I have discovered a theme in my life lately: beauty
. This theme has likely always been there, though I am only beginning to fully realize its importance in my life. Perhaps my love of beauty is related to all the Libra energy I have in my astrological chart...so I was told upon having my natal chart read. My understanding is that the astrological sign of Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, beauty and social grace.
I continue to be awe inspired by the beauty
of BC. Last night I went to visit my friend who is a Park Steward at the Comox Valley Spit, and I got there just in time to view the breathtaking sunset that nature gracefully shared with us.
I am hoping to be in nature's beauty lots this summer, and having purchased my very own tent today I am happily on my way. Having lived in a tent for six and a half months last year (in other people's tents) I have been itching for some tent time, especially now with the warmer weather. To me, sleeping in a tent fosters a close and intimate relationship with nature that is truly special. I had been periodically checking various local internet sites for a couple months, and it seems few people sell used tents here. I was feeling a bit frustrated. Then when I was in Victoria this past weekend I popped into Mountain Equipment Coop and came so close to purchasing a tent, though it just didn't feel right. Upon my return to the valley I rechecked the local online classified ads, and low and behold there was a sweet little 2-man tent for sale in the area. What is more sweet is that it is the exact same tent that I lived in while in Ecuador last year. Same make and model - the one difference is the outside color. What are the odds?!
And what are the odds of putting an ad online offering a ride to Victoria last week, and unknown to us both, the woman who I ended up taking lived next door to my friends who I was staying with? How was that for ease?!
Well I can tell you I am beginning to see the perfection in nature and the universe. Believe it or not, we can actually influence our "odds" by using focused intention and strengthening our belief in being able to affect an outcome.

Of course there are many factors that affect an outcome, though the more I witness the serendipity in my life in big and small ways, the more I believe in the perfection of the universe. As these experiences continue to pile, I am learning to have faith that everything will work out for the best, and this faith is helping to create a beautiful feeling of peace within. What a wonderful gift.
