If you are trying to get ahead in life, you first have to realize that nothing is impossible with the right timing. I was needing to cross a major highway the other day, I was crossing the highway to pick up a bird and bury it.
The problem was this is a very very dangerous highway, one that was built long ago when they didn’t build any shoulders or places to pull off. Basically, it’s just 6 lines with concrete on either side. I needed to get across to this bird, but traffic was flying at about 55.
I knew this was a bit of a death wish as there were no breaks in traffic. But I just put it in my mind I was going to do it somehow. At that exact instant, traffic stopped out of nowhere and so I was like… Ok then.
I ran as fast as I could across the street and then ran back with the bird in my shovel. I turned to look and just at that moment a cop had started to slow the flow of traffic up the way by running serpentine (what they do is drive left and right and right to left to stop cars from going fast towards an upcoming accident on the freeway).
I found this particular scenario highly unlikely. What are the odds that traffic would stop exactly when I needed it to in order to keep me safe? Must be highly unlikely. Anyhow, what is the lesson here? Well sometimes stuff just works out and you have no clue how or why; but it just does. This is how the universe works. If you are doing something that the universe needs to get done, it will make a way for you.
That’s the bottom line. So don’t overthink what you need to get done in life if it is of merit the Dao will make it happen for you. Cool stuff happens when you are in flow with your own life, that’s where the magic lives!
