The Cosmic Faculty – Order or Chaos?

The Way to the venue

I’ve recently been away on a 4 day training block and have travelled to the venue via public transport. On the first three of those days I went via route X and because of traffic issues affecting the “bus” part of the journey always arrived between 5-10 minutes late.

For the fourth day I decided I would try a different route. This involved taking the same initial train for the bulk of the journey, then changing at a different station for a different second train, and then finally walking and/or bussing the last stage of the journey.
There was a lot of conscious “prep” for all this such as looking up train times, bus stops etc.

Unconscious Preparation

So what about the unconscious “prep”? Now I’m a person who generally hands a lot over to unconscious processing especially where journeys, new and used, are concerned. Its worked for me in the past and I’ve found that intuition can play a huge positive part – if I let it. And, you may find yourself asking, how do we do unconscious preparation?

Its a kind of cosmic ordering that is linked to trusting the outcome of each step along the way as being beneficial, no matter what that might seem, and to not interfere consciously with the process in a non-intuitive kind of way. Some people might refer to this as “Trusting to Providence”, or “Trusting God”, or “Letting Fate take its course”. However you may describe this kind of trust, it becomes something you might understand at a point in your life – after which knowing its power can become very useful for you. You might call it your “6th Sense”, and it is 100% intuitive.

The New Journey

So my 4th day journey started out as usual, and the train came to the station where I was making the new “change” procedure. As I stood up to make my way towards the door the train was still moving – and there was a standing passenger blocking my path. Now, normally when you are leaving a train, people tend to let you pass – however this particular traveller decided his first action was to grab the seat I’d just vacated. He moved towards me, causing me to step back – and in the act of taking that step, and as I was momentarily on one leg, the train lurched. I fell over backwards in the aisle between the seats. I eventually got off the train in a bit of a flustered state, but there was going to be a 20 minute wait so I’d have plenty of time to recompose myself!

The thing was – when I got off the first train, there was a train on the adjacent platform that was going to the destination I wanted! It was sitting there waiting – waiting, as I later realised, for me!
There was my cosmic order, sitting neatly in my in-tray; however, such was my flustered state that I failed to notice it immediately, and by the time I did – the doors had closed and it was about to leave.

Keeping a lid on my inside reaction

On the face of it, “Grrrr – what a lost opportunity, and all because of the selfish idiot who wanted my seat.” In my re-composed state, I pondered this and let any negative thoughts pass. I couldn’t bring the train back, and there’d be another along anyway, so I just enjoyed the sunshine and waited.

Time passes and my (expected) train arrives and I get on, and the next part of the journey passes uneventfully. I arrive at the station and set out on my walk to the bus route. I have about 10 minutes to get to the venue, the sun is out and its a very pleasant morning. I’m walking along, thinking that even if a bus doesn’t come in the time I can always walk. I’d been told it was a 20 minute walk, so I was resigned to being about as late as I’d been on the previous days.

And then as I’m walking a car pulls up alongside…and I just think the driver is perhaps on a mobile phonecall, or maybe consulting a map or something similar…and I continue walking. Then comes a toot of the car horn and I stop and look to see who it is. It is a fellow colleague from the course I’m on.
And here’s the second instance of some very persistent processing in the cosmic orders “despatch department”.
As I get in and we chat on the way to the venue, I discover she would normally go by another route but today that particular road is gridlocked with traffic – and so she took an alternative road, and was now feeling a bit lost. As she did, she encountered me – briskly walking along on my own alternative route.
Our mutual outcomes were that we both arrived early at the venue and proceeded to tell our colleagues the rather curious tale of how we “found” each other!


“Some things are just meant to be”, you could say.
However, given my unconscious preparation for the journey, I was trusting in events panning out fortuitously and working to my benefit. I never asked for any outcomes – I just trusted that “things would happen” in some way, shape or form. And so they did; and even though the first “ordered” event wasn’t accepted by me, then some more “ordering” took place for the second to present itself.

If you ever think “something or someone up there is looking after me“, then the chances are they are –
and if you tap into AND DON’T INTERFERE with that process, then interesting, useful, curious and often vital things happen.

Acknowledge them and be thankful for them and you will almost guarantee other opportunities coming to pass in the future.
