This is not really an inspirational story but here goes!

Recently, something strange happened to me.  For a period of one week, I kept having these huge mosquitoes showing up in the en-suite bathroom in my bedroom.  I am very allergic to mosquito bites so I did not like seeing these mosquitoes.  I don’t know where they came from.  It is only 10 degrees Celsius (50 F) outside so I shouldn’t be expecting mosquitoes anymore!  What was even more interesting is that they always fly around the ceiling of the bathroom, where I cannot reach it.   So, for three times in a row, I threw a pack of facial wipes after them which resulted in their immediate demise.   I am not proud to write this but I guess my Ego was in fear mode and it was thinking, look little guy, it is either you surviving or me being bitten by you!

After the 3 mosquitoes have come and gone, I found a huge spider on the ceiling of my bathroom.  The spider is HUGE, including legs, this thing was around 5 cm in diameter (2 inches).  Since I have never been bitten by a spider, I decided not to do anything about the spider.  For a period of a few days, it even crawled very close to my bed at one point before returning to the bathroom ceiling.  I saw that it made multiple attempts to make a web without much success and now it is just “staking out” on the ceiling.

It has been there for 4 days now and not a single prey had fallen into the web.  I began to understand that perhaps I had interfered with the process of nature.  Had I let the 3 mosquitoes live, then, the spider would have had something to catch and eat.  Ironically, the corpse of one of the mosquitoes that was hit by my perfect aim is situated within 5 cm (2 inches) of the spider’s legs.

So…now I feel really bad.  I’m going to have to pay for this Karma.  Ok God / Universe, I was wrong, I see it now.  Maybe the Universe is telling me I have four guides…
