HUMAN WELL-BEING AND HUMILITY : I must express my thanks to A2Dave for giving me this opportunity to discuss the subject of humility in the context of promoting human health and well-being. It is my impression; Man is never Free and has no ability to rule or govern himself during any stage of his physical existence. Since man leads a conditioned existence, he always needs the Power/Force/Energy called Mercy/Grace/Compassion. To seek the uplifting Power of Mercy/Grace/Compassion, man is given the mental ability called 'DEVOTION'. The evidence for the operation of 'DEVOTION' is recognized as humility. In other words, humility is the key for Health and Wellness which comes into play by displaying the mental attitude called devotion.

Health and Wellness Fair: It is time to define these terms of our discussion. 1. What is health?, and 2. What is Wellness? How do they intend to assess the 'Health' of any given individual without defining the Whole Person? What are the components of Wellness? If there is pain, and sorrow in the world in which I exist, how could I enjoy the state or condition called "WELLNESS"???
