Is Serendipity Just A Pretty Word?
Every person, all the events of your life are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you.
– Richard Bach
There are times in our lives that things just fall into place.We end up meeting the person we’ll spend the rest of our lives with or chatting with a stranger who turns out to be your future boss or maybe even meet a friend who you haven’t seen in years but bump into in the middle of Spain (this actually happened to me!). Our lives are filled with wondrous stories of amazing coincidences. Stories that delight us even ten, fifteen years later. Stories that we will always remember and repeat with great joy.
But what do you call it? Chance, happy accident, luck or destiny?Do you believe that all things happen for a reason and the reason will show itself when the time is right? Or maybe you’re all about coincidences – there’s no divine plan, if it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen! Maybe you’re a Murphy’s Law hardliner!
Well according to Ayurvedic wisdom, there is no such thing as “random”!It holds the belief that there is an organizing principle in the universe.This means that even though things might seem to be arbitrary – there is a plan in play! There are no accidents and there are no coincidences. Everything happens for a reason. We meet the people we meet for a reason. We can only come to appreciate this bigger picture when we are aware of this.
Your task for today is figure out which of these do you believe in?Chance, luck or destiny.If you chose the Ayurvedic path of an organized universe, think of your closest friend. Meditate on how they have influenced you and you them. What have you learnt from this person? What have you chosen not to!
We’re at our halfway mark and you should be going through some amazing changes in your body and your mind. This is just the beginning!
