BOOK ONE - THE FLUIDITY OF SYNCHRONICITY
This is a text for the upcoming ONE SELF TEACHINGS compendium that is due for release in 2019. This particular text is taken from BOOK ONE - I AM YOU. YOU ARE GOD which is a minor update to Story's book 'You Are God. Get Over It!' - UPCOMING BOOK DETAILS.
The journey from seeing the world in purely physical, objective terms, to seeing it as a changing reflection of many individuated wills, is one of allowing a sense of fluidity. Just as attachment to a static story creates rigidity in your inner being, that rigidity is also mirrored in your experience of the outer world. Reality reflects both your allowance of it and your resistance to it. To allow fluidity in your being is to experience fluidity in reality.
To allow the unfolding of your being is to allow the fluidity of experience. One of the first signs of this fluidity will be through the appearance of synchronicities in your life. A synchronicity is a meaningful coincidence, and reflects your openness to the magic of life. For instance, you happen to meet someone who spontaneously tells you something you were looking to know. Such a synchronicity on its own could just seem like a surprising coincidence. However, as you step into the unfolding, synchronicities will come into your life with ever increasing frequency, often reinforcing each other. For example, you may be deciding whether you should take a trip when you bump into a friend who tells you that they just got back from a wonderful vacation in France. Next a truck drives by with a picture of the Eiffel tower on its side. Then you open a newspaper to find a special offer on flights to Paris.
Synchronicity is your Godself speaking to you through the medium of your reality. With any synchronicity there is always the choice to either see it as random chance, or as a potent confirmation that there is far more to reality than the physical. When you are within the unfolding, synchronicities can build up to levels that can shake apart a traditional solid view of reality. To be open to synchronicity becoming a significant part of your life is to let go of seeing the world in purely physical terms. There is no external force that either denies or grants you synchronicities. If you do not experience them it is simply the honoring of your choice to view the world in purely tangible, rather than magical, terms.
Your perception is not objective; typically it acts to support, and therefore reinforce, your idea of the world. To believe that the world is purely a physical system is to live within the experience of that rigid belief, and the fluidity of synchronicity is rarely experienced. If you do not believe in synchronicity being anything but random chance then you will only experience synchronicity at a rate that you can comfortably explain away as random chance. Your story is always honored; this is why the decision to change your story can only come from within.
Synchronicities are your Godself communicating with you. They strongly point to the underlying interconnectedness of life. They are therefore threatening to a purely physical point of view. The easiest way to bring synchronicities into your life is to come to trust in your intuition and gut instinct. This choice to validate your inner feelings leads you to experience synchronicity. This is expressed most beautifully when two people, who have the means to help each other, meet in the manifestation of a win-win situation. To open your story up to embrace synchronicity is to awaken to how magical reality can be. Synchronicities are neither withheld from you, nor forced upon you. They are potentially around you in every moment. To experience them you must simply allow their potential to be.
A high occurrence of synchronicity and a purely objective view of reality are incompatible. Reality is a subjective experience that you are creating, not an inescapable objective experience that you are trapped within. Science is moving towards this realization through the exploration of quantum physics; but until the full ramifications of this viewpoint are embraced, there will be a whole level of reality that science will not perceive. The belief system from which science creates its measuring tools (its perception) is currently too rigid to support the realization of a non-objective universe. As with any story, science will continue to confirm itself until it is ready to loosen its thinking and let go of its need for a separate, objective truth. How scientists measure the world will always confirm the validity of that type of measurement. Just as with science, your story will always confirm itself. How you perceive creates what you believe to be true. You see what you are looking for.
To open yourself up to synchronicity is to let a profound level of communication into your life. Synchronicity can aid you in very practical ways, such as in answering a question when you are in doubt of yourself. The means by which the response to your question appears may be subtle or incredibly obvious. The more you open yourself to the extraordinary level that synchronicities can manifest, the clearer they will become. There is no limit to how your Godself can communicate with you. All perceived limits are of your own creation. The profundity of asking for a clear sign and distinctly receiving it just moments later is not to be underestimated; such an occurrence can seriously shake up your view of reality. It is to ask God a question and receive a response. Allow the flow of synchronicities into your life at a pace you are comfortable with. To acknowledge synchronicity is to birth great change and clarity.
To understand synchronicities is to realize that you are creating them. Synchronicities convey the unified perception of your Godself. If you are asking for clarity through synchronicity then you cannot be attached to the answer you will receive. The degree to which you are attached will cloud your perception of any answer that you receive. Synchronicity is not a tool to feed your story. If you are looking for confirmation and it does not come, then you are not being given confirmation. Usually you will get a sign that affirms this, but often we block seeing what we do not want to be true. To be in a synchronistic flow is to be receptive to listening to your Godself, no matter what you are being told. To be receptive is to be open to anything. To listen without fear is to perceive with clarity.
Once you have opened yourself to seeing beyond the solid veneer of the physical world, through to the underlying freedom of potential that can rise up through synchronicity, then reality becomes more fluid. Allow time for this process, not because there is a limit, but because the experience is more enjoyable if you give yourself time to assimilate the change it will bring. The degree to which you allow yourself to experience the fluidity of reality is the degree to which you are allowing yourself to experience the innate freedom of your being. Allow the fluidity of life to unfold at its own pace. There is no race. Enjoy the journey.
A rigid reality gives rise to many unique experiences. It allows you to feel safe in what you know. We feel safe with solidity as it is consistent - less open to change. To allow in fluidity is not to destroy all solidity. Fluidity-solidity is but a quality of being that we can express in different ways and in different areas of our life. A part of freedom is the freedom to choose solidity. Let your experiences of rigidity be something that you consciously choose with your free-will, rather than being the cage of a belief that the world is purely physical.
You are experiencing your choice of perception. Reality is as solid or as fluid as you believe it to be. Reality is as solid or fluid as you want it to be. Choose.
