It's meant to be...

Many people talk about how things are 'meant to be', about the synchronicity of events in their lives, and the hidden meanings behind those events.

For example, Deidre and I went for a walk up a mountain yesterday. We were unable to make it to the top of the mountain, and so we returned back to the car. As we returned, the weather got cooler, the clouds covered the sun, and we got some great photos of kangaroos.

Now, if we had done this walk according to plan, we likely wouldn't have got the photos of the kangaroos, as they wouldn't have been in that spot at that time.

There was also the fact that if we had've reached the top of the mountain, we would have met up with some other people that had started up there half an hour earlier than us. What if doing so would have been a bad thing in some way?

If things had gone according to plan, we would have started up the mountain before them, and probably encountered them on the way down. We also wouldn't have gotten the photos of the kangaroos and joeys, which was a really nice thing to find on the trail.

How often does this happen to you? How often do you make plans only to have them delayed, or frustrated in some way? How do you know that the frustrating of those plans isn't according to some design, that ultimately is of benefit to you? How do you know that if you followed those plans according to schedule, that something bad wouldn't have happened to you?

When you find all the stop lights red as you're going somewhere, maybe they're delaying you from being involved in an accident. If they were green, then you might make it to a particular point at a particular time, just in time to collide with another vehicle. But by being delayed, you avoid that collision.

When you are open to the universe working in your favour, you'll never know what misfortune you might avoid. And when you allow the universe to work in your favour, you'll certainly get to know about all the benefits it can bring you, one way or another.

If it's meant to be, let it be.
Don't fight the universe.
Go with the flow, and reap the benefits.
