Have you ever had a truly profound thought and said WOW to yourself? Like you never realised you were that deep a thinker? Then have you come across that same thought later in a book, on the radio or on TV? Plato, Aristotle and other great thinkers and philosophers have had these same thoughts centuries ago, they aren't unique but they are part of the cosmic mind, universal intelligence, ether that we all have access to. Ask the question and the answer is there, somewhere!
Here is something I wrote after reading a book in 2006, which is as true today as it was then.
I had a really profound though and think this hasn't been covered yet and just wanted to share it with you, only if you can handle having you mind stretched and your beliefs challenged! That though is this: Positive thinkers and motivational coaches tell you to focus on your goal, see it in your minds eye and you will get it, which is a good way to go about things. Whilst reading Healing Words by Dr. Larry Dossey p.68/69, I came across the following phrase "The mind is non-local in space and time" and the following experiment to back it up:
"Studies done at Princeton University's Engineering Laboratory (PEAR Lab) have indicated that subjects can influence the outcome of random physical events and can mentally convey complex information to other subjects from whom they are widely seperated, even by global distances. These studies show not only that a sender can mentally transmit detailed information to a receiver on the other side of the earth, but also that the receiver 'gets' the information up to three days BEFORE it is sent. These experiments demonstrate that the mind is non-local not only in space but in time as well." - Research Reference Margins of Reality
So following on from this I thought - Do things happen because we expect them, or did we 'expect' them because we subconsciously 'knew' they were going to happen? I know, it nearly blew me away and sent my brain into meltdown, I've not even got past these pages in the Healing Words book, it has so many great ideas and theories in the first few chapters. I'll let you ponder on it now cos i don't have the answer... yet... When you've finally let it settle in do you want to discuss this issue?
Maybe it describes what we call Coincidence, Serendipity, Chance, Fate, Deja Vu or Synchronicity (meaningful coincidences of seemingly highly improbable random events) - synchronicity -link 2
Conclusion: We attract into life everything we get - yes even the bad stuff. Stop expecting it to happen and slowly it will stop. Look and expect good things to come your way and eventually they will. you'll just have to trust me on this one.
Right Place, Right Time
Little seemingly meaningful (or meaningless) events or connections that happen everyday. There's been a lot more happening recently as I've now been looking out for them and paying attention, so let's see where they lead, if anywhere at all.
Is it possible to be in the wrong place at the wrong time!? There is only ever the right place and the right time for us to be. An event is just an event, we perceive it to be good or bad, yet it is the right place as it is where we're at. We do not need to know the reason, just that there is a purpose to the universe and that it conspires to help us get what we want and need. It is necessary for things to happen in a certain way and at a certain time. Sometimes we find out later why we met a person or something strange or different happened. At other times we are none the wiser.
Like dropping a stone in a pond, sometimes it may feel like only dropping a grain of sand in a vast universal ocean - just know that it will have ripples and move the shore line. So every little thing is important.
I have had a very interesting month with a couple of down weeks, during which I considered hiding away for a while, then still went to an XL Event with Dave Rogers last weekend in Manchester where strange coincidences started to happen. To ending up going to London and seeing Bob Proctor this weekend just gone. I took the action to follow up as many inexplicable connections as I could to see where my life would lead me. Hide away? Are you kidding, life is out there waiting to be lived!
Every little action has a knock on affect, are you awake and ready to see the opportunities in front of you?
I'll add the details of these two weekends over the next couple of days... I'm still processing them :-)
