I teach on syncronicites, or Strands as I call them. They used to arrive to me in extremely direct ways... Seeing 40 El Caminos in one day, walking directly into the arms of the man who was to become my partner at a concert with 40,000 people... Very direct, can't miss it stuff.
You go around thinking the Universe is random and then this stuff happens and you know it isn't so...
Recently, I came into a Twitter by Iyanla Vanzant. I don't know how she got on my feed... She was just there. I noticed her comment, in the way that you do. There's just this flash of knowing...
A day later, I was preparing for my weekend at INATS in Denver, and I saw she was going to be a guest speaker. My radar went up... That was weird.
By this time I have not noticed I am in a Strand on the esteemed Ms. IV... I'm oblivious... But the Universe is working on me.
The Next day, I head into the lovely town of Independence Oregon, population 15k or something. Get a croissant and latte at this awesome little bakery. Decide, on absolute whim, to step into the tiny used book store that's been there for decades... I have not been in that store for five years, six?
But this time, it's Iike a tractor beam is pulling me in... I can't stop myself.
I walk directly back to the spirituality and self help section, and here's were it gets weird. There's No One in the store... except in that particular aisle. In fact, standing Right in front of where I want to stand, there is a woman.
It's so awkward in fact, I saw something like "I'm not trying to crowd you, I just like this section too". And she says Nothing. She doesn't respond or move or nod or shrug... Almost like... Almost like she's not a human, or she's not really there... Or????
Because she's standing where I want to stand, I have to stand in front of a different section. I look up, and think I see a book by Kurt Vonnegut... The lettering on the spine is very swirly.
I pull the book out... And this is the only book I have liked at or touched this entire time in the store.., again, tractor beam is on High... And of course this is a book by Iyanla Vanzant.
I start laughing. I have no idea what any of it means, and it's not important... I realize simply that i am in a Strand, and i am being guided.
I buy the book. I head outside into the sun and open the book to a random page, where I read "The only requirement for you to become a living example of faith is to work on yourself."
Which is the answer to the question I have been asking the Divine all week.
