Change Is For The Better

“All change is change for the better. There is no such thing as “change for the worse.” Change is the process of Life Itself, and that process could be called by the name “evolution.” And evolution moves in only one direction: forward, and toward improvement. Therefore, when change visits your life, you can be sure things are turning for the better. It may not look that way in the very moment change arrives, but if you will wait a while and have faith in the process, you will see that this is true.”
ā€” Neale Donald Walsch

  1. I have to respectfully disagree about this one. Walsch is clearly unfamiliar with the Irish Elk, a beast that fell victim to what’s called “runaway selection” – evolution toward a trait that ultimately killed off the species.

  2. Please explain how change is better for someone living in these situations:
    Hiroshima after atomic bomb
    Europe after Holocaust
    Australia after Europeans arrived
    Europe after plague
    Syria after ISIS
    Any family after a suicide

    “All change is change for the better.” sounds alot like “Everything happens for a reason.” – easy to say from the comfort of your warm home.

  3. Enjoyed the quote without much reflection before reading ET’s take.
    Bummer, but entirely accurate regardless of original context or intention.
