“Make Your Heartbeat Match the Beat of the Universe”


“Anyone informed that the universe is expanding and contracting in pulsations of eighty billion years has a right to ask, ‘What’s in it for me?’”   (Peter De Vries)



“Let me tell you something you already know.  The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows.  It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.  You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit.  It’s about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward.  That’s how winning is done!  Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth.  But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody!  Cowards do that and that ain’t you!  You’re better than that!”    (Rocky Balboa movie, 2006)



“The only person who can pull me down is myself, and I’m not going to let myself pull me down anymore.”   (C. JoyBell C.)



“A Note From the Universe –

Do you know how to give folks what they most, most, most want from you without even asking them what it is?

In all regards, just be yourself.

That’s what they were after when they manifested you into their lives.     Whoa!

   (signed)  The Universe”    (Mike Dooley, Notes from the Universe, June 12, 2013)



“Until you commit, nothing happens, but when you do commit, the entire universe rallies to your aid.”   (Daniel Acuff)



“’The goal of life,’ says the mythology scholar Joseph Campbell, ‘is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe.’”    (Philip T. Sudo)

One thought on ““Make Your Heartbeat Match the Beat of the Universe”

  1. After reading everything on above I had to choose either to applaud to what looked so nicely at first glimpse or to think…
    I have read “…and get what you’re worth” … personally I wish just a cup of coffee and somebody to chat about the meaning of the life we have. Is that a little? Does it mean I am a looser if I can satisfy my body with just a cup? Am I a looser?
    God gives us as the reason to live as willingness to do that and the strength to move on in a constant gratitude and awe, but without God my life costs nothing .
    While everything above looked nicely to my bodily I, the question what for was all that to me? was growing up with all new quote.
    The Rocky Balboa movie, 2006 reminded me the invitation to rely on self. Yet that would inescapably would lead to the failure ultimately.
    I am reading ““The only person who can pull me down is myself” that’s true, but I can stand up only if God will give me His hand of support.
    Everything you wrote looked so beautifully but as you put a stress on “I” everything became the threatening.
