Odd co-incidences

Some call it, “God Winks” while others call it “cosmic choreography”; but regardless of the names we use to connote these mysterious co-incidences, most will admit that these are the best moments in life.

There is not a definitive term that has been coined specifically for events such as these, no one knows who or what is involved in allowing situations to naturally occur without the attempt of anything we have done ourselves. It happens to all of us, once we let go and agree to follow the path that has been made known to us. As W. H Murray (Scottish expeditions) explains, “The moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too”.

Thus, the only work that one does in these events, is commit oneself to the task at hand in “faith” or “fate” trusting some unknown voice that only we can hear that tells us to go ahead and do what seems unreasonable to others; yet it all makes sense to us. It isn’t easy though. Trusting something beyond ourselves is a far more complex decision than sticking with the logical world, where everything makes realistic sense. No one chooses to quit their job in pursuit of a hobby or a desire; yet that’s what Will Smith did in “Pursuit of Happiness” and that’s also what Jill Goldsmith did. She was a public defender who decided to quit her job and become a television writer for shows like Ally McBeal, Law and Order, and NYPD Blue. For both characters, both had to give up the comforts of what they knew and lived an uncomfortable life. As for Jill, she went for six months of unemployment, close to being broke, before she found herself in a “cosmic choreographic” situation. Hers happened at a chocolate factory. As she was waiting in line, a random stranger walked up behind her. The stranger agreed that Jill should go in front as they must have walked in at the same time. Jill thanked the stranger and explained that retrieving her chocolate even ten seconds earlier would make a huge difference in her happiness as she was very depressed. It turned out that who Jill was talking to was the writer and executive producer of the NYPD Blue series. The story unfold from there as the stranger wanted to hear about why she was depressed and she explained the part where she left her lawyer job in hopes of becoming a writer.

Life is truly interesting and fascinating to say the least. Life is a story that is yet to be told, but first we have to live out this awe-inspiring story so that we can tell it and re-tell it, as it is our personal story. When we allow the still small voice to direct us, the stories plots and climaxes become more interesting. Unfortunately, for this story to be this Hollywood motion picture, we have to stay in the dark until the movie is made.  In the end though, all the roads of our lives merge to form a superhighway, where everything makes sense, where all that we have learned along the way finds a place.
