My Clear Sign Of Destiny

In August 2017, I had the first scare of my life. I thought that I am going to leave this world with the symptom of a stroke. In December 2018, I was given an all clear on the status. On 29 December 2018 (morning), I had a sharp pain in my heart. The pain subsided after application of the medical oil on the affected area. I subsequently went to the nearby clinic for a detailed check-up just in case. The doctor (attending to me) mentioned that there was nothing wrong with me based on his assessment. He was of view that I go to the hospital for a more detailed check-up. He could refer me to the specialist clinic of the hospital. I informed him that it is better to put things on hold. In my mind, I will be going to the polyclinic to get a referral in order to get a subsidised specialist rate. I am a Singapore citizen and it is natural for me to get the benefits as a Singapore citizen.

The above circumstances give me a more detailed sign. I have to live life on my own term and condition. It is not worthwhile to do things of my dislike such as the full-time employment. There is a tell-tale sign in respect of the Bus No: 302 (Serial No 5981) which is a double-deck bus sending me on the way home. I have this thought in my mind. If it was a double-deck bus which sent me home at the bus interchange, I will quit my full-time employment. Indeed, it was the double-decked bus which picked me up at the bus interchange and sent me home on the day of 29 December 2018. The sign was very clear indeed. On the same day, I also went to pray to the temple of “Guanyu 關羽” the God of War” , in Teck Whye, on the same day. In my mind, I wanted to get the divination lots from the God. However, I did not do so. I believe that the bus sign is indeed a tell-tale sign from the God of War on choosing my desired and preferred path to freedom. It has been a day on 29 December 2018 which re-affirmed my strong desire to follow my dream and wish. This is my life and I choose my life on my own term and condition.

  1. Congratulations on selecting your date. I myself am in the mental state to choose the “right” date to tender my resignation to the rat race. Your ideas and thought process seems to align with mine all the way across our planet in Toronto, Canada. it is a small world. Thank you for sharing your thought!


    1. Hi Stan. Appreciate your inputs. I believe that you are the type of person who prefer the same type of the lifestyle i.e living on your own terms and condition. We are all in the same planet and it’s just the matter of the involved distance between you and me. It’s great to know you from thousands of miles away of having the aligned ideas and thought as me. I hope that you find the “right” date to make the long-planned/awaited decision. I wish you all the best in your endeavor. Keep in touch.
