A friend once told me that when you grow spiritually and become who you are, pure, your life will run smoothly.
To me this means that my thoughts are aligned with what happens on the outside. You may recognize it from your own experience or saw it in a movie. For example, you drive your car with your spouse and you talk about somebody whose name is John. The moment you mention John, your eye falls on a sign that says ‘John’s fish’ or something that carries the name John. It is as if your life is a movie and all you see is a decor of your play. These ‘coincidences’ happen to me more and more.
This morning, my friends of the DHL package service stopped in front or our house. As soon as I saw this big yellow truck, I quickly scanned my memory to see what I ordered on the internet the last couple of days. I couldn’t come up with anything so I continued playing Empire Avenue. Then somebody knocked on the back door. The DHL people know me because I order regularly on the internet and they know they can come through the back door instead of ringing the front doorbell, which is only for queens and kings.
I saw him carrying a flag pole wrapped in bubbled plastic. Through the plastic I saw an orange bulb the flag pole had on top. The young yellow man came in and I told him ‘hey, this is the second flag pole I got this week and I only ordered one. They must have made a mistake”. “Well I can take it back” he told me and I quickly answered “no I’ll keep it, if they want it back, they can call me”.
I put the second flag pole next to the already unwrapped one and scanned my memory again. I realized that, for a couple of times, I thought about how nice it would be to have 2 flag poles. One for our house and one for our garden cabin. I also remembered visualizing it. But never took action to order a second one. So I guess the universe ordered it for me.
These things happen more and more often. Even yesterday evening. I was just pondering on how nice it is to have friends over in our house and I always run around my house with the thought that I will have visitors soon. My children love visitors too and I love having my garden full of children running around or family staying over. And when they do, I do my best in making life comfortable for them. Making coffee, sending a kid to the loo when I see him suppressing his needs because he wants to play. Bake bread or just relax (a good host needs to know how to relax).
I also thought about how it would be to have a friend live in our garden cabin permanently. At 9 pm the doorbell rang. An odd hour to ring somebodies doorbell …. . A man whom I did not recognize, stood in front of me. He told me that he was looking for a place to stay. If I could rent out my garden cabin. My first reaction was “No, certainly not”. He asked me why. “It would cross our sense of privacy” I told him, and wished him good luck with his search. I couldn’t imagine renting a part of my house to a stranger, but after he left, I realized that I did wish for a friend staying in our garden cabin…
Sometimes the universe mixes things up I guess.
