Radical Assumption and death of a squirrel

You know that "Secret" (book, video, show on Oprah) that everyone was talking about a month or so ago? It was about the law of attraction and how you can use it to create what you want in your life? Nicolas and I were at a seminar over ten years ago where we learned the same principle but it was called "radical assumption". We have used it lots.

Apparently, Gillen has become a master of it. Last night, while the rest of us were eating dinner, Gillen sat at the edge of the pool for an hour. He was really sad about the squirrel being free. I don't know what he was thinking as he sat there all that time. But I looked out the window this morning and saw a dead squirrel floating face down in the four inches of water. We haven't finished filling the pool, so he obviously wasn't leaning in to take a drink. How did that happen? It's never happened!

I dread Gillen knowing about this. It will be creepy to see him excited about this death. But then, maybe he can let it go - this anger at the squirrel population. Nature will take care of them. A balance between the birds and the squirrels can exist.
