(Sorry... graphics STILL aren't working for me. I haven't figured out why yet.)
The simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.
Origin: 1950s; coined by C. G. Jung
Synchronicity - those moments when things just work out and there's no real, apparent reason for it.
Like those times when you're down to $25 in the bank and your car breaks down and your waterheater dies... then a check arrives in the mail because someone you loaned money to 3 months ago finally pays you back and you also get a settlement check for some class action suit that you forgot you were even part of.
But how does this apply to writing books?
Well, as with all things in life, if you want something badly enough, you can most likely find a way. If writing is your passion, you will write. If you want to have writing as a successful career, you will find a way. You won't give up on your dream. You will make it happen.
If you're discouraged, remember that things may not always work out the way we envisioned or carefully plotted out, but by taking one day at a time - one moment at a time - and always move forward, one agonizing step at a time.... We WILL get there.
Life itself is not a competition. There are ways to compete IN life, but life is just life. We all have it. The question is what are you doing with it? Are you setting yourself up for syncronicity to help you out? It's karma. The more you raise yourself above your issues, not ignoring that they exist... simply not giving them control, the more likely synchronicity will work for you.
My theory is that when we elevate ourselves, we create karmic magnets as it were. We attract more positive energies and things will work out as they should, even if we don't yet know the reasons.
So, focus your positive energy on your passion and you will find that things will work out. And if you say, "But I'm trying" or "I've tried everything." then you need to change your thinking. Somewhere along the line you're not being honest with yourself.
In the words of the wise Jedi Master, Yoda, "Do or do not. There is no try."
It really IS that simple. Everything is a choice. If we want to be a certain way, then we must simply CHOOSE to be it.
I AM a writer. I AM a success.
The information and inspiration I need comes to me when I need it and when I accept it.
How many times has inspiration come to you and you let it slip past you? What are you going to do about it? Things happen for a reason. And things work out if we let them.
