Tip#438: How Much of Life is just Chance OR Destiny? - The Adjustment Bureau

As I wrote in tip#436 I attended a powerful lecture that included other unique speakers for a conference called Continuum: Soul's Greatest Journey. Another speaker that deeply inspired me was Danielle MacKinnon who spoke on "Soul Contracts in Relationships".

Mackinnon calls herself an Animal Intuitive and Intuitive Coach and shared her fascinating insights on soul contracts between pet and humans as well as humans with humans. Because of my own profound experiences with spiritual phenomenon over the years I was very open to her thoughts on how every person we meet has a pre-arranged agreement (before we enter our current bodies) to help one another.

See more on Danielle MacKinnon:

Of course you have to be open to past-life beliefs and life after death to embrace the concept of soul agreements. In my life I have so many deep relationships that we already feel we've known each other in a previous life. The lecture also brought up more thought-provoking concepts such as how much of our lives is destined and part of some big plan. And how much of life is attributed to chance?

The Adjustment Bureau 2011

The movie The Adjustment Bureau is part romantic movie and part thought-provoking on our life paths. A politician named David Norris (Matt Damon) has his life and career changed when he meets dancer Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt). But then he is told they are not meant to be together by mysterious men who have the ability to alter the paths and thoughts of humans.

They say their secret "adjustments" are all part of guiding everyone towards the big plan written by The Chairman. So these men continually put obstacles in the way of David's mission and desire to stay with Elise. The story becomes a powerful mirror for anyone wishing to overcome adversities blocking their dreams and goals. It will also make you think about how much of the meaningful people you encounter are based on chance OR were destined to happen.

What do you believe?

Do you have relationships that feel so strong that they mean something deeper to you? Do you feel you have a destiny to fulfill? Or do you feel that things just happen for no reason? Or do you believe there is some sort of bigger plan for us all? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.

The Adjustment Bureau is active in everyone's lives. Unfortunately, only the passionate realize this!

Wow, that is an arrogant comment! But then, it seems this Motivatorman is a bit lofty, too.

This sounds like a movie right up my alley! Good questions, too, Emmanuel.

I believe in destiny AND free will. I also believe in alternate universes where our other selves make different choices. Kind of like those `make your own adventure' books. :)

I'm definitely checking out this movie - thanks for writing about it, Emmanuel!
