"When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate". Carl Jung
An interesting concept.
Is it possible that essence will create an external event to bring an experience to bare if we are not consciously aware of the underlying issue? Or if we are unwilling to resolve the issue so "fate" presents us with the opportunity for growth.... But perhaps"fate" is really our own essence participation after all and that essence makes the choice for us even without the conscious awareness of our personality.
