For years, I’ve been a big fan of Neil Donald Walsch’s book Conversations With God. I subscribe to his daily emails, and frankly, find myself deleting them more often than sharing or re-reading them. But today I received the greatest one of all. The following email eloquently sums up the simple process I’ve used to get us through the hardest months of our lives.
On this day of your life, Lindsay, I believe God wants you to know…
…that “Why is this happening?” is the most useless question in the Universe.
The only really profitable question is, “What?”
As in, “What do I choose now?” This question empowers.
The “why” question simply perplexes, and rarely satisfies even when it gets a good answer.
So don’t try to “figure it out.” Stop it. Just focus on what you now wish to create. Keep moving forward.
There’s nothing behind you that can possibly serve you better than your highest thoughts about tomorrow.
