Serendipity

It is easy to remind ourselves why and how we are connected to certain people, whether friends, family, colleagues or even strangers. Often this is because we have shared trials, tribulations, celebrations and times of endurance.

But do you ever just meet someone and ‘know’ them? How often have you felt that (sometimes misinterpreted) instant attraction?

I have often delighted my mind with the thought that when we meet kindred spirits, we feel a power surge, positive or negative (!). And as I’ve grown wiser, I am really beginning to understand how these soul mates offer us vital challenge, signposting and personal insight.

This morning whilst researching the internet, I discovered this ancient Chinese belief: “An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch, or tangle, but will never break.

Someone once told me “people come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.” I like this idea.

Personally, I don’t like the idea of the thread being coloured, especially red, but I love the concept of connection this way.

I randomly opened a magazine just now, only to discover an adaptation of the very same quote:

An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch, or tangle, but will never break. May you be open to each thread that comes into your life – the golden ones and the coarse ones – and may you weave them into a brilliant and beautiful life.”
