SynchronicityEach time it happens, synchronicity feels like magic to me. I’m thinking about someone I haven’t seen for a long time and I meet them the same day. I want something specific to happen in my life, and, sometimes, all of a sudden, life offers me an opportunity to make it happen. There are times when I experience synchronicity almost every day, but there are also periods when nothing like this happens for a very long time.
During one of such periods, I was thinking about this total lack of synchronicity in my life. I even started thinking that perhaps Jung was wrong and that maybe the whole concept is just our wishful thinking. A series of meaningless coincidences. I started reading about synchronicity again and asked for some sign, some evidence to get me on the right path. Later that evening I decided to watch the most recent episode of ‘Fringe’. Guess what the episode was about! SYNCHRONICITY. Yes!!!
There was this fantastic quote at the end of the episode:
‘Well, destiny, fate. Jung called it synchronicity, The interconnectedness of apparently unrelated events. (…) Now as a scientist, I like to believe that nothing just happens, that every event has some meaning. Some sort of message. You just have to be able to listen closely enough to hear it."
~ William Bell (to Peter, convincing him of the existence of fate and destiny)
Now you think it was a coincidence? No way! Synchronicity. Magic:)
