    Quantum Physics Meets Eastern Philosophy, August 23, 1998
    By A Customer
    This review is from: The Tao of Psychology: Synchronicity and Self (Paperback)

    Quantum physics has defined a basic unit of matter that makes up all things, both organic and inorganic, which is pure energy. The same unit of energy that is a part of your body today may, only days before, have been a part of a bird flying over Beijing or an Ethiopian villager. This “new” knowledge from modern physics sounds very much like the Tao–in Eastern phillosophies, the “unifying principle in the universe to which everything in the world relates.” The tao (lowercase) is the life path that is in harmony with the universe, the “path with heart.” Jung believed that all people and all animate and inanimate objects are linked through a collective unconscious. Synchronicity, he said, was a connecting principle that manifests through “meaningful coincidences.” Bolen proposes that synchronicity is the Tao of psychology; it relates the individual to the totality. She makes good use of anecdotes to explain Jung’s layers of consciousness, the Jungian analytical tools of amplification and active imagination, and the difference between causality and synchronicity. Bolen has a gift for making clear Jungian concepts that seem obtuse or hazy in the hands of other writers.

    THIS IS NO COINCIDENCE, January 12, 2001
    By 
    BPG (www.theWORDproject.com) –

    This review is from: The Tao of Psychology: Synchronicity and Self (Paperback)

    Just as synchronicity brings meaningful events together, this book unites some very meaningful topics: coincidences, psychology, Jung, Taoism and the I Ching. Dr Bolen weaves these phenomena together in a highly readable format. If you’ve ever believed that there is more to coincidences than meets the eye, then reading this book is perhaps the next meaningful coincidence awaiting your life.

    This book proved to be very interesting. Easy to read and understand, helps one to understand the connection we share between others. I was having a telepathic experience and wanted to gain a better understand of what it involved. This book gave clarity to many of my questions.
