Overview

Our lives are composed of coincidences that constantly shape us. Most of the time we never learn of a coincidence that influences our life. You only need to consider all the possible events since the creation of time that have occurred in your life and mine that make it possible for you to be reading these words and you have a sense of how many coincidences there are.

Of the ones we do discover, most are curious synchronistic or serendipitous oddities that might make us giggle and tingle, but that's about all. But a few are nothing short of miraculous and contain the power to drastically change the direction and content of our lives.

Through matter-of-fact introductory chapters describing how to notice and control the coincidences you observe throughout your life to a series of short stories that demonstrate the coincidences that drastically altered the author's life, this book offers a theory of coincidence that is both spiritual and practical.
