Coincidentally There’s Space: Time to Listen

Coincidentally I love the muddle of my days. Coincidentally I had space and time to listen when someone needed it. It’s the Universe taking a hand in things.

I looked up the dictionary definition of coincidence – a remarkable concurrence of events without apparent causal connection – to remind myself. Because sometimes what has been planned turns into something quite different. But it turns out to be exactly right. I know that things just seem to happen together in exactly the right way. Yet I often take that rearrangement of my day in my stride. Today however I noticed that coincidentally several people who needed support ended up getting it without me, or them, trying to arrange it. I appreciate the Universe setting up the space at the right time for me to be able to listen. It did involve juggling a few things around. And shifting the priority items around. But it was worth it.

Coincidentally what was discussed echoed themes that are happening in my life right now, or had in the recent past. I also know that the same themes are flowing through other people’s lives too. It’s a time of great changes and life altering decisions. During these times it’s easy to get off balance. To imagine the worst possible outcomes. Or find myself paralysed with indecision. That’s when the Universe seems to take a hand in getting me unstuck. By pointing me at the people who can offer another point of view. Or share a bit of insight. Those people who will support me as I wobble forward and get on with getting myself on solid ground again. To be able to return the favour today was really great.

If it seems, coincidentally, that you get into a conversation with someone who needs a space to work things out do what I do. Listen to what they say. Notice how it resonates with your experiences. Respond with compassion. And remember that help give is always returned.
