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.

Nature teaches

“Water does not resist. Water flows.
Water always goes where it wants to go. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember, you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.” – Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

If you can’t go through….I liked this! Neither resisting nor fighting with a problem can help us solve it. A water-like patience can wear the problem away.

The true power of water is in its flexibility, its softness. We can go through water and we also love its touch. Water nurtures. Water caresses. Water cleans. Water also heals.

Water is not hard, it’s not stubborn. It is persevering. If we try to stop it, it will first try to percolate through. If it can’t, it will change its course and move on. If it can’t, it will corrode the obstructing material. If it can’t, it will break through. Water moves silently or melodiously. It roars only when it has gathered strength to break through.

This is how nature teaches us. Let us unfold some more lessons. Nature is the path to God.

Godlike Patience

Why is patience so important?
Because it makes us pay attention. – Paulo Coelho.

Insightful!

All of us have heard that patience is a bitter plant, but it has a sweet fruit. We have heard and we say…keep patience..have patience. But, patience does not mean mere waiting.

Patience is an opportunity to focus. Patience means knowing the purpose of waiting. Patience means a healthy attitude towards circumstances.

With this understanding patience doesn’t remain bitter; it becomes curiosity, hope, enthusiasm…it becomes a sweet fruit in itself. It allows us to enjoy the journey. We can shift our attention from the reward and keep it on the process.

In this way, patience doesn’t merely bring sweeter results for us. It brings a wonderful byproduct than the end result. It makes our being more beautiful. Without patience, spiritual growth is an illusion. With patience, it becomes a certainty.

Let us demonstrate Godlike patience to discover the precious gifts of life.
