Erle Frayne Argonza / Ra
Far apart are two minds who’d never
Caught a glimpse of each other’s name
‘Til one day
Unbeknown to them
A same shooting star of an idea
Visited both of them amid
Blankets of dazzling light.
They are both
Children of twinned situations
Whose midwife is

Two people discovering an idea or its practical invention, yet who do not at any instance have met each other? ‘Meaningful coincidences’ as it is termed in Jung’s argot, or the Principle of Synchronicity as it is taught in the higher mysteries. It was among the principles stressed to my batch that was initiated to the Great White Lodge in 1994.
Synchronicity is distinguished from Causality, and one should develop the wisdom to know when to explicate a phenomenon through synchronicity rather than causality. Causality stipulates independent variables X1, X2, up to Xn possibly leading to a dependent variable Y, mathematicized as Y=fn(Xi). Synchronicity regards both X and Y as coincidentally happening, not as one causing the other.
Let’s take the case of astrology. One should understand astrology from the vantage point of synchronicity rather than causality. For instance, the zodiac sign of Cancer (I was born in this sign) doesn’t mean that the constellation Cancer is causing such phenomena as introversion, charisma, and so on. Rather, during the period when the constellation Cancer is on the ascendant, events in the inner self synchronically happen so as to highlight introversion, charisma and associative abilities, and so on that are expected of those born in the sign of Cancer.
So what other phenomena could be explicated by the Principle of Synchronicity? Let this serve as a guide question for all of those who are journeying the path of liberation.
