I have found myself describing my interests as leaning toward inner growth or inner discovery. Language fails, but this description of inner seems a tidy way to signal to someone who may be along similar paths as I. But actually, along the way, we begin to find that there is no separation between inner and outer. Synchronistic winking in the perceived outer world reflects back this truth.

I found a song similar to one that I have been searching for for months, so I wanted to share.  Here is my best sync in my flow thus far in this marga life.  A few months ago, actually in May when I was driving my daughter home from college and she was unable to help me with the long drive because she was so tired she passed out as soon as we hit the road, I needed to find stimulation to help me stay lively in my driving. I began to wonder if I could learn to “unhear” English. I began listening to the radio talk stations to see if I could stop my mind from deciphering the words of my first (and only:) language, to only hear the sounds but not the meaning. I was unsuccessful; my mind kept jumping right to the words meaning so automatically, I couldn’t stop it. So I kept changing stations to see if I could get this automatic process to loosen in my brain.  It was a long drive. 🙂

I turned to a favorite satellite station that has stories from NPR, not news, but human interest stories all the time. The story that I caught mid-stream was about a French musician who loved American music but he did not understand the words since he didn’t speak English. He had composed a song with words that sounded like English to his ear, but these words were in fact gibberish. Hearing his song on the station at that very moment allowed me to have the very experience I had just been playing with inside my head for the past few minutes. SPOOKY from the human lens, but a solid and loving wink from the way reality actually works through a different lens.  I have been wanting to find the song again, which in my memory, seemed to have been written in the 40’s, but this morning, I found a song by an Italian pop singer who is practicing the exact same exercise with language.  I’ve linked to this campy, delicious play in the field of experience.  Wink!

Then, as I was listening to a video this morning, another sync in the practice this man is talking about in this video.  Wink!

The validation of outer reflecting inner through this experience is ongoing, I know you know.  Wouldn’t it be fun to gather and share these stories with each other? In our sharing, we further reflect our lack of separation, not only inner and outer, but from being to being, on and on. Makes me imagine an Alex Grey painting, each of us, a pair of eyes of the ONE. x

    Serendipity at its finest. Once our minds snag on a thought or idea, it seems to appear everywhere. The other day, I went for a walk to get my mind off of eating. I wondered why food has such a hold on me. I ended up at a Little Free Library (containing about 20 books) and staring at me was a book called “The End of Overeating” designed to help people “who have fallen under the spell of food.” Freaky. I get it, Marga. 🙂

      thank you for sharing with me about this! What I like most about your example is the evidence for what seems like benevolence operating through every thing – even the smallest of our concerns. I remember a particularly angsty time when I would ask questions in my mind and books would fall off shelves at my feet with the very answers I sought. Felt like love!

    Oh I just love this kind of serendipity, or synchronization. I love how the universe (or whatever it’s called) always hears and responds. We just have to listen. Oh and be careful what we ask for. I put out a desire for a one piece swimsuit, and the bottom part of my two piece disappeared without trace. Wink!

      You are so fun, Alison, so willing to engage in this life and recognize the playful ways in which your partner (the universe) dances with you. 🙂

    Woo hoo synchrony flow! You are on a roll of fun with the universe.

      Hard to ever be lonely with every thing is filling up the dance card. Right now I have some cardinals who come to my window to ask me for seed. I think I am beginning to understand their words. 🙂 Hope the art is flowing well in your world.

    Always delightful coming to visit you marga… everything is just experience, without language is a powerful practice to quantum leap to our origin… Thankyou for your story.

    I’ve put up another writing challenge… 2 years later from our last collaboration on our awakening journey… thought it would be nice to create part 3 to share how/where our own journey is going as our consciousness expands. You can check out the following post, I mention it at the bottom. Much love to you Marga x Barbara x
