It’s a funny thing traffic lights. I’ve observed that when I’m waiting to cross the road, sometimes the lights change very quickly and sometimes they seem to take forever. What’s going on there?
Hold that thought!
The other day I came out of the supermarket with two heavy bags of shopping. I intended to cross over the road to catch my bus home. As I was waiting for the lights to change, I noticed my bus turning round the corner. Oh no, hold that bus!
Then I thought to myself: “There’s only One here!”
This means the same Intelligence moving that bus is the same Intelligence controlling the traffic light, the way I move, and controlling everything. When the lights changed I had all the time in the world to walk across the road to the bus stop where the bus was already waiting for passengers to get on board.
On another bus journey, I noticed my next bus was waiting at the bus stop but I wasn’t sure whether it was still waiting or about to move off. I had a feeling the drivers were changing shifts. I decided to stay on the bus and catch the one behind two stops down at the bus station.
At the next stop, the driver waited at the stop for a few minutes. It was taking so long that I almost fretted that the one behind would overtake us, but I stood firm in what I knew to be true.
“There’s only One here!”
In other words, the One Intelligence in me is the same Intelligence driving the bus I’m in, driving the one behind, and in all passengers. I have all the time in the world to catch my next bus.
When the bus finally moved off, I had all the time in the world to arrive at the local bus station, get off the bus, sit and wait for my next bus, which arrived a minute or so later.
Back to my original question about why traffic lights seem to take ages to change or change quickly, the lights are simply synchronising with my intention at the time. I always find when I’m being delayed, there’s always a very good reason.
When you realise there is only ONE Intelligence operating in all, there’s no need to worry about a thing. You relax and know you’ve got all the time in the world.
There’s only One here!
