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  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?


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.


  1. Yay, you are back! I have just spent the majority of two days of my life reading your entire blog. I have ordered my Breville juicer and it arrived today. My first CSA order is available Sunday. I plan to juice a little and eat a lot of raw fresh fruits and veggies next week and then the following Sunday, it is happening. I've been a vegetarian for 10 years but I'm ready to kick the diary and eggs. And I weigh over 300 pounds, yes, I said it outloud. Yikes. After the 92 day feast (shooting to walk in Angela's footsteps) I won't weigh over 300 pounds anymore and am hoping like crazy that I can kick my overeating habit, my sugar habit and maybe a couple more bad habits.

    Thanks so much for this blog, Lynnette. It's inspirational and real.


  2. Jenn, Thanks for reading! As I sip my Watermelon-pineapple-lime juice this morning, I am so happy to have inspired someone out there with my "project". Reboot your body, your life, and your self-esteem. By doing something all the way through, I gained so much. Be sure to check in with a Doc throughout this process to avoid any issues and to monitor your blood work. That is one regret - I wish I had a starting blood panel and an ending one, just so I could show some real numbers. If you ever need a cheerleader - Ra Ra! You can do it Jenn!
