"As you run the race of life, you are being followed by those who conspire to help you."
"...you are being followed by God's own in the unseen, those who love you."
Sometimes you think someone said your name - only to see no one.
Sometimes a butterfly - or bird - keeps flitting about you, following you, crossing back and forth around you. You wonder why that tiny creature, that collection of molecules and cells is attracted to you.
You wonder what it means.
In your “soul group” of loved ones, one of those loves is perhaps following you about, and their love and energy is so palpable, you hear your name.
You know what it's like -- how you put all your energy, prayers and strength into your child, that part of your heart that is walking around outside of you. You send them off to a day without you and spend the day “following them around” in your heart and mind.
Maybe one of your God-sent-loves is there as you see the butterfly or the bird. Maybe you hear your name - and no one seems to be there. Maybe you feel a sudden lightness of love.
No matter, you are being followed by God’s own in the unseen, those who love you.
