“The ultimate test comes when you try living from your new purpose.”
–True Purpose: 12 Strategies for Discovering the Difference You Are Meant to Make by Tim Kelley
Enjoy the sheer delight of randomness, but a mindful and intentional randomness that somehow reinforces the process of owning your greatness as you work to live your purpose! Falling into the digital rabbit hole today, connecting with the wisdom of old friends, still trying to make all the digital media connections. Following my friend’s instructions (below), I came up with the quote (above).
Instructions from my friend Elke Siller Macartney from InspirationU (http://www.inspirationu.com)
“Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence AS YOUR STATUS. Then POST these instructions in a comment on your status.
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST book.”
We find meaning in the random uncovering of what is there waiting for us. Following the above instructions, a kind of bibliomancy–divination by means of a book, esp. [but not in this case] the Bible, opened at random to some verse or passage, which is then interpreted.” [from dictionary.com]— I have happened upon something that is meaningful. But is it meaningful because the book was the nearest one? Yet consider that the reader found meaning in the 5th sentence on a particular random page. Such coming up with something meaningful speaks of larger purposes and synchronicities and synergies where we all find meanings greater than the sum of the parts through random walks through the nearest book. Bravo to bibliomancy!
