You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

By Jo Mooy

When we consciously maneuver thoughts and emotions, focus on the desire, then let go of the attachment to the outcome, we set the principles of Quantum Physics in action and make seemingly impossible outcomes appear quite normal.

When events out of time or place, with no direct relationship, conspire to align or connect in a way that seems remarkable or extraordinary, people use different terms to define what happened. They call it coincidence. Or synchronicity. Or luck. Or a prayer answered. Or simply, being in the right place at the right time. Those terms worked for a while. But in the 21st century, there’s a greater understanding of what’s really occurring behind the curtain. This understanding comes with a knowing acceptance that things needing a resolution will align perfectly and flawlessly with no seeming direct intervention on anyone’s part.

A new phrase came about that summarizes these preposterously unrelated events that come together to resolve an issue: You Can’t Make This Stuff Up (YCMTSUp). This shorthand phrase is often used to make an impossible outcome appear quite normal. YCMTSUp also puts the complex principles of Quantum Physics into an easy-to-assimilate understanding. Here’s how.

The belief system that “we create the reality we experience” allows us to see how the strands of unrelated things happen cohesively in a connected way. Quantum Physics explains the nature of matter and energy at the subatomic level, and demonstrates that the act of observing something will influence that which is being observed. These subatomic particles are related to each other, even when separated by large distances. That’s the science behind coincidence, synchronicity, luck, or answers to prayers. It also explains why seemingly “unrelated happenings” will resolve easily with frequency and seamlessness, in such a way that the uninitiated will view the results with awe. Those with a basic knowledge about Quantum Physics will instead say, “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up.” These three examples will better illustrate what I mean.

A Jar of Four-Bean Salad—I checked two pantries where extra jars were stored but there were none. I put it on the grocery list. The grocery stores were sold out. I kept going to the pantry, positive there must be another jar hiding somewhere. I moved the olives, the artichokes, the spaghetti sauce, the hearts of palm, looking for the hidden jar. It wasn’t there. Back to the grocery store—none in stock. A day later I opened the same pantry to get spaghetti sauce. Right there, in front of the spaghetti sauce was a new jar of Four-Bean Salad. How did it get there? No one had bought it and the stores were out of it. You Can’t Make This Stuff Up.

The Deaths of Musicians in 2016—Eight well-known musicians died in 2016, the last one Prince. CNN listed their deaths, recalling others like Michael Jackson, Mama Cass and Janice Joplin, who also died too young. Watching the news I noticed Niagara Falls had been lit up in royal purple lights to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday. At the exact same time the radio was playing “Purple Rain.” Getting in my car to run an errand, I plugged in a jump drive with 1,000 songs on it. The first song that began to play? Prince’s “Little Red Corvette.” The next song? “Thriller” by Michael Jackson. I flipped to FM on the radio and Janice Joplin’s “Me and Bobbie McGee” was playing. You Can’t Make This Stuff Up.

The Magna Carta in Salisbury Cathedral—King John’s original Magna Carta is under glass, in a special room. Tourists line up 10 deep to see it. There was an announcement the Magna Carta room would close in five minutes. It was too late to get through the line to see it. We sat forlornly in the vestibule saying to each other that we had traveled 4,500 miles and missed the only chance to see it. The octogenarian docent peeped out the door, saw us, and gestured for us to come inside the room. She had been “The Magna Carta Guardian” for decades. She said, “Anyone with that much fervor needs to see it.” Realizing its significance, we stood staring at it with tears in our eyes. She explained its secrets and why it was the greatest historical and legal document ever scripted. In a sweet British accent she told us, “This document is the foundation of equality for all people.”

Are these coincidences? Yes, in the old belief system. But it’s so much more. This is Quantum Physics in action. The process is to consciously maneuver thoughts and emotions, focus on the desire, then let go of the attachment to the outcome. Done purposefully, the quantum particles will align in such a way that the results of the thoughts or desires will occur. Others will call it luck or coincidence. It is neither. This great field of energy is consciousness. In this field, the quantum particles sit in waves of endless energy simply waiting to deliver the results. We live in this field. We connect with it and manipulate it (most of the time unconsciously) influencing the outcomes we think about or that we desire. In that greater consciousness there’s no need to make this stuff up. It simply happens.
