Blessings in Disguise: Finding Shiva (and more)

When I was thinking about writing this essay I had planned to write and say that my personal experiment was only discovering how asanas can be a direct spiritual practice for me, but something occurred to me. By not being able to find the book I wanted (and so not have the experience I was sure I was going to have) I feel like Shiva stepped into the mix and destroyed my preconditioned sense of ego.  Inadvertently I had a Shiva experience without meaning to.
