Exactly what DO you believe? Do you have divine spiritual beliefs? Or positive humanistic beliefs? Or negative despairing beliefs? What you believe determines how you will act–we all know that from today’s political scene. Our biological evolution tells us to look out for anything that might affect our survival. So we are actually biologically programmed to look for what might go wrong. What might be a danger. Can we go against our own DNA and practice beliefs that help us to feel whole and hopeful? Rev. John Young thinks so and in this wonderful PT talk, will give us strategies for practicing beliefs that benefit us.
