Synchronicity, simply defined is what you normally pass off as just a coincidence... as stated by Jung, "Meaningful Coincidence". But, I believe there are no coincidences.

We've all experienced it, that song that 'just came on the radio' that you had been thinking about. Or perhaps you had a call from someone you were just about to pick up the phone to dial their number. Your last unemployment check comes, and you 'just happen to get a great job offer' at just the right time.

As for me, I have these things happen all the time. I agree with partially the bit about the universe taking care of things, but then mostly we move through life 'manifesting' things as needed. We make our own existence, you have control over your own life and it's important to take responsibility for yourself and the experiences that you have put yourself through in your life. Everything we do, and everyone we meet is for a reason, a lesson we need to learn or something that we need in our lives.

For instance, I look at the clock and get the 11:11 message, or it might be 1:11 or 3:11... This happens to me more than I can count. I also get the phone calls, or the song on the radio. I look for messages and signs that I am on the right track, I enjoy this phenomenon of synchronicity. Recently, a friend of mine was trying to plan a trip that was very important to her and she had no idea how she was going to get the money. She actually 'found money' in a very unlikely place as if it were meant to be. Then she had the extra cash for the gas money and her needs were met (Coincidence? The Universe? Or did she manifest this when she really needed it?).

You may or may not buy into the idea, I know that it sounds crazy but hey look at the world around you and tell me these days what ISN'T CRAZY?? Who defines crazy? Just start paying attention... watch the world around you. It can be so magical.

The Police - Synchronicity Video

"Synchronicity" -The Police
With one breath, with one flow
You will know
A sleep trance, a dream dance,
A shared romance

A connecting principle
Linked to the invisible
Almost imperceptible
Something inexpressible
Science insusceptible
Logic so inflexible
Causally connectible
Yet nothing is invincible

If we share this nightmare
Then we can dream
Spiritus mundi
If you act as you think
The missing link

We know you, they know me
A star fall, a phone call
It joins all

Its so deep, its so wide
Youre inside
Effect without a cause
Sub-atomic laws, scientific pause

Weird shit like that happens to me all the time. I start thinking about somebody that I haven't talked to in forever and suddenly there's an email from them or a phone call or their obituary is in the paper. You know, things like that. ;-)

sting wrote some really fucked up lyrics in his time with police, both good fucked up and bad fucked up.

I think the synchronicity thing is just hostory repeating itself again and again...once you recognize a pattern, you can easily see it happening again :)


BTW--doesn't serendipity mean something similar?

Nothingman said...

Hostory!!!! LOL!!!


sorry, was typing in dark :P

but hostory repeats itself again!

I know what you mean. Like when I open the door to the fridge and there is a beer waiting for me to drink it!

Maybe....... Jung was an idiot. Sometimes I think the universe is a special place that looks after me and other times I think it is hell fucking with me.

My common sense has helped me get by better than anything else. That and a little luck. Not that I don't pass some karma around mind you, because I do. I do a lot of things for others.

go with the world don't fight it.... simple policy isn't it. I see some who do that and have a fantastic life, may not be rich in material terms etc. but they are the richest people I know.

I still can't stop the fight the need for it to be my way...
