“Just been sitting here listening to “Green man” by Roy Harper. Not a singer I am particularly familiar with but working with a partner who is somewhat of a music anorak, I am subject to all sorts of oddities on a daily basis. I now know many Gong lyrics, “My Knees they argue, they debate” and have recently been subjected to ‘The Hare who lost his Spectacles’ by Jethro Tull. “You Kangaroo, you can?” Completely eccentric. Anyway, that wasn’t what I wanted to discuss….
Whilst checking on a networking website, I noticed that there was an ad for a store called greenmangifts.com (which sells hippi / new age outfits) next to a guy’s profile picture. May sound daft but I find this kinda strange, that this occured at exactly the same moment as we were listening to the Green Man track. Being somewhat of an open-minded / spiritual person, I can’t help but wonder if this coincidence is a sign that myself and this person have some information or advice to exchange?
The power of coincidences and how we should pay attention to everyday occurances of such phenomena is discussed in ‘The Celestine Prophecy’ by James Redfield. Here is an extract from my notes:
“Have you ever had a hunch or intuition concerning a heart’s desire? Wondered how it might happen, then after forgetting, the opportunity suddenly presents itself through an unexpected meeting or from reading an article. These reoccurring coincidences seem more than mere chance, as if they are destined; as if we are guided by an unexplained force. Hence, nothing happens by chance, if you meet someone, it means you have unfinished business, some information to exchange. We are sensing again as in childhood, there is another side to life that we have yet to discover.
The manuscript predicts that once we reach a critical mass, the entire culture will begin to take coincidental experiences seriously and question in mass what mysterious process underlies life and then we will begin to seriously find out. Humans are now in a position to understand this phenomenon and understand the purpose behind life itself.”
Anyone experienced any weird coincidences, that made them question whether there is something operating behind the scenes?”
