Master ZenWise Saved My Backside!
James Grant, Analyst Developer
I was in a contract, seemingly doing very well. Everyone seemed to value what I did, and I was getting excellent feedback from directors of the companies we worked with. So I thought – hey, why not move to a flat? I looked up many flats, and one appeared that had special significance for me. It was where I was first introduced to the dharma. “Great, a sign!” I thought. The agents weren’t sure about me renting the flat, due to the short term rolling nature of my contract. I negotiated with the agency to allow me to rent with such a contract, and I also managed to negotiate a yearlong contract extension with my work. “Great”, I thought. “Seems like everything is green to go”.
One of the great things was that the flat was not joined to any neighbours! (It was above a passageway to a small car park.) I thought it was significant, but not sure if it was a good or a bad thing – it looked to me like ‘a house over a river’. I asked Master ZenWise about it. He took a look at the details about the flat, and said (something along the lines of) “I’ll save your ass. There is no foundation to this flat. It will be nothing but trouble.”
His advice is hardly ever easy, but he has always been on the money in the past. So, despite the effort I had put in to arrange contract extensions and negotiate with the letting agents, (with gritted teeth, and a bit of internal grumbling) I withdrew my interest from the flat.
A month or two later, my contract was terminated unexpectedly – with no warning or explanation. Everyone who I worked with was puzzled, and I was confused. However, I was very glad that I followed Master ZenWise’s advice; otherwise I’d be pouring money into a flat while frantically searching for a job.
So… Master ZenWise saved my backside!
He is currently giving me some Feng Shui advice, to alter some environmental factors that are affecting my prosperity. I can assure you that the advice is troublesome to follow, but there already seems to be a change in the ‘feel’ of my environment. I will report back as progress is made.
