    Financially, wealth means having a lot of money.  Other than financially, wealth means 'having' or being in love, peace, and good health.  Dignity is a sense of self worth, recognizing and honoring that one is an expression of the Divine.  Elegance is to live true to my truth and to behave and carry myself as such.  Beautiful surroundings means a healthy natural world, which we take care of because it is us, it is beautiful, and it too is sacred.  I've come to realize that the real profit or wealth in life is living with that kind of dignity and elegance in an environmentally healthy world.  What I want out of my life is to abide in dignity and elegance in the beautiful surroundings of a healthy world, and for my children and all others to do the same.  I and we have a long way to go.
