Why Did the Universe Decide My Place Was Here in Toronto Right Now?

  • Reading time:4 mins read

The ways of the universe are mysterious enough that puny humans like us don’t get it. I’m sure that’s true all the time, but especially right now, it seems particularly poignant. I’m speaking about lessons here.

When I first traveled back to Toronto from Thailand (which is like my first home), I didn’t think that I would still be in Toronto 8 months later, due to the pandemic and travel ban in the world.

I thought I would stay for a few months, five or six at most, and then skedaddle my way back to Chiang Mai, where I live most of the year.

The universe had other plans.

I was not the only one the universe had alternate plans for. Many of my friends from Chiang Mai, who had left there to go back to their home countries, were stuck there now.

The More You Know, The Less You Realize You Know – The More Relaxed You Become

When I was in my twenties, I thought I knew everything. Like a typical young know-it-all, I thought I had discovered the secrets to the world. In my opinion, every one around me was foolish, and I was the only smart one holding the answer key to life’s questions.

But weirdly enough, the more I thought I knew, the more nervous I became about life. Life was scary somehow. If I knew all of the answers, then where did I have to go from here? Where could I go but down from here?

Also, what if the answers I had were completely false? What if I think I know, but I actually don’t know? But I have to keep on pretending to know, because I made such a big show about knowing to everyone in my life. I can’t say I don’t know anything anymore, because then I will look foolish in everyone’s eyes.

This nervousness didn’t leave my life for a long time.

The Same Messages Appear As We Forget The Lessons

  • Reading time:4 mins read

Recently, I have started taking part in a lot of varied healing modalities. This means that I am spending a lot of my free time, either recovering from some kind of physical or spiritual pain, or integrating the lessons learned. Self-care has become an absolute priority for me. Because without knowing how far I can push myself, and how much time to take away to rest, I will start disintegrating very fast.

Due to this, the universe has started sending me messages upon messages, about the importance of self-care. These messages come from all sources. Friends, family members, random people off the street, and more.

I learn the lesson from someone and I am good about self-care for maybe a few days or weeks. And then I forget about its importance, or I get busy. Instantly, the universe will perk up again, and send me another message from another person or situation about the importance of self-care. Hopefully, this will then reestablish itself into my mind space.

The Stoic Concept Of Loving Your Fate Is So Beautiful

I was listening to some beautiful Japanese anime music, when it happened. My car was hit in the back by someone who didn’t stop in time because perhaps they were distracted. Of course, they were at fault. Not only because in my city and province, the rule states so, but also, because he admitted that he was in a hurry.

I ended up consoling the poor guy, because he was so filled with fear, and was shaking with it. His lips and hands were trembling. I felt so terrible for him. As I sat back in the car, after exchanging insurance information with him, I had this interesting thought. I wondered to myself why the beautiful and generous universe had decided to send me this car accident at this time. What was her reasoning?

I am a sort of reverse paranoid, where I believe the universe is always working towards ensuring that I am happy, healthy, and living my best life. Everything the universe does for me is to ensure that something good happens for me.
