In her book
about Yoga, Shakta Kaur Khalsa sites a study done at the American Public
Health Institute in which they found that “middle-aged people who give
up hope are at a greater risk of dying of heart disease.”
So, maintaining hope is an essential quality of health and survival, and yet there are so many of us without it. Hope is a funny thing. It is like faith in that it requires absolute belief in something that you cannot see or prove.
