Mere coincidence?  

Friday, September 16, 2005

How many times have you wondered if anything that happened to you was just a mere coincidence or a miracle on a small scale? How many times have you got confused if your life really was under your control ? With lots of strange things happening people predicting that their house would be burgled..and it happens, and optimists suddenly having a feeling that they would meet with an accident and they do,and people predicting the time of their own death..

Serious things like this can be explained by saying that these are signs to give you a precaution that something bad is about to happen. And we are consoled that but for such serious things, life IS under our control. But when trivial day-to-day events happen in such a way that they cannot be dismissed off as mere coincidences, one gets a feeling that one's life is not in one's own hands.

For the past few months, it has been an untold rule that it should rain the moment I leave my house. Well, I don't go out of my house often (Probably once in a week). But the moment, I go out of my house, it starts raining. I like getting drenched in the rain, and I only wanted an excuse to do so. So I resume my journey as if it were shining.

Well, if that seems coincidental, read this.The other day when I planned to visit my friend's house, I got a phone call from an other friend which engaged me for around 20 minutes. Later when I dressed up and was descending down the steps to go to the friend's house, I had this strange feeling, 'What if he is on his way to meet me?'. I dismissed the thought and opened the gate. I couldn't believe my eyes. It was the same friend whose house I was leaving to. He parked his bike and asked me,'Oh no! Are u leaving out? I wanted to meet you.'

How would you explain things like these? Its easy for a theist to explain. "Simple, Its all God's deed", says he. Its even more simpler for a nihilist. He says," Nothing is real. Life isn't real. Happenings aren't real. So why investigate?". Confused are the people of three kinds--the atheists, the agnostics, and ME. Well, I cannot be put into any of these types since I believe that God is just an energy and it can be harnessed through the mind. Iam proud of my theory, but after such occurences, I am afraid if my theory would be proved wrong.
There are thousands of questions to be answered. Is man in control of his own life? Or, is everything pre-decided? And, if fate can be overcome by extreme will-power? If so, what does one achieve by doing so? And ultimately, what is the purpose of life?

The questions remain...
