From Ambition to Meaning

I just finished the most delightful book, "The Shift" by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. It is all about living a life moving away from ambition to one of meaning. There are no tips on eating a healthy diet and the word exercise is mentioned only once. As I read it I became aware that it is about healthy solutions.  He wrote about issues such as ego, material possessions, and being judgmental. ..."we don't define others by our judgments we are simply defining ourselves as people that need to judge". Living a life with less stress, fewer ego-centered moments, with more gratitude and humility is more joyful and that is healthy. There is so much written today about living a life with gratitude. It must be something worthwhile.
