about six months after I began practicing meditation twice daily. Before I meditated regularly, I had less energy, less vitality, less desire to do anything. My ability to accomplish things has skyrocketed since making meditation a daily habit. In August 2010, when Dr. Terry Grossman told me that my test showed I have the Alzheimer?s APO-e4 gene, I was not really alarmed. By then I was half a dozen years into my self-developed program to grow younger and the symptoms had disappeared. I knew all about Dr. Bruce Lipton?s work with genes and how the expression of genes is determined by the signals genes get from their environment. I knew that even though I had the gene, as I had suspected, it didn?t have to express, and with my daily practices I was on the right track for keeping my Alzheimer?s gene in the ?off?position. So what does t his mean f or you? Well, if you don?t already have a meditation practice, I highly suggest you start one now. In addition to all the benefits science has identified through research, the eventual ? and sometimes immediate ? benefits of peace of mind and a heart overflowing with love are, in my opinion, the nectar of life and the essence of happiness.
