One aspect of non-duality is that everything in the Universe is moving in sync.
In this way we can understand ourselves not as individual beings that are making decisions in the way we think we are, but as parts of a larger organism that is the entirety of humanity, the Earth and the Universe as a whole.
In a micro-phenomenological abstract way this is like a kaleidoscopic fractal that is unfolding in each moment creating our reality through its process of unfolding through time.
On a more day-to-day level it is like a flock of starlings where how they are moving together can’t be pinned down to each individual birds’ decision making process – they are moving as one body.
As you deepen on the spiritual path, you may start to experience more synchronicity showing up, or you may not. It seems to be important to the way some people experience the world and unimportant to others. As someone who has been through an insane degree of this, I can share that it is both a blessing and a curse.
It can invoke a lot of existential dread, which is worth examining and being with, if it is the case.
It can also invoke a deep sense of relaxation. An understanding that experience doesn’t say something about you in the way that you think it does. It arises alongside a deep forgiveness for supposed mistakes that you and others have made in the past; a radical sense of acceptance towards whatever you find yourself, feeling, thinking, doing or being in this moment; and a sense of faith that you can trust the timing of your life.
It’s important that this is not used as a way to spiritual bypass experience. You may be exactly where you need to be, but exactly where you need to be can still be a pit of despair where you have lost all sense of faith, sense, meaning and purpose. That’s just how it is sometimes. Sucks to be human.
But the in-between times, where we can access this sense of faith, can be resourcing and offer us a sense of purpose and interconnection with a deeper meaning in life.
