    One of the most profound readings I could share with anyone

    "When you come to know that every form of disease, sickness, lack, and limitation are simply the result of wrong thinking, you will have come to know "the TRUTH which shall make you free." You will see how mountains may be removed. If these mountains consist only of doubt, fear, distrust, or other forms of discouragement, they are none the less REAL and they need not only be removed but to be "cast into the sea."

    Your real work consists in convincing yourself of the truth of these statements. When you have succeeded in doing this you will have no difficulty in thinking the truth, and as has been shown, the truth contains a vital principle and will manifest itself."

    -My dearest friend Charles Haanel

    Bryan,
    Some things may be a result of wrong thinking and some sickness may improve with right thinking. As someone who suffers from chronic pain I have found that there is nothing simple about such things. Mindfulness is a skill that can have benefits for anyone but works within some limitations. Clearly something is reverberating in your mind by expressing these thoughts. I hope putting these thoughts in writing in a public forum is helpful as it seems to be what is motivating me to respond to this post.

    Not sure I'd feel comfortable saying this in a room full of cancer patients, but it sounds nice.

    Yeah...that's the problem. No doubt these ideas can help but would likely bring a negative response from cancer patients. My dog (as you noticed on my knife collection post) and I visit with cancer patients, including palliative care, and my experience has been that there is no way to put a positive spin on serious illness and it would be silly to try. I am often surprised by the strength that sometimes comes to people in bad situations, from within. My job, and Abby's job, tends to be momentary distraction from boredom and fear - and listening. There have been many times when these visits have made people smile and cheer up even in the most dire circumstances and also helps me reframe my own situation. If everybody just did a little bit......

    I think everyone finds their own way to cope, including the ideas that Bryan expressed; just that some work better than others in different situations.

    the problem with the cutesy-wootsy paragraph starts with the statement "When you come to know that every form of disease, sickness, lack, and limitation are simply the result of wrong thinking." those cancer patients aren't there because they were "thinking wrong." the OP reads like a snake oil guru's opening spiel.

    Hmmmm...perhaps we should create a 'way, WAY off topic' forum?

    I'm not sure these ideas are even helpful, and think it much more than "likely" that this statement would bring a negative response from cancer patients (and rightfully so). It's incredibly insensitive and deeply insulting to suggest that one's thoughts are responsible for any and all tragedies that befall them in life. Positive thinking is great, but it has its limitations and to suggest otherwise is foolish and potentially (for some) dangerous and destructive.

    I was wondering how this applies to creatures other then human beings, or if it's even supposed to. Lots of animals get cancer, leukemia, etc., and I don't think as a group they typically think negative thoughts.

    Positive thoughts for people are nice (and I for one do not have nearly enough), but I do not see them preventing/ curing a lot of life-threatening diseases.
