How Your Life Gives You All You’re Wanting Demonstrated By A Bike Ride

In most things you’re wanting, the way you’re going to get it is through people.

Sometimes that includes simple things like delightful, seemingly random (they aren’t random) meetings telling you you’re on your path.

Two days ago, after a wonderful meditation, Perry felt the urge to ride his bike along the lake where he and his wife are vacationing. He thought such a ride, about 20 miles round-trip, would be a nice experience.

But the tires on his bike had deflated a bit on the way to the lake.

Perry didn’t bring a pump. Instead of being disappointed about it, he saw it as a merry adventure: how was he going to inflate his tires? He was eager for the answer.

He looked around for a bike pump but found none. He did find a compressor though, with a tire-inflation tube attached, but the valve wasn’t the kind that would fit his bike.

A valve fitting meant for standard valves. Not the kind of valves on Perry’s bike.

That’s when he thought of those conversion valves which allow a pump to work on any kind of bike tube valve stem. Any bike shop carried these items, he knew, so he decided to ride his bike further into town to buy a couple.

The tires still had enough air in them to make the trip.

The way from the house to the lake trail is single-track, like a mountain bike trail. It’s rocky and bumpy and winds between trees and bushes, up hills and down. Perry enjoyed that part of the ride.

About two miles into the entire 22-mile ride, Perry got his first indication this ride was going to be interesting:

He realized he forgot the keys to his bike lock.

Now most people would think this is something that happens all the time. And it does. Your “higher self” your “inner being” “god”, “the Universe” whatever name you give it, is always communicating with you. The trick is, how open are you to receiving the messages?

Perry is open.

So instead of reacting in frustration or annoyance at forgetting his keys, he merrily turned around and headed back to the lake house. Doubling back, he saw something that looked like a black snake in the middle of the trail. As he approached it, the snake turned out to be his bicycle chain lock.

Perry had left the bike’s tool bag open. Riding over the open trail caused the lock to fly out of the bag.

That was Perry’s second realization.

Now an interesting thing to note. Everything happens on purpose. So when All That Is (that’s the nomenclature we prefer) orchestrates an event like losing or forgetting your keys, there is a reason. As this story unfolds, you’re going to understand why.

So bear with us. The story gets much better.

(Right now as Perry writes this, he is reveling in the realization we have just alluded to. Since he knows the entire story, he already has made the connection. Before writing the paragraph above, he didn’t have this realization. You will get the point of this whole story at the end.)

Perry’s ride back to his house set up the series of events that would not have happened had the ride back to the house not happened. And this is the case with everything happening in your life. Even when you lose something.

So Perry rode back to the house, got his keys, made sure the zipper on his tool bag was secure, then headed back towards the lake trail.

Along the trail he crossed paths with other bikers, all of whom smiled, waved or otherwise said hi to Perry. When you’re in the presence and aware of your Inner Being, your Inner Being matches you with people who are also in that state in the moment you are. So each of these micro-rendezvous were also indicators.

Having had these indicators and being aware of their receiving, Perry was prepared consciously, for the Big Event.

He followed the curve of the lake shore and came upon a white cargo van towing a trailer of equipment. It was parked parallel along the trail and the side closest to the trail was open. Inside the van was a man not much older than Perry, playing an upright piano.

It was the strangest thing to Perry and it stuck out of his environment like a sore thumb.

Who keeps a piano in their work van?

The van was packed with cleaning equipment boxes, insulation and cleaning tools. But there was just enough room for the piano, a stool and the guy playing it. Perry rode past the van but then realized this meant something.

So he turned around.

They guy was playing 80s hits, Perry’s favorites in his 20s. After a resounding rendition of a tune from that era, the man turned around to see he had an audience.

What happened next was remarkable. They guy, Jeff, said hi then asked Perry for a song to play. He rambunctiously played it to Perry’s delight. Then, for what seemed like an hour Jeff and Perry talked about Southern California (where they both from) music (which they both love) the 80s, business and more. Jeff was restarting his very successful mobile detail business here in Idaho. He had just moved here from California where he had been tremendously successful detailing planes, boats and cars of “the very rich”.

The connection was so natural and easy for both Perry and Jeff. Like they were old friends.

Jeff said he was taking his lunch break, decided to do so at that spot, because he figured he would be able to do some marketing. His van has big signs on either side.

It was obvious to Perry that Jeff was naturally in tune with his Inner Being. Very successful in business, married to a very successful wife, Jeff had been living his life on his terms for all his life. Perry could tell Jeff was happy. And his life reflected that.

But wait, there’s more.

While enjoying a chat old buds would have, an obviously affluent, older woman pulled up. She asked Jeff for his card, then told him she had a number of expensive boats she needed help with right away.

After several minutes, Jeff gave her his card, turned and flashed Perry a gigantic smile. Perry felt the satisfaction of his own life, reflected in that smile. Obviously Jeff and Perry were sharing a special moment.

The woman left and Perry and Jeff both high-fived each other, excited about this real demonstration that life is lived best in a state of grace, a state of expectation that life is supposed to work out, always.

After the woman left, Jeff said something Perry will never forget.

Perry is in the process of growing four different companies, a couple of which are highly ambitious. So Jeff’s words were perfect. They were exactly what Perry was looking for.

“The best way to grow a company is organically,” Jeff said. “I’ve got [companies] contacting me online asking $600 a month to do marketing for me. But what I’ve found is best is letting it grow organically.”

We couldn’t agree more.

The rest of Perry’s ride was equally monumental, with epiphanies and rendezvous which made the ride, enjoyable, yes, but also deeply meaningful.

And, had he not lost his keys, he would not have taken twice the time to reach the spot where Jeff and he met. That’s the kind of orchestration a human being can’t possibly manipulate into existence. And, everything you’re wanting –– no matter how big or small –– is being orchestrated by All That Is, your Inner Being and the Universe, what we refer to as your personalized trinity in exactly this way.

Every life moment can be this way for every one. No exceptions.

Perry more often than not exists in a state of perpetual strong connection to his personalized trinity after many years of practice, through multiple disciplines. So he is constantly realizing events in which people or animals or events coordinate just so to punctuate his good feelings with real-life demonstrations such as this one. Thus, he lives in a real, conscious state of invulnerability, knowing he and he alone creates his reality.

It wasn’t always that way for Perry. But that’s another story.

There is no end to how better life can get. Discovering you create your own reality and as such can live any life you choose is intoxicating. And, there is no ceiling to how good your life can get either.

Everything is possible.

Maybe you don’t believe that. If you allow it, your life will change that.

In future posts, we’ll be sharing more of Perry’s life experiences. We hope you enjoyed this one as much as we and Perry enjoyed sharing it with you.

Your life is a series of rendezvous with people and events bringing everything you are wanting. You came into the world to be happy.

There’s no better time to be happy than now.
