Notes from the Universe

This past week I've been dipping into Mike Dooley's "Notes from the Universe," which has been great fun.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Anyone watching you? Good. This is a double-secret exercise.

Pretend you just received a phone call with wonderful, mind-blowing, life-changing news! As you put down the receiver, your arms fly up over your head with joy. Pumping fists, then waving palms, like you just crossed a finish line before throngs of adoring fans. You cover your face with your hands, trying to contain the euphoria, but it doesn't work, so you reach for the sky again while shaking your head in disbelief. You're grinning, crying, and just so happy! Yes! Life is awesome, and you feel so grateful!!!!!!! Got it? Now if someone catches you doing this, just tell 'em it was your pet psychic who called, and they'll forget everything they just saw.

The Universe xxoo

PS -- Show me what you want to feel, create the feeling within yourself, and I'll then orchestrate the circumstances, however outlandish, that will help you feel it again, and again, and again.

***

It's not real! Don't go there!

The things and events of time and space are like Play-doh; fictional, make-believe.

What matter are what you feel in your heart and the dreams that flit through your head. This is the ultimate test, to discover what's real in a sea of illusions.

You can do it or you wouldn't be here. Don't look to the world for clues, not even to your family, friends, or career. Look within. You decide what's right. You decide what's possible. You write the script and lay down the laws. You are the door, the path, and the light.
***

Whosoever may torment you, harass you, confound you, or upset you is a teacher. Not because they're wise, but because you seek to become so.

I find myself regularly acting out the first "double secret" exercise. except i really am joyful, usually for something like the sky, or seeing a hawk on the way to work, a rainy day in boston for which i've left my umbrella at home...again. Being euphoric in public places allows others to smile and perhaps be a bit grateful. Thanks for finding these words, being inspired by them, and also for sharing them with us.

hi, piccolo niccolo! i'm with you -- finding pleasure in the small surprises/sychronicities means everything, methinks. i like that the universe has a sense of humor! better still, it's always nice to find folk like you walking the same road. good luck with the umbrella! =)
