striking a balance

striking a balance

Looking for inspiration on what to write about, I found this written on a piece of paper while cleaning my room. I recall reading this in a daily broadsheet once and having been moved by the words, wrote it down and eventually forgotten, until now. Happy Holidays everyone!


“Respect and balance” was what Dr. Samuel Bernal said when he was asked to choose keywords to best describe his medical credo.

He continues by saying “one must respect the individuality of a person, and how every RNA, the edited version of genes of DNA, is expressed. Every gene expresses itself uniquely in every individual.”

“Balance – this isn’t just physical, it is all of mind and spirit, too. When working at one’s health, the personal state of mind and heart is an integral part of the totality of being.”
