Question:

What thing about humanity surprises you the most?

The Dalai Lama’s answer was as follows:
“Man.”

“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 you along with his unconditional love is your health.  Your health, well being and vitality empowers you to fully live and actualize your creative potential.  Being healthy in all aspects of life, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and financially allows you to function at your highest and most creative levels and make your 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.”

What the catipiller calls

a friend shared this story with me…

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.  One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.  His bed was next to the room’s only window.  The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end.  They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation.  Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.  The man in the other bed began to live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.  

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.  Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats.  Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.  

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.  One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by.  Although the other man couldn’t hear the band — he could see it.  In his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days and weeks passed.  One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.  She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.  As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window.  The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.  Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.

He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed.  It faced a blank wall.  The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.  The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.   She said, “Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.”  

Epilogue: There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.  Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.   If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have money can’t buy. 

The origin of this letter is unknown.  Just forward it to your friends to whom you wish good luck.
