I’m sure I didn’t do a good enough job yesterday of expressing how significant it was for Bernard, Christine, Melinda, and me to be sharing our last night together at a restaurant in Seattle and discovering that the restaurant carries a wine made by Bernard’s cousin in France. Not only that, but that the head chef and co-owner, Renee Erickson, knows Bernard’s cousin.

I try to make a point in my work, both with students at PSCS and those people who participate in my kindness classes, that so-called synchronicities like this carry meaning.

The label

I think the world is a very friendly place, that opportunities are regularly appearing for us. Our job is to clear out the clutter in order to see the opportunities and then take advantage of them in order to receive their benefits.

Along the way, we get messages like the one we got on Wednesday at The Whale Wins. It came at a very poignant time at the restaurant, too, when we were sharing with each other how we’d decided to get married and talking about how one solidifies commitments with one’s friends.

When we are open to receiving messages of this kind, this kind of experience takes care of things like commitments. They become self-evident.
