Sometimes my feet know what my mind ignores and lead me to places where the answer to my thoughts and prayers is awaiting in the form of a visual treat, or a song, or a sudden smile.
This triggers little epiphanies, new sequences of connections that defy logic, but paradoxically make sense and often, make me awaken to a kinder mood. I guess that my inner being (who seems to have a rationality of its own) manages to inform me about the right direction when I am unwilling to listen.
One day that I was totally overwhelmed by working and family issues, they led me to a shop that was selling this signal. Now it "lives" with me. Time has proved it to be true.
When I look back, I can see that those things that I thought were problems, actually were blessings in disguise:
The students that I shouldn´t have guided because they were taking another practice program, ended up being those who took more advantage of my teachings and have appreciated them more
The little disputes between my mom´s caregivers which bothered me so much, have showed that some of them were not reliable
The lack of support from most of my coworkers, have made me see the true nature of our relationship clear as water
The new atmosphere that the economic crisis is creating at university, is helping me to set new priorities and new boundaries
And all this have made me realize the true impact of my inner work on my life and the great importance of being centered and focused on me, not in a selfish way but in a healthy way
Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever found answers in unexpected places?
