Part 3: Health & Relationships

Lesson 8 Chapter 3

There is an intimate relationship between the heart, gratitude and health. People who are anger prone are nearly three times more likely to have a heart attack than are emotionally calmer persons.

Our gratitude, compassion, and love with which we approach life has a powerful impact upon our relationships with others and ourselves. Our relationships define us. They are our legacy. Relationships are intimately connected to our happiness.
