I have been pondering this for awhile now and, although I cannot prove it, I believe that there is a benevolent presence in the Universe. I believe that, at times, a type of kismet or serendipity happens because of this "presence."
Sometimes, a person will say just the thing I needed to hear. Or a little gift comes to me, something to keep me going during the tough times.
Or I show up at just the right time to be able to help a friend..it's like circumstances aligned perfectly to bring that moment to fruition.
And friends are there for me too. Even bad circumstances can produce some good.
Things happen within a positive flow of energy if I go along with it and cease struggling for my own will to be done.
I'm not sure what this Presence is. I don't think that it is omniscient. I think that it views all with compassion and helps where possible and grieves when it is unable to help.
Sometimes I think it is the collective spirit of those who have passed on and whose hearts and kind spirits still linger.
