Did you ever stop to wonder what makes life so seemingly chaotic sometimes? Perhaps you did, but did you also realise that perhaps the events that occur in your life aren’t so random. What might seem random to you; might be an ordered pattern of choices that have happened over a period of time, in other people’s realities, that suddenly coincide with your reality.
Ok, bear with me on this one. So what I’m saying is that nothing is random.
Imagine walking down the street one day, and you bump into that guy who you end up dating and even marrying. That chance encounter lead to a whole new life, a whole generation of things to come and happen, but was it random? You may well think so, but consider this hypothetical situation;
That day, you had been thinking all along about making some changes, and as a result, when you picked up that call from your best friend, you mentioned these new ideas. Your friend then starts chatting about it and how you should read a certain personal development book, because her friend had recommended it. As a result of tapping into this common interest topic, you talk for 10 minutes long than you normally would, causing you to miss your usual train home. So you end up taking the next train home. On the way you stop by the book store to buy that recommended book, and seeing as the bookstore is right next to the supermarket, you also decide to pick up some bread for the next day. With you bread in hand and the new book, you rush home excited to get reading, and that’s when you bump into that guy, literally, bread and book get flung onto the ground.
He sees the book you are reading and makes a comment, thereby starting the conversation and the rest is history!
Now consider also, this guy, he had been working hard all day too. In fact he’s been really hard at work for the past month to complete a project on time, and he managed to do it. As a result his boss let him have a half day at work and he decides to hit the gym in the afternoon, seeing as he hadn’t been for a while. Afterwards, he decides to head straight home to freshen up so that he can go out that evening to a new salsa class in town. He’s also thinking of making some changes in his life, and as a result, is making more decisions and committing to opening up to new experiences.
Hurriedly he gets ready and rushes out the house, when he bumps into you.
Is this random? She, purposefully chose to talk about the subject, leading to a book recommendation, and chose to go to the bookstore, and chose to buy bread also. All that changed the course of her events in that day. He, also chose to go to the gym after work, and rush back to get ready to go to salsa, a new experience he chose to participate in.
Both parties chose their course and it coincided through no randomness. If any one thing was not in place, this event would not have occurred. Had her friend not recommended a book, she wouldn’t have visited the bookstore, thereby getting her home a little earlier and missing that encounter.
We are all connected
So when you consider that everyone is purposeful in the things they do, though we are not aware of their reality and what is happening, there is always a reason for everything. Our consciousness connects us. Eastern philosophies have long spoken about enlightenment and being at one with yourself, other people and the planet.
Now these philosophies have come full circle as scientists in quantum physics have also come to the same conclusion. A series of experiments were done, and are continually being done right now, to determine whether human consciousness can affect the random nature of things, thereby making things not random.
Slot machines have random number generators in them, which are computerised chips theoretically generating completely random sequences of numbers. Quantum physicists wanted to see if the random nature of these numbers would change by thought alone. So they placed 37 machines generating random numbers, in locations all over the world, and set them up to upload all their data to a central reporting machine at Princeton University in the US.
They ran this experiment for 8 years and the evidence they found was conclusive and showed that though a single or even a group of individuals could not by thought alone alter the random pattern, when large scale global events occurred, there was a significant shift in the random nature of the numbers on all the machines. A shift significant enough to show that with enough people being focussed on one thing, it would alter the fabric of quantum randomness. What a mind mess!
What were these events. Well, they saw these spikes on global events such as the moments when Princess Diana died, OJ Simpson’s trial, the 9/11 attacks, and no doubt even more recently, Michael Jackson’s death.
As these points in time, so many people on this planet were clearly focussed on just one thing, that it actually affected the randomness of these supposedly random number machines.
How can this be? Underneath all the underlying chaos there is seemingly an ordered pattern to things.
How it happened is not something we’d understand probably, at least not without a PHd in quantum physics, or 30 years of studying Eastern philosophies.
What it does mean is that you should take your life and direction in your hands. Don’t leave things to fate, or chance. Even if you still believe in chance, and I’m not saying you shouldn’t, what I am suggesting is that you should at least encourage fate to play on your side, by taking firm decisive action in your life, to create your dreams. Step up and play a bigger game. Isn’t it about time you did?
