I just wanted to start off by saying, I tried to find / read what I could on this subject prior to posting. So if I missed something I am more than happy to be pointed in the right direction! I did find some things that skirted the subject, but nothing I felt was a direct answer. That being said.
There are actually a few things that have been on my mind. :surprised: I thought I would start with this question however, since it seems to be at the root of my other questions.
Chance and luck are not “real” and all things that happen in someone’s life have a specific cause or some relationship between cause and effect. I understand this. To help illustrate my question...
A gut feeling tells you to not do something such as going to your regular bus stop at your regular time. You cannot explain why you got this feeling, only that it is there, and very strong. You decide to listen to your "gut". Later you find out that the day you did not go, a car crashed into the bus stop at the exact time you normally would have been there.
How does this play into cause and effect i.e. Karma? It is obvious you did not go because of the feeling, but the origin of the feeling is the question. Is it simply a matter of attributing this to Citta Niyama? This of course puts it into the cause and effect framework.
But if that is the case, the part where I am struggling to find answers is the origin of (for lack of a better word) the “premonition”.
I am aware of to some degree the "Five Extrasensory Eyes and the Six types of Advanced Awareness" (I haven't read extensively on these yet). Would this to a lesser degree fall under that category? Maybe through a moment of clarity?
Am I on the right track?
