The future health status of everyone in this country is totally dependent upon what we do with our knowledge and skills. And that’s really the bottom line. It’s that we have answers. Those of us who understand nutrition have the answers. And if those answers were actually being implemented, it would have an effect on everybody. If there were enough of us applying these answers, it would have an effect on everybody. We’re the ones with the know-how, the products, the desire and the purpose to fulfill the legacy of Royal Lee. It’s quite a legacy.

What will it take to handle this situation? Again, let’s take a look at the big view because what I’m talking to you about is not about you. It’s not really about your practice. It’s not about how you’re doing professionally. That’s not really the subject here. The subject is: how is the country doing? How are we doing in relation to the country? How are we doing in relation to solving the real problems out there? Not just our personal finance problems. Not just our family schedule. Those are all important, but what I have found (and it’s become part of my successful operating basis) is to the degree that I put all my attention on ME, ME, ME, ME, I stop being effective out there. But to the degree that I actually confront the true problem, the real scope of the problem and decide that I’m going to do something about it, my personal problems all resolve. I think you can imagine that.

When you’re on the right track, doing the right thing, things kind of line up in your life. When you don’t have a wide enough viewpoint about what it is that you’re doing, you’re not operating on a high enough purpose, you’ll have trouble, you’ll be struggling on various things that are a problem.

And yet, they’re not a problem for me anymore because I’m no longer working on Freddie, Freddie, Freddie. It’s not my income that I’m concerned about. It’s not my health that I’m concerned about. I’ve already taken care of those things. What I am concerned about is the health of this country because I see a horrible situation developing that is accelerating at a rapid rate. And each of us is going to inherit, one way or another, the problems of this country.

You know, it’s an old Judea/Christian tradition that the family lives for the survival of the family. We try to do things to improve things for our children and their children—our grandchildren. We survive through our families, don’t we? What kind of health situation is going to be out there moving into in the next generation?…The generation after that?…The generation after that?

If you’re familiar with Dr. Pottinger’s work, and if you’re not you should get some of Dr. Pottinger’s books. Get the books on the Cat Studies, get the video on the Cat Studies and you’ll see what Dr. Pottinger predicted back in the ‘30s, what would happen to the human race within 3 to 4 generations. He proved conclusively with the cats he studied that if you fed these cats enough refined food, refined sugar and white flour, it would develop all the degenerative diseases that we see so common today and which are absorbing so much of our gross domestic product and all of our energy and a tremendous amount of our free spiritual creativity all wrapped up in people being chronically physically ill.

So, in the Judea/Christian tradition end of it, we certainly have a responsibility to our children, our grandchildren and their children to do something effective to change the health care situation in this country.

Sometimes I’m jokingly reminded, though, of the East Asians, especially those who are into Buddhism and Taoism who believed it was them that were coming back. I think that it’s not a bad idea to think of that fact as a possibility since those guys have believed that for about 10,000 years and the Judea/Christian tradition is only about 5,000 years old. The Christian part of it is only 2,000 years old. You know, maybe those guys have some truth and, if they do have some truth, we’re coming back to what?

So, even if you can’t think about your children, think about yourself. The bottom line is whatever viewpoint we think of it, the fact is we do have a future because we survive as spiritual beings either as ourselves or through our children. One way or the other, there’s somebody going to be here on this planet, reaping the rewards of what we do or fail to accomplish.

It’s a big job. We have a whole country to handle. Fortunately, for this planet, what happens in this country tends to be what happens in other parts of the world. So, the good news is we don’t have to worry about the entire planet right off hand. We really need to worry about what’s going on here, what’s going to handle it. I jokingly used to think about the fact that I had this big successful practice in Upstate New York and I was getting people in from all over the country so I’m doing my job. Well, you know, when the phone calls started coming in from far more people than I could possibly see and far more people than I could afford to even physically or financially get on the plane to travel across the country, I started getting the idea that maybe Freddie Ulan running a big practice isn’t enough.
