I interviewed SQuire Rushnell a few years back when his book : When God Winks-How the Power of Coincidence Guides Your Life. This is a bit of what SQuire says about God Winks:
*Youxc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2ve had another one of those days. Everything seems uncertain.*
*You think: Wouldnxc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2t it be great to wake up one morning and have everything be certain? **Certain in love? Certain about your job? Certain about your future?*
*Who could you talk to about this? Bigger question, whoxc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2d listen?*
*Tentatively your eyes drift skyward.*
*Hello? Are you there, God?
*Then your mind quickly assesses the immensity of your request. You want God to listen to you, right now. How ridiculous. There are six billion people on this planet. What if theyxc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2re all calling God at the same time?*
*You slump. Deeper into the dumps.*
*A little silly thing.*
*Someone you just thought about for the first time in years phones out of the blue--a silly little coincidence, so silly you shrug it off. Or a prayer you didnxc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2t really expect to be answered--was! Immediately, your left brain repeats something you once heard: Therexc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2s a mathematical explanation for everything.*
*xc3xa2xe2x82xacxc5x93Butxc3xa2xe2x82xacxc2xa6xc3xa2xe2x82xacxc2x9d you say, xc3xa2xe2x82xacxc5x93mayyyyybexc3xa2xe2x82xacxc2xa6itxc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2s not just coincidence or chance!xc3xa2xe2x82xacxc2x9d*
*Maybe God is communicating with you.*
*Yes directly to you!*
*You shake your head.*
*Naw. Couldnxc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2t be.*
*Butxc3xa2xe2x82xacxc2xa6what if God is communicating with you--in a nonverbal way--making a little miracle happen, right in front of you? After all, God doesnxc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2t speak to people in a human voice. Hexc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2s Godxc3xa2xe2x82xacxc2xa6Hexc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2d do something no one else could do, just to show you itxc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2s Him!*
*If so, that would mean that He is listening! Right?*
*He has heard you!*
*What if through this odd little coincidence, or answered prayer, Hexc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2s sending you--youxc3xa2xe2x82xacxc2xa6 out of all of those billions of people--a direct personal message of reassurance? To stop worrying? To keep the faith? That everything will be all right?*
*Every time you receive what some call a coincidence or an answered prayer, itxc3xa2xe2x82xacxe2x84xa2s a direct and personal message of reassurance from God to you--what I call a godwink.*
Let me now tell you about *Divine Ass Kicks(DAKs)- as I had (another) one today.
Those that listened to today's show(Wed. 30.April.08) know that I was talking about how we lack Love and deep communication, are plagued by war, financial problems, broken inner-city school systems etc,etc,etc, yet we are focused on three presidential contenders-one of which will most likely be the next president of these United States- yet they are possibly three of Americas worst choices. I wouldn't say that I was feeling badly for myself as much as I was feeling badly for us,U.S. --then came the DAK, the *divine ass kick*
As some of y'all know, I broadcast from a studio that faces a downtown street. I see passersby and some passersby see me-some look, some wave some make hand or finger gestures. Sometimes I'm looking out and sometimes not. I WAS looking out when I received the Divine Ass Kick. *En mitten drinnen*, as they say in French-Canadian, of my 'rant'
four people passed in front of my large window that faces Federal Plaza West. Four people, one 'escort' and three "special needs" folks, passed in front of my window-I IMMEDIATELY felt the divine foot on my touchas.
I took a break and ran to the 20 Federal Plaza hall to find my four next *guests*.
I invited the group in to the studio and had the DAK or BLESSING of meeting Stacey, 42yrs old, Stephan, 25yrs old and Derrick-who, btw, told me that he would NOT talk on air, yet took the microphone in hand and handled it like a pro-Derrick-30yrs old, oh, and their 'escort',Lynn.
I, well WE(listeners and me) learned that these were folk from The Touch The Moon Candy Saloon on Phelps Street next to City Hall. It is operated by Iron and String Life Enhancement Inc., which provides residential and respite services for mentally retarded and developmentally disabled children and adults.
Stacey42, Stephen25 and Derrick 30 cannot live on their own. We also learned that Lynn has a daughter in her 20s that has Down syndrome or trisomy 21.
I'm certain that the families of Stacey, Stephen and Derrick NEVER have their concerns regarding Stacey,Stephen and Derrick far from their conscienceness . The knowledge that their loved ones will ALWAYS need care must weigh on them always in all ways.
I haven't been able to get them off or out of my mind today either...and I guess that's a good thing, or at least the result of the Divine Ass Kick that I received today--not that I was sleeping, or needed a wake up call, but just to KEEP me awake and alert and conscious of The BIG Picture and the recognition that although there are plenty of problems and concerns to go around, some struggle with more than their share-MUCH more.......
