That was the assessment of an DeKalb County, Alabama coroner to the astonishing dual tragedies involving a mother and daughter. Both died in traffic accidents within half an hour of one another. The mother, 39, and daughter, 8, were both killed on the same highway a few miles apart. The mother was in a head-on accident, the daughter was struck by a car a few minutes after getting a school bus. The coroner, Tom Wilson, said he’d never seen anything like it. “Quite a coincidence.”
A sad story, no doubt. You can just image how the survivors – father, grandparents, siblings would feel in the aftermath of such a tragedy. In spite of their youthful ages, it seems that on a deeper level, mother and daughter were ready to move on, and both wanted to leave this world together.
I’m sure many people reading such an assessment would be taken aback or angered by such a seemingly crass comment. On the contrary, we find the truly crass perspective the idea that these two deaths were simply random incidents that happened without any deeper meaning
While in our everyday world, it certainly seems accidents happen, even strangely coincidental accidents. But, from the perspective of the bigger picture, or the higher self, there are no accidents. What transpires on the physical is a reflection of choices made at a deeper level of consciousness. That’s not to say there were no regrets. But there must’ve been a decision made by mother and daughter, possibly before either were born, to remain here for a particular number of years before moving on together.
We know nothing about their lives. But perhaps they came here to accomplish a certain goal together – possibly related to a past-life scenario – and then move on.
We’d be interested in hearing other assessments of this so-called coincidence, either in agreement or other perspectives.
