darkemeralds: A falcon taking flight from a falconer's arm (Flight)

The second of Neale Donald Walsch's Three Secrets To Ending the Struggle and Making Your Life Work is that there's really nothing wrong, nor has there ever been.

My problems with this second secret are, I must admit, mostly on behalf of other people, in whose lives plenty is wrong, and who would understandably object to being told that turning everything into a celebration will make it right. It would be bullshit spouted from the mouth of a privileged American man with a string of massive bestsellers funding his every need.

However, this is me. If I only read this secret for myself, I can admit that it's largely true, and that the things that have gone wrong in my life have made me stronger, given me wisdom and compassion (to the extent that I have either), and turned out to be blessings in disguise.

This is Walsch's least-accessible, most mystical secret, and he articulated it poorly in the interview I listened to, and I imagine it's the one that encounters the most resistance. I'll say this, though: having it in mind made me a lot more laid-back about my recent computer problems. And maybe, if I practice it on the good days, when the bad days come, I'll be able to handle them.
