I have always believed in the universe, how it connects with us and how those connections bring people into our lives, if only for a fleeting moment. I also believe why people aren’t supposed to stay, or why we’re not supposed to stay in other people’s lives.
People come into our lives, often with a message unbeknown to us, unless we’re aware of how the connection works. When it comes to life of course, some of us won’t consciously stop to think about those connections, why they happen or what they mean, but others will be aware of why those connections happen.
Purposeful connections are there specifically to help us look at our lives, to bring what we’re doing into focus, so that we can work through those things and choose to do those things differently. That connection may be fleeting. It may be for a few weeks, even a few months, but those connections are meant to happen. The universe doesn’t advertise, so it would be easy for us to miss its message.
I remember a conversation that took place with a tutor who fleetingly came into my life. She asked me a question about the course my daughter was thinking of doing at university the following year, but after a few minutes of our conversation, the penny dropped that the conversation that had just taken place, had in fact taken place for a reason and I smiled because I knew exactly what that reason was.
For me, it was clear. Not having that conversation would have taken my daughter down the wrong route and because I wasn’t comfortable with her choice and there was already a question mark there for me, this phone call brought me the answer I needed. When it comes to those connections, I don’t think we consciously look for an understanding, but they are there.
With all purposeful conversations, we must bring our thoughts into focus so we don’t miss their meaning, even if it means us having to fill in the blanks. Comments or conversations meant for us will always reach us, usually appearing in the form of a message. Like morse code, we must be adept at recognising the signs of those messages.
People come into our lives at certain points, because the universe believes we need them to. On our part we must accept this is exactly what we need, instead of using resistance. We must also come to accept that the universe believes we’re ready to accept the message as our challenge, to change what the universe feels we need to change in order to continue to find success.
The universe will primarily intervene, because it knows before we do that what we’re doing isn’t working fully or that what we’re doing isn’t getting us the right response or result. The universe will always impart the information we need to know, so that we can help ourselves work through a new approach.
Unfortunately, as is mostly the case, we become complacent. We rely on our daily habits and patterns to show us the way and never stop to think about what changes we perhaps need to make. Instead of looking for a new understanding that changes the way we do things, we continue to lead blindly. It’s not enough to simply read the message. We also need to understand the message and why the connection has been made at that particular time. That’s so important.
We must also be prepared to open our eyes, to understand those brief connections, interpret and decipher the information and accept we have a new challenge that we need to take to help us become successful. That what we’re doing isn’t right.
