Serendipity

About: abundance & prosperity | serendipity's garden

serendipity (n.) Look up serendipity at Dictionary.com1754 (but rare before 20c.), coined by Horace Walpole (1717-92) in a letter to Horace Mann (dated Jan. 28); he said he formed it from the Persian fairy tale "The Three Princes of Serendip," whose heroes "were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of." The name is from Serendip, an old name for Ceylon (modern Sri Lanka), from Arabic Sarandib, from Sanskrit Simhaladvipa "Dwelling-Place-of-Lions Island."

More about it in the Wikipedia here. The Three Princes of Serendip & the story in Wikipedia

LOA?  nice word anyway!

hmmm ... so you're getting into LOA too ?
.. just passing it through the digestive system .. seems like serendipity with anchoring and a healthy dose & use of the milton-meta models pf NLP.  It seems to violate the Tao surviving only inside a postive Universe. It also ignores that one man's positive may be another one's negative. Lots of trance induction in the Abraham followers. Seems to be the feeling domain of the thought, feeling & will triad carried to extreme.   We were brought up primarily in the thought domain. Mostly Yin.  Occultly hexes 60, 62, 63 & perhaps just a vague hint of the Grail & magick.

well seems to me that if LOA is working for some people, then it is a good thing for them.  there are some things in there that i can use.  hard to knock being positive and being aware where it leads ...
and, i don't worry about the Tao ... it will take care of itself

of late i have made a discovery re how the three are balanced, at least in me:  there seems to be  some sort of ultimate wisdom in what i actually do ... that has to be King ... so i end up anticipating and mulling and contemplating and imagining before the fact ... then i do it ... then afterward i notice and get informed by what i actually did.  like starting to speak without knowing what you were going to say, then hearing what you said, and thinking, OMG that is perfect.  kind of a strange sensation, but very distinctive  .

Do you often start typing without knowing what you are going to say as well & sometimes get serendipitous results?  I shared part of the digestive process with you not my ultimate conclusions which I will probably keep to myself.  My inclination is to test things rather than talk about them.

well ... maybe seldom ... i usually know, as if in the back of my mind, what i want to achieve with an expression ... then as i say or type it out manifesting it in words i am continually comparing what i write to that intention.   but, yes, occasionally as i write i discover that the original intention was fucked or doomed to failure ... and so the origninal changes ... perhaps at times serendipitously.   thing is seeing the manifestations actualized actually does change the intentions ... i think i wrote about that in another context too.

Seth says
keeping things that work to yourself is a might bit selfish ... no? 

of course if they don't really work ... well then keeping them to yourself is quite the opposite of selfish .  

thing is ... how do you know if they work outside of your own ego ... er, unless you rubb them on the world?   ... err, you don't!

Maybe you don't.  Things like the scientific method, mathematical proof etc.. don't need consensus & others opinions - in days of old such lead to a flat Earth & the Sun spinning around the Earth ...

well none of the things we usually talk about are verifiable scientific predicates that can be reproduced by others.  We simply do not do that here.  So am not quite sure why you threw that into the mix here.

here we usually deal with constructing (or de constructing) mental models ... your box and my box and what little of a consensus box that we can find.  the assumptions we make, er or agree to make, kind of form the walls of the particular boxes that are proposed.  some assumptions work better across ego boundaries ... some others are too dear to  certain egos and they must stay in those boxes ... talking to them with assumptions outside their boxes is like pissing in the wind ... they just don't hear you at all.

the "bam" comes from Emeril LaGasse.  Aattached to a hashtag aparently it is suppose to imply that it is a named emoticon ... most usually, as the craze goes, an emotional one ... not to be confused with a real tag (or #hashtag) used for the purposes of retrieval and creation of trains of thought.  That was not my coinage ... i think perhaps it was Claire's but i am not sure ... there for a minute i thought you had coined it.

well too many private symbols there for me to get the actual serendipity.  i am sure GW had a lot of fun making it ... and you studying it ... that, if nothing else, shows up for me in the page.
they are not private but reside in Chinese mythology.
