Some of us who have a belief in a a guiding essence like to hold a belief in coincidences and synchronicities. I agree that through these the divine communicates with us, shows us the path and direction, and that everything is on track. They are like signposts along the way.
However, the confusion starts when we begin to place our own interpretation on these coincidences and try and derive our own meaning from them. When we start to invest our egos, wanting to find a particular meaning, we can get led astray. Although even being led astray is perfect too, as from this you then learn not to be led astray next time. My point is, when something happens that causes us to stop and think and admire the beauty of the universe, rather than madly trying to work out the meaning, just detach.
It is helpful to not make assumptions – as processes unravel, meaning unfolds. Outcomes in mind, and fixed ideas of what we think will happen (no matter what place this comes from) cause distress. They only keep us living in expectation and pull us out of the moment. Truth always shows itself if you remain open to whatever being the perfect, divine outcome for you. But allow your ‘knowing’ to relax, allow your need to know to let go, stay curious and stay open. The lesson will be gentler and quicker. Resistance to the truth causes the suffering. Be open to anything, no matter how scary it feels. Within the fear is your freedom. Hold on to that.
