n life there are absolutely no coincidences. Everything is happening exactly as it should be, precisely according to plan. Quite often when we look around, it doesn’t appear this way. But when we start to understand the way life works and how we’re made up, we begin to see that everything is happening exactly the way God has planned it, and that we also played a part in that plan.
Who you are, where you were born, who your mother is, who your father is, your husband, your wife, your career, every aspect of your life is happening exactly as it should be at this moment. When it changes, that’s the way it should be at that moment. What determines all these factors in our lives is the way we see ourselves, and the way we feel about ourselves and the world. Our consciousness actually determines our whole life situation. At the same time this is going on with everyone else. Their consciousness is determining their whole life situation. So just the right people and just the right events come into our lives. We also come into just the right people’s lives in just the right situations to give them the experiences they need. This is all based on who we are and who they are.

Thanks for the post, totally agree Craig.
However, paraphrasing some quote, let inspiration catch you writting.
There is a “plan” and we don’t control it…but we CAN give it our best shot to be in the best shape for when that chance comes along…instead of your sitting back and thinking “well, it will eventually come along”.
My thoughts only 🙂
Have an AWESOME day
Thank you I am glad you agree. However I must let you know that this is not just some quote. This is something my teacher told me all the time. In addition to this it helped to shape my understanding of the world. His students and my students asked for and waited for years for me to give my thoughts on it along with others, So years ago I expounded on it in my second book. It came to me this morning during meditation to share this with those who may need to hear it, read it on the blog. So I shared it instead of something else I had wrote.
I do agree the idea is not to just sit back, but realize where you are is where you are meant to be for the moment. Get the lesson and embrace it, move on it and make it the best you possibly can as you move onto the next place in your journey.
If we’re open to it, rather than shutting it down.
When facing a problem, I find it helpful to rely on the old Quaker saying, “Way will open.” I sense it’s another facet of “nothing just happens.”
And that brings up another part of this, “active waiting.” And that puts us back in your marvelous phrase, “the meditative zone.”
Keep up the invitation to all to join in.
Thank you so much my friend.I have never heard that old Quaker saying but it sounds like a good one. I like the “active waiting” also. A very good two word description to explain a deeply spiritual process. And doing this does put us back in the zone. Thank you and I certainly will keep up the invitation. That is a very good point. Peace and Blessings
