the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

Do you have faith in faith?

Marie, from Canada, wonders

Do you believe that faith can cure physical disease?

According to her card, a family member has pretty strong beliefs that it can.

As for me, I believe that for people who believe, faith is a strong motivator to do what's needed to feel better, and it may even exert a greater influence than we understand. There's an interesting article on just this topic in the current issue of Scientific American Mind magazine.
