Without the need to plan ahead I am able to witness life unfold in perfect synchronicity. This blog and website is dedicated to sharing some of the seemingly unbelievable synchronicities that have been experienced. My lakefront house rented out for most of August. Then a friend in Sedona posted an online note asking if anyone wanted to house and cat sit a beautiful home surrounded by national forest in Sedona for the month of August. So the next thing I know, an hour after I leased a new Jeep Wrangler at the end of July I was driving to Sedona. I figured after a month in Sedona I would get some clarity as to the priority on where to take my work and how best I might be able to serve. That is an important question many people ask themselves.
This new Jeep was sweet and had a new Nav system. When I was driving through Amarillo Texas, at night, I used the Nav system to find the closest restaurant. This one Chinese restaurant seemed to capture my attention more than the others that popped on the screen. When I arrived the restaurant was a hole in the wall, but it was busy, usually a good sign. A rice dish seemed to attract my attention. A silent voice told me that if I ordered this dish I would get sick, but when the waiter came to take my order I witnessed myself ordering that very dish.
I haven't been sick in over 5 years and cant even remember the last time I had a cold. So perhaps I had to burn through some unconscious guilt that I needed to suffer a little... because it would not be fair of me to remain healthy while so many others are sick or suffering. After I paid I took a few steps toward the door and looked back quickly. Then I noticed the fortune cookie on the counter beside the bill I just paid. Aha, the fortune cookie. That is why I was drawn to go to this restaurant. I was drawn to this restaurant because the message in the fortune cookie was specific guidance. So I reached for the fortune cookie and cracked it open.
