Just trying to get the most out of life by figuring it out
Published on July 27, 2008 By So Many Questions In Life

I have two things I really want your opinion on in this article. It would mean a lot to me if you helped me to analyze this...


First off, I'm in this weird state of life where I feel like I keep noticing a lot of coincidences, but nothing seems to be working out. I dunno how to explain it exactly, but I feel like I'm in a state of limbo... People I haven't spoken to in years are popping up, this guy that I thought was cute seems to randomly be popping up in several different aspects of my life, I'll say a rare quote and then see it in various contexts throughout the day. Yet, at the same time I feel like everytime I try to make something happen or even just allow something to happen, nothing good comes and nothing seems to be going my way. This starts to get me discouraged and wonder if coincidences are indeed meaningful or is life just chaos (which I have a hard time believing btw). I don't get how there can literally seem to be so many things that literally just keep reappearing each day without anything else seeming to be in sync?


The other thing I would really like to discuss, which kind of is connected (though I won't explain how, for now), is the whole idea of "picture what you want, and it will be yours." Kind of like what the book "The Secret" is all about. Everyone says that if you can really picture how you want something to turn out or picture yourself getting a good grade or have positive thoughts, things will happen that way. I swear to God I think during my whole life, whenever I have envisioned something going a certain way and being really positive, it has always gone awry, and if I envision it going terribly, it has been more likely to go the other way. Thus, I have never been able to practice this whole "think good thoughts" thing and actually try to force myself to think negative possibilities so that something good happens (in specific circumstances, anyway). Does that happen to anyone else? Isn't that kinda strange?


Your thoughts and opinions are much appreciated on these issues.

I believe in the law attraction to a certain extent.  I don't think it's magic but I do believe that your thoughts can attract those things to your life. 

As for the first, serendipity, coincidence?  I don't know.  Sometimes things seem that they can't just be chance.

I believe that thought has a power on the body, but I have doubts non-prayer can affect life elements. Prayer always works out for the best, we just don't always like it.
