Unplanned and unexpected changes to our plans can be a source of frustration and concern-especially when we have invested a lot of emotion into preparing for a certain result. When we confront these situations how we improvise, adapt, and adjust our direction can often create and reveal unexpected benefits both in the material and the spiritual world.
It is important to remember that when an unplanned occurrence disrupts what we had been planning, it may, in fact, be karma redirecting our efforts towards the path or destiny that we are supposed to follow. Rather than taking the view that the changes are, by definition, negative, we need to look beyond the immediate to see what spiritual ripples result from this “pebble” being dropped in the pond of our designs. Remember there are no accidents.
