#8 Synchronicity

Synchronicity means “meaningful coincidence.” It is when things line up for you in a way that brings meaning to life events.

Synchronicities are people, places or events that your soul attracts into your life to help you evolve to higher consciousness or to place emphasis on something going on in your life.

Carl Jung coined the word to describe what he called "temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events." One of Jung's favourite quotes on synchronicity was from Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll, in which the White Queen says to Alice: "It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards"

Think of various occurrences that have happened over the course of your lifetime, was it purely due to chance ?

In light of what is happening in Fukushima, check out the link below for the radioactive no-go zones across the planet. The survey is divided into twenty parts and is a quick read.


Interested in your comments.

#4 Marcus Aurelius

Adapt yourself to the things among which your lot has been cast and love sincerely the fellow creatures with whom destiny has ordained that you shall live - Marcus Aurelius

Thank you to the individual I had the privilege of meeting with over the past two years, and on our final farewell she directed me to this Roman philosopher.
Need to check out his work, "Meditations"

#3 Thoughts & Emotion / Waves and the Ocean

From The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying:

"Just as the ocean has waves, or the sun has rays, so the mind's own radiance is its thoughts and emotions. The ocean has waves, yet the ocean is not particularly disturbed by them. The waves are the very nature of the ocean. Waves will rise, but where do they go back ? Back into the ocean. And where do the waves come from ? The ocean.

In the same manner, thoughts and emotions are the radiance and expression of the very nature of mind. They rise from the mind but where do they dissolve ? Back into the mind. Whatever rises do not see it as a particular problem. If you do not impulsively react, if you are only patient, it will once again settle into its essential nature."

#2 - Ant analogies

How can we be so arrogant to think that we are the only ones in the universe ? 

I have used the "ant analogy" in my discussions with friends on the subject of ufo's. Basically it revolves around an ant crawling across Yankee Stadium (don't know why I picked the Yankees) while 50,000 people are eating their hot dogs and drinking their beer and watching a baseball game. The ant has no clue as to the game of baseball and Budweiser beer. The ant is after a crum of food or is trying to find a tunnel to go home. The ant has no realization that he/she may get stepped on by Derek Jeter's cleat while he is tracking down a ground ball while playing shortstop.

Here's another ant analogy I came across from Dr.Michio Kaku, "lets say we have an ant hill in the middle of the forest. And right next to the ant hill their building a 10 lane super highway. and the question is "would the ants be able to understand what a ten lane super highway is? Would the ants be able to understand the technology, the intentions of beings building the highway next to the ants? Lets say you go down to the ants and you say to the ants "I bring you trinkets. I bring you beads. I bring you knowledge. I bring you nuclear energy. I bring you dna technology. I bring you utopium. take me to your leader." Is that what you say when you bump into ants? No. Most ppl simply, step on a few of them. Now if we are really a type 0 civilization, and beings of a type 3 civilization can soar across hyperspace, they are perhaps millions of years more advanced than us. the distance between us and ants, would be the same comparable distance between a type 3 and a type 0 civilization. In other words, we are so arrogant, we're so conceited, that we say "They MUST visit us." We're so important that they are going to interrupt all their business, just so they can come to us and give us a little bit of super technology."

We are the ants.

#1 - Longevity

There is a secret to longevity. Li Ching-Yuen had the answer. It is alleged that he had lifespans of 197 and 256 years. Do you believe ?

Check out the article "Tortoise-Pigeon-Dog", from the May 15, 1933 issue of Time magazine.

His secret:
  • Tranquil mind
  • Sit like a tortoise
  • Walk sprightly like a pigeon
  • Sleep like a dog
We are spinning like the hamster on the wheel. Can we stop, and start looking within ?
