Why bother changing your calendar? Let’s talk about that some more!
I’m sure you have experienced the magic, electrically charged feeling whenever you think of your friend and they call you at that moment. Or you have a burning question in your mind only to find it answered on a (seemingly) random page of a (seemingly) random book.
Or how about when you have a dream about something, and then it happens? Woah! Now we’re gettin’ out there!
Have you experienced any of these things? Can you remember how it FELT?
It felt good. Really, really good, right?!
That feeling is synchronicity. But why is it so fleeting???
From the perspective of the Law of Time, the whole universe (including all multiverses) is constantly in a state of perfect synchronicity. Just think about how the millions upon millions of different lifeforms upon one tiny speck of a planet, Earth, all manage to stay relatively in balance. It’s like a system of checks and balances where no one species completely dominates, and more than that: The resulting whole system is stunningly elegant. Here’s why:
Synchronicity is the universal norm.
So, how come synchronicity seems so weird and elusive to us human people? The reason is simple: Synchronicity happens IN TIME, and our sense of Time is dictated by an arbitrary machine (tick-tock-clock), and an equally arbitrary (AND irrational) yard-stick (our calendar). Since these form the unquestioned foundation of our understanding of Time, our experience of it is stunted.
When we have those synchronicity flashes and get that amazing feeling inside, we are getting a glimpse of the underlying, natural state of the universe. Like “accidentally” tuning into a radio station that is all good music all the time, we catch a feeling or frequency that in reality saturates the universe – except in our time-stunted minds (assuming that we are the only global civilization to adhere to mechanical clocks and an irrational calendar!). But, even so, we do get our own little flashes of synchronicity from time to time.
Here’s an example I realized recently when I was at the movies: Watching a good movie with a crowd of other people creates a type of collective synchronicity. Unless, for some reason, you’ve gone to a movie that you hate. But for the sake of this train of thought, let’s assume we’re talking about a good movie, that you and everybody else is enjoying.
As the plot unfolds, tensions rising and falling, the captive audience and their mental, emotional (and maybe even metabolic systems!) come into synchronization and everything is felt a little deeper. This is why it is often more fun to watch movies in the theater, or with a group, than just by yourself – because everybody gets a shared experience. We are synchronizing, and it is fun! (The same could be said about live music events, a topic for which I have many, many thoughts…)
But this is nothing new. Virtually every human culture has shared in an experience like this through their rituals, ceremonies and celebrations. Of course, these kinds of cultural “art wholes” were created and refined over the span of generations and were probably more intimately woven into the fabric of the society and its unique mythic narrative of their place in the cosmos.
The 13 Moon Calendar creates the basis for an ever-transforming mythic narrative that any person from any culture can experience. Each day is located within a subset of cycles and has a signature or code with archetypal key words and concepts. The magic, to me, is that each of these key words or archetypes can have a different meaning to each person. So what you end up with is a collective of people around the planet synchronizing to a moving pattern of archetypes and with their own unique perspective and understanding of it.
The patterns (cycles) of the codes (archetypes) in the 13 Moon Calendar create the foundation for synchronicity, and the unique perspective that each person has of those codes is what taps into that super-good SYNCHRONICITY FEELING. Everybody is synchronizing to a rhythm, movement and underlying narrative that calls forth something unique to each person – but which nevertheless cultivates their collective sense of synchronicity.
Wow… is this getting far out or what?
What’s so amazing is that something as simple as daily use of the 13 Moon Calendar is like firing up the ignition on a whole new sense organ that can perceive that whole-body good feeling that is Synchronicity.
