! DO YOU EVER WONDER..................

Do you ever wonder...............
Why lives intersect,
React to one another -
What makes our hearts connect?

Within a sea of others
Why do we recognize
That one specific person
Seen only through our eyes;

Some may call it destiny,
Or mere coincidence,
But I believe in miracles
And that makes perfect sense;

When two souls are searching
For their other half,
Destiny aligns them
On their universal path,

And when the time is optimum
The stage of life is set,
Two lives will find each other
That before had never met;

Perhaps a random moment,
A bolt out of the blue?
Whatever caused our paths to cross,
I'm glad mine crossed with you!

    Yes interconnectedness… the very fact that there are no ‘chance encounters’ or ‘coincidences’ is a validation enough of this self evident through that we all are one and belong to “One”

    I'm glad we are aware of each other in the apprent 'other-ness' and vastness of 'One' (Report) Reply

    Perhaps this miracle you call is natural selection that takes place at random in Nature just like ions attracted at each other to form into molecules and that multiplies into developed species to level of human beings by evolution! (Report) Reply
