There’s a story about two businessmen who were driving to an important meeting. Each was to receive $50,000 tax free, but they had to get there in an hour. On the way, each had a flat tire. The first businessman got out, looked in the trunk and found he had not jack. He looked at his watch, saw that he had to reach his appointment within ten minutes, and had a heart attack on the spot. The other businessman looked in the trunk and also had no jack. He stood by the car. A passerby stopped, changed his tire for him, and he made his appointment in time.
I subscribe to the Jungian idea of synchronicity, or meaningful coincidence. I believe that there are very few accidents. After one of my talks a man handed me a card on which was written, “Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.”
