I was at a family Bar Mitzvah. A good friend of mine was there who I hadn't seen in a while. We went to the washroom together where it would be quiet to catch up. The washroom was small, only three or four stalls. We were talking, catching up. When we came out of the stalls, we continued our conversation while washing our hands.
My friend asked, "How is Lisa doing?" Lisa is my daughter who lived in Toronto, and at the time had just moved to NYC. I said, "Lisa is doing great! She had a terrific interview with a young woman from a New York company. Anyway, she was hired and within 10 days, sold the condo, the car, packed up and moved there. She is living her dream in New York. She loves, loves her boss, the city, the whole thing."
My friend said, "Wow! That's amazing. I am so happy for her."
We were not aware that a young woman had walked into the room when we were in the stalls, and so we hadn't realized anyone was in the room with us.
Suddenly a stall opened and this woman walked out. She came over to the sinks as we were finishing up and looked at me. "Is your daughter Lisa's last name K----?", she inquired.
Of course the two of us were a bit surprised and thought it funny that she knew my daughter......until she offered, "Well, I am Lisa's boss!"
What are the chances?? Lisa's boss from New York? At the same affair in Montreal?
And in the bathroom with us ? Behind the door? Listening to me talk about her??
Her fiancee works at the New York office of the company owned by the Bar Mitzvah boy's father. That's how she ended up in Montreal at this affair.
The lesson of this synchronicity? Careful what you say because you NEVER know who may be listening!!
In anthropology, woman corresponds to the passive principle of
nature. She has three basic aspects: first, as a siren, lamia or monstrous being who
enchants, diverts and entices men away from the path of evolution; second, as the
mother, or Magna mater (the motherland, the city or mother-nature) related in
turn to the formless aspect of the waters and of the unconscious; and third, as the
unknown damsel, the beloved or the anima in Jungian psychology. In his Symbols
of Transformation, Jung maintains that the ancients saw Woman as either Eve,
Helen, Sophia or Mary (corresponding to the impulsive, the emotional, the intellectual, and the moral) (33). One of the purest and all-embracing archetypes of
Woman as anima is Beatrice in Dante’s Commedia (32). All allegories based upon
the personification of Woman invariably retain all the implications of the three
basic aspects mentioned above. Of great interest are those symbols in which the
Woman appears in association with the figure of an animal—for example, the
swan-woman in Celtic and Germanic mythology, related to the woman with the
hoof of a goat in Hispanic folklore. In both cases the woman disappears once her
maternal mission has been completed and, similarly, the virgin qua virgin ‘dies’ in order to give way to the matron (31). In iconography it is common to find parts
of the female figure combined with that of a lion. The Egyptian goddess Sekhmet,
characterized by her destructiveness, had the body of a woman and the head (and
therefore the mind) of a lion. Conversely, a figure with a lion’s body and a
woman’s head appears in the Hieroglyphica of Valeriano as an emblem of the
hetaira (39). The inclusion of feminine, morphological elements in the composition of traditional symbols such as the sphinx always alludes to a background of
nature overlaid with the projection of a concept or of an entire complex of cosmic
intuitions. In consequence, the Woman is an archetypal image of great complexity
in which the decisive factor may be the superimposed symbolic aspects—for
example, the superior aspects of Woman as Sophia or Mary determine her function as a personification of science or of supreme virtue; and when presented as
an image of the anima, she is superior to the man because she is a reflection of the
loftiest and purest qualities of the man. In her baser forms as Eve or as Helen—
the instinctive and emotional aspects—Woman is on a lower level than the man.
It is here, perhaps, that she appears at her most characteristic—a temptress, the
Ewig Weibliche, who drags everything down with her, and a symbol comparable
with the volatile principle in alchemy, signifying all that is transitory, inconsistent, unfaithful and dissembling. See also The Loved One and Sophia.
