Dr. Norman Shealy:
The birth of our first child.

Why are you optimistic about the future of humanity in this time of uncertainty and fear?
Truth and Light always succeed. There have always been problems and naysayers, BUT I have noted for many decades that good always outweighs bad. Justice is sometimes slow but it is inevitable.

What holistic practice is a part of your life to help you maintain health and wellness and to connect with your spiritual Self?
I believe unequivocally that Every Thought is a Prayer. This “thought” is always in my awareness. I do not Believe — I
Know that the purpose in life is good.

What single message do you want to share with us from your heart?
There are some things that you cannot change. For these:

Accept what you cannot change

Have no need to know why

Detach from those things you cannot change
