Have you ever walked into a book store and just stood there, overwhelmed by the choices? That's how I felt recently while in the San Francisco airport. It was late and I was waiting for a connecting flight to Reno. I wandered through the thriller isle - thinking no - life is scary enough these days, no grisly murders for me, thank you. I ended up in the philosophy isle, which was right next to the science section. My kind of place. But I had a stack of books at home, and more time to kill than a need for a book. So I sent up a question to my spirit guides, guardian angels, the universe, or whatever you want to call that higher source of guidance. What do you want me to read now, I asked? What do I need to know?
I found one book that looked interesting - 2013 - Raising the Earth to the Next Vibration by Richard Grossinger. The man has written several books - utilizing a "unique genre - the poetic textbook." Thumbing through the rather large tome, I found his style to be interesting and erudite. Okay, sounds good, I'll add it to my pile.
At the check out counter was a young man that could only be described as interesting - long hair in dreadlocks, a funny hat. He noticed my book and was immediately interested in the title - especially "raising the vibration" part - and asked me if I had noticed another one - The Book of Destiny - Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012 by Carlos Barrios? He said I could find my Mayan sign in just a few moments at the back of the book, which was about a unique astrology intended to help you find your destiny. He tried to leave the counter to go get the book for me, but a customer came along right at that moment. He kept pointing though - encouraging me to look at it.
Well, the guides, our angels, or whatever we want to call them often speak to us in mysterious ways. That young man with interesting hair and a beautiful smile knew exactly what I needed to read. The book is hard to put down. I'll do a review when I finish it. But in the meantime - I'm going to start paying closer attention when I ask a question. It's quite possible the universe has been answering me all along. I'm sure that young man had no idea why he felt it so important that the lady with jet lag look at that particular book. I thanked him and mentioned that it was important to listen sometimes - especially when you ask to be guided and someone then offers an opinion. He cheerfully raised a book on how to find joy, suggested by someone, that he said was just what he needed to be reading right now.
