What a person believes to be true about life, about other people, about faith or luck, for instance, plays a very powerful role in determining how a person lives. Because what we believe is intimately connected to our emotions, our beliefs influence our emotional response to life. The empowering belief patterns and positive mental attitudes that we posses are, therefore, essential to create a healthy body as well as a healthy life.

We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through our tragedies and challenges and to help each other move through the many painful episodes of our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds — the strength to overcome them and the lessons that we are meant to receive through them. Wounds are the means through which we enter the hearts of other people. They are meant to teach us to become compassionate and wise.
