In the world of imagination, coincidence is a word with a very special meaning. A coincidence is two incidents coming together: one imaginative and one physical.
First, the incident takes place in the imagination. Later, the one who imagined the incident experiences it in their every day life.
Coincidence is highly natural. It is only natural to experience the very thing that you imagined.
Yet coincidence is more likely to be rare amongst people who don't use their imaginations. Without imagination, the world is cold and hard.
On the other hand, a person with a highly developed imagination experiences coincidences of extraordinary proportions every day of their waking life.
If coincidences are common, then anything is possible. Expect to be surprised today. This is the natural condition you find yourself in.
The experience of delight is the imaginative incident coming into full realization in a physical incident. The two come together, the imaginative and physical, and become one.
Things don't just happen. Everything that happens to you in your life is for a reason. Nothing can happen that you or someone else or something else did not imagine first.
This is the true meaning of coincidence.
