Not only a remarkable story, Jill Bolte Taylor’s story beautifully captures the dichotomy we know all too well: the rational self versus the spiritual part of a whole.

Our left controls our understanding of time, language, planning, and ourselves. Our right includes our senses, our feelings, and our spirituality.

P.S. She also has a wonderful interview with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday that further explores the significance of her experience, especially her recovery.
