unus mundus

Yesterday on my way home from driving my son to Sunday school, I was thinking about the character Feather in my novel The Gossamer Thread. As I turned the corner and pulled onto my street I saw the above image that the clouds had formed at that instant in the sky. The Feather! The Feather! My son and I stopped to behold the very image of which I was just thinking.

As Jung states “psyche and matter are two different aspects of one and the same thing.” This is called “unus mundus,” which translates in Latin as “one world,” referring to the concept of an underlying unified reality from which everything emerges and returns to. Jung’s concept of synchronicity is related to the unus mundus — the meaningful coincidence being made possible by the fact that both the observer and “connected event” ultimately stem from the same source, the unus mundus.

Whatever ideas are flowing through your mind right now will be evidenced in your exterior environment. You must only work on training yourself to become more aware of both your psyche and the matter, which surrounds you. Quite literally, the more you exercise your internal mind to become in tune with the external world, you will begin experiencing these synchronicities on a daily basis.
