Yesterday, I was browsing through my old messages on Facebook. One of these messages was from an actor. I had liked his work and had written a message complimenting him about the work. He wrote back saying that he was looking for some scripts. At that time ( ten years ago), I had not thought about writing anything of my own though as a journalist, I was writing for newspapers etc.
The interesting bit was that his query was quite a general one. But at that time, I percieved it as an inspiration. I ended up writing my first novel . The protagonist in my novel was given his first name. Oddly, the communication stopped after that message. Probably because the interaction had served its purpose and the message had been delivered.
The result of this interaction was that my novel Faith- The Mystery Of The Missing Girl, was published and those who read it loved it. And it all started because of this little conversation on Facebook.
Come to think of it, we meet so many people in our lives. People who are not related to us or will never even be a part of our lives. They work like catalysts- a word, a spark or a trigger speeds up the reaction but they are never the part of the reaction. They become the messengers from the universe delivering the right message to the right person at the right time.
All of us become messengers for other people. You don’t have to be an actor or a celebrity or someone known to impact a stranger’s life. You may even never realize the role your actions or words or even a smile played in completely changing some one’s life and perhaps you will never even know. Or maybe none of us need to know! Perhaps this is what synchronicity is all about.
What do you think? Has something like this happened with you? Please share in the comments section!
