Getting better at this lottery stuff.
They have little machines everywhere that scan your tickets and tell you if you are a lucky winner.
Yesterday, I was waiting for an elderly man to finish his –
HE WON! He was so excited.
I am considering this a good omen.
Started to think of some of the lucky things that have happened I never anticipated.
I was driving on an eight lane highway in a torrential rainstorm. It was almost impossible to see the road.
Suddenly, my car slid and it ended up facing four lanes of traffic coming at me.
As I heard the screeching of brakes, the thought came into my mind. Very calmly.
“Oh, this is going to be how you die.”
One car bumped my fender.
I was shaking as I got out of the car. About a 20 car pileup. Lots of damage.
The police were there. I approached one.
“This was a lucky miracle. No one is hurt. Probably because they were all going ten miles an hour. Are you OK? Do you want to file a report?”
I didn’t. He told me to get out of the way. Tow trucks were coming.
I turned my car around and went home.
WAS IT LUCK? DIVINE INTERVENTION?
Friends invited me to the Arlington Park Racetrack. I never go to racetracks. Know nothing about horses.
They gave out a racing form.
I went down the list and checked off horses I had never heard of. Then I bet two dollars on the first one to either win place or show.
The first one came in second.
So I bet another two dollars on the next.
I won every race. Went home with $340. From the same two dollars.
After several wins, old seasoned race guys came up to me –
“Hey, Red. Who have you got in the fifth?”
After that, I went to the track several times.
IT NEVER HAPPENED AGAIN
Maybe we don’t give luck enough credit. Put too much intention behind what we do.
Perhaps, we should just go blindly along, following our intuition, and throw stuff on the wall – GOOD AS WE CAN – with no great investment in whether it will work out or not.
Perhaps we put too much stress on the Universe and end up blocking our intentions.
Maybe we should just do our best – and let it go.
TRUSTING LUCK TO DO THE WORK.
MAYBE THAT’S HOW YOU WIN THE LOTTERY.
