Notes from the Universe

I’m a big Mike Dooley fan, and I receive his free “Notes from the Universe” emails. Just thought I’d share today’s note:

If speaking to a spiritual novice during the darker days of human evolution, Shawna, one might explain God, metaphorically, as if “He” were angry, testing, and judgmental.
To someone a bit more savvy, during easier times, one might explain God, metaphorically, as if “She” were always loving, nurturing, and forever conspiring on your behalf.
And to someone on the verge of a total breakthrough, during the latter days of human evolution, one might explain God by asking them to turn up the music, take off their shoes, walk in the grass, unleash the dogs, free the canary, catch a breeze, ride a wave, dance every day, get up early, take a nap, stay out late, eat chocolate, feel the love, give stuff away, earn it back, give some more, and laugh…. Really.
Really, really.
Catch a breeze, Shawna

  1. I love this! It rings so true. I read somewhere, or perhaps someone said it, that our idea of God and heaven and all of that changes through the times. It was something about God/heaven being the happiest times here on earth or our favourite ones or similar. For me, heaven is an early morning during the month of May in Sweden: sitting outside with a cup of coffee and the birds singing with that unbridled joy they seem to have during spring, they always seem to sing the loudest in May! The sound of the neighbour’s tractor across the fields in the distance. Fresh countryside air that carries a scent of hay and pine forest. Stillness and peace and feeling content in my favourite place, the little red house by the foot of the mountain when I sit there on the deck by the west wall….

    By the way! Question! ACIM – does this mean something to you? I may have dreamt it but I’m sure I saw it mentioned on your other blog. Another blog I occasionally read focuses on this and the lady always shares various lessons, all centered around finding peace, joy and balance I believe. Random but wanted to ask – it’s one of the things I’ve been meaning to look up. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Anna!

      I just spent a few minutes Googling photos of Sweden in the spring. Wow, the beautiful tulips! It’s amazingly beautiful. I love your description … the scent of hay and pine forest. I can actually imagine what that would smell like. If I had a bucket list, I’d add Sweden. Seriously, one of these days … it’s more likely that I’ll visit London first, however.

      Funny you should bring up ACIM. ๐Ÿ˜Š I’m a long-time student of A Course in Miracles. The book I’m writing ties in somewhat with ACIM because after I read Marianne Williamson’ book “A Return to Love,” I became really interested in it. Her book is based on it. I was going through a separation at the time and had a small child. It was the one most life-saving thing I could have ever read. It gave me a way to handle what was going on, and I became like a different person. Not all of the time, but some of the time. I quit blaming and starting forgiving, and it just worked like magic. ACIM itself is kind of hard to get into without a workshop or teacher of some kind because it’s so densely written. I used to be only able to manage about a page at time. It’s much easier now. By the way, A Return to Love is one of the books that Oprah says most changed her life. It’s that amazing to me. I hope you give it a try!

      As always, wonderful to hear from you. ๐Ÿ’•
