In Tune With the Universe? Or Just Dumb Luck?

Earlier today, after arriving home from work, I was blog surfing and waiting for my midnight caffeine fest to wear off so I could sleep. My mind wandered to my gardener, Robert, and the fact that I have not been able to corral him in order to pay him for several months.

Robert is a Scotsman with white hair, ruddy cheeks, and a delightful brogue. For the mere pittance of $25 per month he keeps my little garden in pristine shape. Sometimes I know he has been by only because of the empty beer can sitting on my back porch.

I closed my eyes at my keyboard and said "Robert! Please manifest so that I can give you money." It wasn't 10 minutes later that the dog started barking, and was quickly followed by the sound of a hedge trimmer.

I hurried to the kitchen, wrote a check for $100, and went outside to catch him.

My question is this. Am I unusually tuned into the Universe today? Or was it plain old coincidence? I doubt it was my prayerful attentions to the great god Comp Uter. And I don't think my mad dash to the facility earned me cosmic brownie points. Maybe it is simple Right Intention.

It is kind of cool, every now and then to try that manifestation thing. But as I have not gassed up that old spiritual engine in a good long while, it was probably just luck and coincidence.

25$? Wow, that is a bargain.

I'm poor so all hedge trimming is done by me, but I might even be tempted to shell out 25-dollars.

Well Pat, as you can see by my blog title I'm not rich! I only pay for the gardening because my job is so darned unpredictable and the park rules are on the strict side. I like to think that once I retire I'll get to spend some time digging in the dirt before I am planted ;^)
