Nice Accident

I took a few journals outside to spray with workable fixative. I placed a double page spread on the patio stones, and was delighted with the way the plants above them cast shadows over them.

Of course I had to run and get my camera and capture the effect on a few more pages. Having plant shadows fall on pages that have a plant-like feel to them is a nice accident. Nice accident sounds like an oxymoron to me ~ that’s why Jung coined the word synchronicity to use instead.

In shamanistic cultures, synchronicities are considered to be teachings as well as signs indicating where one should focus one’s attention. Such correspondences demonstrate the usually hidden links between the individual psyche and the larger world. …………~ Daniel Pinchbeck

According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous. …………~ Deepak Chopra


If only God would give me a sign – like making a large deposit in my name in at Swiss bank.

…………~ Woody Allen
