Howdy! Would you consider yourself someone who pays attention? Are you picking up on the things that are happening all around you? Do you see patterns in events in your life or do you believe that there are coincidences and that nothing really follows any order??? :) What if everything did happen on purpose. How would you change your worldview (do you have a worldview)? What if there were no mistakes in the way we view mistakes, "things that just shouldn't fucking happen." What if you took that idea, that certain things shouldn't happen, and turned it around to ask, "why did this happen?" How would that change you? How would you see things differently?
When you stop denying reality you are faced with it. When you stop trying to not see you begin to SEE. You can then be a part of the grand orchestra in a way that you can't if you are choosing to believe that their isn't one because of your view being so narrow. When you look at this life as a part of the whole you can begin to see that each and every movement, no matter how insignificant seeming, plays a role in the sound that the universe is making. You are a part of this orchestra whether you can hear it or not… and everything that happens within you is a note that joins everyone else to make a melody and finally the Grandest of Symphonies.
The symphony is infinite. The reasons for things are multifaceted. The music is subtle until you open up to it. Paying attention to how things come together or, as it may be, fall apart, is important if you want to see a larger section of existence than your own. When you begin to embrace the purposefulness of life you begin to move towards the life that is your highest ideal. Life begins to work for you and support you in a way that is more obvious than ever before. From the big things to the small things. Everything from wishing you could buy a juicer on sale and then finding out 2 hours later that Macy's is having a sale on the very juicer you want at over 50%… then being pushed to get there that night, though you have had the busiest fucking day ever, with 10 minutes to spare before they closed, only to find out the sale was only for 1 day and you made it by 10 minutes... To being dumped by someone who you thought was the rest of your life and then finding the rest of your life because of it. Knowing that a series of events is actually a string. These events are connected and not random.
When you deny reality or decide it shouldn't be what it is you miss so much of the various movements of the symphony and things seem random and unfair. If I had decided that the sale was too good to be true, or ignored the internal urging to get to the store no matter what or assumed that Macy's closed at 9 like everywhere else instead of checking to see then finding out it closes at 10, I would have missed this opportunity. Or, if I had decided that buying a juicer was insignificant and not connected to anything, I would have missed the point. The point is encouragement. The point is support. The point is that the juicer awesomeness is an example of the kismet that is everywhere. Patterns exist so you can see the bigger picture. So you can see the connectedness to something more and to encourage you to be open to whatever may be on the horizon.
The universe is always encouraging or discouraging. Depends on what it is we are doing and how that lines up with our soul's plan. When something seems to come easy, that is encouragement. When it is like being struck by lightning, twice in the same spot, well that might be discouragement… and it is truly up to you to figure this out. No one else. When you choose to deny the very things the universe is giving you, showing you, bringing to you or taking away you are demonstrating an exercise in futility. You will have to deal with it until you can no longer ignore the music that you are not only a part of but you are playing.
If you are denying what is, how is that working for you? If you are accepting what is, how is that working for you? Either way it is what it is.
