How can the divine Oneness be seen?
In beautiful forms, breathtaking wonders, awe-inspiring miracles?
The Tao is not obliged to present itself in this way.
If you are willing to be lived by it, you will see it everywhere,
even in the most ordinary things. ~ Lao Tzu
“Synchronicity is choreographed by a great, pervasive intelligence that lies at the heart of nature, and is manifest in each of us through what we call the soul.”
~ Deepak Chopra, Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire
Q. Why do coincidences and synchronicities in time often seem so noteworthy or meaningful?
A. They are emblematic reminders of Reality beyond time.
Time is how mind measures the immeasurable NOW.
Time is but a convenient conception of the mind.
Though convenient, time is not congruent with Nature – the Tao.
Tao and Zen are NOW, not then.
In Nature, all that ever is, was or will be is NOW,
and there are no “coincidences”.
But, because time is a product of thought,
time is always then, not NOW,
and in time there are conceptual coincidences.
As we transcend conceptually living in past time,
and begin authentically living in the timeless present,
we notice more and more so-called “synchronicity” or “coincidence” in our life stream.
These are Nature’s ‘bio-feedback’ or ‘radar’ signals
that we are existing out of time and in the eternal NOW,
where there are no coincidences, just natural harmony and synchrony.
Without time, there can be no “synchronicity” or “coincidence” in time.
Because humankind lives mostly egoistically in time,
coincidences and synchronistic signs of timeless Reality
often seem so noteworthy or meaningful.
