I love coincidences. I experience many of them in my everyday life, and as I use Cosmic Ordering, I create my own coincidences as I go along as well! A couple of coincidences I have experienced, and that I am writing about here, may not be the greatest events in the turning of the world, but I take all coincidences I come across as a sign that I am in the right place at the right time. There is no way to logically explain that coincidences happen randomly. If that was the case, I wouldn’t experience the number of coincidences that I do, compared to the number of other random events that happen, that are not coincidental. If that makes sense.
I’ve had it put to me that coincidences are a fact that happens, with no spiritual intervention, and because they happen they have been given a name. I didn’t understand what was meant by that statement either, I just interpreted it that the person who said it just saw that coincidences are just two similar events that happen – and they think nothing further of it. I have to see them differently due to the amount of them that I experience. If they occurred once in a blue moon I’d probably agree, but I can experience 3, 4, 5 or even more coincidences in a day.
I have a journal, and when I feel like it, I write a page or two about whatever comes to mind. I don’t use it very much nowadays, but it is beside my bed, just in case I want to use it again. I use this blog now, and that pretty much does the same job, but sometimes I just need to write with a pen! Anyway, last year I decided that I wanted to add something to my journal. I always write the date at the top of the page before I write anything else, just in case I need it at a future time. It comes in handy. So, I wrote 06/01/09 at the top of the page. It was on the right-hand page of the book, and the page on the left was full with my last entry. I glanced at the date on this page. It was 06/01/08. I hadn’t wrote in the journal for a full year. Now, like I have said, I don’t use the journal all of the time. I certainly don’t remember the last time I have written in it (unless it was yesterday, but sometimes than I need to check – just in case!) What made me want to write in the journal on that day? I obviously knew it had been a while, but didn’t think it had been a year. And for the day and month to be the same from last time to this, well, is a great coincidence.
Another example is of when I was in work. I was on an evening shift, and part of the job involved calling customers to welcome them to the company and explain how the company worked. We were given a list of names and numbers to call before the end of the day. We also had to take incoming calls to help the customers if they had any questions. One night, I answered an incoming call from a new customer who had such a question. I noticed that he hadn’t yet received his courtesy call, so after I answered his question, I asked if I could go through the call with him. He was happy with this, so I took his number and called him back. The number he was calling from was different to the one we had for him on the computer system. I went through the call details, made sure he was happy, and that was that. I moved on to the next person on my list, and dialled the number. When the person answered, I introduced myself, and asked to speak to the person on the list. Unfortunately, he was driving, and was unable to take the call. Nothing unusual so far. Well, apart from the person who had ruddy answered the call. He was only the guy I had just spoken to on the incoming call and called back on the different mobile number! He recognised my voice straight away, but he couldn’t believe that he was with his colleague who this call was intended for… and he himself was further down on my list. He told me the number we have for him on the system is the correct number, but it was out of order. The number I’d called him on previously was a temporary number, and I had now called him on the number we had on the system for his friend. He said he was going to put an extra line on the Lottery after that experience. I just advised him that I’m quite used to these things happening, but we both had a laugh on the second call. Even though I’m used to coincidences, they still take me by surprise!
I’ve found a couple of coincidence stories on the web, that I’ll finish today’s post with:
In Beatrice, Nebraska, on March 1, 1950, all church choir members scheduled to appear for group practice arrived late. Each member’s various reasons for being tardy were unrelated. But it was a lucky escape. At 7:20 the church was destroyed by a gas explosion. (Web)
In 1930s Detroit, a man named Joseph Figlock was to become an amazing figure in a young (and, apparently, incredibly careless) mother’s life. As Figlock was walking down the street, the mother’s baby fell from a high window onto Figlock. The baby’s fall was broken and Figlock and the baby were unharmed. A year later, the selfsame baby fell from the selfsame window, again falling onto Mr. Figlock as he was passing beneath. Once again, both of them survived the event. (Web)
If the density of the universe one second after the Big Bang had been greater by one part in a thousand billion, the universe would have recollapsed after ten years. On the other hand, if the density of the universe at that time had been less by the same amount, the universe would have been essentially empty when it was about ten years old. (As told by Stephen Hawking)
I had to end with a universal coincidence. After all… is it a coincidence that we are actually here to experience the wonder of everything that is around us? Think about it…
