Why Bad Things Happen to Me?
In 2007, a 23-year-old
Baltimore man slipped on a patch of ice and broke his wrist. This young
man is a professional swimmer. And the cast on his wrist kept him out of
the water for two months.
His dreams of Olympic gold medals seemed out of reach. He was

setback. A stumbling block.
But this young man was dedicated. He didn't want his years of training
to fall completely by the wayside. So he spent hours using a kickboard,

Knowing how to transform "bad things" into "good things" is one of the
keys to Spiritual Power.
