‘The soul has been given its own ears to hear things the mind does not understand.’ Rumi
I have a pretty good intuition, but sometimes its laser beam accuracy surprises even me. Yesterday morning I woke up absolutely compelled to write a letter to an old friend. I hadn’t seen this person in quite some time but just had a sense it was time to reach out and say hi. I had no explanation for my sense of urgency.
Although I had no conscious idea of why this letter writing felt so pressing to me, I trusted my gut, sat down at my computer, and wrote like a fiend. My words flowed onto the page without much thought at all.
As I finished, I looked up at the clock and could see I had to leave the house right then in order to make it on time for a meeting. I hit print while I gathered my coat and car keys. I jumped in my car, threw the unfolded pages of the letter onto the passenger seat and figured that I would find an envelope, and look up the recipient’s mailing address later in the day.
I pulled up to the building where my meeting was to be held and before I ever made it inside, a familiar voice wafted through the air in my direction- and I will be darned if it was not the intended recipient to my letter. I was stunned as there was no way I could have predicted this chance encounter.
What a great reminder- that when Destiny delivers a message, there is never any postage due.
