Dear Julia, This is your Lumaii book and it‘s all about YOU. It has been made with Meraki.

The concept is simple. Open this book every day on a random page. Every statement on every page is true. You will only find words and statements that are genuinely true. So keep this book near to you, keep it in sight and if you can, keep this little book, forever. Remember, open it on just one page every day. Julia .


Some people make your laugh a little louder, your smile a little brighter and your life a little better. (Yes, thats you Petra)

Patricia One trait of being as nice as you are Patricia, is practicing charitable actions. When you‘re helping someone, you‘re not only bettering their lives, you may also be improving your own: Studies show that when you volunteer or show compassion, you reap health benefits that may help you live longer by reducing stress, improving your mood, and even help you to be more succesful in whatever you choose. Keep up the great work, Alice.

Every atom in your body is billions of years old. Hydrogen, the most common element in the universe and a major feature of your body, was produced in the big bang 13.7bn years ago. Heavier atoms such as carbon and oxygen were forged in stars between 7bn and 12bn years ago, and blasted across space when the stars exploded. This means that the components of your body are truly ancient: You are stardust, Marilyn

Random fact: A laughter epidemic began on January 30, 1962, at a school for girls in Kashasha, Tanzania. The laughter started with three girls and spread throughout the school, affecting 95 of the 159 pupils, aged 12 to 18. The Symptoms lasted from a few hours to as long as 16 days in those affected. The teaching staff were not affected but reported that students were unable to concentrate on their lessons. The school was even forced to close down for a short period and the epidemic went on to spread to other schools in the area, also other villages, who were all affected to some degree for 6 to 18 months after it first started. In total 14 schools were shut down and over a 1000 people were affected from this laughing epidemic.

there is no doubt, Jennifer, you are absolutely astonishing

Consider this, Jennifer. Your inner speach can clock in at over 4,000 words per minute. This is 10 X faster than your verbal speech. Even faster is your sense of touch which takes about 0.2 seconds for your brain to recognize when something is touching your hand or foot. However your hearing is by far your fastest sense. You can recognize a sound in as little as 0.05 seconds and if thats not astounding enough, when you listen to music, your heartbeat adapts and mimics the rhythm. Now, that‘s astonishing.

S an dr a “Never forget that if there weren‘t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn‘t be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life‘s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matters in the world comes about. So be that one person.” R. Buckminster Fuller

To You Alice

Why do you matter? Here are a few ideas for you... “Rebecca, you matter to everyone and everything around you. You matter because you have power, potential and responsibility. Responsibility? You are responsible. for yourself as well as others and for this planet. This, of course, includes all animals and all other life on it. Why? Because we alone have domination over the earth. Only us humans have the ability to either preserve or destroy all life on this planet. We lay claim to the earth’s resources, and can create or destroy habitats. We alone can transform nature’s materials into great machines and complex structures that enhance our own existence, as well as the existences of all other creatures. We can manipulate the very elements at microscopic levels, and harness nature’s fundamental forces in ways that enable us to emulate the characteristics and natural abilities of other creatures. Therefore, we can fly higher than any bird, and move through or across water faster than any sea creature. Our intellect is undeniably far greater than any other creature. No other animal comes even close. An elephant, dolphin, mouse, or monkey will never be much more intelligent than they are at birth. We, however, have the capacity to continually increase our intelligence and knowledge. Also, humans have a capacity no animal or plant has Understanding. That’s what makes us responsible. That’s what gives us domination over other creatures, our entire planet and with it the respsponsibilty to protect and preserve. We have great power. Power and responsibility go hand-in-hand”

The participants’ lifelong experiences revealed that happiness and life fulfillment revolved around love or simply searching for love.
