The pattern of things

The pattern of things is loosely woven even before the invitations are sent out. Sometimes the pattern is easy to see. And sometimes you have to look beyond the prism of the obvious to see it. Only then is it revealed. Once you are able to discern this pattern you will begin to notice that certain things have been brought into your way. You will notice the intersections and street corners where events have collided. You will recognize the people who were sent to deliver something to you that you needed but you didn’t know you needed. You might also begin to perceive that the things you went somewhere to collect were not in fact what you were sent there for. You were sent there to collect something else entirely. This is called, “going to the market to buy flour but returning with bread”.
