Synchronicity - Page 1 | 2 | 3

Excuse me, but I'm having an Unus Mundus Moment!

Most of us have experienced "Unus Mundus moments" at one time or another... you know... those brief, fleeting moments when we suddenly feel in total harmony with the flow and pulse of the universe? Those brief moments when we somehow "know" and feel that our lives are being mysteriously orchestrated by a power larger than ourselves!

Those brief, shining moments when (in the words of REM) we feel more like "the windshield than the bug."

Bringing Unus Mundus Down To Earth
(Unus Mundus & Synchronicity)

Synchronicity (meaningful coincidence)... Synchronicity is a term first coined by Jung... In recent years the term "synchronicity" was introduced into pop culture consciousness by the artist, Sting (an avid student of Jung) and the Police. And now of late - books, such as the the best seller book entitled "The Celestine Prophecy," rely heavily upon the experience of "synchronicity."

Examples of synchronicity:

1st
You're sitting at home... And then for no apparent reason you start thinking about someone you haven't thought about or seen for years... and at the same instant, the phone rings and it's them... Synchronicity - meaningful coincidence... no apparent causal connection...

2nd
You're going on a road trip to Memphis, TN the next day. Before going to bed that night, you set your radio alarm clock to wake you up the next morning with music. When the radio alarm goes off the next morning, the words of the song playing on the radio are: "I was walking in Memphis." Synchronicity - meaningful coincidence...
no apparent causal connection...

3rd
One night, you have a dream about someone who used to be important in your life... This is a "someone" who hasn't been in your life, dreams or thoughts for quite some time - and the dream leaves you with an eerie feeling of concern for the "someone." Later on you discover that the "someone's" mother died on the same night and it was virtually at the very same moment you had the disturbing dream... Synchronicity - meaningful coincidence... no apparent causal connection...

Unus Mundus was one of the "story pictures "Jung used in helping explain the mysterious phenomenon of synchronicity. In this deepest, unified center of the psyche:

If an action or event takes place in Unus Mundus; then, in our world of time and space reality, this one action or event is split apart into the opposites of spirit and matter.

Alchemists and astrologers had the old saying, "As above [spirit], so below [matter]"...

Spirit
Matter
the thought of the old friend
the old friend calls you

Certainly no "real world," time and space causal connection... Unus Mundus... the god image within... those all too brief, fleeting moments when we suddenly feel in total harmony with the flow and pulse of the universe? Those brief moments when we somehow "know" and feel that our lives are "in sync" and being mysteriously orchestrated by a power larger than ourselves!
