The 'Whole' Career Model? II

Today I returned to David Bohm's Wholeness and the Implicate Order chapter 1 Fragmentation and Wholeness:

Thus, the Latin 'mederi' meaning 'to cure' (the root of the modern 'medicine') is based on a root meaning 'to measure'. This reflects the view that physical health is to be regarded as the outcome of a state of right inward measure in all parts and processes of the body. Similarly, the word 'moderation' , which describes one of the prime ancient notions of virtue is based on the same root, and this shows that such virtue was regarded as the outcome of a right inner measure underlying man's social actions and behaviour. Again, the word 'meditation', which is based on the same root, implies a kind of weighing, pondering, or measuring of the whole process of thought, which could bring the inner activities of the mind to a state of harmonious measure. So, physically, socially and mentally, awareness of the inner measure of things was seen as the essential key to a healthy, happy, harmonious life. p.26.
