HOW CAN YOU TELL IF YOUR LIFE IS IN HARMONY?
Posted November 11, 2012on:
Athletes whose lives are in harmony (with the universe) are those athletes who perform at a very high level during competition. The quarterback who completes 80% of his passes and scores three touchdowns in a single game. The baseball player who hits three home runs in a single game. The basketball player who scores 30 points in a single game and hits 80% of his (or her) 3-point shots.
In my case, since I’m way past my athletic prime, I have different ways of telling. Sometimes, when I’m about to enter my car and there’s a heavy downpour outside, the rain seems to stop as soon as I step out the front door and once in my car the rain begins and doesn’t end until I arrive a my destination. And then, just like that, it stops. I get out of my car and enter the building and presto! It starts again. Sounds weird, doesn’t it?
Something that’s probably happened to many of you reading this column is when you are driving along in heavy traffic and pull up in front of the building where you need to enter and suddenly out of nowhere, there’s a parking space.
Or how about those times when you’re thinking about someone who you haven’t heard from in quite some time and within minutes, the phone rings and it’s him (or her).
Something that very often happens to me is when I’m driving down the street in my car and I have a sense that I’m going to have an accident. It’s almost as if I’m having a premonition and can see an accident happening and that I’m involved in it. I immediately slow down and begin to drive more cautiously staying alert. And in almost every case, something does happen where the driver of a car unexpectedly pulls out into traffic in front of me without even being aware that I am there. If I hadn’t been on the alert I’m sure I would have smashed right into him.
I point these examples out because they haven’t happened just once, or twice, but many times. Would love to receive your experiences and who knows, they could end up in a future book. ☺ Send them to email@example.com.
