Got Kismet?

Which way shall I go?

You may be wondering not whether you have kismet, but what is kismet? Here’s what Dictionary.com has to say:

[kiz-mit, -met, kis-]

fate; destiny.
Origin: 
1840–50;  < Turkish  < Persian qismat  < Arabic qismah
division,portion, lot, fate, akin to qasama  to divide

Be your own Kismet.

It feels like it goes beyond what is slated in the rock as your fate. It feels like a mysterious & complex algorithm all contributing to the outcome. It feels like you can manifest your destiny, alter your lot in life, by playing with this algorithm.

Warm Destiny by Sabin Corneliu Buraga

“How?” you may ask?
  1. Develop a belief of your contribution. Know in your heart, in your mind, in your spirit that you have a very real strong influence on your life, your experiences, your future. Nelson Mandela, during his 27-year imprisonment, relied on this invictus to learn self-mastery: “I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.”
  2. Develop an awareness of “coincidences”.  My dad has really gotten me into the series, “Touch”, where a boy (who may be on the autism/Asperger’s spectrum) sees the deep pain & interconnectivity of the world through numbers, but doesn’t speak. He’s been able to convey to his dad how our lives ultimately touch one another & helps his dad begin healing the pain with his son. This mainstream show validates this knowing that there are no coincidences. So start to notice the “coincidences”. You think of someone you haven’t seen in a while & they call the next day. You feel a tug to FaceBook someone a note of encouragement & he shares with you that he’s been feeling down. You meet someone in another country & she happens to be considering moving to your city. There are no accidents.
  3.  Develop a practice of play. Begin to play with these “coincidences”. Someone pops into your mind. Perhaps there’s a reason. Call this person. You feel led to take a different path to work. Listen to that leading. A friend asks you to go on a shamanic journey. Go with this person. Maybe something will show up immediately. Maybe something will show up a year from now. The more you believe, the more your notice, the more you play, the more you can wield your own fate, manifest your own destiny, be your own kismet.

“I am the master of my fate. I am the captain of my soul.” ~Nelson Mandela

Please share your “coincidences” here to encourage & inspire others.
Much much love,
