Quest Journals

 

Synchronicity appears in many forms in many ways throughout our day to day reality.  Whether we are conscious of them or not - they seemly sow the circumstances of reality together as an unseen yet ever present force! In a simple way - synchronicities to me are something I think about relative to us existing beyond the present moment. Often times a synchronicity will seem to transcend times - and rightfully so. Much like a ripple of the future meeting a ripple of the present… 

 

And so… this is just one of my stories. 

 

It was just past midnight on a Tuesday evening. I was on my way home from playing an awesome game of hockey. Like any hockey game I play, it was a well fought battle and further experience and opportunity for me to attune and apply my Jedi skills on the ice. I managed to set up a nice assist and we won 4-2 against one of the top teams. 

 

And so, following a good game I favoured some delicious vegetarian pizza to pick up on the way home. Now at this point everything is as per usual. I enter into Pizza Pizza. I let the guy working there know which slices I want. I choose to buy two with the intention to see how many days I can stretch them out over while also begin to practice some intermediate fasting; which is basically when you eat a meal over 8 hours, then no food for 16, but just drink cold water when you feel hungry. Doing so can do all sorts of interesting things and help you rewire your relationship between your brain and body. 

 

But speaking of pizza - he placed them in the oven then turned back and set me up to pay. I didn't have any cash so I proceeded to use the machine. But then… that's when… things got pretty unusual.

 

A minute goes by. My card has been neither accepted nor declined. 

A few more minutes go by…

 

I try pressing the cancel buttons on the machine pad. Nothing happens.

 

I talk to him about and tell him I am in no rush so its cool and I just laugh at how unusual this glitch is. 

 

At least 3 or 4 more mins has gone by. 

I am standing there - not having paid for my pizza that is now right in front of me. At the mercy of a machine. I remind the guy that its no big deal and that we'll figure it out. 

 

Finally the machine does a thing. It was unable to process. 

Alright I guess Ill try the chip. (Having originally just used the tap.)

 

I stick in my card, hoping for the best. 

 

Again…. exact same thing… the screen just hangs. Processing… attempting to connect. Trying to find its way across the vast interconnecting electronic networks that connect my card to his computer. 

 

I ask him if he could reset the computer maybe. 

He says he could but it would take like 15 minutes. The computers they have are running Windows XP. 

 

I laugh along with him. Just laughing at the fact that the computers in here are as old as the place itself probably. For all we know maybe the hard drivers are dying! I note out loud. 

 

Clock continues to tick by. We wait another few minutes. No one else is there. The one other fellow working with him is out on delivery. 

 

Finally - a beep from the machine. Decline. 

 

Alright so on to my visa I guess, right? Gotta keep trying. I can't leave without paying - even though both of us have already discussed the possibility of me just coming back and paying another day. Though of course I am concerned that perhaps his computer will be causing him problems with other peoples cards too. Hard to say… it was working fine until I got there…. weird. 

 

 

And so I tap my visa. Preparing for the inevitable. And just like that…. no surprises…

 

We wait again. This time maybe it was going by faster. Or maybe I was tired. Other then just joking about the circumstance I was keeping pretty quiet. 

 

Declined. 

 

Okay…. last change… lets try the chip on the visa! 

 

I do the thing. And then!

 

…. nothing. All over again. At this point hope seems lost. 

 

He tells me that if I just come back another day and pay that's okay. But just then… I remembered…. I had another bank card in my wallet! And so, just like that, we run through the whole return again. It's probably been maybe 20-30 minutes at this point. 

 

This time though things get weird. The machine stars beeping and wont even receive the card at all. Just flashes red at us with error messages of raging fire! 

 

But hold on… there was one more thing we hadn't tried yet. We did the tap. We did the chip… but we didn't do the swipe….

 

I knew I had to try. It was a long shot though. Hardly anyone uses the strip feature any more. And so, I give it a go with my visa. First time - doesn't work. Second time… doesn't work. Third time - I accidentally tap it and it reads that instead. Dang. We already tapped the visa. Oh well. I punch in my pin code once again. I step away from the machine. I laugh again with the guy and he states again that its okay if I just come back another day. I put my hand on my pizza and say something along the very specific lines of "Ya, looks like its never going to work. Oh well…" I had let go. I had accepted the destiny that was. And yet as I was literally saying that sentence - the machine makes a noise. A smily face appears on the display. 

 

Approved. 

 

What the ….

 

The guy working is just as relieved as I am. I grab the pizza and laugh some more while reflecting in my head about the incredibly peculiarness  that after all of that - after it not working and not working - it finally worked at the exact moment that I had let go. What I find incredibly interesting about this - is that I have seen this pattern before many times throughout my experience of reality. More or less the universe has a tendency to abruptly change course or remove a form of resistance as soon as we let go of our attachment to that situation or to the resistance itself. It's a lot like when you are looking for something and you spend awhile, then eventually you give up - and thats when you find them. That's essentially the same kinda event happening here but with pizza and a windows xp cash register. 

 

So in conclusion this synchronicity is one that I personally find hilarious and amusing. It reminded me of the importance of being able to adjust our relationships to resistance and even our own expectations. I think in one way it boils down to this idea that if we fine wholeness in the absence of something - like a partner or an item or a vision or a dream - then we will be more likely to receive those things when the time is right. And I am glad that It was the right time for me to get that pizza…

 

The end.

Thanks for reading my Quest Journal! I wanted to write this as a creative practice for myself. The topic may have seemed almost trivial, but even still, given the potency of the experience for me I wanted to be able to practice creating a story out of it. I hope this helps provide an example of ways you can create assignments for yourself to create Quest Journals out of stories in your day to day life that related to shifty themes and such. Quest Journals are here for us to practice creating, exploring our creativity abilities, and sharing our voice with a global audience.
