There are various philosophies and theories on coincidence.  Are they merely the result of our subconscious minds creating events to fufill wishes, dreams and hopes?

Are they the result of being in a highly expectant state?

Are they the result of "behind the scenes furniture rearranging" - divine intervention?

Some believe that coincidence is beyond reckoning or will, is elegant, enigmatic, and sometimes funny.  Coincidence is the mechanism of growth, the how of evolution.  It can mysterisouly open up new opportunities through which we transcend outdated self-limiting ideas, and experience the direct evidence that life is much more than materialistic survival or mere intellectual reliance on faith.  Life is spiritually dynamic.

I have always been of the mind that there is no such thing as a coincidence.  All things happen for a purpose and that it is our job to find the meaning behind each life event no matter how big or small. 

I also believe that we are set in motion to be the "coincidence" for others.  We need to notice when we feel a prompting to talk with someone; or a prompting to do something.

I agree! Nothing is an accident...the whole of our lives is carefully constructed, either by our own making, or by the gentle prodding of someone else. :)
