Synchronicity: It’s synchronistic!

“When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all.” -God Nebula (God Entity) from Futurama

I found this image on Facebook today.
On the page of one of my old friends, Trey, who has just become a Facebook friend of mine. Why we weren’t already? I don’t know, probably my lack of use of Facebook, or maybe I searched for him before and he was not there.

Anyways, that came up because he accidentally butt dialed me last night. (Apparently, he needs a new one.) Additionally, I was thinking about this exact quote yesterday as well. Though I’m not sure at what point…. And I forgot until I saw the photo today!

So, my point is… synchronicity; Coincidence for those who do not accept the idea that everything follows a design.

Another synchronistic thing that happened to me in the last couple days:

I realized my yoga class was almost over and so I decided to do some research looking for a place that would challenge me and feed my soul and intellect. This morning, I got a coupon from for an amazing deal at a Yoga Studio in Vienna that… seems or feels authentic in what it’s trying to do spiritually. It’s also not a chain, like Dahn. And yesterday, I was notified of a new MeetUp group nearby, and it was a little yoga studio run by a mother and daughter team our of their home! Sweet! I reacted very enthusiastically to this group, especially since it’s only a few minutes from my house, and on the way home. And, again, they have spiritual and metaphysical leanings with their yoga. I’m interested in the Kundalini yoga, which East Meets West Yoga Center offer. Both offer mediations.

As soon as I was geared toward finding something specific (though not exactly), things started popping up in my field of experience that could (and would) lead me to what I desire. The only things left for me, is to do!

I really just need to go a pick up a class here and there and test it out. See if I get a good vibe. East Meets West is in Vienna though, nearly in Tysons, and that’s a bit too far. But, maybe for a couple Kundalini yoga classes, it would be worth it.

Anyways, back to the beginning!

“When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all.”

LOL. Such wisdom in Futurama’s humor… Alas, the most synchronistic thing in this entry is rereading that line and realizing that it is describing synchronicity purely and simply – maybe even humorously. Definitely. ;-D

The God Entity from the show advises that the use of godlike powers requires a “light touch” so that those one intends to aid will neither lose hope in nor become dependent on supernatural intervention.

Which probably isn’t all that different from the real God’s point of view, if he does exist. Though perhaps the truth in the statement is not one about God, but about humanity. We need that balance between giving too much and not giving enough.  And whether it’s in our minds and imagined, or if there is a supernatural being out there who does answer our prayers, is also a really good question.

Bender & God Entity’s quote from Futurama episode, Godfellas:

God: Bender, being God isn’t easy. If you do too much, people get dependent on you, and if you do nothing, they lose hope. You have to use a light touch. Like a safecracker, or a pickpocket.
Bender: Or a guy who burns down a bar for the insurance money!
God: Yes, if you make it look like an electrical thing. When you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all.

Other Random quote from Futurama (different episode):

Fry: Hey, uh… What was the purpose of life, anyway?
Professor Farnsworth: Who knows? Probably some hogwash about the human spirit.
Bender: Mm-hm.
Fry: Sounds about right.

::Snickers:: I love that show.
