Coincidence

You must have heard this: Everything happens for a reason. We accept this. But, sometimes we cannot know or find out the reasons behind a course of incidents. We do not even understand the correlation between the incidents. ‘Cause these are the things beyond our intelligence.

Things seem to happen coincidentally. But, those are actually connected. Carl Jung called this ‘the Principle of Synchronicity’, an acausal connecting principle. According to Dr. Deepak Chopra, when we start encountering more and more meaningful coincidences in our lives we are moving towards enlightenment (Synchrodestiny).

To quote Dr. Wayne Dyer, when two angles coincide they make a perfect triangle. Hence, the so called coincidences are actually designed to bring perfection in our lives. We just need to notice them as such and not ignore or shun them as being accidental.

If we start noticing them, we will see the proof of our prayers being granted, our visualizations manifesting, our dreams accomplishing. Faith will then replace worry. Observation will replace thinking. Patience will replace desperation. Joy will replace struggling.

Let us spend more time this weekend in finding meaningful connections in seemingly separate events. Let the Supreme Intelligence take charge.

Achieve Happily, Not Happiness.

You have everything you need for complete peace and total happiness right now. – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer.

I know. I know. This is hard to digest. But, then what is peace and happiness all about? Doesn’t that mean acknowledgement? Doesn’t that need acceptance?

I do not intend to say that we should not have dreams, desires, goals. We can very well be, as Ben Sweetland puts it: ‘Happily Discontent‘. We may choose to be happy and grateful for whatever we have right now and then act to enhance the joy or even to share the joy. Fulfilment of our dreams and desires can just be the sources or means of expansion of these feelings. “Achieving happily and not happiness.”

The secret key to success in any area of our lives is ‘Joy’. If you take off from this feeling, you will land in the same feeling. If you take off from a feeling of unhappiness, neediness, or desperation, you will land in those feelings. There are no crossroads. But there are tunnels for us to transform at any moment in between the journey and thus redirect landing.

Even if we have started off from a place of need, we can transform the feeling to enthusiasm or exuberance. We can convert the nature of our goal from ambition to expression. Is this why people say, ‘Happy Landing’ when we take a flight? I guess so! Let this Monday be the foundation stone in building not just the week ahead, but the new year soon arriving. God is equally excited!

Character and Self Esteem

Your reputation is in the hands of others. That’s what reputation is. You can’t control that. The only thing you can control is your character.- Dr. Wayne W. Dyer.

Reputation nurtures pride. Whereas, building, maintaining and refining our character nurtures our self esteem. Self esteem is true strength. We can build self esteem by being watchful about our thoughts, speech and action. When there is consistency between all the three there is authenticity. We should refrain from speaking what we do not intend to do. Speech devoid of intent is a sure way to diminish self esteem. When we intend something, say something else and do something entirely different we create a chaos in our own minds.

Maintaining and refining of character is done by allowing our conscience to rule us. Our reputation should not drive us. Let reputation come as an obvious outcome of a life lived with inner strength. Have a building weekend. God literally serves us when we are authentic.

Love, Joy, Peace
