On The Nature of Coincidence and Destiny

We’ve all heard the phrase “There is no such thing as coincidence.”  And for many of us, we can think of many points in our lives where – in retrospect – we can see this truth play out.  I sat down a while back and contemplated this phrase on a pretty deep level.  It made me consider the nature of how we accept our choices, and consequently the resulting actions.  What came to my awareness was quite profound – the twists and turns which my contemplation led me in.  I would like to share it with you. 

There first thing that came to mind thinking about this was:

If there is no such thing as coincidence … then how could there be anything other than RIGHT ACTION? 

That is, if there is no such thing as coincidence and all Time is simultaneous, why do we second-guess ourselves and the choices we make?  With coincidence being hypothetically mythical, everything we say and do somehow is meant to have been said or done.   This means we are always engaged in RIGHT ACTION.  Though the results of such actions may not always be positive, when we realize the past does not equal the future (as Time is all wrapped up) and failure is simply an outcome at one single point in Time and Space (when we break it out in a linear fashion), we are shown that in both instances – simultaneous Time and linear Time – we are still given to RIGHT ACTION regardless of the consequences (as odd as that may sound).

We run ourselves on the hamster wheel of second-guessing because we want to make sure our choices have the best possible outcome through Time and Space – Is the choice fully life affirming?  Positive?  In second-guessing, we are – in a sense – not trusting all the aspects of what we are doing and what could happen; one is trying to anticipate potential failures based off the decision (and had it ingrained at some point in life that such failures could be horrendously disastrous – which is 99.9% pure myth). 

This constant necessity of second-guessing, of trying to anticipate potential failures, is a wrongful place to work from in the mind.  As this angle of perception becomes habit, it ingrains within one’s consciousness a very real construct of “my decisions could become major failures.”  Every choice then (or close to every choice) becomes like a man walking upon a tightrope – hoping his decisions will keep him balanced and not landing in the safety net before crashing to the floor. 

That’s the beauty of the safety net.  The tightrope walker can still get back up on the rope and try again.  It’s only in his own mind that he would perceive himself a failure if he were to fall.  We have this safety net, too, it is called TRYING AGAIN.  If you’re failure hasn’t killed you, then you’re safe to try again.  And if you have paid close enough attention, you learned something from the event which will guide you to correct yourself the next time – a piece of knowledge you needed to gain for which the falling down event was the only way to gain it … proving once again, there is no such thing as coincidence, and that falling down was actually the CORRECT RIGHT ANSWER to making it to the successful act of completion.

Trust that every action you make is the RIGHT ACTION for the RIGHT TIME and PLACE you are in.  If the result turns out to be less than satisfactory, then you were meant to learn the lesson inherent within the result, as a way of assisting you in realizing your goal when it does come to fruition.  When success does rain upon you, you will also see why it happened at that time and place, and why it was meant to happen at that time and not the former.  Remember, as the saying goes, there is no such thing as coincidence. 

Which means there is always RIGHT ACTION.

In understanding that you are always taking right action, this does not mean you still cannot pause to consider consequences.  What it means is that when you do make a decision and act, instead of worrying about how the action will unfold as you are doing it, put that aside and accept fully that the action – whether the result be good or bad – was the exact right and appropriate action for the time and place which you are doing it.  Trust it fully.  Re-evaluate later the outcomes, then go from there. 

Even if your action is a failure and has some consequences for others, one must trust that those consequences were the right and perfect consequences for the people experiencing them, to propel them on their journeys.  Again, if the outcome is positive – it was meant to be and its effects were meant to be for all who are experiencing them.  Likewise, if the effects were ultimately negative, then accept that the results were meant to be that way, and how others react to them was also a part of that equation.  Since there is no such thing as coincidence, we must accept that reality in regard to others and their reactions.  This is not always easy for us to comprehend or accept.  But as we are all connected – that is a scientific fact – we must realize that the outcomes we experience from other people we were meant to experience in our realities, on some level.  We may not understand it, but it is not by coincidence we are entered into and wrapped up with those experiences.

When you perform an action, instead of second-guessing, once you’ve made the decision to act, then ACT.  And as you are doing the action, tell yourself “I am doing the correct and right action for this Time and Place right now.  At this moment, my actions are the correct and right actions to be taking.”  For in truth, since there is no such thing as coincidence, your actions – whether positive or negative in ultimate outcome – were meant to be taken.  You are multidimensional.  Your actions are multidimensional.  Your thinking which led to the decision and the possibility chosen in which you act upon is a multidimensional process.

All of it was meant to occur, in the manner at which it occurred. 

There is no such thing as coincidence. 

To second-guess one’s self once a choice has been made does not change the unfolding of reality as it was meant to be, based off the choice taken and the corresponding actions given. 

This realization is a part of accepting your god-hood.

This does not mean you do not have free will.  It means that once an action is taken, that action is the CHOICE made by multidimensional consciousness for the unfolding of certain events in an exact and specific order with non-coincidental outcomes – events which the conscious analytical left-brain may not have all the answers to.  And that’s fine.  A follow-up action can also be made as a course correction to the original decision, creating a new set of no-coincidence unfoldment.
How to Minimize Negative Outcomes
This is really simple:  Base your actions from a standpoint of love and compassion.  If you are making your decisions through the lens of compassion and love, that energy gets entangled with the choice; it carries out in your actions.  If the final outcome is not the complete realization of the goal, the energy of love and compassion mixed in with the original action will lessen the impact.  And you can always move forward knowing that the action you are taking, because you are coming from a loving and compassionate approach, is indeed “the right action for this moment, in this Time and this Place.”  Especially in those moments where you feel you might be lacking certain information which could help make a more informed choice.

The additional benefit of this is when you look back on what you have done.  We all love to do that – to look back and be critical.  If you base your actions on love and compassion, you cannot be too hard on yourself; the decision was made based on what was known at the time, directed by love and compassion.  In this way, you can be more forgiving of yourself, versus condemning.  “Yes, things did not turn out right, but at least I approached it with love and compassion.”

By “love and compassion” I mean the love and compassion for all, not just one’s self.  When making a decision, yes, we must surely consider ourselves and the impact upon our personal lives, but many decisions we struggle with often involve other people.  When we approach from love and compassion for all – self and others – this is the crème de la crème.  In some cases, we must choose ourselves over others, but this is usually an exception and not the rule, as one comes to realize the interconnections and inter-related dimensions we all share throughout our experiences.
