Poor and content is rich, and rich enough. ~William Shakespeare
Two days ago, I sat in Bellevue Square Mall doing the math on my weekly budget after spending a large part of it on a power cord for my MacBook. As someone used to say, "It doesn't work on paper." How would it work? When did the internet become a higher priority than eating?
I wasn't worried. I didn't feel panicked. I actually felt pretty good and greatly relieved that the problem with my computer was the power cord and not the laptop itself.
"Ironic," I thought. "I'm in one of the most affluent areas in the country, in one of the nicest shopping malls in Seattle and I have no money to shop. "
The Dalai Lama said he loves to go supermarkets and appreciate the abundance. Everything that I read says to see and appreciate the prosperity around me and take the focus off dollars & cents. Two days ago that appreciation came easily. I glanced at the gleaming watches in the display case and thought, "That's for me!" Mont Blanc pens - "That's for me!" Eileen Fisher - "That's for me!"
From there I went to a local coffee shop to hang out for a couple of hours. The thought of money vanished from my mind. And here's what happened.
Someone called me about a massage therapy position to which I applied the day before. Would I be interested in interviewing for a position tomorrow?
My last customer of the day at my part-time job learned that I was an LMP and shared a position that was open.
My friend in Denver called and said there was a check in the mail.
Do you see where I'm going with this? Synchronicity? Manifestations? What's your take on this? Have you had any similar experiences?
