Coincidence or evidence of an aware universe?

Okay, so I have been using computers for at least 15 years now, and despite the warnings, I have on occasion enjoyed a cup of coffee or a sandwich while surfing the net. Quite a few occasions actually, and I have never spilled so much as a drop. When I was a kid I obeyed the unwritten law sure, but in the process of claiming my adulthood and independence, I have become quite the rebel where technology and nutrition are involved.

Once again, I stress that I have never had an incident. So I was quite offended yesterday when my hetero life mate asked me to refrain from eating or drinking while at his computer, implying that I was not to be trusted to take this law into my own hands. I protested, citing my clean record and general competence. He said, "I know it's hard to believe, but accidents can happen." Famous last words!

This morning as I was going back and forth between the peanut butter brownies I was making and the recipe I had up on the screen, the unthinkable (to me) happened. I had a cup of coffee in front of the monitor and somehow (my hand had no natural reason to be anywhere near it) it was knocked completely over, causing a sizable spill. No harm done, everything was quickly cleaned and is in working order. I can't make out any odor of coffee either, but we'll see what he says when he gets home.

If this isn't a clear cut example of our ability to create the circumstances of our reality with the thoughts we hold, I don't know what is. I went 15 years without an accident because in my mind it was not a possibility. The very day after I am warned by my loving boyfriend, this happens. Coincidence? I think not. In that case, it's not really my fault, is it?

Love you honey!

I am going to have to remember your line of reasoning for the next time I need it!

Your cats are cute.

It is NOT your fault. I truly believe in the power of suggestion!
