The thread of our life is woven into a tapestry which connects each of us. So when you come across a “sign” to follow that thread, it is worth the side trip to see where it leads. You can obtain unique messages and information as you travel the momentary detour on your chartered path. It could be as simple as opening a book.

It can be as “ordinary” as the piece of paper I found within the pages of Russell Targ’s memoir, Do you see What I See. I only noticed it after I had finished reading the book about his involvement in the remote viewing program that was funded by the US government for more than 25 years. The paper was a receipt with the name of a woman who had read the book exactly one year ago. Since I do not believe in coincidences, I googled her name and found her obituary. I was amazed to discover that she had passed at the age of 91, two months after she had taken the book out from the library which was located about 90 minutes from where I live ( I obtained it from my library as an inter-library loan). In the newspaper text on-line, it also named members of her family, which included her niece who lived in the same town as her recently deceased aunt.

This is where most people would return to their daily routine. Over the years, I have found that if you take the extra step forward, this is when life gets very interesting. So I found the niece’s phone number and called her the next evening. She answered the phone with, “Grand Central Station”, thinking that I was a telemarketer because of the unknown telephone number on her display, so I knew right then that this would be a unique conversation. For the next 45 minutes, she very generously reminisced about a woman, who lived in the present moment, with no judgment and a daily desire to explore and be curious about what simply showed up. This is why, a couple of months before her passing, reading and learning about remote viewing was a natural activity for her in a life well lived.

It was a timely conversation for me as I often question whether I am following the right path. This amazing woman’s message to both myself and her niece was to simply “trust” and show up for every moment of your existence in this human experience.

The next book being “intuitively suggested” to me is The Heart of the Internet by Jacques F. Vallée. How interesting then, that this fascinating woman’s niece just happens to be a recently retired information systems engineer.

Coincidence…..I think not.
