Sadhvi Sez: It’s No Secret that Life is Beautiful!


I think that because life is so absurd these days, I am coming to a place inside myself where I feel at peace with it.  Funny, huh?  You too?

In spite of this, I can’t help but notice an occasional “odd thing” popping up on my radar every now and again.  Like how the media has just about dropped any news coverage of the nuclear meltdown(s) in Japan.  Like it never happened.  Oh I know, I mean really, why worry us, the masses, about something that is out of control, right?  It’s just that, oh, never mind…I will just not think about those kind of things.

Something funny that I saw and wanted to pass along…The Secret was a big thing a few years back, and there are people that I bump into who just “discovered” it and can’t believe how amazing it is today.

Like attracts like and it’s really as easy as that!  Just wish for a new car, or even a check in the mail for a million dollars, and it will appear.  I mean, it was all there in the book and you could even see people just like me and you who experienced it: OMG!  Many, many people spent money and made the people who came up with this incredible idea very rich.  Well, it’s no secret that the founders fought and sued each other over who would get all that money and no longer talk to each other.

Here’s a funny clip that made me laugh, from the Austrailain TV comedy satire show,  “The Chaser’s War on Everything” that makes fun of “The Secret”:

Whatever your space these days, I do hope you feel more optimistic than pessimistic, and remember…during these intense times, try to do what one of my favorite new illustrator’s, Katie Daisy, says to do:






About Sadhvi

Sadhvi's trying to find the balance in life over 50 without having any surgery, taking any pills, or killing anyone. She doesn't want to look or feel the way she felt when she was 20 or 30. Trusting that everything is really OK unless you think about it helps her make it through each day. Also realizing that nothing can be done, and, that nothing matters really helps. Gardening (and weeding), poppies and flowers, painting on things, baking, and sharing on Oops50 helps to make it all right too.

  1. @Helen…so glad you found Swanson. Yes, it is so much cheaper for very good quality vitamins, essential oils…shampoo…soap…protein powders, etc. I still habve some poppies blooming…had some of yours, and some purple and some light pink and some wine colored…there are tons of larkspur that I swear the birds in cahoots with the bees, planted! So lush this spring! So good to hear from you.

  2. @Va…oh, i meant to say that practice being patient only if you want to! Va, you are already patience personified, so this doesn’t pertain to you, ‘kay?

  3. That was a funny clip, and so true. One of the guys in the Secret has a few murder charges against him when he vigorously discouraged sweat lodge people from getting fresh air. Hey, I checked out the Swanson site for vitamins. Unbelievable. Something I just bought at Earthfare for 23. was 13. there and shipping not expensive. I’m returning said item! The purple poppies are gorgeous, thanks for sharing.
