I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason, and that people are brought into your life for a reason. Even when bad things happen, good can come out of it, although sometimes it takes a long time for this to be evident.
Several weeks ago a window in my kitchen needed to be repaired. The man who repaired it was Jose, a Mexican immigrant. Don’t ask me how, but we ended up talking about God, about the importance of Serving God, and the strength of spirit that comes to us when we allow Him to work through us. He told me about a particularly challenging period of his life, and how he worked through it. While the specifics were different, this was something we both shared. I shared with him my own experiences, and how, when stripped of material possessions, professional status, “connections” and other such things, when we come down to it, all we have is ourselves and our connection to God. We ended up speaking at length, and he reminded me of something I knew but had forgotten.
I believe in the power of Prayer. Jose also offered to pray for the same thing for me. Normally I do not accept other people’s energies because all too often, cloaked in their outer layer of well meaning, there are underlying issues which I don’t want brought into my life. However, with Jose it was different. His Ego Marble was virtually a zero. Anyone who is truly connected to their Spirituality should have an Ego Marble of Zero, because as this goes up, the ability to let the truth in goes down. They cannot hear what another person is saying.
So there we were, with the two of us praying for the same thing for me. Manifesting what we need does not always occur instantaneously. Sometimes, like a haiku, what we pray for can come in riddles, hints, and a bit of a puzzle that we need to put together ourselves to derive a greater understanding.
Last Friday God delivered Jesus to me….. an old acquaintance (his name is Jesus) whom my mom and I were both very fond of. He was in my neighborhood and left me a note, we had a nice conversation and Saturday evening we had dinner.
