It was April Fool’s Day and the Universe was having its way with me.  I was seated at my desk, when I was startled by a noise to my left.  It was my cat, the littlest of my cats, maybe a 5 pounder.  She was on the window screen, spread eagle, holding on by all four paws. The only problem, she was on the outside of the screen and it was a nice drop below her since she was two stories above the ground.

My heart pounding, I asked to no one in particular, since I was alone: what do I do?!  And the answer that came clearly was “do nothing”.  I did nothing.  I watched her let go one paw at a time.  At the point that she was dangling by one last paw, I knew then I had to turn away.  Turn away both literally and figuratively.  I had to look elsewhere so that I wouldn’t give myself to the unwanted conclusion, the worst case scenario.

I heard a thump.  I walked up to the screen and peered through it.  I don’t know how it happened.  There really should have been only one place for her to land and that was straight down.  A few feet to her side is a jutting out of the house, I have no idea how she swung over there but she did.  The physics, logistics of it make no sense.  There she stood looking up at me.  Next, I did do something – I removed the screen and pulled her in!

This was one of those love notes from the Field.  It presents itself as an unusual occurrence but hidden within it, is instruction.  Information, guidance or direction that is relevant to something going in our lives right now.  Sometimes these unusual occurrences take the form of a problem that we get lost in and then lose access to that guidance and information.  The Field is in constant conversation with us, met with non-resistance, so much can be revealed.

In the case of what happened here, I was waiting to hear whether I would be approved for something I was really, really wanting.  I wondered – should I do more, should I say more?  I also remembered in the past when I had been denied the very thing I was now waiting to hear, might this time I be approved.

The love note from the Field was, this thing you are wanting … do nothing.  But there’s more, the rest of that phrase is do nothing and everything will be done.  I think that is a Buddhist quote.  Yes, everything will be done with a certain provision, that I wasn’t giving myself to unwanted conclusions or worst case scenarios.  I took the guidance and rested in: do nothing *and* do not give myself to unwanted conclusions.  Then … everything will be done.  In good time, the approval did come.

The Field/Universe/God/Source/Spirit will bend over backwards to surprise and delight us in ways that beat all odds, even ways that seem to bend the laws of logistics.  It loves to show off for us.  And what it says to me most of all, is that we are never alone, even when we are “physically” alone, we are heard, we are answered.  All that remains is that we open the door and give right of way to an efficiency and a resourcefulness that is far greater than our own.
