Synchronicity.

Welcome to the Friday Loose Bloggers Consortium where Akanksha, Anu, Ashok, Conrad, Delirious, gaelikaa, Grannymar, Magpie11, Padmum and I write on the same topic. Please do visit the linked blogs to get nine different flavours of the same topic. Today’s topic has been chosen by Delirious.

Synchronicity is an apparently meaningful coincidence in time of two or more similar or identical events that are causally unrelated.

I am a great believer in this principle. I keep seeing it happening all the time. Let me give you two recent instances.

Last week I received a story from a friend in my in box. The next day, when I visited Life On A Limb by Delirious. The same topic was written about by her and I left the story in her comment box. Don’t miss reading her post and my comments.

Last week again,I wrote my post on Enlightenment and said that I was intrigued by fellow LBC blogger Ashok’s anthroposophism. Having said that, I wished to refresh my memory about that complex philosophy that I had studied many years ago, and spent some time locating the relevant book and spending some time reading up on it. The same evening, another friend from Brazil wrote to me asking for a brief introduction about anthroposophism, without having read my blog. Since I had just that afternoon read up on it, it was a simple matter to respond immediately and he was zapped.

Both the above topics are not ordinary every day matters that one talks about or reads about in the daily newspapers. Why did these two coincidences happen at exactly the right moments?

These kind of things keep happening all the time to me. I have even written about them earlier in some of my non LBC posts. I am convinced that everything that happens has a message in it for us, if only we keep ourselves open to receiving such messages and appreciating them.
