Fortune Cookies and the Great Mystery

"Fortune Cookies" 

God is great! Yep. I said it. I am tired, oh so tired, of NOT saying it-of being lead to believe not saying it is ok when it isn't and for listening to naysayers disrespect my beliefs as they cast theirs of disbelief upon me (as if their 'opinion' is smarter or better than mine). Enough. 

THIS! I am not speaking about religion- I am talking about belief. They are two COMPLETELY SEPARATE THINGS. You get me? The Supreme Being and religion are two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT (and often of no relation) things. Let's put a pin in that one for another time.

For me, this is not simply an insignificant belief-God is everything-our very lives. The Lakota Nation uses the title Wakan Tanka translated as The Great Mystery! The Cherokee nation's word is Unetlanvhi, directly translated as The Creator. As anyone with half a brain can see, taste, feel, touch AND experience we are all connected (it's called science-think molecules). That connection is part of what makes us of "The One," The Grand Poobah, Source Energy, The Big Kahuna, The Force- whatever you want to call Infinite Divine Intelligence.

I mean, it isn't accidental that the galaxy is circular, that the globe is round and rotates or that the solar system revolves AROUND the sun. We talk about the circle of life, a circular path, running in circles and hang wreaths on our doors. Kind of indicative of never ending reverie, everlasting life, unchanging, immovable-you know- the Alpha and the Omega, no? I would say that the thinking stuff, the Undivided One (for this I'll call "it" GOD) loves a circle. A circle is never ending-connected forever! Abraham Hicks talks about the Vortex All. The. Time.

How does "luck" get more faith than The Creator? And why do people have such ease when they say "fate" but feel itchy and uncomfortable when we say "God?" Sometimes people feel even more than just itchy and go straight to violent-these are not my people.

"Fortune Cookie"

I have an example of how Divinity appears to me sometimes. Hang on! It's true! I have proof with photos!

Since I was small I have wanted to be an entrepreneur. I have owned a card company, began this blog, have a couple youtube channels and other little things. But this year I finally decided to take the jump and create a company for myself. I have an online boutique called CoolCrow and I have an Etsy site of the same name-both legit, too. I pay taxes and have a resale number and an Employee ID number and everything. But I am waiting. I am waiting to be successful and I am trying. so. freaking. hard.

Sooooooo-my husband and I went to our favorite Chinese restaurant. It's far from home and we love to go big. But Mr. A forgot to grab a couple of fortune cookies, so I ran to the bowl to get our due cookies. I put the cookies in the drink holder of the car for "later," and off we went. 

Once on the road toward home (about a 2 hour journey) it was desert time! I grabbed a cookie but something was tugging my mind (tugging my mind-not sure if that's the right way to express the feeling, but I assure you, you've had something similar-some people call "It" intuition) calling to me, or maybe whispering is a better term-it is like a breeze-"It's" there but not there. It told me to grab the other cookie instead. It coaxed me again and then again. All the while I kept opening the cookie I picked first even though "The Thing" was telling me to grab the other one! I ignored The Breeze instead of putting down the initial cookie in favor of the cookie that I was supposed to actually select first. Why would I ignore the Divine? I cracked into the cookie and the fortune read, "Pay attention to your intuition." MIND BLOWN I immediately grabbed the second cookie (which was supposed to be the first cookie) and on the fortune it says (hold on to your hat!), "Your perseverance will pay off soon." OH. MY. GOD. 

My talk with spirit is often (these days) about whether I have made a good choice in starting this business and wondering when it will be successful, how to make it successful and what my mission is. All the while, I am also diligently moonlighting as an art teacher at a high school and doing my regular job. And here was the answer, written right before me. You could explain it away and say coincidence, but I do not believe in coincidence or luck. I felt so comforted by this special celestial hug and what timing-right on the tails of my self doubt.

See the thing about The Force which I fail to remember sometimes (as in the case of the fortune cookie) is that while my faith (in The Creator and myself) is not always 100% the spirit world's faith in me is! Good things will happen and our lives can change for the better instantaneously!
