The Universe to me & you


Eternity is a really, really, really long time.

I think we’ll be able to squeeze everything in.

Relax.

Peace and blue jeans,
The Universe

Whenever your perspective on something creates emotional pain, it’s always because your perspective is still so narrow that you’ve yet to see all the good it will make possible.

Because it will.

Always,
The Universe

Did you know that all of the “I LOVE YOUs” you feel and say are captured and recorded here?

They’re actually put on display and sometimes even paraded around, so all can bask in their sublime glow.

By now, yours have created enough energy to power a city like Ia%3Fi for 10,000 years, with a beauty so sublime they could bring Mona Lisa to tears, and a healing power sufficient to rearrange the stars, and they have.

You love machine-
The Universe

Tinking small isn’t easy or hard. It’s just a habit. A habit with consequences.

Same for thinking big.

God, I love these things…
The Universe

The Universe to me & you


Even when the earth suddenly shakes, tides unexpectedly surge, and all hope seems lost, in the split second that follows I have a brand new plan, I know what we’ll do, and I’ve got the pedal to the metal.

Just get back in your saddle and ride,
The Universe

It’s not the “unseen” that’s fiction but the seen.

And you know how fiction goes?

You get to make stuff up.

Tallyho,
The Universe

 

 

Un (alt)fel de inventar


Pentru că suntem deja în iulie, la mijlocul lui 2014 (îi vine cuiva să creadă?!?), m-am gândit la Crăciun, Revelion :D :D și implicit mi-am amintit de lista mea cu dorințe de la începutul anului. Consider că e momentul potrivit să o recitesc și să o comentez alături de voi :D

1. Să îmi alimentez constant cu fericire familia. Să fructific la maxim timpul petrecut cu Matei! – Checked, deși se poate și mai mult, și mai bine :)

2. Să vizitez cel puțin 2 locuri de aici: http://www.pinterest.com/ioanadabija14/places-to-visit/ - Am fost în Gura Humorului, o zonă foarte dragă mie. Se pune? :)) Important e că am plecat undeva, m-am simțit foarte bine și m-am încărcat cu energie.

3. Să-mi renovez și reorganizez locuința. – Fix asta fac în această perioadă :D

4. Să dau la școala de șoferi și să iau carnetul de conducere. – Încă nu am făcut acest pas, dar am luat câteva lecții de la un vecin :D Codul Rutier se află (încă) în același loc de cinste: pe desktop.

5. Să-mi cumpăr gantere și saltea pentru yoga, în caz că o să ajung la fel de rar la sală. Șisă merg la masaj! – Chiar azi am vrut să iau gantere, dar nu mai erau în Kaufland. :))

6. Să-mi ”actualizez” garderoba. – Hm, un singur tricou mi-am cumpărat în astea 6 luni. :))

7. Să citesc! - (aproape) În fiecare zi :)

8. Să învăț lucruri noi. – Nu-mi vine nimic în minte, deci probabil nu am învățat cine-știe-ce. Bad for me!

9. Să ofer ajutor oamenilor nevoiași. – Nu-mi amintesc să fi făcut nici asta.

10. Să trăiesc bucuria fiecărei clipe. – Încă încerc să învăț să fac acest lucru. :)

11. Să fiu mai credincioasă și să exprim mai des credința, precum și recunoștința pentru tot ce sunt și am și mi s-a dat. – Cât de cât

12. Să plantez … 10 copaci. Sau 14?! – None. Dar mai am timp :)

13. Să învăț să cânt la un instrument. – Încă nu. :(

14. Să mă accept așa cum sunt. – Mai am de lucru.

Ce să mai zic? Mai am de lucru! :)

The Universe to me & you


What if happiness didn’t have anything to do with what you had, where you’ve been, or who you were, and arose entirely from what you chose to think about, yet nobody knew this?

And what if changing your thoughts, so that you could feel happier more often, would entirely change what you had, who you were, and where you’re headed, yet nobody knew this either?

Do you think if we told them they’d choose to think differently?

Thinking of you -
The Universe

A great trick to getting what you want, fast though one requiring a deep level of understanding, is “insistence.”

Not the kind, however, that expects “life” to behave a certain way, but the kind that expects you to behave a certain way.

Yours truly,
The Universe

*

Life is a chance to do things your way; not the cheapest way, not the most popular way, and not how others think you should.

And a very, very, very precious chance, at that.

Got chills?
The Universe

*

The more you love for the fewest of reasons, the more reasons there’ll be.

You know, life, another, yourself, people, mornings, French toast, sunshine, rain… everything.

More maple syrup?
The Universe

*

Would there be any point in giving you the gift of imagination, the freedom to think as you choose, and dreams that set your soul on fire if even a single one of them couldn’t come true?

I think not.

I love you too, too much.

Tallyho,
The Universe

Ain’t it grand? You know, all the people, millions and millions and millions, who have gorgeous bodies that fill them with pride. Who’ve created enormous wealth – more than they could ever spend. Who have loving friends scattered all over the globe. And most have little more intelligence than a gopher.

They just got busy and didn’t take “no” for an answer.

Think about it.

From a big-time gopher lover,
The Universe

Oh sure you can knock and it will be opened. Seek and it will be found. Ask and it will be answered. But you can also just say “thanks” in advance.

And believing, you’ll see that that which you stood in need of was there all along.

What a system, huh?
The Universe

*

Do you know how you can tell when you’re being watched? When strings are being pulled for you? When the game is rigged in your favor? When the marching band is playing a little louder on your behalf and the cheerleaders begin spelling your name?

Well, whenever it’s a Wednesday, for starters.

“Whoooohoooooo!!!! Ioana’s, back!!”

Tallyho,
The Universe

You might never guess it but sometimes, even here, we get frustrated. The classic case happens at homecoming parties when we hear the guest of honor lament, “Gosh, but I had no idea! I never would have guessed! I didn’t know I was so powerful! I didn’t know I had such an affect on others! I didn’t know I was so responsible for my thoughts, words, and deeds! I just didn’t know!”

But it’s even worse for them when we reply, “Yes… but you could have.”

Ask more questions,
The Universe

If more people knew of how admired they already are they’d be even more admirable.

In admiration,
The Universe
