“Isn’t life interesting? All about choices and then what we learn from having made them,” my wife Roberta and I were discussing over breakfast.
Cause and effect. Karma ... simply stated.
Roberta and I talk a lot about love and destiny and free will. We either HAVE free will to make key choices in life ... or we HAD free will in spirit and before birth we decided how life was going to unfold. Roberta’s reference to “choices and what we learn from having made them” related to our many shared past-lifetimes and what has brought us back together again at this place and time in life.
Look back on your own life. Some of your simplest decisions led to a meeting, incident, accident, or opportunity ... and your life changed forever. The decision probably didn’t seem all that important at the time. Yet if you could pinpoint the moment it was made, and investigate it astrologically, you might find the puzzle pieces fit together perfectly.
Prior to meeting your mate or lover, you made decisions leading up to the fated encounter. You probably thought the decisions were yours alone.
In the book, “Everything Happens For A Reason,” author Suzane Northrop claims “vibratory synchronicity” is responsible for bringing people together when the time is right. “Souls with like energy find each other,” she says. And she goes on to substantiate her claim with thought-provoking examples and case histories.
What if we were to look ahead, see the outcome, and change directions to avoid the lesson? Would this be wisdom erasing karma? Or would it postpone a lesson our soul set out to learn through experience? If we could easily see the future, wouldn’t it take all the fun out of day-to-day discovery?
