Do you believe in coincidences? Is everything that happens part of some divinely orchestrated plan, or do we shape and mold our own destiny? Why do things happen when they do and why do we see meaning in it all? Ever ask yourself “why now”? I have.
I believe in cause and effect. I believe that things tend to unfold best when they are allowed to unfold naturally. By that I mean gradually and at their own pace. Push something too fast or too hard and it’s more likely to go awry. And being an impatient person I’m always tempted to push really hard for what I want. But I also believe that we are co-creators with Spirit and that we have the power to create the lives we want. That we are constantly in a state of creating whether we know it or not. I believe that I have been the dominant force in creating my life.
We have to be the right person at the right time for things to manifest in the way that we desire. For them to manifest in a certain way. The totality of the person I am is important. All that I am contributes to the process. Things are going to manifest according to our being. The trick is to be consciously involved in the process.
So, how does all of this tie in to the question “why now”? There are some wonderful events unfolding in my life right now. An old love from twenty-five years ago came back into my life earlier this year and that relationship has been a true joy and a wonder. But I don’t think this would have happened if we hadn’t lived the lives we had lived and experienced the things we had during the intervening years. They prepared us for this relationship. And when the time was right it manifested. Now that it has it continues to evolve and unfold naturally, without forcing things.
I believe that things happen for a reason. That reason being that we call them into being ourselves according to the law of cause and effect. If we don’t do it intentionally then we’ll be victims of the law of unintended consequences. One way or another we are manifesting our earthly lives through our spiritual lives. If our spirit is out of order we attract all sorts of things into our lives. This is the nature of magic.
Why now? Because we were finally ready for each other. We were finally ready for this relationship. Because the things we were doing separately all of these years were preparing us for this moment. It’s no guarantee that things will work out ideally, but it is a promise that whatever the future holds, our lives have prepared us for this moment.
Why now? Because everything is exactly as it is meant to be. Everything we have thought, felt, and done has added up to this time in our lives. Because when we were ready so was the time. When the individual is ready, that special time or event will appear. The trick is to learn to trust the process.
