyond that point, one's bill comes due. As it must, because as Patrick pointed out, nothing is truly free. It's only a matter of a government believing they can allocate the individual's resources than the individual themselves.
And as far as everyone benefiting from a healthy and well-educated populous. This is true, but only in so far as one's "free" health and education is used to benefit the populous. It does no good to be taxed into helping someone who has no intentions/capabilities of doing their part. Through your taxes, you're paying for someone's education and healthcare, and someone is paying for yours. Without the middleman of government, you each could've used the same money to just pay your own school/medical expenses. That's all we do in America. I don't pay anybody else's school/medical bills, and nobody else pays mine. The outcome is essentially the same.
Your whole body is constituted of atoms whose composition is 3% matter(ego) and 97% energy (soul, consciousness, intelligence, etc).
The air, the trees, your dwelling, all are the same energy and matter (oneness).
You have health issues to either experience the state (soul plan) or your body/soul his telling you that matter and energy are off balance.
All true. However, should you experience the state indefinitely, fail to identify its cause, can't correct the balance in time or at all, then you may well die as a consequence. Perhaps you can see how this might be distressing to someone who would rather live than die.
Rene is right.
When I'm on my death bed, I will look back on the last two and a half years as some of the most difficult of my life. The events have been financial, multiple legal issues, and health concerns.
Can I see important lessons learned? Yes. Did I find out who had my back and who did not? Yep! Can I see the benefit of having my old life torn down? Absolutely. There were aspects of it that felt like a cage. Did I find moments, hours, days, and weeks of happiness in spite of constant uncertainty? Yes. Do I see a light at the end of the tunnel? Yes. I have an opportunity to become more financially secure, yet with more free time than ever. (I'm not there yet.)
However, I am not going to brush aside how traumatic it's been. I'm not going to brush off the PTSD that's lodged in my psyche now.
It's also more difficult to live in the space of "knowing" it will work out, than it is to have tangible resources to bolster one's confidence. When your ability to finance basic life becomes an exercise in learning not to panic, and when you are forced to take your health one day at a time, because looking a year or two into an unknown future is terrifying . . . you react negatively to anyone brushing off your reality.
All of this to say that it will prove to be worth it in the end, but let's not downplay the cost in the present. I FEEL and LIVE the gaps in our healthcare system. I can't just go and get things checked out. I have to hope any health issues can wait or prove to be not serious.
I thoroughly enjoyed this.
The conversation does seems to meander a bit (just like you could when cutting a lawn), but in the end it's still part of one lawn (or one field, scientifically & energeticaly speaking).
A common thread for me seems to be to consider viewing systems, concepts, things & equations from the other side of the veil (or equal sign, as it were).
Flip the Script of Einstein, and you "plot" a new course, or plot line in the story you are telling yourself and thus experiencing.
Is the glass half full or half empty? it's actually both, and the faucet is usually just over there, if you choose to get more.
It all depends on the point of view, you choose to align with.
Speaking of formulas in reverse, this post could also be summarized as ...
"Seeing is believing", can more accuratley be conveyed as an infinite loop. ... "Believing allows seeing, which reinforces believing. Rinse, repeat".
I'm working on it. I've got it down conceptually, intellectually. And continuing to try and work it in experientially. Posts like this, help in that way.
Disclaimer: i also have health insurance at the moment, which is adding to the hue of my Rose colored glasses.
I’ve been reading and parsing this post. I’m in awe of your service to others path Patrick.
I get that our Guardians and angels visible to us is based in science (yet to be understood)
I get that if we don’t maintain freedom of expression no peace will ever come. That acceptance of differing opinions is the way forward and that there should be acceptance a different opinion is offered.
But does this acceptance apply to things currently labeled illegal?
What do we do after acceptance? Live and let live? Maybe I don’t get it:)
Just reading through that and it struck me, do we need to be asking TC questions in a better way. For instance if you got an audience with POTUS and asked if he had seen UFO's he'd laugh and deny there existence. But if you asked POTUS if he had ever been briefed on the Extra Terrestrial Alien topic. He would be more inclined to answer that he has.
This post probably does need several read throughs!!! I think the Commitee need to DUMB it down ;-) ;-) but yeah I get it ;-)
Just a little request, sorry not related to above post, but I enjoyed reading it :-)
Yesterday I had this Swedish lady contact me out of the blue on Instagram and she wanted advice on how to get rid of a man in her Apartment whom she firmly believes is George Michael! (I very much doubt it is George)? Maybe GM directed this lady towards me? Anyway, she said this man has been on her couch all year and he is very depressed and his energy is dense. She said she had dreams of George Michael when he died etc. She also told me she has seen spirit around her all her life and never really told anyone about her gifts. Her parents are also dead and she sees them as well but wants them to move on. It's sounds like she mostly sees Earthbound spirits that haven't moved on. I'm really not sure about this man who is on her couch.
Can the Committee quickly say if this man who has been in her Attic apartment all year is posing to be George Michael or is this George or any quick advice for this lady. She won't go and seek another medium in her own country for advice. I have been telling her to try and get this man on her couch to open up and talk and she can talk with him.
