Dear Universe

Dear Universe,

The answer to life, the universe and everything: The porch.  (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I thought about writing a pro/con list…..

All the good things in life

Counteracted by all the bad things

Or, on a more positive note

All the bad things in life

Counteracted by the good.

But I decided not to write a con list

I know those things backwards and forwards

I know them too well

They keep me awake at night

And apparently giving them life on paper

Would just give them more power~

So I am just going to write a pro list

And see if the universe responds.

Do you think leaving it up to the universe is a way to find bliss? I am of two minds on this………..

Bloggers make good muses! I am getting so inspired by other bloggers and what they provide on their blogs that it is hard not to use them as my muses.

Today on Misifusa’s Blog, (presenceofpresence) she offered her readers a short video featuring Louise Hay, the great inspirational and motivational author and speaker. This lovely lady is 86 and carries with her all kinds of wisdom—but today her words particularly hit home. She was being interviewed and gave some advice on how to deal with problems when they raise their ugly heads.

Ms. Hay says that when she is confronted by a problem, first she says “All is well” then follows it up with: “Everything is working out for my highest good. Out of this situation only good will come, and I am safe.”

She says that uttering these words “quiets your inner turmoil down enough to give the universe time to give us a solution.” Now, you can define universe however you want. For me it is a combination of getting my wherewithal together, combined with a little faith and hope.

The last question she was asked in the interview was:  “Where do you go from here?”

She said: “I don’t know. Life will bring it to me.”

And that is how it goes—life provides us with the next step—all we have to do is believe that “All is well.”

Comforts ~ Day 10 or Woo Woo Day or Things I Want to be Grateful for:

I am projecting here, trying to send the Universe a message by being grateful ahead of time. Woo-woo stuff ~ but some days that is all I got:

1. Thanks for letting me win the lottery—not a free ticket; not $5.00; but something in the six figure range.

2. Thanks for putting all my columns together, creating a bestselling book, and buying the movie rights.

3. Thanks for making all my family and friends healthy, wealthy, and wise.

That is my list—now universe do your stuff.

Definition of WooWoo in my personal dictionary: stuff you are afraid not to believe in because it might be true; stuff your practical mind dismisses; the unscientific study of the law of attraction: or wish it and it will come true.

Please, dear readers, do not take me too seriously here–but universe if you are listening–I am ready.

UNIVERSE ~ Wakey, Wakey!

Okay, Universe, listen up. I am supposed to send out positive messages to you, and in response you are supposed to grant me my every wish. Like a Genie or something. A big blue Genie—like the one in the movie Aladdin with Robin William’s voice.

So what happened here? Who broke the rules? I am sending all this positive energy to you, and what am I getting back? You say I am supposed to be patient. Get in line? That there are millions of positive messages out there, and while mine is important to you, I will just have to listen to the music and wait?

I have read “The Secret”. I am currently reading “The Secret of the Ages” which claims to be “The Master Code to Abundance and Achievement” written by Robert Collier and originally published in 1925. The language is a bit stunted but the message is the same. The blurb at the front of the book says “The time you put in aimlessly dreaming and wishing would accomplish marvels if it were concentrated on one definite object.”

It is obvious to me that I must concentrate on the wrong things. Truly, I want security and peace and wonderful things in my life, and while they seem to come in dribs and drabs, I want {without seeming too greedy here} a bit more than sustenance.

Seriously, Jack Canfield, what am I doing wrong? Maybe part of my problem is that  I do not follow directions well. In Collier’s book, he says that for happiness you should use these words to affirm your right to it by saying: “The joy is brighter than the sun at noonday and Thy Ways of expressing that Joy as countless as the sunbeams that shine upon our path.”

I do not generally walk around making flowery affirmations that I do not quite get. So, if I understand what Collier is saying, joy abounds and all I have to do is capture a few sunbeams?

It is obvious from my reading of Collier’s book that he is a religious man with fervour for his beliefs. He believes in letting the Big Guy take care of us. Now, I sort of do too, though sometimes I think the Big Guy could be a Big Gal—but that is a discussion for another place and time (I am just not sure what place and time.)

Meanwhile, I am not going to give up. I will persevere and stay on “hold”. I will not hang up–I don’t want to lose my place in line.
