Synchronicity is a bridge between the physical and spiritual - or metaphysical - worlds, and it's the only way the two can meet in our reality with any kind of perceived meaning. As humans, our job being to learn, we have a ready set of parameters available in learning about ourselves which the quantum realms of science have delivered to us, on a plate, as a map our minds can safely follow. We are made of quarks, and quarks oscillate, changing all the time, never still, constantly affecting our physical countenance as the mood takes our countenance to be. As depressed people, we vibrate with an energy others wish to avoid, and they counteract that energy by fending it off defensively, not wanting to get involved, telling us to ‘snap out of it' so that they can go back to their own comfort zone unscathed by the discomfort we feel in ourselves. As happy people, we attract a totally different response - a smile, a nod of the head as we pass by, a constructive conversation, a ‘good time'. So the pendulum swings between love and fear, a constant duality with which we have to live, countered and counterbalanced by the influences around us and the dogs inside our souls we choose to feed.
There's a Buddhist principle which says we are two beasts (the dog being the animal I believe is applied in this analogy), one negative and one positive, one feared and one loved. Whichever dog we feed is the strongest of the two. This can of course change at any time, and we can indeed ‘snap out' of a negative state if a situation demands us to be confident in dealing with it, and we then allow ourselves the merit of being able to command the right energy. A knock at the door from an unexpected guest can do this, or a win on the lottery. Aside from rare possibilities such as these, the best place to find this positive energy is in something around you at the time, something that might seem so commonplace as to be unimportant. But cleaning the kitchen or writing a blog or doing anything constructive with our time feeds us love energy, for we see a positive result, we've done something, and we are allowed to love what we do - that's the whole point of the exercise. Beating ourselves up for things we've said and agonising over mistakes we've made or might make is tantamount to pouring weedkiller over a growing lawn.
Quarks are the fundamental blocks of matter, things of which we are made. This will not change while we are alive on this plane. When we change our mind, our quarks immediately respond. Major transformations happen in people for this reason, over time, when a better disposition makes for a more positive countenance and that new philosophy of life paves the way for a new manifestation of spirit to become physical in evidence. I know several people this has happened to, myself included. Our thoughts count. They count for so much, in fact, that letting them run on a rollercoaster of negativity is like pouring spiritual currency down the drain. If love was money, we wouldn't waste our time so frivolously on fear.
Synchronicity is, if my interpretation is correct, a point in time when spiritual and physical boundaries meet, when an influence beyond our sight calls in a card to be placed on our table, when the Universe (or perhaps safer to say, its representative at the time) responds to something we need in a way we can perceive. For this reason, synchronicities are allowed to be personal, the moments in which they occur reflective of things that are meaningful only to us, and if we are lucky enough to share a synchronicity with another person or people to whom the meaning is also clear, the corresponding energy pulse is that much greater. We recognise this at a level we don't fully understand, but undeniably share, and this is why Jung and Planck and so many other great philosophical and scientific minds have puzzled over its existence, power and complexity. The fact that it may be comparatively simple in the essence of its application does nothing to quell the sense of mystery synchronicity inflicts upon our waking senses.
Quarks come in six paired varieties, Up and Down, Strange and Charmed, Beauty and Truth. There is much more to be diagnosed from these descriptions than can comfortably be covered here at this moment in time, but for now it's simply worth pondering upon, for these essences are the very fabric of our personal, collective and universal existence, and they correspond accordingly to all the laws which the quantum realm is given to allow. Little is prohibited in the quantum realm, but all things are possible, because they can be so. Warp Factor 8? The next blog - "Infinity, Captain."
