The Universe'll Getcha by Dan Reinhold
And so am I.
Well, that is, in comparison to whole universe...
Hope I haven't wiped out all your progess with those self-affirmations.
The fact of matter is universe is HUGE.
It's too big to comprehend, like...the Red Sox winning World Series.
Ooooooh boy, I'll hear about that one...
Many people say that universe...basically nature itself, with all its energy changing and maybe even growing is really, really powerful.
I won't argue with that...seen enough space movies full of super novas going boom to know better.
Then they say universe's power can work for you.
So why can't I cut grass to a uniform length with help of sun and a magnifying glass?
Or recharge a dead battery with a well-aimed lightning bolt?
Uh uh...doesn't work that way, they say.
You gotta allow that immense energy to work for you by channeling your energy to universe.
Sounds like I need a treadmill or something...
Nope, nope...it's all a matter of positive or negative energy, they say.
Positive energy, positive stuff...negative energy...you get idea.
You get what you give. Do unto others. What goes around...
Probably heard those sayings all your life and they've been around who knows HOW much longer before then?
Does that mean you've got to become one of those annoyingly super-cheerful, upbeat types with their face stuck in an irritating permanent grin???
