Planet Earth in this 3rd millennium needs global biologists and bio-planeticians who will be concerned with all existing life forms on the planet and their future. For example, the vanishing of a species every five hours (84,000 in the next 50 years) should be one of their main concerns.

|Dearest Barbara and Robert: |
As you requested, let's help make October the happiest month of the year for everyone. Let's think about ways to live the presence of happiness during October and perhaps, extend this fun way of living and healthier frame of mind for 365 more days.
As you know the brain must be stimulated and active, as well as the spirit, the heart, the six senses and all other parts of our being, to keep it healthy, vibrant and alive. Nurturing our social networks with sense of humor, creativity, cultivating a state of appreciation for the precious small things that are always there to embellish our lives. As we procure opportunities to give and receive love, these are a few good ways and reasons to inspire us this October, the happiness month to practice LOVE, HAPPINESS AND KINDNESS...
How love and happiness nurtures our health?
The practice of love and kindness contributes to our sense of well-being, increases our energy and great sense of calmness. When we tap into kindness, we draw upon our body's ability to relax and to let go. Kindness is stress-reducing behavior. Acts of kindness take our minds off our own problems. We are other-focused. When we do kind things for others, our body rewards us by releasing powerful chemicals (endorphins) which make us feel good. Some other documented health benefits of the practice of happiness and love are:
Perhaps, I love thinking about ways I can help brighten at least one person's day, everyday. Small but meaningful details help remind people that love exits and that they are too loved by others. We humans, animals and all living things were crafted by love, and one of the most beautiful essences of the human being is our capacity to love. By loving we help nurture and multiply good healing energy. Multiple seeds of unconditional happiness and joy that remind us of the "real force-the practice of love" that unite us and sustain us. Love is not only in our vision of God, but it is palpitating in each one of us. There is nothing like experiencing an act of kindness from a stranger. It is like being visited by a massager of love... "because I do matter" and because we have never been left alone and because love is everywhere.

- builds up a better immune system
Acts of kindness and love, these types of selfless caring, are what help us keep our faith in humanity and in a better world. Because when we believe in people, it makes them stronger. So, let's "be the change we want to see in the world", let's continue finding ways to help brighten the day of someone, every day.
Happiness is something we nurture within ourselves too. In a lengthy study, the National Institute on Aging found that feelings of health and wellness were closely tied to personality characteristics of individuals, which included a joyful approach to life. Those people who choose to find joy in life were not dragged down by what life had thrown them, rather they maintained their optimistic attitude throughout the 10-year study and were healthier than a group of subjects who took a more negative view of their world. One beautiful example is "Good Morning World", the inspiring, happy and nurturing ideas of Robert, Barbara, and many others that contribute with their heart's desires to nurture happiness and a better quality of life for everyone. Thank you for brighten my day every day. The language of love is within us way before we learn our mother tongue, so LOVE and HAPPINESS are simple and effective ways to communicate with everyone.
No act of kindness or love is ever wasted, so, here are some ideas for us to help brighten one person's day, everyday.
"Buying a stranger a meal, saving a tree, paying for a tank of gas for someone in need, smile or pay a sincere compliment, give your full attention and simply listen, bring flowers to a nursing home, treat someone to fresh fruit, transport someone who can not drive, give another driver your parking spot, act on thoughts of generosity that arise spontaneously in your heart, give a bag of healthy groceries to a homeless person, pray and act for peace, incorporate the words PEACE and HAPPINESS in all your conversations and correspondence, look up to the sun, sky and stars and acknowledge the presence of love in our lives, write or call a distant relative, decorate small pumpkins and take them to the children's hospital, treat yourself with eight hours of good rest, etc..."
