“Medical intervention does not do the healing. It's a physical mechanism. The power of the healing is the power that grows your fingernails, the digesting of breakfast, that we had home, getting our heart beating… the whole spiritual or cosmic intelligence that does that. Further, God or the universe decided to make me unemployable, after two positions were eliminated. So I went through my valley of the shadow death, if you will.” In this episode, Christian and I discuss shifting from the glass is half-empty mindset to the glass is half-full mindset.
