Is this a two by clue?

The big question of the day for me: Does recieving the same occult book again when you are positive that you ordered something else constitute a hint that despite one's time crunch that one should really be working with it?

Yes, I recieved a duplicate book yesterday in the mail. I believe that it is simply a messed up order, but one always like to be sure about these things.

The universe I live in starts off with subtle hints, and then works its way up to two by clues (a phrase stolen from a friend).

When I ordered a copy of this book the first time, I looked at it and said "I do not have time to properly work though this at this time." I am looking at the second copy with the same feeling.

Now I do plan on working with it...but I am not sure if I should give it a higher priority number or not.

For the record, I do feel that I am guided. Some of my earliest magics as an occultists was book finding magic. But I am not sure in this instance.

In this case, it may not be my luck, just a bad shipping center. I did have to complain about my order not shipping once already.

(For the record, I am not going to name the publisher, the book, or the shipping center. I used to run a business; I know how easily mistakes happen.)

Oddly, a colleague gave me a book the other day that she'd been given by her friend, who'd found it on top of a trash can. Since it's in English, and my colleague doesn't read English that well, she gave it to me.It's on a subject that I wouldn't pay any attention to if I saw it on the shelf in a bookstore: Zuni Indian fetishes. But finding an English book on the street in Budapest is such an extremely rare occurrence, it caught my attention. I asked myself: "Is this a power trying to aid me, or something trying to distract me." I decided to read it, and find it interesting, but it's just so far from my usual reading topics. Maybe that's good for me.

Personally, I find it very useful to read things outside of my normal reading patterns. You never know when you are going to find gold in abandoned books (either brought used or dumpster dived).

Don't you mean a Clue by Four?

Yes, I did. But I wrote the wrong term, posted it, and did not realize it until the next day. And no one mentioned the mistake until you strolled though...I am not sure why.

Hee hee! Well, a two by clue is as good as a clue by four...or is it only half the value? I'll leave you to figure out that one! What is it with me and the word/math problems this week?
