Right Place Right Time

  • What if you knew that you were exactly at the right place at the right time and people were looking for exactly what you have to offer?
    I have heard folks whine and complain about ‘being at the wrong place at the wrong time.’  I sense that what they mean is that they found their experience to be slightly uncomfortable or downright painful. I have felt that way at times, wondering had I made different choices, I would have ended up elsewhere.  It is one of those endlessly imponderable inquiries, since I don’t know for sure if life events are beshert (Yiddish for ‘meant to be’) or if they are random. I call that my Forrest Gump question. Remember that he always seemed to right in the thick of things at pivotal moments in world history? Maybe it is a combination. What I do know is that my decisions (conscious or unconscious) lead to actions that lead to outcomes. The good news is that I can always re-evaluate and take detours that guide  me to just where my soul most needs to go for its Highest Good.
    Messages are reinforcing. Yesterday I was on my way to the office where I am employed as an addictions counselor who works with clients who are in various stages of recovery from drug and alcohol abuse. I had my eyes on the road and was particularly attentive since we had just been through a snow storm, there was some black ice and sun glare, so drivers were going fairly slowly. I was feeling a bit impatient because I was going to be getting there later than planned and called our office manager to ask her to let my client know and to hang in there. The woman hadn’t yet arrived, so I settled back and kept driving. My  ‘company’ in the car was my friend Lew Doty, in the form of his new CD called Angel (which I had reviewed for Beliefnet  a  few weeks ago  http://www.beliefnet.com/columnists/blissblog/2013/11/angel.html ). The lyrics of his song called How The World Is Changed were streaming through the Jeep and I was singing along enthusiastically:

    I speak my word into the Law

    The Law of Mind

    The Mind of God

    This is how the world is changed

    This word is powered by belief

    Belief in God

    Belief in Me

    This is how the world is changed

    A moment later, I gazed to my right and saw an 18 wheeler slowly motoring next to me and I laughed as I caught the serial number emblazoned in black on the snow, salt and mud splattered back of the vehicle……GOD (and then the rest of the digits which I can’t remember at the moment).  A minute sooner or later and I would have missed it. Right place, right time.

    I drove for another five minutes and pulled into the parking lot. Just as I was turning off the engine, I noticed that my client had also arrived. She smiled as we both reached the door at the same time “You’re late,” she teased. “So are you,”  I responded and then added, “Nah, we’re both right on time.”

    I have had so many experiences like that. As much as I endeavor to get places at the agreed upon time and I plan and prepare, there are unexpected detours and delays and ALWAYS I find that it works magically. If I were to get myself agitated (and I have), it seems that traffic slows in proportion to my inner speediness. Amazing how that works.

    Consider your own pivotal moments when you and just the perfect people and events show up on the stage of your life as if being divinely directed. I will be speaking on this topic at New Thought Philadelphia (a Science of Mind community) this Sunday 12/15/13

Pass It Onword
Back in November, as I was meandering the aisles at the Mind Body Spirit Expo in King of Prussia, PA, I came to a booth at which two women were beaming beatifically. In front of them was a table of simple wares. Stones engraved with a word-  gratitude, strength, inspire, forgive, and kindness, we

How We Grieve
  "When my Guru died in 1973, I assumed that because of the important part he played in my life, and the love I felt for him, I would be inundated with grief. Surprisingly, I was not. In time, I came to realize why. He and I were so well established in Soul love that, in the years since he l

Recovering Human Doing
Lounging in bed, surrounded by lots of pillows and snuggled under quilts as I am typing these words. It is a drowsy, dozy Sunday morning. The radio is playing easing into my day tunes.  My standard weekend fare begins with Sleepy Hollow on WXPN which is a Philly based member supported Public Radio

Thriving Artist
Last night, I attended a holiday gathering for a group of talented artists, writers, publishers, radio hosts, producers, as well as PR and marketing folks.
