Thoughts from a Mexican bus | About signs, coincidences and a bit of destiny

in hive-174578 •  10 days ago 
It's been a hell of a ride for me, both these past few days and also these past three years. I can't describe how lucky I feel for what father destiny had in store for me all these years and what mother nature provided along the way. Can't complain, not a single bit. Everything that happens to us, happens for a reason. There are no coincidences or random encounters.

Over the past few years I've traveled quite a lot. Perhaps too much. Too much to the point where all I want now is routine and a normal life so to speak. If you've read some of my previous posts you already know that I'm going to Europe in a few weeks to begin a new life, or maybe a new Eric is arriving to the life current Eric is living, who knows.

Traveling so much, and with a low budget like a do can be tiring. Places, people, experiences and the beauty of uncertainty come and go, teaching you what you need to learn on that moment of your journey. Signs. It's all about signs, about knowing how to identify them and not ignoring them.

Things happen, and wether they're good or bad - in your opinion - it's not about what happens, but what we make out of them as they strike us. Everything that we experience is a sign. Oh no, dear reader, it's not randomly generated by the matrix and we definitely shouldn't assume it's not meant to be.

Don't get me wrong. I believe we have free will, and that we should strive to achieve our goals and dreams and we should fight for what we want. But we must not fixate ourselves with something if the signs are pointing towards the other end. My grandma used to say something along the lines of if it's for you, it'll happen even if you run away from it; if it's not for you, it won't happen even if you chase it. Wise old lady if you ask me.

I met someone recently. In fact, very recently, perhaps too recently even to be writing about her. But don't worry, this post is not about her, it's about signs.

Since we met, things just flowed almost perfectly - nothing is perfect of course, how boring would that be? - and we experienced a lot together. What we lived together was a mix of both situations we wanted - like going together to a place - and coincidences that made the experience be way better, and any potential problem we could have, pretty much solved by itself. It's like father destiny wanted it to go smoothly, without issues, as if giving us his blessing.

But wait, remember how I told you there are no coincidences?

Well, if you don't remember, restart this post. There are no coincidences, they are signs and they happen for a reason. And we should learn how to recognize them and accept them.

These signs were positive and I embraced them, I listened to them, so I kept pushing from my side to keep our time together - the girl I met and me, that is - for as long as I could, and she did the same. And thus, apart from the normal issues any people who are just getting to know each other have, it has been a terrific time for me.

But speaking about signs, which is the point of this write up I'm doing while I'm driving on the front seat of a Mexican bus, I just want to say: I'm grateful for them. Both for receiving them and also for being receptive enough to recognize them and act upon them.

I was supposed to be working the shift where I was, exactly the day when she walked in. After that, it was all a series of non-coincidences that stacked exactly the way they should have in order to make things unfold the way they are doing it right now.

I have no idea what the future holds, and perhaps this girl will go back to Europe and I'll never see her again, or maybe I will when I arrive in late February. All I know is that I want to see her again and again and again. I just hope that I am able to see the signs and make the most out of them, and who knows, perhaps this girl that I like so much, probably like I never have liked any other, will see the same signs as I do.

So reader, focus in being receptive you these signs. Don't ignore them, wether they convey a positive or a negative outcome, take these signs as the key to making your life easier and letting things flow naturally. I've been doing it for quite a few years now and it took me a hell lot of time and it's a continuous growing process, and I've only been able to see real results until recently.

Anyway, I didn't take a pic of myself on the bus, Soo here's a random pic of me, because I'm vain and I like putting my face out there to get a few more votes (yeah right).

Life can be weird sometimes man.

Every day I struggle with my identity. I know that where my life is right now and where it's going isn't what I want but at the same time(Career wise), I don't have the means to wild out and chase whatever it is I'm supposed to chase. A different wise person said, "A bird in hand is better than one million in the bush" and even if this bird is an ugly duckling, it's the only bird I have.

Every day I think about uprooting my life and just getting away from all these "things" holding me back; education, my annoying society, all of it. Then I remember that quote and hold on to that ugly duckling until I can find a better bird.

And about the girl you met, I hope fate brings you guys together. You got all lovey dovey and that's sweet. Sorry for dumping my issues on this sweet post but I got all emotional when you talked about destiny.

I believe in Destiny!

Yea I know this is not a timely reply. I read this post yesterday.

It's 3:03am I'm up late catching up on things I've been neglecting and something reminded me of this post. I might mention what that was but tbh I have no clue what that was - just minutes ago. pfft wtf? doesn't matter. I'm tired.

Point is I was compelled to sift through and find this again. Whatever purpose is likely different than whatever I might guess so I don't guess.

Signs... I'm glad that I did not discard that "little faculty" that is pretty fragile when we're growing up. It rarely survives unless it's supported and / or you choose to explore, expand capacity for it.

Have you recalled one from the past and realized that there was even more dimension to the message? It can be alot to handle all of a sudden. That might be why we miss the full weight of the matter on the first run.

Makes sense that we notice signs and synchronicity intensely when we're inspired. It's all about meaningfulness.
Anyway,.. as I started to comment I remembered a post in my feed yesterday by @johnguettes. He's got a way with short stories, creating little experiences. Some are pretty good. Then once in a while, one will blow you away.
This is one of the countless ways signs jump into my path.

This one rings a bell. Sign, synch or just sentiment- i dunno. You might enjoy it. (just know that it's part of a short series so it might feel random)

ah romance is the best thing, here's hoping it transitions with to Europe, late Feb isn't that far off! Good time to get here, spring just starting out!

First beer's on me - virtual of course!

!BEER

Exactly right as there are no co-incidences.
You had a very wise grandmother and now don't go chasing after the girl, as if she is meant for you, a contact will be arranged by destiny.
At times we make our own efforts and most times we burn our fingers as it was never intended for us.
We hope and pray that all things will work out perfectly for you!
Blessings!

Hi sir @anomadsoul, I really enjoy what you write from your heart in this post. Very exciting. I note When your grandmother says something "if it is yours, it yours or it will be yours, if it is not yours it will not be yours although you do strong efforts to have it. In my thought that is destiny, and this we cannot digest with our reason and feeling, there is great power and as far as I understand it is the power of God.

Hopefully your hope to meet her will be the destiny to be with her. Greeting and blessing.

hehehe I love how you write and express what you feel, I think the girl you're referring to is ME.

Look at me, I want to go to Europe and meet someone like you, that I generate that series of thoughts and feelings, of coincidences and signs.

Be free to let yourself go, without fear but with caution. Long live LOVE.

I'm looking for one because I have time, a long time waiting for it and it doesn't come. I think it's lost.

Hey, love, if you're out there and you read me, @Soyunasantacruz. Report.
