A Simple Tale

Brief update: Happy to report my laptop is back home after a harrowing four days at Best Buy’s Geek Squad. All sorts of confusion and ridiculousness ensued and I am hoping at least some of it can be attributed to the Uranus station yesterday. I like Windows 10 and it is simpler in design than Window’s 8. I cannot get Cortana to talk to me, but maybe she isn’t one of my guides 🙂

Two days ago I had a quick tale to tell. Now I have a simple tale about miracles and perspective. I am sharing this not only to inspire you , but to remind myself that all is well, somehow…

I had the notion that the deadline to install Windows 10 for free on my laptop was fast approaching. I am not certain  I want the upgrade because of the privacy issues associated with the new operating system. Still, I wanted to learn more about it. My laptop may be incompatible with Windows 10 because of its age. So I did some research and was left more baffled than before. I decided to call the Geek Squad that is affiliated with the store where I purchased my PC. I was connected to a man with a strong southern drawl. His name was …… DEXTER.

Dexter was not able to answer my questions to my satisfaction and the remote viewing process disabled my security software. This freaked me out so I was leery of continuing further. However, I asked him if his name was Dexter and he answered in the affirmative. I wanted to be certain I had heard him correctly.

In my 55 years of living on Earth, I believe this is the first time I spoke to a human named Dexter. The fact that this happened 4 days after the anniversary of his passing was not lost on me. I sense that this urgent need to learn about the windows upgrade was communicated to me. I cannot be certain of this, but I was considering checking out cats tomorrow at the animal shelter. I do not know if this is a sign I should proceed, or more likely confirmation of my intense focus on my Dexter.

After this encounter, I watched the film Miracles From Heaven. It is about a young girl who undergoes a transformation that tests the faith of her family. I like Jennifer Garner and am attracted to these types of stories. I was quickly drawn into the story because the protagonist has a mysterious digestive disorder requiring numerous tests and hospital visits. If I had known this beforehand, I may have not watched the film. Her stomach becomes quite bloated and she is in constant excruciating pain. She endures an endoscopy and meets with several GI specialists. This was hitting too close to home.

Then the song Collide begins to play and my heart bursts wide open. That song is my jam. This song links me to my mystical encounter that happened eleven years ago on July 21st 2005. Today is July 16th, hmmmm.

The song was used to illustrate a strong connection between this ordinary, traditional church-going  family and the power of Source. I was quite tickled by this because Collide was written as a romantic love song. I intuited it to be about a higher love and it appears that the producers did so as well.

I will not give the story away because this film is relatively new. What I will say is that interwoven into the main storyline are several subtle miracles in action. I noticed a few of them immediately, but later on they are highlighted to convey the significance of faith.

I came away from today feeling mixed emotions. I am experiencing the extreme sadness and anguish that often accompanies pain, suffering, and powerlessness. At the same time, I am also warmed by the electric vitality of bold synchronicities that cannot be explained away.

I still am undecided about getting Windows 10 and adopting a new cat. But I feel less disconnected and more enchanted. Jennifer Garner’s character quotes Einstein at a pivotal point in the plot:

There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.

Which way do you choose?

    You know I had a new PC recently it came with widows 10, and I navigated ok from Vista.. I don’t like the apps that pop up though or the way it downloads automatically updates without asking.. and I am sure every PC is now being spied upon by big brother..

  2. I thought about you when I had 5 beautiful, hand raised kitties that needed a home, and if you were here, I am sure I could have coerced you into taking one. They were adorable. Two males, that were dark grey and white, and three really cute females, one akin to the boys and the other 2 calico’s. Alas you were far, but I did think several times, I wish Linda could have one of my babies. They have all gone off to be adopted, with a rescue, but they were sweet, playful, and loving. ❤

      1. Baby steps are purrrfect, The right kitty will come to you at the right time. I got Spinxy, my outdoor stray caught and fixed, so no more kitties. Gosh I loved my babies, I miss them but I am also a bit relieved.

        ❤ ❤ ❤

  3. No decision needs to be made. Just sit with your feelings. Allow yourself to grieve knowing Dexter loves you and is watching over you. Windows 10 is okay. I have it. No problems. I think it is like Windows 7 and way better than 8. The change won’t be that disruptive if you make it. Love to you, Linda. ❤

  4. Oh, wow , a ton of synchronicities again. That is awesome.
    I can relate to the fact that feelings pf sadness and pain can coexist together with the wonder and amazement about all the miracles.

      1. I’ve now put Collide on one of my playlists. I also just installed Windows 10, and it seems to work well so far. My laptop’s nearly 4 years old so I was skeptical, but it’s running.

    1. Hi Barbara,

      I raise the question because we are not always on the same page at the same time. Darkness is still evident. You did not miss the post where I briefly mentioned my job. I work as a therapist at a community mental health outpatient center. I do individual and group therapy and assessments. It is an interesting journey filled with highs and lows, pluses and minuses, fulfillment and boredom. However, I am glad to be helping others and having more money to make my life more comfortable and allow more freedom of movement.

      xx Linda
