Six Degree of Separation: mere coincidences?
Have you ever pondered whatever intelligent design there is, say, either, by faith, or just merely, by human animal curiosity, on what coincidences really mean and how they really work?
Are they a perceived reality? Are they a mere coincidence? Are they synchronized? Well, if I were to apply reasoning, with the knowledge that I have acquired through life experiences thus far, I would say, coincidences are life’s little miraculous synchronized wonders according to intelligent design and/or divine existence/order.
In my current muse situation, I have been musing and contemplating in awe about the power and love of whatever is responsible for our existence….a Divine Creator, (God; Jesus; the Universe; or whatever, “It” is called or goes by today’s people’s personal references and preferences. You know what I mean, without having to get into semantics).
You see… for the past few days, I had a great life experience, one of those, that you must be ready to catch the fast curve ball, that life throws at you without a glove, and catch it without flinching! Totally unexpected; unprepared; however, ‘alert’ enough to react with precision!
It doesn’t matter how Divine Presence is defined, we all can attest to the existence of an Almighty Supreme Benevolent Being (Energy) that guides us while we are here on this magnificent planet earth!
So, much in fact, that with “Its” loving guidance, would not send us to this World, without giving us the gifts to discern, if we are heading in the right direction in life, in our quest to live a life with spirited purpose.
In my opinion, and, life experiences, thus far, I can attest to the fact, that this loving guidance, is always ever present; and, certainly, not devoid of humor.
If we each were to measure our life’s experiences to ascertain if we are walking in grace in the path that we are suppose to be on, according to this caring presence and guidance, we are given the clues to learn, if we are heading in the right direction. Coincidences in life are the clues that we are given when walking in grace.
The rub here is to be fully present in order to recognize these little miraculous wonders that manifest, and reveal to us, with concrete precision the reality of this Almighty Omnipresence.
Take for example the phenomenon of Six Degree of Separation, the small world theory, which says that anyone in the planet can be connected to anyone else in just six steps. In 1967, psychologist Stanley Milgram coined the phrase “six degrees of separation” to describe the world-shrinking effects of social networks.
I am convinced, that there are no life coincidences that are not synchronized! The Omnipresence is the architect of our life’s little journey, and we are just the merely earthly engineers applying the perceived solutions to the challenges we encounter along the way by the virtue of exercising our own free will in every day life choices.
We are so interconnected, that we are meant to reach out and help others. You can be the catalyst that brings about change in raising others’ level of consciousness in living a meaningful life.
At the end of everyday, one must ask and know the answer from within, What Will my Muse do?
