We often think of our thoughts as random. Coincidental. Unmitigated chaos.

We could be lucid as the clearest glass of water, and still second-guess our better judgment, which we don’t even recognize as our better judgment because we don’t trust ourselves.

The mind, after all, tends towards the negative. Why should it fail us today? The one thing we know we can count on it for is more thoughts that make us feel imperfect, inadequate, and insufficient.

And how many times has the Universe let you down? How many times have you left yourself down? How many disappointments can you endure before you stop trusting?

But maybe the mind is organizing thoughts that need to be expressed to the right person at the right time in the right place. To open doors. We don’t usually live as though that were true, but what if it were? What if we did live that way?

Maybe your thoughts are trying to tell you something. Maybe they aren’t completely out to lunch.

Is it time to quit your job? Move to a new city? Find a new community to join?

It seems insane. Why now? Aren’t you doomed to repeat your past mistakes?

Maybe. But maybe the Universe heard you. Maybe it’s cooperating. Maybe you’re not off in la-la land after all. Maybe what you think about first thing in the morning and last thing before falling asleep is leading somewhere. Will you follow the signs?
