Into the Wider Dream: Synchronicity in the Witness Box
It is probably true to say that all world religions believe that life-changing meaningful coincidences, or synchronicities, are signs that "the Will of God" is being worked out in our lives. There is deep meaning here, and the long synchronistic episodes described in this book will help us explore some of it. Our group's conversations with the spirit of the Martyr Stephen, were surrounded with multiple synchronicities with several themes from the Book of Revelation, "dead and not-dead", "philosopher's stone", "the five wounds of Jesus" and many more. The stream of synchronicities continued for many years, and gave us personal experience of the truth of what Stephen happened to be teaching at the time. It compelled us to ask, "Are we and these events being dreamed up by a Mind that encloses all of us? Does this Mind dream ourselves up, as well as these strange coincidences?" That theory made some sort of sense, and that is why I name this book, Into the Wider Dream. Some people might argue that it can also help to enrich our understanding of what it means to be "In Christ."
