It Found Me

In today's Metro newspaper there is an advert on page 19 for Selfridges & Co with the slogan: "I didn't find it, it found me."

That slogan reflects what I believe. When you know that all possibilities already exists; when you know all your dreams have already come true you don't go looking for them. You let your dreams come and find you and they will.

I discovered this principle of letting things find me a few years ago when I was pining for a lost love. One day I was inspired to attend a Quakers meeting. The first time I ever attended a Quakers meeting was when this guy I had met randomly at a bookshop had suggested I go with him. The next time I was inspired was when I was pining. When I arrived at the meeting house, I saw the friend who had invited me many years before. I was very happy to see him and he remembered me. He said he doesn't attend the meetings he just goes to read their books and chat to the members. While we were chatting, he stared into my eyes and said: "Don't go looking for love, love will come to you." He repeated the message. I found a lot of comfort in that message.

Over the years I've found that message to be so true. I find people who resonate with my writings always find me. I find friends who resonate with me come looking for me. I've even had an old friend who came looking for me in my sleeping dream and we ended up meeting up in this waking dream.

By the way, the guy I had been pining for did come back and we are now just good friends.

There really is no need to chase what is already mine; love will come and find me.
