with the subtle substance of the soul.

We release the prisoned impulse,

the tiny rivulet of force

that emanates from the spirit

and flows over the nerves and the cells

and stirs them into life.

We deal with the magic power

that transforms common food into living, loving, thinking clay;

that robes the earth with beauty,

and hues and scents the flowers

with the glory of the air.

In the dim, dark, distant long ago,

when the sun first bowed to the morning star,

this power spoke and there was life;

it quickened the slime of the sea

and the dust of the earth

and drove the cell to union

with its fellows in countless living forms.

Through eons of time it finned the fish

and winged the bird

and fanged the beast.

Endlessly it worked,

evolving its forms

until it produced the crowning glory of them all.

With tireless energy

it blows the bubble of each individual life

and then silently, relentlessly dissolves the form,

and absorbs the spirit into itself again.

And yet you ask,

“Can Chiropractic cure appendicitis or the ‘flu’?”

Have you more faith in a knife or a spoonful of medicine

than in the Innate Power

that animates the internal living world?
