When something good happens I think "the universe got my back". I'm aware of principal #1 of hermeticism - everything is mind, so I know it's not "the universe" but mind. And the other principles which tie in. Everything happens for a reason.

THE PRINCIPLE OF MENTALISM: "All is mind, the Universe is Mental."

But I've started trusting this when something "bad" happens even though I cannot explain the reason.

For example today I was offered a really good golf driver for about 1/3 of the price it should be. Due to circumstance the only trousers I have to wear today are white/ivory coloured, and my dog pissed on them. Strike 1.

On top of that my debit card went walkies. I don't do credit so it's my only card. Looked everywhere and it's vanished completely yet I had it last night. Strike 2.

It's like the universe (mind) doesn't want me to go and buy this golf club. I don't know why. I mean it's good for me (social and fitness) it doesn't harm anyone, (I don't play golf just driving range so no chance of being caught up in a cult / rituals (we've seen the threads)). It gets me out.

Yet everything is part of one great mind so it's all for a reason, right?

Strike 1, could’ve worn shorts

Strike 2, go to bank to get a new card reissued for free, withdraw cash

Gotta grab the situation by the balls and handle it, only you can dictate your life, shouldn’t let a perspective steal your wheel just because you created a pattern to notice, maybe don’t play victim  Remember it’s mind over matter

Do you exert your will on the universe or does it exert its will on you

That's up to you. You're either at cause or at effect.

Precisely everything is a matter of friend that's why those who can cut frames control the world

Well despite these problems I bought it in the end anyway, but I was just wondering if there's any merit into listening what the universe has to say...obviously not.

Listening is not the same as letting someone/thing impose their will on you.

I think you overestimate my intelligence  ;D

I also think you should know me better by now too.

I think I've estimated you fairly accurately but i could be wrong.. I'm not speaking to your intent so much is the function. Unless a question like the title of your thread is specific to a particular topic it's at best a circular klusterfuk of opinions..
