Enjoy the Moment!

Have you noticed that when you compare the major health diets, whether Mediterranean or a juicing fast, that they all relate to using fresh healthy food. But besides that there is a look at how life is as a whole. The individual is not sorted into parts. How you look at life is such an important part of how your body functions. So the next time you go to take a bite of that big juicy nectarine remember to stop, smile, and truly enjoy the moment!

I May Have Even Changed the World

When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of
changing the world. As I grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not
change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my
country. But it, too, seemed immovable.
As I grew into my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt, I settled for
changing my family, those closest to me, but alas, they would have none of it.
And, now, as I lie on my deathbed, I suddenly realize: If I had only changed
myself first, then by example I would have changed my family.
From their inspiration and encouragement, I would then have been able to better
my country and, who knows, I may have even changed the world.
(Written on the tomb of an Anglican Bishop, 1100 A.D., in the crypts of Westminster

Compassion Is Not Religious Business

Compassion is not religious business,
it is human business,
it is not luxury,
it is essential for our own peace and mental stability,
it is essential for human survival.
Dalai Lama
