The Truth

A poem attributed to BJ called The Truth was not written by BJ, it was named The Truth by BJ. The poem was called The Chiropractors Creed in a book called Chiropractic Thots by then Texas Chiropractic College's president Dr. James Drain. Dr. Drain said the original author was Dr. J G Gregorson and BJ borrowed it and named it.

We chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the
soul. We release the prisoned impulses, a tiny rivulet of
force, that emanates from the mind and flows over the
nerves to the cells and stirs them to 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 power that animates the living
