Synchronicity & Connection
At first the two words don’t always have much to do with one another. In my last 24 hours they certainly have and probably when you delve under the covers a little they are much more closely aligned than it appears on the surface.
Yesterday morning I awoke and was aware that for a few weeks now there has been an audience of people that are likely to be interested in my writings. They are of course my friends and family, up until now I had been keeping my Blog and Twitter accounts separate from my Facebook. This was mostly in order to see if anyone would like to read what I have to say without knowing me personally. I have since come to realise by doing that I am denying those around me the option to read. There was also an element of fear that my friends may not like what I write and that might be a bitter pill to swallow. However as I have espoused in an earlier post, to really progress in this life we must let go of our fears.
I have therefore dispensed with this aspect of my concerns. My other thought was to ensure that articles weren’t posted to my friends to spam them all the time. I therefore set my intentions to have an area for the blog, that was associated with my personal Facebook account with a wall for the blog to publish to. Naturally as with most weekdays after deciding all this I promptly closed the computer and walked out the door for work.
Whilst walking to work I am usually aware of the nature around me, even in the city of Southampton. It is surprising how many birds and the trees all around you. I am completely fascinated with watching the birds in flight and they serve as a wonderful reminder to me to enjoy each moment. This particular morning a bird flew close in front of me crossing my path, my gaze followed and as he passed by his head tucked down and to the side and he pulled his claw up to scratch his head. This was the first time I had seen a bird doing all this in flight and it seemed amazing to me (although I doubt the bird would think so). From there on it was clear to be a good day. Indeed it was and there were various instances throughout the day of things happening at just the right time for me and those around me. This was something I would have previously termed as good luck or coincidence. Nowadays I prefer to use the term synchronicity and the belief that noticing these happenings shows me that I am in the right flow of things. After all isn’t it easier to go with the flow than to struggle against it. Some of us enter upstream this struggle without knowing it.
After having spoken with a few people at work regarding the blog and seeing an initial interest, I was keen to make real my ideas of the morning once I returned home. It was therefore not long before I was back at the computer and looking up what I needed to do. As with the rest of the day the answers came easily and the job was soon done. I was certainly impressed that although Facebook is open on my account not only can WordPress publish as my page on Facebook but I can also assume that identity at will to make posts also.
Yesterday was also a lesson for me in terms that I had compartmentalised my creative efforts here. I had almost hidden them away from those I love and respect. It is not merely enough for me alone to live in the flow and to experience the wonderful joy that arises each time things happen exactly as you would wish. Sharing this feeling and seeing those around you experience it too is every bit as valuable. Therefore the doors are now open and those who are sharing in my life’s experiences are truly welcome to read about them. We are all connected on our assorted journeys in life and now I recognise that better than I did the day before.
