Smooth Falling

By Jason Nelson

Sometimes life just flows so perfectly there is no question that the traveled path is the correct one. Let me explain …

Last night, I was on my way to a group meditation-type event. I was feeling a little nervous about sitting with a group of people I had never before met - and also about experiencing something foreign to me. Meditation is not unfamiliar, but this particular facilitator, I had never previously met.

Anyway, before I left, I had to run a quick errand and then on my way to the freeway, I had an impulse to stop at a local mini-market that I rarely shop at, to buy a snack or some mints. Truly, it was one of those, “Oh I want to stop there! Quick!” turns to get into the parking lot.

I ran inside, carefully calculating my time, glanced over the snack rack, and realized my neighbor was standing at the register; this was the same neighbor I ran into a week ago at a different store, so I was going to make a joke about “how we should stop meeting like this.”

Just as I approached him though, I heard him say, “What? Oh man! I don’t have enough!?”

Without hesitation, I asked him how much he needed.

“Ten cents,” he said.

I dug in my purse and gave him the needed dime. Now, mind you, I stepped up at exactly the moment that he needed that money.

Later, I noticed I was being tailgated due to driving the speed limit while searching for the building that the event was being held at. I looked ahead of me for a place to pull over to let the tailgater pass, and just as I did, found I had pulled over right in front of the building I was looking for.

Some things fall so easily into place. And some things … well, they do not. But that’s a subject for another blog post.

  1. synchronicity - I feel when this happens it is meant to be or you are following the right path.


  2. I LOVE when we are guided in just each exact moment like this!
