Best of PONDER on THIS for Friday, March 7th, 2014 by James Redfield in THE CELESTINE VISION

“Few of us can look back at our lives and not see a pattern of synchronicity in the mysterious events that transpired to bring us our current career, our spouse, or the network of friends and alliances on which we rely. Much more difficult is the perception of such important life events in the present, as they happen. Coincidences can be dramatic. But they can also be very subtle and fleeting, and thus easily dismissed – as the old material worldview would have us do – as mere chance or happenstance.

Our personal challenge is to overcome the cultural conditioning that leads us to reduce life to the ordinary, commonplace, and non-mysterious. Most of us have learned to pursue life with our egos alone, waking up in the morning and thinking we must take complete control of our day. We create inflexible mental lists of projects we intend to accomplish, and pursue those ends with a kind of tunnel vision. Yet the mystery is always there, dancing around the fringe of our lives, giving us fleeting glimpses of possibility. We must decide to slow down and shift our focus, and begin to act on the opportunities coming our way.”

James Redfield, in “The Celestine Vision”
