The coincidences of little miracles that happen every day of your life are hints that the universe has much bigger plans for you than you ever dreamed of for yourself. - Deepak Chopra
Yes! I definitely believe in serendipity. I often speak of pivotal people, pivotal events and pivotal times that have entered my life at just the right moment and changed the course of my destiny. I'm sure a lot of people believe life is random. Stuff just happens. But, I believe that in some, perhaps, mystical way we seek out these pivotal people, events and times. We don't know who, what or when they will appear. This, I believe, is the essence of serendipity. There are some things that are incomprehensible to us as mere mortals.
I have a list of all the people, events and times during my life when these serendipitous things have occurred. We might refer to them as God's will or plan for our lives. That means we believe in some manner of predestination. Or, perhaps, we just want to believe that the universe, something we can't truly comprehend, provides doors and windows for us to pass through. Yet, scientists, mathematicians, astronomers and astrologers continue to study and explore it.
Personally, I just believe we are each a miracle and there are things that just come together for most people. Those who realize and accept serendipities will most likely have an amazing life. Those who reject them sadly may have sad and, perhaps, troubled lives.
