“What thing about humanity surprises you the most?”
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.”

A successful businessman was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business.
Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He gathered the young executives in his company. He said, “It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you. ”
The executives were shocked. The boss continued “I am going to give each one of you a SEED today – one special SEED. I want you to plant it, water it, and come back one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO.”
One man, Jim, went home and excitedly told his wife the story. She got a pot, soil and helped plant the seed. Every day, he’d water it and watch to see if it had grown.
After a few weeks, the executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.
Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew. Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing. By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn’t have a plant and he felt like a failure.
Six months went by – nothing. Jim knew he killed his seed. Everyone had plants and trees…he had nothing. Jim didn’t say anything to his colleagues, however. He just kept watering and fertilizing the soil – He so wanted the seed to grow.
A year went by and all the executives brought their plants to the CEO for inspection. Jim told his wife that he wasn’t going to take an empty pot. But she asked him to be honest about what happened. Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was right.
He took his empty pot to the board room. When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives. They were beautiful — in all shapes and sizes. Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!
When the CEO arrived, he greeted his executives.
Jim tried to hide in the back. “My, what great plants, trees, and flowers you have grown,” said the CEO. “Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!”
All of a sudden, the CEO saw Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot and ordered Jim to come forward. Jim was terrified. He thought, “The CEO knows I’m a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!”
When Jim got to the front, the CEO announced, “Behold your next Chief Executive Officer! His name is Jim!”
Jim couldn’t believe it. Jim couldn’t even grow his seed.
“How could he be the new CEO?” the others said.
Then the CEO said, “One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead – it was not possible for them to grow.
All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. When you realized that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the new CEO!”

“God, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not seek so much to be consoled, as to console;
To be understood as to understand; to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying (to our small sense of self-identity) that we are born to eternal life.
Attributed to Saint Francis of Assisi
