How are you all doing? I hope you are learning something new everyday from life. I, for my part, get my lessons when I least expect them.
Just now, I was browsing the TV channels and came across a movie that I like. So, I decided to watch it for some time before getting back to my work.
The story is about a wife who forgets her identity (i.e who she really was) as she is busy taking care of her family before one of her friends reminds her of the person she used to be in college. So while trying to motivate her to be her old self again and to start dreaming again, the friend tells her a very powerful line:
“Your dream is your signature!!”
I went numb hearing those words. All of a sudden I could see all the possibilities my one dream could have for me and for the world around me. I kept thinking about the line again and again and every time I thought about it, I felt a shiver in my body. It was such a deep thought. The line had the power to change the destiny of anybody who believed in it. I felt so powerful!
I had tears in my eyes. I went numb and my mind just took a different route and started dreaming. I went into a zone of dreaming and then came back just in time to hear the second line which again blew my mind:
“I am 36 years old.”
Why does that matter to me? Well no points for guessing! I am 36 at the moment. So what was this? A message for me? A sign?
I have seen this movie many times before but I never felt like this before. You know why? It is because back then, I was not sure what my dream was. I had no idea about what I wanted to do with my life. I was struggling to know what I wanted to do, what I wanted to be. But in the last few days I somehow knew what I wanted to do with my life and now I got this message. It further confirmed my thoughts that I was on the right path.
Such experiences are called “Moments of Grace” according to Neale Donald Walsch in his book “When God Steps in, Miracles Happen” which happens to be a book that I am currently reading (a third coincidence!).
So let me now connect the dots here – I read a book on miracles which says that we all experience “Moments of Grace” in our lives when our questions (the questions will mostly be the ones that are most important to us at those particular moments of our lives) are answered through our experiences, through people, through books etc. (in my case it was a line from a movie).
I have no words to write about this anymore. I am blabbering while trying to connect everything and understand the huge moment I just had.
Has this ever happened to you? Do let me know your experiences and what do you feel about such experiences.
