I’ve been noticing things in daily life that seem … coincidental, almost. Much like the concept of luck, I don’t think I actually believe something like coincidence exists. Actually, that’s probably not entirely true. I think most people understand the term to mean what equates as the first part of the terms’s definition, but kind of ignore the meaning of the last part.
Coincidence is defined as: a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection.
In my experience, people often focus on that first part. But things don’t just happen. Ever. Things do, however, often happen without our knowledge of the cause. So, within the context of a strict application of its full definition, I guess I do believe in coincidence.
Recently, a lot of seemingly unrelated things have been coinciding. Things like a chat with coworkers, a magazine article, and a tree in my front yard suddenly all point to the same thing at around the same time. I don’t usually read much into those kinds of happenings, beyond noticing. But, for some reason – lately – going beyond noticing the coincidence seems to be my default. And that’s really saying something because I read meaning into EVERYTHING. It’s something that will pass, for sure, but I think I’ll try to pull these things together and make something of them – perhaps for bloggering. That remains unseen (to you).
Deeper within me, I more strongly believe or suspect that my Self is showing my self something so that a greater integration can be made. Indeed, if this isn’t the value of all karmas, then I don’t know what is.
Aum Shri Mahaganeshaya Namaha
