A LOVING UNIVERSE
MOON RISING OVER THE MOUNTAIN
There have been several incidences over the past couple of weeks and two stand out particularly for their Divine synchronicities.
The first is the story of my eyeglasses. Over the past year I’d done two cataract surgeries and just before leaving home I was able to finally get a pair of eyeglasses for my new prescriptions Knowing I was coming to India and things are so much cheaper here, I chose to get one pair of bifocals to see me through until I could have eyeglasses made up here…separate pairs for distance (driving) and reading.
Didn’t really know where to go and a couple of opticians were suggested (I didn’t need a optometrist since my prescription was completely up to date)..just needed to choose frames and have the lenses prepared. As I got off the rickshaw (the one with 12 people in it!!)
THEY WERE SQUATTING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FLOOR AND EVERYONE WAS LAUGHING SO MUCH…THEY THEMSELVES ASKED ME TO TAKE A PHOTO
at the market, someone tapped me on the shoulder, never pleasant in a crowded area in India…but finally from behind, an American accented voice said “Hello, how are you?”. It was a person I know here for years, but never really speak to except to say “hi” when we happen to cross paths. He asked what I was doing in the market and told him I needed eyeglasses…asked if I had some special place to go to and when I told him no, he said there is a great place he has been using since 1991 and proceeded to take me there.
THESE WERE THE FRAMES LEFT TO CHOOSE FROM AFTER I ELIMINATED THOSE I DEFINITELY DIDN’T LIKE. THERE WERE ABOUT 40 PAIR TO START WITH AND THEY KEPT BRINGING OUT MORE UNTIL I SAID “STOP”. LIKE GOING TO A SARI OR SUIT SHOP
Brought me to the place and instantly turned around and left, without even giving me a chance to thank up, but not before making sure the optometrist was there to receive me.
As soon as I walked in, I felt transported out of India and into an optician’s shop anywhere in the world….upstairs for an examination, even though I explained I didn’t need it as I had my updated prescription with me, but went anyway. Was given a thorough examination and then the prescription was checked and to my surprised, one eye was no longer good. Needed a slight adjustment, which was done, the new prescription handed to me and then downstairs to choose two frames,
Long story short, as I always have trouble finding suitable lenses as my face is very narrow, I usually need childrens’ size and then not much to choose from, here, there was an unlimited array of lenses to choose from, ALL of which fit me.
NARROWING IT DOWN
And then, hearing the prices, I finally decided to buy more than two. In the end, I chose two for distance, two for reading and one further pair of bifocals. And today went back and ordered another for distance with a frame I had chosen for reading which I particularly like. And, think I will go back and get sunglasses as well.
ALL FIVE INITIAL PAIR COST ABOUT $80…ALL TOGETHER!!!! FRAMES AND LENSES!
Second story, also ending with beautiful synchronicity, (well, not quite finished as I don’t know the final result yet as I write this), concerns my brand new laptop with a touch screen.
One morning a couple of days ago I woke up to find the touch screen unresponsive…simply not working! I only have this device 4 months! It is under warranty, but I would have to wait until I get home to use it since I don’t have the receipt etc. here with me. And no way of knowing if it could be fixed, if I’d have to backup everything and set up the laptop again after it being formatted, etc.
I was sitting with a friend who runs the cyber café just below my room, who is also planning to buy a similar Dell laptop like mine, and mentioned to him that the screen had suddenly stopped working. A friend of his was sitting there and he said something to him in Hindi and then to me…”This guy works at the official Dell showroom here in town! Bring it down and let him see it! So I did…and when I opened it, and he began to touch it, it was working perfectly!! Magic…go to the doctor and you are no longer sick kind of thin…we all laughed, I was relieved, and went happily up to my room, and to my great dismay, when I plugged it in and began working, it once again didn’t respond. And then I realized, it had to do with the charger. Just two days before my phone charger (also only 6 months old) completely stopped working and now I began to put two and two together, but took everything downstairs again to ask. The Dell guy, as soon as I told him the story, understood that the problem was with the charger, not the screen. Another guy sitting there said two nights before in several hours of erratic electrical current, two large screen TVs and two air conditioners were burnt out. So, number one, I was lucky that my phone and laptop were not destroyed, and pleased to know that , hopefully, the solution was a simple one.
Today, the owner of the Dell place came over here from town, checked out my laptop, said it seems fine and it is only the charger, and hopefully tomorrow will bring me a new one.
It’s been an amazing few days with blessings from an abundant and loving Universe showering down on me all the time….I truly never have to worry as I am always being taken care of, in ways I certainly could never imagine, with the appropriate angels, in human form, always showing up for me when I most need them.
I AM TRULY BLESSED
