I started my career in a cement manufacturing company. There was a major breakdown of main electric motor of a kiln, seriously impacting production. My department head was very upset, because all investigations done did not reveal the possible cause. Within few weeks, there was a fire in electrical sub-station. The head suddenly noticed that he was wearing same very dress, as during earlier breakdown! He was convinced that the dress was ominous, decided to hang it up and not wear again.
One fine morning, he wore that dress again by mistake and realized it only on his way to the factory. He indeed got worried that again something would go wrong in the plant. While walking in the plant, he did not notice a ditch and broke his ankle. When I went to see him in the hospital, he told me that look it was the same very dress, because of which he got in trouble again!
Everyone comes across several coincidences in routine life and consider many of those as making of god or luck!
Common coincidences most come across
How coincidences build your conviction
1st time you face a situation, it can’t be deemed as coincidence and hence you would consider it one off.
2nd time when you encounter it, you would treat it as coincidence.
3rd time when you cross it and can’t figure out cause behind same, you would consider such coincidence as credible.
4th time when you know or observe same, it is most probably get converted into your conviction. You would perceive it something you can’t control and hence, believe it as a call of Heaven (or Hell)!
This is a universal rule of “1-2-3 & Go”, which rules!
Convictions so developed have element of ignorance, which is bliss until a certain breadth. You feel comfortable with those, since you believe you have no role to play and it is all about divine’s intervention!
As long as these convictions result into positive effect, no harm is done; but, problems and pains start, when these create negative influence and you run risk of these turning into illusions and superstitions!
So, what is beneath Coincidences!
No condition, contingency or coincidence can actually occur in our world without a cause. But, it is possible that we may not know the cause.
All effects or situations, which we experience, are consequence of a cause. If we do not know the cause, we would construe those effects or situations as coincidences!
Here below are fascinating facts:
If we want to get a grip on causes, we need continuous learning and ability to comprehend state of our mind!
