The Dalai Lama’s answer was as follows:
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health. Then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present, and as a result he does not live in the present or the future.
He lives as if he’s never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.
The most valuable gift that God gives us along with his unconditional love is our health. Our health, well being and vitality empowers us to fully live and actualize our divine potential.
Being healthy in all aspects of life, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and financially allows us to function at our highest and most creative levels and make our greatest contributions.
May you be blessed with a renewed spirit, purpose, attitude and health.
And may you manifest your highest creative potential…..
‘He who has health has hope and he who has hope has everything.’

Studies from The National Institutes of Health, University of Massachusetts and Mind/Body Medical Institute at Harvard University show that meditation enhances the qualities companies need most from their knowledge workers: increased brain-wave activity, enhanced intuition, better concentration, and the alleviation of the kinds of aches and pains that plague employees most.
Business Week Magazine
“… a growing number of corporations, including Deutsche Bank, Google and Hughes Aircraft offer meditation classes to their workers. Making employees sharper is only one benefit; studies say meditation also improves productivity, in large part by preventing stress-related illness and reducing absenteeism”
Meditation has some high-profile corporate disciples, including bond-fund king William H. Gross, of Pacific Investment Management Co., who often meditates before a day of trading at his $349 billion money-management firm. Tech outfits like Apple Computer, Yahoo and Google are also signing up and so are old economy businesses like consulting firm McKinsey, Deutsche Bank, and Hughes Aircraft.
Business Week magazine
A 2005 study by Harvard instructor Dr. Sara W. Lazar, showed that meditation can help to increase brain function, reduce the effects of aging on the brain, and improve concentration and memory.
The positive effects of meditation — increased calm, ease, center, poise, and balance — are now bolstered by over 4 decades of scientific research and more than 700 scientific tests conducted at universities such as Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Stanford as well as on going studies at MIT, University of Massachusetts and Harvard Medical School.
Intuitively, most leaders sense that more stress is not the way to build performance.
Important Information from Roy Eugene Davis and The Center for Spiritual Awareness:
Meditation Aligns the Body, Mind & Spirit.
1) Reduced stress
2) Strengthening of the body’s immune system
3) Slowing of biological aging processes
4) More orderly thinking
5) Improved intellectual abilities
6) Enhanced appreciation for enjoying life
7) Greater ease in overcoming or renouncing addictive behaviors
8) Spontaneous psychological transformation
9) More obvious awakened spiritual consciousness
Any one or all of these benefits are of value and the possibility of actualizing them should inspire us to meditate on a regular schedule. All is within you. Meditation allows you to naturally unfold to higher consciousness.
Accept the ideal of harmonious and supportive relationships as natural. You are part of the universe, therefore now the universe supports you fully. All of your needs are met easily; all of your legitimate desires are fulfilled without effort.
Feel yourself to be on your right course in life. Even if your way is not clear before you, feel confident that you are in your right place, in harmony with the rhythms and flows of nature and doors will open, events will unfold, circumstances will be presented to confirm your conviction, your realization.
Acknowledge all people with love and goodwill… bless them and wish them well. Be happy, be thankful. Om Peace, Amen.”
Meditation is powerful and healing. Visit Roy at his website or meditation retreats in beautiful Lakemont, GA. His meditation CD is wonderful and can be ordered from his website or CSA.
Meditation practiced properly can transform every aspect of your life and bring out your innate qualities. Allow yourself to connect with your spiritual source.

Life is a journey to bring out your natural beauty and greatness. It is already inside of you waiting to unfold like the pattern of the oak tree already inside the acorn. Once the acorn seed is planted in good soil, with sunshine and water, a beautiful tree grows.
So it is in life, the journey is to develop yourself, your personal character and values, your belief systems to align with excellence in all areas of life. Along with kindness and compassion is the important quality of forgiveness, for yourself and others. The power of forgiveness brings freedom to you and others. It is the way to healing and peace.
Deepak Chopra, “The Deeper Wound”:
“Forgiveness belongs to the heart. You can understand its value, you can believe that it is moral, good, upright and righteous to forgive – but if you don’t feel it, forgiveness is forced. Countless times you have needed forgiveness and countless times you have offered it to someone else. The mantle of who is right and who is wronged gets passed around in a circle. When you cannot find in yourself the purity of forgiveness, ask to feel more than you feel. Spirit will give you new and better reasons to forgive someone. It will show you another way.”
Is there anything you need to forgive in yourself or in others?
Do it now, let go and be free.
Make your life a masterpiece and actualize your divine potential.
