When you go about your day are you aware of things happening that are out of your control? How does that work? What is happening at those times? Is our path pre-determined or does God have other plans for us?
I often wonder about such things when 'magic' seems to happen in our life. It always surprises me how my laptop will freeze when I am trying to buy something, and when I persevere in my quest it always turns out that it was a ‘bad’ move.
How does that happen? I remember booking flights from the UK to go to Cuzco. Every time I tried to get the ticket booked my laptop stopped working. I had a friend with me who decided that they 'could do it' and after a long time trying they eventually did. I protested a few times saying I don’t think this is a good idea as everything is conspiring against us.
With no heed to my intuition, he continued until it was booked. A week later I discovered that the flights were not what I needed and would cost me more money to ‘fix’. When I think about karma, I can see how like attracts like, and that nothing is personal. However, when it comes to something like this, I cannot understand it.
Is life pre-determined? Is there a plan to stop us going off our route? What is it that is stopping us from doing the things we are not meant to? What is that law called? I watched recently on the news reports of the airplane being shot down and how a family who were meant to be on the flight did not get on for one reason or another.
I considered that it is an extension of karmic law and that our past actions do not warrant the experience that our decision will unconsciously call forward. Then that implies that there is ‘Something’ making decisions for us. When we are told that we are 'given' free will, and then our will is blocked, how can that be free will?
I have always seen ‘God’ as omnipotent and omnipresent, it is everywhere and in everything. I have also come to view it as impersonal, that the Universe works through our vibration and frequency calling in our next experiences. If my vibrations is ignoring an inbuilt warning sign and going ahead anyway why would ‘Something’ try to stop me? What is that Something?
It seems in human terms that an over-seeing principle is guiding us to Its end and agenda. Why then would we be ‘allowed’ to have an accident in the car or walk into some other danger without being guided away from it?
Life can seem so complex, and I often wonder how it works. Obviously I will never know the answers, though it is fun to ponder!
