According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous.
Synchronicity is the phenomenon of experiencing two or more events as meaningfully related, though they are unlikely to be causally related. The are perceived as a “meaningful coincidence”, although the events need not be exactly simultaneous in time.
I claim that this amazing phenomenon is infact a work of the universe’s plan. I claim that consciousness is bending the universe to fulfill the desires of the Universe.
So what do I mean when I say the above statement? I mean that we are literally bending the forces of the universe and bringing about synchronicities in the universe knowingly or unknowingly to fulfill Universe’s desires or plans.
As Deepak Chopra says that it’s a sign of enlightenment, we may say that it is the universe trying to reveal its intelligence and truth through synchronicity.
So why do I say Universe’s plan? Because how else could you define “meaningful coincidences”? If the universe wasn’t intelligence then how come the universe is creating synchronicities. (Here my definition of the universe is much greater than the physical universe. I also mean the psychic universe.)
The Universe is creating interconnected ripples in itself. Every action we do has effects on millions of other beings even if the effect is very infinitesimally small. This means we matter. Our lives matter. Our existence matter.
This brings us to miracles. One has encountered miraculous situations once in his/her lifetime. And this is where the effects of synchronicity becomes evident in clear sight. Also it may also show us a glitch in the universe or the act of the universe’s miraculous power.
