We cannot even imagine the complex forces
behind every event that occurs in our
lives. There’s a conspiracy of coincidences
that weaves the web of karma or destiny
and creates an individual’s personal
life–mine, or yours. Usually we see only
cause-and-effect relationships: This causes
that, which causes this, which causes
that–linear trajectories. Yet beneath
the surface, something else is happening.

Invisible to us is a whole web of connections.
As it becomes apparent, we see how our
intentions are woven into this web, which
is much more context-bound, much more
relational, much more holistic, much more
nurturing than our surface experience.

Very often we fall into ruts in our lives;
we maintain the same routines and act
in the same manner predictably day after
day after day. We set our minds on a certain
course of action, and simply proceed. How can
miracles happen if we march mindlessly,
unthinking and unaware, through our lives?

Coincidences are like road flares, calling
our attention to something important in our
lives, glimpses of what goes on beyond everyday
distractions. We can choose to ignore those
flares and hurry on, or we can pay attention
to them and live out the miracle that is
waiting for us.

This is not the real reality. The real reality
is behind the curtain. In truth, we are not
here. This is our shadow. What we experience
as everyday reality is merely a shadow play.
Behind the curtain there is a soul, living
and dynamic and immortal, beyond the reach of
space and time. By acting from that level,
we can consciously influence our destiny.

In synchro destiny, we consciously participate
in the creation of our lives by understanding
the world that is beyond our senses, the world
of the soul.
