Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. ~W.H. Murray
The past two weeks have been highly serendipitous for me. Things have been happening that I can’t exactly explain.
For example, I made a decision about something in my life and then the above quote appeared to me 3 different times from 3 different sources. Totally freaky right? Also, answers have come to me from places I’ve never expected to get answers. One casual mention about a casual subject from a friend of mine has led to a whole series of spontaneous events that have been enlightening beyond belief for me.
I believe the Universe has a remarkable way of delivering the right people and the right circumstances at the right time. I believe when something crosses your path multiple times, there is no denying the cosmic force there. There is a message you need to receive. It’s as simple as that. But it only comes to you when you’re ready to receive it.
Like the above quote says, when you are hesitating on a decision or have mixed feelings about it, you are definitely not ready.
Some people might believe that life is just a random tangle of happenings. Maybe it is.
I prefer to believe in fate. Destiny. A grand plan. And I think I’ve become extremely good at trusting my intuition. At the end of the day, our intuition is the most important decision-making tool we have. It’s a feeling. A gut instinct. What is your heart telling you? What are the signs pointing to?
Sometimes it’s hard to know. But I’ll tell you what, when you keep your eyes and ears open and ready for signs, they come. And when you finally know. POW! You REALLY know. It’s a light bulb moment. Everything in your being is nodding a deep life-affirming yes. Yes. This is right. This FEELS right. Then everything around you becomes part of the flow of fate.
When it happens that way, it is truly awe-inspiring. It is beautiful, beautiful alchemy.
