You know what would be a really cool blog concept? Synchronicity. You could base your whole blog around the strangely-related events that happen in your life.
I was thinking this, and realizing: do I really know what synchronicity is? So I looked it up on Wikipedia. Apparently, the term is Jungian in nature (who knew?), and it describes "the experience of having two (or more) things happen coincidentally in a manner that is meaningful to the person or persons experiencing them, where that meaning suggests an underlying pattern."
Further on in the article, it suggested that a similarity could be found between people believing in synchronicity and schizophrenics, in the sense that "ordinary events are seen as having a direct personal relevance to the schizophrenic, but are seen as 'normal' by non-schizophrenics." Yet the next sentence relates the ability to see correlation between separate events in one’s life to a spiritual awakening, similar to those who have had near-death experiences or kundalini awakenings.
So what is it, really? I guess I sort of thought of it as similar to serendipity—a happy accident. Small incidents of synchronicity seem to happen so often, once you start paying attention. I don’t know that I ever really took it as a "master plan", but maybe evidence that the world is a small, orderly place and things do happen for a reason.
Does this make me schizophrenic or spiritually enlightened? Or perhaps just someone that thinks too much.
