Ticklish Time

Time is an illusion. Timing is an art.

~ Stefan Emunds

   Way back in 1985 I took a trip with a friend up to San Francisco from Santa Barbara. We left early on a Saturday morning and whizzed up there with no traffic, arriving a little over five hours later. We travelled home Sunday evening through traffic, leaving San Francisco around 6 p.m., expecting to arrive back in Santa Barbara around  11:00 or 11:30 p.m. 

   However, when I pulled into my friends driveway to drop her off at her house, it was just a few minutes after 8:00 p.m. Somewhere time had stopped. Our dinner receipt in San Francisco proved what time we left San Francisco, and my gas receipt in Santa Barbara after I dropped by friend off, legitimizes we were in Santa Barbara before 8:30 p.m. It was a miracle…and in traffic, taking the same route there and back.

   Pondering this while traversing the Malibu Mountains toward the Valley for my weekly computer lesson years later, I was hoping for a similar miracle as I was running late. 

   Instead of leaving at 8:50 a.m. to get to my computer lesson by 10:00 a.m. I left at 9:18 a.m.  I was almost to the bottom of  the mountain by 9:48 a.m. and felt positive, but was stopped by a construction worker near Old Topanga. They had closed the only road heading my direction, so I had to turn all the way around, go back up the mountain and over to a different highway, which was going to add another 45-50 minutes at least if I was lucky. Everyone was rerouted and traffic was horrendous, so I started laughing, and remained focused on getting there on time. 

   When I pulled up to the computer building, it was 9:55 a.m. I walked up to the counter and it was 9:57 a.m. I even beat the techy guy there and my lesson started right on time.  

   I can verify this with my neighbor who saw me leave, my puppy, who kept me from leaving on time, the roads department and my computer technician.

   This universe is really orchestrated by vibration. What you vibrate you get, even if it breaks all the laws of physics.
