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

In moments of high stress, anxiety, or fluster, instead of hoping, wondering, or worrying, remember your double-secret resources of skipping, twirling, and humming.

Try pretending that all you now believe to be real, is not. And that all you wish to be real, is. If only for a few minutes each day.

Then, try acting like all you wish to be real already is real. With just a word here, a sentence there, or some little demonstration. If only in private.

Before long, you won’t even remember if what you used to believe was real or just a dream.

I’m pretending you already do this stuff whenever you want change,

Some angels choose cleverly disguised lives in time and space, just to help folks get past judging by appearances.

No, they’re not much to look at, listen to, or dance with, and most would never guess they’re angels… but that’s the point.

Every soul is beautiful,
The Universe

A little heads up on an addiction that afflicts all really old souls:

Giving love, eventually, becomes an even greater need than receiving love.

Love,
The Universe

Live your dreams now, to any degree that you can. With every purchase. Every decision. Every hello and goodbye. Every assignment. Every conversation. Every meal. Every morning, afternoon, and evening. And never, ever, ever look back. Reframe every thought, word, and deed from the perspective of the person you’ve always dreamed you’d be, as if your life was already as you’ve always dreamed it would be. Die to yesterday’s illusions and be reborn to the truth of your vision.

And let’s just see if you can handle the torrent of treasures I send your way.

Your greatest admirer, biggest fan, and truest friend -

Here’s a subtle tip, to be kept strictly confidential, on how to beat resistance:

First, pretend once you just break the ice, someone else will be taking over to finish the job for you.

Second, while breaking the ice tell yourself that whatever you do, however it turns out, however much you like or dislike your progress, the entire world will be going bonkers over your phenomenal talent, standing in line to catch a glimpse of you, writing books about your childhood, and asking their social media friends how come you’re so totally cool.

Ready?
The Universe

Send them love.

Wish them peace.

See them happy.

Everyone, always, forever.

And prepare to be astounded,
The Universe

Imagine standing at the edge of a forest, and that you want to reach the other side.

Would you walk a straight line through it? Or, might the path meander in every possible direction, around boulders, between trees, along a stream, feeding the deer, conversing with the owls, and roasting marshmallows?

Yeah, every possible direction, because this is how things are in a forest.

Tree!
The Universe

The Universe to me & you


It’s like, all those really good thoughts of yours that have NEVER become things, are simply gathering, mingling, and growing like compound interest, until there are just enough to burst into your life, Crazy heart and not so smart brains and flowers and ponies flying in every direction, hushing naysayers and finally convincing you of how much you’re loved.

“Until there are just enough…”
The Universe

Ever have a dream at night when you wondered in the middle of it whether or not you were dreaming? Knowing that if you were just dreaming, you could rewrite the scary parts and enhance the happy parts; run faster, jump higher, laugh your head off; summon guides, travel through time, read minds; levitate, manifest, do the impossible. But then, you thought to yourself, “No, this just can’t be a dream, it’s way too real.”

Yeah, you’re having one right now.

Gosh you’re good -

Sometimes, when a tiny series of the most unpredictable events occur that otherwise make no sense at all… it’s just my way of winking and hinting that something big is about to happen.

I said, “Yes!”,when you first thought of it.

“Now!” when you first asked.

And, “Hallelujah! So be it! Coming right up!” when you first gave thanks in advance…

Believing in you,
The Universe

Sometimes, it’s easy to forget that you always have options.

That your power has remained intact.

And that everything, up until now, has just been practice for the really, really good stuff.

When you get to a place where you’re seeing the positive in others more than the negative, it means you’re doing the same for yourself.

You amazing, wondrous vessel of spontaneity, creativity, beauty and strength -

When you spend money whether a little or a lot, wisely or not, do you celebrate that you’re creating opportunities, dancing with life, exchanging energy, supporting economies, feeding families, lessening poverty consciousness, demonstrating courage, validating life, eradicating fear, inviting magic into your life, and lifting humanity higher into the light?

I thought so.

Let’s pop some tags -
The Universe

In the beginning:
Work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, play.

Upon discovering how to spiritually do more, be more, and have more:
Work, play, work, work, play, work, play, work, work, play.

Upon discovering you don’t have to do more, be more, and have more:
Play, play, nap, play, play, play, play, nap, play, play, play.

Let your player out -

There was a time in the life of every hero, champion, master, and tycoon, when they said to themselves, “I will not wait any longer.”

And no matter how near or far away their dream then seemed, they began to take action, every day, no matter what.

No matter what,
The Universe

Being super fabulous can only come from being a super you.

And being a super you pretty much comes from using me, constantly.

Life is easy,
