Synchronicity


Synchronicity is . . .

Is the experience of two or more events that are apparently causally unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance.

"meaningful coincidences"

a causal connecting principle

an apparently meaningful coincidence in time of two or more similar or identical events.


Any of you who read my stuff, here or in my books, will find out sooner or later I am religious, converted later in life mostly because of my wife.  I still have a problem with cussing, in that I still do it habitually out of habit even though I know it is wrong.  My wife and two young boys have enlisted in the crusade of trying to correct my bad habits.


I am a devout Christian because of things I have witnessed which can only be nothing short of a miracle or divine intervention.  A faith Experience.  Many believe, but until you experience something personally that cements your faith in God almighty, you will struggle with faith and your belief.  I love the church my wife and I attend because they are very big on knowing what you believe and why you believe it.  They don't tell you what to believe.  They preach the Holy Word of the Bible and even present different view points on some of the controversial topics, but they believe a you should know what you believe in and why you believe it.

There are times when God has plans for your life and ready or not, when it is time, God moves.  Your plans don't matter.  You want to make God laugh, by all means put your hands together and tell him about your plans.  You understand that point much better when your three year old and five year old son start laying out their plans for the way the evening is going to go.  It dawned on me while explaining what was really going to happen, to my two sons, that God pretty much does the same thing with us, only he doesn't always explain as well to us.  Then again maybe he does but we are listening like a couple of small children and more concerned with our plans.  We don't see or listen when he is speaking to us.

I am old enough and wise enough to realize that not everything is a coincidence.  God brings people into your life for a reason, and it might be years before you figure it out why.  We may never figure it out.  Looking back I can see how my plans and my life has changed and not quite gone the way I had imagined it would, and as it turns out I have ended up in a much better place and better off for what has happened.  I know when God is working in my life and adjusting things, getting ready to change things, and I am wise enough to sit back and marvel in his awesome power and design and watch it unfold.  When I was younger, I would act like my children fighting and kicking while trying to resist the changes.

 There is an oriental proverb that says, that every grain of sand is exactly where it is supposed to be.  When you understand that proverb, you’ll realize we might not like everything that is going on, but it is all according to his master plan and design.  You can fight it, refuse it, change the course but in the end it just means you end up at the same point later in life having taken a little harder and longer road, than you might of.  I probably could have listened to the writing and English teachers years ago and been a writer years ago, but it probably wasn't the right time.  I needed to be seasoned, experience more of life, be tempered by challenges and difficulties, and mellowed in certain areas to get to the place where I am right now.  The Place that is “Exactly”, where I am supposed to be.

We should open our eyes and ears, listen and watch what's going on around us very closely.  We live in a supernatural world and too many don't see all that is truly going on around them.  Most people are going through life sleep walking, while a few of us are walking around totally and utterly amazed at what we see.

Nothing is coincidence. It is all part of God's plan. We just don't always see the link.
