When not buried by directed thought

Or smothered by strong emotion,
The true self, the psychic self, the chaos self
Is allowed to flourish.

During my hectic post graduate days
Every Wednesday after teaching an afternoon class
I’d share a liter of wine and dinner with a friend
At the Casa Blanca Restaurant in San Diego.
One Wednesday my friend was going
To San Francisco with his girl friend
And thus, would be unable to share dinner with me.
After class, I got into my car and proceeded toward Casa Blanca
Only to realize that it didn’t seem right to eat there
Without my friend.
I had a couple of hours before my next scheduled appointment
And was just driving aimlessly in the San Diego heights.
I figured maybe I should eat and started looking for a restaurant.
I noted a Bob’s Big Boy and decided that that would do.
I parked, entered the restaurant and was browsing the paper book rack
When in walks my friend with his girl friend.
I said, “About time you got here, let’s eat.”
Neither my friend, his girl friend or I
Had been at this restaurant before.
Something had come up, so, their trip to San Francisco
Had been cancelled.
They, too, had been driving about aimlessly
And had decided to stop and eat.

Most people in the United States
Would call this experience coincidence.
Let’s take off our cultural blinders
And allow this experience to be an example of
The flourishing of the true self, the psychic self, the chaos self.

With cultural blinders off,
Experiences like this one abound.
We decide to call a friend
Only to have the phone ring
And it’s the very friend we were going to call.
We’re at a restaurant, beach or bar
And meet a friend we haven’t seen in years
Or someone from our hometown.

In my teens,
I worked part time in a small fish market
On east 82nd Avenue in Portland, Oregon.
This story was mentioned in greater detail
In the previous chapter.
A research study of the clustering behavior
That occurs at small businesses should
By statistical analysis
Demonstrate that like attracts like
In the psychic world.
I’d be very interested in the results of such a study
Should anyone undertake it.

Einstein greatly expanded the world view
Of the Newtonian Universe.
Research into the true self, the psychic self, the chaos self,
The force that accounts for the like attracts like described here
Should greatly expand the world view
Described by Einstein.
