I tried to explain the difference between same routine followed by a mystic before and after awakening. Meditativeness or mindfulness in performing one’s duty/responsibility towards near ones and society leads to such transformation. Call it consciousness or REALITY or God or Love or Emptiness or Tao but the experience is same.
Synchronicity is first step towards enlightenment. It is tried to explain that it happens on its own. It is called as Wu-Wei-Wu by Lao Tzu. There are basically four steps but the first is experienced but recognised later. So there are only two recognisable steps of experience during which it is happening. However it is absurd to say but actually there is no one who recognises but in word it can be expressed like this only. The experience is such cannot be expressed in words.
