Jung defined synchronicity as meaningful coincidences. He also found that the more whole a patient became – “whole” as in psychologically accepting of their own nature – the more often synchronistic events would occur in their lives. Many spiritual seekers also find synchronicity prevalent in their lives, probably due to the relaxing of the ego. I have long suspected that, to quote myself, “the less there is of me, the more there is of Her.” “Her” being God/Spirit/Source…
Today, when I woke, I found two emails in my inbox. One from Doug telling me David Carradine – who played Kwai Chang Caine on the TV series Kung Fu – had died, and one from my friend, Scully. This struck me since:
- I had just mentioned the Caine character the other day on this blog
- David Carradine apparently committed suicide
- I had feared, since I hadn’t heard from her in a long time and she hadn’t answered my emails and I knew she was very depressed, that Scully had committed suicide
Even though I have often considered suicide because of quality of life issues – and as a bonus, serious contemplation of death is a very powerful tool for spiritual growth – I had never considered it because of depression. The suicide “theme” is the synchronistic – the meaningful – quaility of these events.
So, this morning, I was thrilled to hear that Scully was alive and didn’t succumb to her sadness – and I was saddened to hear that Mr. Carradine had passed and hope that it wasn’t due to depression.
A strange and synchronistic morning.
