Again with a shorter post today, as I don’t really have any divine inspiration. But, I’d like to talk a minute about spontaneity in life. Many people accept understanding of this matter with various explanations: “Everything happens for a reason”; “There are no coincidences”; etc.
For us, we explain it with the interaction between thought, will, and action in relation to the Universe. In addition, the more that we are aware of the relationship between those three and the universe, the higher chance there is of any of those three affecting the Universe – essentially, pulling its strings to make way for our thought/will/action.
But the Universe has its own plans for us, too. And sometimes, it is not the wisest to carve a path through our lives, but instead follow where the opportunities open. That is how people start with a botany degree and end up working for the government in finances.
Which is how, today, after stopping by my college to meet with my boss and say hi to a few professors, I ended up with a housesitting job for the middle two weeks of August. And a free lunch.
Beat that for random.
