Coincidence / Synchronicity


I often hear that people want to know the meaning of coincidence, or what Carl Jung called synchronicity.

Some remark that coincidence means nothing, really.

But it does mean something, and it is important not to overlook that which only you experience—which is the nature of coincidence.

Aside from it being meaningful (it can look like luck, or a premonition), coincidence has another purpose: to remind the one experiencing it that there are grand transcendental forces at work, which leads to the goal: understanding.
