Is it just me or do things always turn out better when you just go with the flow? I never really took that saying to mean more than just a cliche; an easily passed along snippet people tend to say when they’d really rather remind you to “calm down” or “stop doing what you’re doing.” Lately I feel like I’m seeing how important it is to really let the universe take hold and drive. The less I try to make things happen or follow whatever plan I seem to be attached to in my mind, the more things are happening on their own–more so than I could have imagined.
There’s some kind of power out there at work. The other day I re-connected with an old friend from college and we went on an East Bay adventure to Berkeley’s Brazil Cafe then to the Contra Costa Crystal Fair. I keep mentioning this trip to everyone I see lately because it’s just too good not to bring up over and over. I mean, how stereotypically Bay Area can you get? I wonder if I should have taken my shoes off immediately upon entering the Easy Bay-bound Bart. I love the Bay Area exactly for that reason: I literally cross about ten different micro countries manifesting as neighborhoods and cities along my journey across the Bay. I suppose this kind of diversity finds a contender in New York and its surrounding boroughs, but there’s something unique about the Bay’s special flavor palette.
At the Crystal Fair in Walnut Creek my friend and I perused the wears until we both stopped at a special table advertising bio-luminescent spirulina smoothie mix and a selection of crystals. I think we were drawn to the pair manning the table–a colorful woman embedded in a sea of green-blue tye dye sheer pantsuit handling what looked like a mini light-saber hovering over her throat, and her husband, adorned with numerous necklaces and what appeared to be a matching kufi and embroidered vest. We chatted a bit and the woman divulged that the light ray wand was a UV way machine that emanates light waves known to heal ailments and straighten out telomeres that constrict due to stress. We soon learned our newfound friends were fellow Banana Slugs who loved Santa Cruz so much during school that they never left. I told the light ray lady about my newfound career freedom, she paused and held up her hand so as to sense wind or some kind of energy, and she quickly assured me “I feel good about that.”
Her husband invited me and my friend to a teleconference that happens once per month to educate people about the benefits of bioluminescent spirulina and extended an invitation for us to visit them if we ever make a trip to Santa Cruz. A session with the UV light ray wand was $25 for 10 minutes, so I passed in case I wanted to use my cash to have a picture taken of my aura. I would venture to guess my aura is purple, the most magical color for auras, but I’m not sure since I didn’t end up getting the photo. Our new friends’ banner denoting their organization detailed their membership to the Cosmic Council of Light. I didn’t know there was such a thing as the 5th dimension but apparently the Cosmic Council of Light is a real entity intent on helping people get there.
