Unworthy Universe

Have you noticed that after a heart-crushing breakup, and suddenly all radio frequencies start playing sad songs? Have you gone to a church service very distressed and needy, only to find that the sermon was written to address all your worries? Have you read a book or movie and took a life changing decision.

As per Paulo Coelho in the alchemist “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”

I disagree. I think this is giving too much credit to the Universe or fate or destiny. There are sounds, directions and signs pointing in all directions. We see what we want to see.

Life is simple; actually so simple that it’s hard to live. The decisions we make are driven by thought, emotions, perspective, past, complexes, fear and strength. They can be explained at times while at others they are just to do with life at a particular time. Someone has told us to think big, so even the decisions that touch our lives and only our lives, we have to have a bigger picture and story to support it.

We decide our wars, fight them and deal with the verdict. We absorb the strength needed from our surroundings; we can choose to call it the destiny or scheme of universe or divine intervention.

If universe could help us, it would have first helped by restricting the population to the number it could have directed and conspired for….
