Magical and Miraculous

Though we may not understand it, the essential truth of the universe is that it’s synchronistic and coincidental. Everything is connected with everything else, and if we are in synch with the universe, then we experience synchronicity. The more connected we are, the more we experience coincident or simultaneous events.

Therefore, never ignore coincidences. When a coincidence happens, ask yourself, What does this mean? What is the significance of this coincidence? Coincidences are messages from your soul; they are clues to the nonlocal Self. The local self is the person that you think you are. The nonlocal Self is the unbounded spirit. You experience both, so when coincidence happens, in that moment you have glimpsed your soul, the non-local Self.

When you have a conscious awareness of your soul, you experience everything as a miracle. You feel happy, your life begins to transform. You see the connection between your inner world and your outer world; you see that every event in your life is being orchestrated by the entire universe.

As you elevate your attention from the world of humdrum and trivial to the world of the magical and miraculous, your life becomes magical and miraculous. Your attention is spontaneously alert to the fact that life itself is a miracle.

Adapted from Power, Freedom, and Grace by Deepak Chopra (Amber-Allen Publishing Inc., 2006).

No doubt about it, one of the greatest miracles. Having to rise each day and be to experience this greatness is truly amazing...

Goodmorning Deepak, still catching up on a few days of Soular Energy! "As you elevate your attention from the world of humdrum and trivial to the world of the magical and miraculous, your life becomes magical and miraculous. Your attention is spontaneously alert to the fact that life itself is a miracle." This is so true, and this is where Soular Energy comes in....it literally lifts your thoughts out from the daily humdrum....and onto a different plane of thought......and then ...you spontaneously and almost magically start seeing the 'coincedences' ...and all the signs showing you that LIFE indeed is a miracle! @ Diane D. hang in there...perhaps all you need is faith' that that which you truly need is always going to be provided for. Namaste.

We know these truths, Deepak, but you confirm it in your writings....

Very true - thank you for expressing it so compactly.

Coincidences these days (now that I'm discovering awareness) seem to be helpers for me along the way to do something I've been wanting to do (catch up with a friend, for example) or remind me to get something or lead me to information I've been wondering about.

Interesting view on coincidences, thank you Dr Chopra. It does give me a good feeling whenever it occurs, and it was like a kind of affirmation to my thoughts.

Good article. I had an amazing coincidence happen to me where out of the blue someone called me about a job that was a job I really would have like to have done and paid better than the one I have now. I interviewed with this guy 3 times and after the last interview felt really good about getting the job, but like always, came in second and the job was offered to someone else. This has been happening to me over and over again for the past 7 years. I always come in second. It seems like a cruel joke that God is playing on me, giving me encouragment and then wisking it away. This has been happening with to me with other things also. Just as I think it's finally my turn to get a break, the break goes to someone else. I try to think there was a reason for it, but I'm really starting to loose faith in coincidenses and am starting to fear them when I see them.
