What if you were a Romeo waiting for your Juliet, a Guinevere waiting for your Lancelot, to show up in this life?
What if a past life ended tragically, in a death perhaps, untimely separation or unfortunate distance, leaving emotions and experiences unfinished or unexpressed.
What if we’ve returned to complete what was started last time with an unhappy parting?
What if, what if?
Are we going to blow it by settling for someone we’ve asked to be our partner too soon?
How do we know?
We don’t, except that we can go with the flow, by trusting that our interests are being taken care of.
Not so if we’re trying to force things.
What if there is a priority of the thoughts and influences in our lives depending the intensity and the degree to which each is important.
I’ve always thought that the recent talk of the Law of Attraction is only relevant as far as other influences which are in our mental make-up at the time are more important.
For example, are there aspects of our Destiny or our Karma that might override any forcing we set up as our expectation of the Law of Attraction.
We’re free to make choices all the time.
That’s free will.
But how do we know whether our choices are, in the long run, in our best interests?
How do we know without a crystal ball?
Seeing into the future.
Are our chances of winning the lottery diminished by aspects to the contrary in our Karma or our Destiny or simply in our need to win the lottery over other considerations.
Are we always simply in the queue?
It’s a mix, like a cake.
Priorities are surely determined more by their importance on a spiritual level than our own sense of importance.
Much of which we may not understand.
It’s not either/or.
In the Tao it’s known as “wu wei”, not forcing things.
For the past 30 years I’ve lived by not forcing things.
I had no choice.
