Favorite Sayings about  
Flow and Synchronicity

Do you have the patience to wait
Till the mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving
Till the right action arises by itself?

Tao Te Ching

For anything to happen, the entire universe must coincide.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (I Am That, p. 388)

Everything happens for you, not to you.

Byron Katie

I used to have a two-word spiritual vocabulary: Yes and Thanks.
Lately, I've added two more: God Bless.
And that seems to cover just about everything.

Ann Medlock, Founder, Giraffe Project
(Power of Flow, p. 204)

Living in relationship to everything and everyone, that’s the greatest practice that will open synchronicity. Being totally inclusive. Anything that happens, you relate to it -- if your three-year-old comes in and says something, if a rock comes in the window. A relationship to me means you’re not judgmental.
You're not removing yourself. You’re vulnerable.
You’re exposing yourself to the universe. There’s no distance.

Rick Jarow
Author, Creating the Work You Love

The waters of life are thundering over the rocks of objects -- desirable or hateful.
Remove the rocks by insight and detachment and the same waters will
flow deep and silent and swift, in greater volume and with greater power.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (I Am That, p. 250)

Life is offered as a means of self-expression,
only giving us what we seek when we listen to the heart.

Buddhist Teacher

It is only when the mind is still, tranquil, not seeking any solution, any answer,
neither resisting nor avoiding, that it is capable of
receiving what is true, that which is eternal, timeless,
immeasurable.  You cannot go to it, it comes to you;
what liberates is the truth, not your  effort to be free. 
Be still.  Let life flow.

Ramesh Balsekar, Let Life Flow

Synchronicity is a Godcidence....a coincidence with God as the
originator. When we see the will of God & live with it, we experience
life's truth from the Grand Flow Master.

It is only with the heart that we can see truly:
All that is essential is invisible to the eye.

Francois de St Exupery, The Little Prince
(Contributed by Dina Benevol)

There is one common flow, one common breathing,
all things are in sympathy. The whole organism and each one
of its parts are working in conjunction for the same purpose...
the great principle extends to the extremest part, and from
the extremest part it returns to the great principle, to the
one nature, being and not-being.

Chains of more-than-coincidence occur so often in my life that, if I am
forbidden to call them supernatural hauntings, let me call them a habit. Not
that I like the word 'supernatural'; I find these happenings natural enough,
though superlatively unscientific.

Robert Graves, The White Goddess
(Contributed by Ian Edgar)

Love is an Action; not an intention nor feeling. It is in
'the doing', and not 'the feeling of,' that Love, and therefore,
Life & Living, is created.

Acceptance is the cornerstone of fulfillment; with
acceptance, all is conquered.

Contributed by Sean Dunne

Intimacy is the sight of perfection.

Contributed by Wilhelm Horrix

Coincidences are the pen names of grace for those who wouldn't recognize it otherwise.

-Chris Marker
