Coincidence: (n) a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent cause
I’ve never actually tallied the number.
I think it would be fairly interesting to go through the entire dictionary and meter the words provided, based upon whether they offer a positive result for humanity or usher in a negative one.
Some words would be obvious:
Peace would go in one category and war in another.
Joy would have its own space and sadness would hobble to the corner to be alone.
But there are certain words that would be more difficult to categorize:
Coincidence comes from the term “coincide,” which means to happen at the same time, whereas coincidence requires a bit of magic.
An unexpected arrival.
Which one is it?
I believe each and every one of us is privately are always trying to place our self into situations that will grant us fulfillment.
It may be the definition of sanity.
I go places that make me feel good. If I don’t go places that make me feel good, I end up feeling bad by my own decision.
So is it possible that we maneuvers our beings to coincide with promising possibilities, and then, all of a sudden we find ourselves in a delightful coincidence?
Are we manipulators of our circumstances, so that we can declare a miracle from God?
Do we shift, shimmy and wiggle our way on streets that we deem will give us an avenue to pleasure instead of pain, and then act pleasantly surprised at our destination?
Perhaps it’s just impossible to have coincidence without coinciding our energy in a particular direction.
All I know is, the more I try to be happy, the more often happiness inhabits my heart.
Disheartened? I use it to confirm my disappointment.
I will coincide with good things so when the coincidence of goodness comes my way, I can be overjoyed.
