Unexpected life circumstances, synchronous events, hold seeds of growth. Opening our eyes to the possibilities that surround us daily can startle us as events and encounters take us by surprise. They soulfully speak to us. They, in a split second or over time, tell us something we need to know. And, it all happens without planning or expectation.

Once we're aware of this, we can tap into vital experiences. They nourish the soul. Answers to problems can come our way in seconds if we're open and willing to see.

Yesterday I wondered about an upcoming publication. It was a concern that lingered in the back of my mind. Midway through the day, someone mentioned that "times are changing in the publishing world and it's critical to change with it." This person's comment resonated with me and answered my question. She didn't know I was struggling with this issue. 

This morning I was thinking about writing this post on synchronicity and also developing the theme into a chapbook. I turned on my NPR podcast and up came Hidden Brain on meaningful coincidences. It struck me as a meaningful coincidence, suggesting that I proceed with my inspiration. I had been pondering whether or not to move ahead with this chapbook project for a number of days, and I decided to go forward.

"Personality is a seed that can only develop by slow stages throughout life," wrote CG Jung (Analytical Psychology and Education (1926/1946), CW 17, 288.) Soul seeds are planted via life circumstances. They provide inspiration for which direction to take, what to do or not do. It takes time or it can happen in a second. But, what is sure and genuine, is that throughout life the overall weaving of our development has taken place in deliberate stages, furthered by the planting of synchronous soul seeds.

Paul you are welcome. I mean it most stuff i read on the alliance is not readable for me. I notices you are in Albuquerque. I went to UNM for grad school early 90's. i was part of what then was Men's wellness. Also we had a group of guys in Abbie that were scientists and several psychologists. I love New Mexico and my current home in Colorado. I am a prolific writer but i get a little tired with much of the new age bull and a good deal of the recapitulated jungain writing. There isn't much interesting or fresh or new about it. I write mostly in a prose/ poetry experimental style. I really don't fit into any box. I've been told some of the lines I've written are beautiful others have considered them total rubbish. Sometimes when i hear and see a line it is as if the gods are speaking through me. But this is rare and it is getting rarer. When i read something that has a little bit of salt and pepper or blues or balls and heart i can hear right away . Most of i read on this alliance is recapitulated bull.so sorry saying, but really just baloney. But truthful i read very little. And it's less and less....god bless Paul and much joy with writing....Jeff
