Synchronicity! The world is full of coincidences we often dismiss! Carl Jung defined synchronicity as an “acausal connecting (togetherness) principle,” his belief was that, just as events may be connected by causality, they may also be connected by meaning. Events connected by meaning need not have an explanation in terms of causality, he used this concept to try to justify the paranormal. I remember many years back when we lived on the West Coast my spouse and I were sitting watching the television one evening, I turned to him and commented “I wonder what Mary Lynn and Erik are up to?” The next day our phone rang and it was Erik, he and Mary Lynn (their place of residence being Timmins, Ontario) just happened to be in the neighbourhood and wondered if they could drop in for a visit. That was a wee bit spooky! Today I was heading home with the boys and I looked down at my buddy Lucas, we were on a trail that was blocked from main traffic, sometimes I let him off lead so he can enjoy at little independence, I was contemplating this concept but decided against it since we had a busy road at our back and you never know when a bunny might happen by. Diesel was sniffing a particularly interesting spot when I realized the other leash had gone slack. I looked up and realized the cynch collar he wears had spontaneously come part and was laying on the ground. Lucas was trotting away, sniffing along the fence heading towards home, thankfully. I found it a bizarre happenstance how I had a thought and within in a instance the universe seemed ready to accommodate Lucas and allow him to roam free! It felt rather eerie, but as of late these little coincidences seem to be plentiful!
