Sole Searching

"Soul has infinite resources with which to bless mankind, and happiness would be more readily attained and would be more secure in our keeping, if sought in Soul." Mary Baker Eddy
I walk at least 40 miles a week. Because of all that walking, my boots wear out quite quickly. One pair I got from a reputable company fell apart within 3 months. Fortunately, I still had the receipt and my money was refunded. I didn't tell the shop manager how much walking I had done with them though as he probably wouldn't have been so understanding. Years ago, I bought a pair from that same company which lasted me several years, and I did a lot of walking with them. I reckon boots manufacturers should get me to test out their boots and see if they are really strong or just for show.

When another of my walking boots fell apart, my mother offered to order some that she'd seen in a catalogue which looked strong. Although I liked them, I didn't want her to order them just in case they didn't fit properly and I had to go through the rigmarole of returning them. She suggested I looked in the shops and see if I found any I liked and she would treat me.

I thought I'd go to another "reputable" store. At least I know that with them, they'll refund my money if there's anything wrong, as long as I have the receipt. The shop I had in mind didn't have any boots in my size.

I then put out the intention for Light/Source to find me suitable boots.

As I was walking home, I had an idea to check out a particular area that had shoe shops. Although those shops are not on the route I usually walk, I could easily make a detour. I couldn't be bothered. I decided I would go to another shopping centre the next day where I would be able to find my boots. I thought that I might even link up with a friend who lives in that area. While I was busy day-dreaming, I noticed my feet had taken over. I found myself walking in the direction of the area I had thought of earlier. So I stopped day-dreaming and let my sole do the searching. Ha!

I finally found myself in front of this shoe shop that I've often wondered about but I've never been in. It was still open. I entered and had a look round. The boots I was drawn to were very trendy and fashionable but they didn't look practical. The shop assistant, who had been watching me, asked me what I was looking for. I told him I needed sturdy walking boots. The boots he recommended looked almost identical to the ones my mother was going to order for me. They were not only stylish but sturdy too. Perfect!

On the wall, behind the shop's counter, I noticed a flyer with the words "Inner Soul." I asked the assistant what it meant and he said they were advertising a night club in the area and recommended that I check it out sometime. He even gave me a promotional "Inner Soul" CD for free.

I believe my Soul, who knows what is right in every situation, led me to that shop where I not only found my boots, I was given an Inner Soul CD.

I trust these boots to take me the full distance.
