Thoughts on the Varying Degrees of Coincidence and Synchronicity

So here's a brief story. I was at work today and not in a very good mood for a few reasons. One of the reasons was an on-going strained relationship between a co-worker and I (and no, if we work together and you are reading this I of course am not referring to you). It's nothing too bad, but I tend to internalize things which of course hurt me in the long run. Anyhow, this was troubling me and at my lunch break I thought I'd read some from a new book I recently purchased by Paramahansa Yogananda. I love his writing and thought it would be good for me. I took a couple bites of my lunch and flip open the book. Yup, you likely guessed it, the chapter that I opened to--the very first page that I opened to--is pictured above...Getting Along With Others. I muttered aloud, "Are you freakin' kidding me." All I could do was laugh. I--like most people, I suppose--have coincidences or experience synchronicity somewhat frequently. But it's only in recent years that I've taken them seriously, or at least have given them serious thought. I personally do not think they are random events. Some have studied these occurrences their entire lives (Carl Jung for one). And some also believe that they happen because you are on the same vibrational level of the event that is about to occur. I'm not sure what I believe, but I do know that they happen all the time and at various degrees of intensity. I also find the subject very interesting. And just for laughs I included the below clip from one of my favorite Seinfeld episodes (I couldn't help myself). So the next time something seems a little strange...think about it for a minute; it may not be strange or random at all...you may, in fact, at that very moment, be in sync with the Universe.



Urban Simplicity.
