Reflections on Synchronicity

First, a thank you to all who participated in this week’s challenge, and to those who took the time to comment.  This interaction means so much to me – maybe more than I can ever articulate.

Up until 2004 – when I returned to university to become a teacher – I practiced an examined life:  dared myself to ask the big questions, followed a spiritual path, and considered myself a student of the universe.  I felt connected to life, with a sense of purpose, which was to be the best me I could be, in service to others.  The all-consuming reality of teaching, shifted my priorities, and I became immersed in a different way of serving, and set aside my former pursuits.

While I started this challenge, in part to replace the hole left by Word Press, I see now that it is motivated by a deeper need – the longing for community and a shared quest.

Another oriole flew in front of our vehicle again this week, but this time Ric saw it coming and avoided the collision.  Sometimes, we drive through life on automaton, missing the miraculous.  Being aware, we are more fully engaged.

I am engaging again – asking questions, opening to answers, revelling in the greater mystery.  I hope that the same is true for you, too.

If you have not already done so, please take time to read the links and comments on the original challenge page, and my first response.

Not all answers reveal themselves right away (and some never do); it is the asking of questions that matters.  Tomorrow’s challenge poses more pondering.

In the meantime, Ric’s health is good, so all is looking up, for the moment.

Till tomorrow.
