inexplicable interconnectedness in everyday magic.

Sometimes a vacation is more than just a holiday.  Sometimes chance meetings have a deeper meaning than just ‘hello’.

This vacation happened by chance.  Everyone I have met in the past few days I have met by chance.  Every meaningful event from the past few days happened as a result of the chance interconnectedness of all things.

And yet, in the past few days,  three events that I needed to happen have come to fruition.

I did not know that I needed these experiences, but now they have occurred I know they are vital to my emotional and spiritual health.

Firstly, learned that some men are irredeemable bastards, but that doesn’t stop otherwise sensible women liking them and wanting them.

Secondly I learned that friendships between men and women are often just transitory bargains.

Thirdly, I met a man I didn’t know I needed to meet.  We talked of the warrior’s path and borderline personality disorder.  We talked of addiction, drugs, booze, and sex.  We talked of other things.  We talked of shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings.

All of those things happened by chance, because by chance I took this little vacation in Turkey.

Sometimes the Magic happens.

  2. When one pays attention, one’s almost always in Synchroni City. It’s there, but much of the time it goes unnoticed. Glad you’re attuned!

    1. Partly it’s this strange place, and partly I can appreciate synchronicity because I have made some progress in my journey along the warriors path.
      You know what? Your support has helped me so much.

  3. Synchronicity is a phenomenon that extends beyond mere coincidence. To keep an open eye for synchronicity, you need to know what to look for. It’s usually a string of simultaneous occurrences that lack the reflective string of cause and action. They’re called a-causal events and may be expected most readily where a causal connection appears to be inconceivable.

    1. There was nothing expected or predictable about the weirdly good things that have been happening to me in this strange place.
      I used to be afraid of synchronicity, but now I shall welcome it.


      1. Synchronicity is weirder. More like; every time I do this (like wearing a yellow bow tie), this strange other thing happens to me. It’s sometimes called the Monte Carlo Fallacy.
