“There is no coincidence, and nothing happens ‘by accident.’ Each event and adventure is called to your Self by your Self in order that you might create and experience Who You Really Are. All that is required is to know this. For you are the creator of your own reality, and life can show up in no other way for you than the way in which you think it will.” — Conversations with God
I don’t know if you’ve read Conversations with God, but it’s *interesting.*
My three take aways are:
- We’re here for experiences and creating.
- A cutting question is – “Does it serve you … in terms of who you are and who you choose to be?
- Everything that you think, say, and do is a reflection of what you’ve decided about yourself, a statement of who you are, an act of creating your destiny and who you want to be.
I liked the reminder to create what I want to experience – and that it’s not about learning (in terms of facts and figures) – it’s about growth … take on the experiences where I grow and follow the growth … and create experiences that I’ll enjoy.
Now let me leave you with one of my favorite quotes from the book …
“So go ahead now. Ask Me anything. Anything. I will contrive to bring you the answer. The whole universe will I use to do this. So be on the lookout. This book is far from My only tool. You may ask a question, then put this book down. But watch. Listen. The words to the next song you hear. The information in the next article you read. The story line of the next movie you watch. The chance utterance of the next person you meet. Or the whisper of the next river, the next ocean, the next breeze that caresses your ear—all these devices are Mine; all these avenues are open to Me. I will speak to you if you will listen. I will come to you if you will invite Me. I will show you then that I have always been there. All ways.”
