I subscribe to Mike Dooley’s notes from the universe at TUT.com. The notes come in your email inbox every weekday, and they’re always uplifting, always positive and forward looking. Even if they do nothing else, they at least give you a smile or a bright spot to begin your day with ~ which I think is very cool. But every now and then, and actually more often than you might think, they hit the nail on the head for me.
Today’s note from the universe is a perfect example. It said:
“Rebecca, let’s pretend, just for today, all day long, throughout our every thought and decision, that life is easy, that everyone means well, and that time is on our side. Okay? And let’s pretend that we are loved beyond belief, that magic conspires on our behalf, and that nothing can ever hurt us without our consent. All right?
And if we like this game, Rebecca, will play tomorrow as well, and the next day, and the next, and pretty soon, it won’t be a game at all, because life, for us, will become those things. Just as it’s become what it is today.
You’re getting warmer,
Now, I know that the same note from the universe goes out to everybody on the mailing list. And I know that there is a macro or algorithm or whatever it’s called that inserts my name to make it seem more personal. I’ve been involved with marketing online long enough to know that.
I don’t care. Because you know what? I believe this is just one of the myriad ways the universe, in whatever form you perceive it, tries to communicate with us every day.
Thoughts become things. When you boil it down, that’s Mike Dooley’s entire message. Or as Buddha put it: “All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.” And they’re not the only ones. You can find the same truth expressed in everything from religious texts to pop culture. (Oooh ~ what a cool game that would be, right?)
Knowing that, why would you choose anything but the best thoughts to think?
What the universe recommends in today’s note is pretty much what I try to do on a daily basis. But it’s not always easy, and sometimes I forget – so turning it into a game? Even better!
If you like, we can keep score and get together and compare notes! I’ll start ~ in my next blog post on Friday.
Hey! We could even play on the beach! Oh, I am SO there!
See you on the beach!
