Curious Laws, Beliefs and Serendipity

Serendipity is “the gift of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for.”

During this past week serendipity brought me the thoughts, beliefs and laws of two giving and successful people. Not only were they willing to share these paths to success, they explained how they work, and they convinced me that I am going in the right direction. I am on the right track - and it feels wonderful!

I have heard Deepak Chopra speak before (I even have some of his books and tape programs), but I guess that I was more ready than before to hear his Law of Detachment. “In detachment lies the wisdom of the wisdom of uncertainty lies the freedom from our past, from the known, which is the prison of past conditioning. And in our willingness to step into the unknown, the field of all possibilities, we surrender ourselves to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe.”

Yes, it is fine to have goals, but we mustn’t become so rigidly attached to those goals that we force solutions on our problems, thus creating more problems. If we practice “uncertainty” we will attract a wealth of opportunities. Every problem is a seed of opportunity. You will find out more about this and Deepak Chopra at

The second voice I listened to was Vicky White. She shared her program, “Your Secret Weapon: a Radical Path to Effortless Attraction.” Her path (quite similar in feeling to Chopra’s) helps you attract what you want. “It is a path that honors who you are. In fact, it demands that you be your authentic self because you most easily attract the life you want when your environment, your values and strengths, your vision and your actions are in alignment.”

Vicky uses what she calls the Five Keys to Manifestation and, being a certified Feng Shui consultant, pays a great deal of attention to keeping the energy flowing in our environments. You can check her out at

Both Deepak Chopra and Vicky White stress the importance of having intention and knowing our purpose. When we are “on purpose” everything works together for us and for the best. How about you?
