India Called and the Universe Answered!

I have often read that when you follow your heart, the universe provides what you need – not necessarily what you want, but certainly what is required. And being genetically wired to be an optimist, I have always believed that to be generally true. But as for REALLY providing – well the cynic in me attributed that to wishful thinking rather than fact.

That is, until the day I signed up for a yoga retreat in India. If you read my page “India Calls” you will know that I have just signed up for this experience. My heart told me that this was a trip that just had to be done. So, against all the usual cautious and conservative conventions that I normally employ, I registered and sent in my deposit.

Not two hours later, while fussing about the money I would need to come up with in order to pay for the trip, the phone rang. Someone I had not talked to in over a year was calling, wondering if I would be interested in doing some contract writing for their organization. Good thing we weren’t connected by a videophone or the caller would have seen me standing there with my mouth wide open!

I was dumbfounded, delighted and absolutely stunned! The rational side of me is shaking her head and telling me this is just a lucky coincidence. The spiritual side of me is smiling with a certain degree of smug satisfaction, as if to say, “See? I told you so!”

Lucky coincidence or the universe providing? What do you think?

I know for me, I am positive the universe just gave me a big thumbs up, not to mention a huge leg up!
