When something meaningful and perhaps even revelatory happens without any apparent cause, we call that a coincidence. Afterward, we’ll say it came “out of the blue,” meaning out of the depths. For every coincidence we recognize, there are a million we don’t. Everything belongs.
We do not make it happen. We are to whom it happens.
Since everything that happens has numberless causes, it is fruitless to ask “Why did this happen.” (Of course, historians and coroners have their place.) The most legitimate, energizing and necessary question is, “Am I aligned or out of synch with what happens?” This is a “now” question.
Now questions make me responsible (response-able) for what happens now. Only the now is real. The past and the future? Not real.
Nothing makes men more immediately foolish than resistance.
