Today, as I was driving down the highway to meet a new friend at a new Starbucks, I drifted and missed my turn. Fortunately, my faithful GPS, Chatty Cat, alerted me to my oversight with the immortal word, “Recalculating.”
I know people who go absolutely ballistic when their GPS says that word. They hear it as a criticism and insist the GPS is really saying, “You stupid, worthless cow. How could you have missed that turn. I gave you plenty of notice. You never listen to me. You’re such a screw up! We’re through!”
Fortunately, Cat has never treated me that way. When Cat says, “Recalculating,” I hear, “No worries, Honey, you made a boo boo just now. Give me a couple of seconds and I’ll get us back on track.” Cat is my faithful GPS Angel. She never becomes impatient or abandons me as a lost cause, no matter how far I stray off the path. She keeps on loving me unconditionally while she recalculates for the umpteenth time, providing me a new path to my destination.
The Universe works the same way. No matter how many wrong turns I make, even if it takes me twice as long to get there as I had originally planned, the Universe continues to loyally guide me toward the Highest Good. There are no mistakes. Everything’s an opportunity. There are many paths to the same destination. The Journey is only further enriched by more opportunities to learn additional lessons along the way. Today’s missed turn is a perfect example: it wasn’t a mistake, it was the vehicle through which I’d get this insight to share with you.
You are Loved and Loving, Blessed and a Blessing. Namaste.
