Miraculous Unnoticed Synchronicity

advancing geometric flowering

A lot of synchronicity occurs without our realizing it because it simply does not come to our attention. For instance, when I was sixteen, I had a strange dream. I was with my best friend the following day, and though we rarely spoke of dreams, we discovered by accident that we had dreamed the exact same dream on the same night. My friend related my unusual dream to me in vivid detail, exactly as I dreamed it except that he was the central character in his dream and not I. If it had not come up in the conversation, we would never have known anything paranormal had occurred. Obviously, virtually all such events are never noticed because the communication that would reveal the events never occurs. Such things suggest that daily life may be far more miraculous than most people imagine and we are simply unaware of it.

    • Yes. The universe in which such a shared “dream” is possible is different than the universe people commonly picture. This is the universe in that Walt Whitman understood when he wrote that he was, “not contain’d between my hat and boots.”

    • I’m thinking the images in dreams sometimes suggest us and the spirit in dream is part of what makes us. The brain automatically makes some dreams from memory; other dreams drop in from above and the two sometimes get mixed together like a double exposed photo. Some dreams drift up from the subconscious; some extrapolate bits of daytime memories and some dreams descend upon us like the remembered whispers of angels.

      • I hear you. I’m actually enjoying my life. Once I understood the “truth” about the nature of reality, I came realize that I have control in directing my outcomes. Taking responsibility for what I create has made a huge difference in my future outlook.

        I accidentally left the word “only” out that sentence. Maybe there’s a reason for that . . . . besides the fact that I tend hit the post button without proofreading. 🙂

        I find your posts informative. Thank you writing your blog.

      • Yes, directing outcomes as you say is key. There is a wonderful little jewel of a book on that subject by James Allen, called “As a Man Thinketh.” Perhaps you’ve heard of it?

  1. No. I haven’t heard of it. I looked it up on Wikipedia though. It looks like Allen’s message is fairly simple and straightforward. He basically saying: “Our outer lives are merely reflection of inner selves.” In other words, if you are an emotional wreck . . . your life will surely reflect that.

    I guess this concept could be challenging for many people. It sounds philosophical and esoteric. I found that it’s like anything we learn in life. Once you understand how something works, it becomes routine.

    I’d like to add that the key to straightening our messes is in knowing ourselves. That requires conducting a deep inner self-exploration and a willingness to address the things that we may not like about ourselves. I found that by taking responsibility for my experiences and accepting them, I was able to make some improvements in my life.

    There is a significant amount of work involved in sorting out our internal conflicts. I found that there are no short cuts available. There is no crash course, book, or therapist that can do the work for us. It’s a matter of determination. I had to say to myself “What do I want for my life? Then I made a commitment to do the necessary work. It involved examining my thoughts and feelings. That led to me making some necessary changes to my internal programming. I’m not done yet!

    I’m writing this for some of your blog readers. I know you are well of aware what I am saying.

    Thanks!

    • “He basically saying: “Our outer lives are merely reflection of inner selves.” In other words, if you are an emotional wreck . . . your life will surely reflect that.”

      Yes, that and also providing the pivotal key which is thought and choices we make in thought directions. It is an optimistic book in that highlights the simple method of how we create and can continuously redirect our path by thought.

      “I’d like to add that the key to straightening our messes is in knowing ourselves. That requires conducting a deep inner self-exploration and a willingness to address the things that we may not like about ourselves.”

      “…work… no short cuts… no [one] that can do the work for us…I’m not done yet!”

      Yes, no “quick fixes,” pills, or lazy methods; just a lot of good directions of how to proceed. There are shorter and longer paths, and we humans have a way of creating lots of extra and necessary steps for ourselves. 🙂

      • I agree. I’m not sure why we humans make things so complicated for ourselves. We create huge messy situations that in the beginning (more often than not) required only a simple decision. I’ve done that many times in the past.

        The pills and the quick fixes you mentioned contribute a great deal to our problems. They only serve to postpone or in many cases prevent us from moving ahead. The medical community and the pharmaceutical industry have created the false belief that happiness can be found in a pill. I’m pretty comfortable in saying that antidepressants alone will not improve a person’s circumstances. I have yet to see a pill that can do this. We’ve put way too much faith in science in that regard.

    • Yes, science, especially the medical, is still working on the surface of things. It has much to do with the definition of what a human being is, and for much science, that’s severely limited by the great cycle of materialism in which we live. Science does amazing things, but still working mainly on the surface. A minority of pioneers are changing this but it is a slow evolution.

      • No doubt about it. Scientists have made some amazing discoveries in recent times. Like you said though – it puts the focus on the physical world almost to the exclusion of all else. An author I spoke to a few weeks ago mentioned “objective reality”. I’m not sure how objective our judgments about reality are; that’s debatable, but I understand what he means. It’s sort of an unhealthy hyper-focus and obsession with conditions that are , , , somewhat “illusory”. Is that a good word use? I hate to say reality is an mirage, because that’s not quite true. Let’s just say that many of us are missing the “bigger picture”. We’re slowly moving forward.

      • That was an interesting video. I liked it. I think what they are trying to say is that a person who gives “meaning” to his/her life and to the world is inclined to adopt morally correct values and beliefs. Whereas a person who has no spiritual beliefs is more likely to be morally corrupt and unethical his/her behavior.

        I endorse the “oneness” message. I feel it’s beneficial for people to understand the spiritual connection we all share. My sense is that if people experienced this “connectedness”, they would be less likely to engage in behavior harmful to their personal relationships. I believe that positive relationships are extremely important to our spiritual evolution.

      • David.., yes I think you expressed it well. A very similar thing was written a long time back by the parapsychological research pioneer J. B. Rhine:

        “Our treatment of people obviously depends on what we think they are. The more we think of our fellowmen as deterministic physical systems- robots, machines, brains- the more heartlessly and selfishly we can allow ourselves to deal with them… On the other hand, the more we appreciate their mental life as unique… more original and creative than mere space-time mass relations of matter, the more we are interested in them as individuals and the more we tend to respect them and consider their viewpoints and feelings.” (Dr. J.B. Rhine)

      • Right! In other words . . . we shouldn’t treat people as we would inanimate objects. We should treat them as conscious, living beings, with thoughts and feelings . . . the same as we most likely see ourselves. The truth is, we should not abuse the things we perceive to be inanimate either. We have a responsibility to care for the things we “temporarily” possess while we are in the world. Taking on this attitude helps us immensely. If we can get in to the habit of taking responsibility for our lives . . . . things will fall into place for us. I’ve said this before . . . but it’s worth repeating. Taking “responsibility” for our situations and the things in it . . . . “empowers” us. I know this true. The practice of taking conscious control of our thoughts and emotions influences our outcomes. I want to saying that “everything” is a choice . . . . but I’ll at least say that “most” things are. I don’t want to get into a debate as to the extent of our control over the situations we face . . . since I don’t have a good answer.
