The little miracles in our life
So many times we have this teensy weensy bit of miracle that happened in our life, so tiny they are until we just brush it aside as, 'Oh, it's just a coincidence' or 'I am just lucky'. Sometimes we forgot that it's the Divine power, the Paramchaitanya, it's our beloved Mother, who sent these guardian angels to light our way.
Today it's a day full of tiny miracles.
I had taken half day leave to settle the car accident issues.
I left the office and came back to the house to pick up my mom in my dad's car since my car is not in a good condition. Since I can only collect the police report at 2pm, we went to have lunch.
We reached Section 8 area and found that there was no parking. I was surprise that the place is so full because I was there on Saturday to make the police report and it was so empty. Now thinking back, it was really a miracle that it was so clear on Saturday, and I could park my dented car so near to the police station and have no problem getting a parking space.
Anyway, we parked in a slightly more expensive parking lot and walked to the police station. I was warned that it could take hours just getting the police report but I was amazed that I was met by friendly police officers and clerks and I got my report within 15 minutes. Then since I was there, I went to pay the compound too and although there were a lot of people but I still managed to get it done in half an hour time. I feel everything was happening so fast and smooth.
Happy that I have finally received the police report, I went back home to get my dented car to the workshop. Again I was told that it would be a hassle to claim insurance for my car and it will take a long time, a lot of bureaucracy, red tape, you name it.
Although my car is dented in front, it was still drivable but there will be some noise and the brake was not so good. We reached home and jump into my dented car and drove slowly to the workshop. Surprisingly the road was amazingly clear. I reached the workshop within 15 minutes and usually the workshop's parking will be full but I saw one empty space right in front of the entrance. It was as if someone had it reserved for me.
Went into the workshop and met up with the friendly employee who deals with insurance claims. He was so nice and within minutes he got all the documents he needed and raised a case for me. I was there barely half an hour and it was done. He said my car will be as good as new until I won't even recognise it. I was so relieved to hear that and really praying that what he says will be true.
When we were done, I called my dad to pick us up but he was stuck somewhere in Sunway. So we decided to take a taxi back home. It was starting to drizzle and we were a bit worried because we didn't bring an umbrella. But barely 3 minutes walk, a taxi passed us and we stopped it and he was a nice taxi driver and took us straight to our house. The road was again clear as it was not yet peak hours and we reached home in 20 minutes time.
Feeling amazingly relieved that everything was settled in a smooth way, in my heart I thanked Shri Mataji for removing all the obstacles. But wait, there's more to come.
For the past 1 week, my aunty and uncle who have migrated to Australia decades ago came back to Malaysia to attend my cousin's wedding. They have been staying in my house. Before they came to Malaysia, they were on a Eastern Europe tour.
Since I have plan to go to Cabella, I was watching the exchange rate rather closely and I notice that for the past few days, the Euro have been coming down. Since last week, I wanted to go and change some Euros since the rate is good but always something or the other will happened and in the end I didn't manage to change any.
When I came back to the house, I told my mom that I would like to go and change some Euro today. Then when my aunty and uncle came back from their outing, they said they wanted to go and change some Aussie Dollars. I said great, let's go together. They asked what do I need, I said Euros. They said, great, we have some Euros left from the Eastern Europe tour and we can sell to you. And guess what, they sold to me at a lower rate, the rate that they bought and it was still lower than the current market rate.
Although it is not the full amount that I wanted to change, but it covers more than half of it. I was really thanking my guardian angels and Shri Mataji.
It's a day where everything falls into place. I won't say that I am lucky or it's just a coincidence. I would say that if we let our channels be clear and be connected to the Divine power above us, we are letting these miracles happen.
