Time – And New Beginnings

Coincidence, a remarkable circumstance without connection – They met by coincidence!  Is anything really a coincidence?

Everybody wants to belong, and sometimes there’s a little serendipity to who you meet and who accepts you.

Washington Post, Oct 31, 2018 Truth!

Fate – the development of events beyond a person’s control.

Destiny – Everything that happens during your life, including the future that may be controlled by someone or something else.

Our parents raise us, guide us, encourage us, educate us and motivate us.  They shape our character and along the way they mold our values.  Their love and memory leaves us with an indelible imprint that only time can teach us the true value of.  Our parents saw culture shifts and evolution yet remained unwavering in the voice of truth, equality, fairness, empathy and what is right. They are our beacons of light who even when darkness surrounds, they remind us to imagine the possibilities of the future.        Our loved ones may be gone, physically yes, but they are always near and as I think about this full circle, I realize that their best traits have always been with me.

Whether it’s a new beginning or the end, both entrance and exit can be raw and beautiful.  Delve into the quiet moments and be open to receiving the messages.  I honor their passage and channel their spirit, for strength, for courage, and for resiliency.

To those of you who have been beside me, my angels 1st and foremost, thank you for showing me the beauty and grace in all of life’s stages.

Synchronicity was first introduced by analytical psychologist Carl Jung, as early as the 1920’s, but gave a full statement of it only in 1951 in an Eranos lecture. Jung defined synchronicity as an “acausal connecting (togetherness) principle,” “meaningful coincidence”, and “acausal parallelism.” Jung believed life was not a series of random events but rather an expression of a deeper order, which he and Pauli referred to as Unus Mundus. This deeper order led to the insights that a person was both embedded in a universal wholeness and that the realization of this was more than just an intellectual exercise, but also had elements of a spiritual awakening.   From, the religious perspective, synchronicity shares similar characteristics of an “intervention of grace”. Jung also believed that in a person’s life, synchronicity served a role similar to that of dreams, with the purpose of shifting a person’s egocentric conscious thinking to greater wholeness.

“Unus Mundus – Latin for “one world”, is the concept of an underlying unified reality from which everything emerges and to which everything returns.” Many people believe that the Universe or God causes synchronicities. Among the general public, divine intervention is the most widely accepted explanation for meaningful coincidences. Faith in something Greater provides them with a cause.

Here are some TIMELESS QUOTES:

“Keep on beginning and failing. Each time you fail, start all over again, and you will grow stronger until you have accomplished a purpose – not the one you began with perhaps, but one you’ll be glad to remember.”

-Anne Sullivan

“It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts.”

-K.T. Jong

“Only when the last tree has been cut down,

Only when the last river has been poisoned,

Only when the last fish has been caught,

Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.”

-Cree Indian Prophecy

“The timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.” 

-Kahlil Gibran

“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.”

Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”

Brene Brown

“Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul.”

-Marcus Aurelius
