Re: Invincible, Interesting coincidences - Vipassana
Yes the most amazing synchronicities (all are amazing to me) big and small are occurring leading me to this and other aspects of the buddhist tradition. I read your post a month or so again on Vipissana and felt it was for me and resolved to consider it at some point in the near future. Since then I have had the most amazing dreams of it, and where I am shown exactly who I Am, in the outside world everyday it seems someone walks up to me and "recognizes me" they then show up in my dream and again show me "who I am" people are mentioning and asking me about it, I have basically had remninders from every source pointing me to it. After yoga class in shavasan I am quite often translated into a pavillion with 25 'others' who are meditating in a buddhist sense. The final sign before acting, occurred a few days ago when I was shopping with a friend, for 15-20 minutes or so before pulling up to the store I had been humming and singing the song "Go ask Alice" It was irritating and stuck in my head.
I was joking with my friend as we shopped and in the midst of a joke, I randomly pointed to a woman who was talking with a clerk. That woman turned to me and waved as if she had recognized me and motioned for me to wait until she finished with the clerk. I did not know who she was and was feeling embarassed. I was dreading her eventually turning to face me because it was just not coming to me who she might be, Turned out she did know me, her name was Alice!!! I had practiced yoga with her once a few months back and she was drawn to me for some reason we had an interesting conversation about her going to a monastery for a retreeat and also another retreat somewhere in Brazil to do a vipissana meditation course. She was stocking up and leaving shortly for her trip.
After talking to her I made the decision to register and know why I was meant To "Go ask Alice"!
