Coming generations will learn equality from poverty, and love from woes.

At the most troubling times strange things happen. I knew a flip was on the way. I felt it! The super moon affirms it. Yet, the continuity and mathematical perfection of the dance of the earth and the moon, do leave a way to contingency. Made hopeful, I was reminded of this today.

Times like these I turn to poets, philosophy, and depth psychology. A mental triangular thought of three words guided me. The last few weeks causality, teleology and synchronicity moved me.

I try to remember the powers of these principles as meaning something special in my life, and as I see the possibilities, as special happenings, in the lives of others.

Today while giving blood to the vampires at Kaiser, my eyes fell upon a father and his son. He had his, under a year, child spread out ready for a fast diaper change. I said, “How lucky you are!” He smiled and tickled the belly of his son.

The child was looking in the opposite direction.  “Hello there,”  I said.

The child turned to me with a big smile. A hello that would make the whole world rejoice. No teeth and giggling with the power of the cosmos glowing in his being.

I was deeply touched .

“Oh, how lovely. You have made my day… thank you!”

As I walked away from the hospital, I knew that the principle of contingency zeroed in on me in a cosmic moment.

A bowing to my hidden psyche, and a bowing back to the child of the cosmos !

We will be OK !!
