If you are aware, synchronicity, coincidence, and serendipity happen. What does it mean? Some think it means nothing. I prefer Einstein’s logic and his quote: ” Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.” (W)
For myself, coincidence gives me simple pleasure. It makes me smile. It costs nothing. Has a positive physiological effect. It is a win-win scenario.
I cannot explain why these things happen to me. Not occasionally —all the time.
6 degrees of separation. What exactly
does this mean?
Six degrees of separation is the idea that all living things and everything else in the world are six or fewer steps away from each other so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps.
I woke up and couldn’t get this song out of my head. I don’t listen to Frank Sinatra. All morning, “Fly Me to the Moon” repeating itself. Very odd.
Later this same day I received a notification on Twitter. My friend Todor, from Bulgaria tweeted. He mentioned how he couldn’t get this certain song out of his head. Being such an odd experience he felt compelled to share. Yes, unbelievably it was “Fly Me to the Moon”. I wasn’t aware Frank Sinatra was one of his favourite singers!
Was this a mere coincidence, or was it mental telepathy?
Regardless, it was fun! This experience lead to gut-wrenching laughter. Causing my face to hurt by excessive smiling. 😉
I conveyed this story to my friend Nancy. After I mentioned this “coincidence” I was about to read my huge stack of newspapers. Our neighbour shares her papers. We enjoy double enjoyment before recycling.
I randomly picked up one paper and opened it up. I am quirky I don’t start reading from front to back.
There it was an ad for “Fly Me to the Moon”, Sinatra Celebration by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
Made both Nancy and myself smile.😍
Weeks later, I was having a text conversation with my sister-in-law Linda. I reiterated about the song in my head, and then opening the paper to find the ad.
She asked what song? I told her. She was in disbelief. She is currently learning how to play the ukulele. Her teacher had sent her a song to learn only that morning. Saying it wasn’t your typical ukulele song…
Yes, it was “Fly Me to the Moon”.
Gotta love it.
How simple coincidences brought us:
Plain and simple, it gave us connection.
