More Notes From the Universe: Life, Dreams, and Happiness

November 10, 2008

I’ve just finished reading More Notes From the Universe: Life, Dreams, and Happiness by Mike Dooley.  Dooley, who appeared on the movie The Secret, writes one of those little books that should sit near a chair, that you pick up to read a few sentences or paragraphs, and then you contemplate the ideas and images it brings up.  Here are a few of the thought provoking comments he makes:

  • Believe it or not, if it weren’t for your so-called issues, problems, and challenges, there’d be no other way you could become even happier, cooler, and more enlightened than you have ever been before.
  • Go ahead, want it all.  Just learn to be happy before it arrives, or you may not notice when it does.
  • Thinking big but acting small, is the same as thinking small.  Shiver me timbers.  Reading this and nodding in wholehearted agreement, but not doing a little acting “as if your dreams have come true: in the days that follow, is the same as not reading this.
  • Actually, while it’s fun to think about how fantastically different life will be once your ship comes in, the truth is, the only thing that will really change, is you. Hey, why wait?
