The time has passed, but has it really?
22 years have already passed.
I read a book back when I was 22, living in San Diego:
The Synchronicity of Synchronicity.
A book written in the 1970’s.
Bought it at a used book shop on Adams Ave., on the way
to my wage-slave job at the
Ken Cinema, which is a
By this point I had already read Jung’s essay, ‘Synchronicity,’ in which he coined the very term ‘Synchronicity.’ I labored through all 100+ pages about a year before journeying away from the familiar, familial Massachusetts nest, 3,000 miles away, all the way across the continent to live on the Pacific. Not only did I labor through the difficult read, I actually grasped most of it; it was like Jung’s thinking was exactly what the doctor ordered for me, hit the spot.
‘Synchronicity’ is meaningful coincidence, those ‘coincidences’ which make you raise your eyebrows (or perhaps make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up). Jung had countless of these experiences and had no explanation for the phenomenon, and thus began his journey of exploring and developing a conceptual framework and study of the inexplicable ‘random’
in our lives- the more you scrutinize it the more you see how impossible it is to say ANY of it is random or accidental- it’s all intentional, purposeful- we may not be able to explain it, but that doesn’t mean it’s not on purpose, by design.
And the more you notice these ‘coincidences’
the more they seem to happen.
This is what ‘The Synchronicity of Synchronicity’ was about, Eric.
I wanted to tell you about it.
I had the uncanny feeling of already knowing you from somewhere, even though that is impossible.
We only just met.
If you go to my early posts on here,
you will find the story I mentioned to you-
how my synchro-mystic initiation into all the ‘weird’ stuff really got going when I was 22, when I had the 2 part-time jobs featuring the 22: Ken Cinema (Landmark Theater #220) and Henry’s Market (Customer Service Department #22).
Glad to have met you, although I suspect it wasn’t the first time, brother.
I’m covertly addressing you through your inner masculine, your Animus, as Jung called it.
