The Universe is Wise

I get a note from "The Universe" everyday. It used to be I would have to find it through meditation or that AhHa moment of realization, more often than not it would come to me while laying in bed at night replaying the events of the day and thinking about how I want tomorrow to be even better. Some greater part of the Universe speaking to me in the twilight moments of the day -- Om ॐ  and all that.

Now it comes by email. (I love technology)

OK, well, Mike Dooley, author of Notes from the Universe and New Thought guru, actually sends the emails to me, and about 30,000 other people who have signed up for the notes from his site tut.com.  They are pre-measured doses of good thought in the morning, and after a while of getting them, this one came in last week and it resonated with my life and this blog:

How adventurous would life be, Lynette, if you were "challenge free"? If you had the perfect body, perfect self-esteem, everyone adored you, and you won the lottery every Sunday?

Not.

Now what if, painful as they may temporarily be, you could choose a life during which challenges might arise whenever your thinking needed expansion, on the sole condition that every one of them could be overcome no matter how daunting they may at first seem?

Everything makes you more,
    The Universe

Yes. Totally agree with you Universe. That is what I try to get at in each challenge I accept and in each one I face. 

As much as it would totally rock my world to win the lotto and be perfect all the time, it must be kind of boring and those things would not hold much value.  Working for a living makes me really appreciate my time-off and encourages me to make the most out of my vacations. Would I have talked the Hubs into a road-trip adventure around the Pacific Northwest for our honeymoon or would we have gone on the typical cruise/island vacation? Would I have tons of "stuff" in my life? Perpetual clutter of physical things and of too many friends? 


Heck, it is good that we are imperfect. Overcoming things gives us that much more self-worth and strength. I am glad my chastising Super-Ego and realistic Ego to tamp down that hedonistic Id. Otherwise I may give myself over to complete chaos, the Seven Deadly Sins, and complete boredom. Sure, sometime we chastise and tamp-down too far, but there still is that bit of anarchy that pushes right back.

Here's to balance in your life.  Here's to getting over the challenges in your life whether with grace or with klutzy pratfalls. Any mountain can be moved one stone at a time.
