Is Real Synchronicity when Self and God Become One?

What if God was an idea created to teach people how to reach their most inner and true Self? Our thoughts and beliefs about this would put our faith to the test and yet strengthen that same faith as well. If thoughts and beliefs shape our perception of reality, what happens if we pause belief in God and exchange it for belief in the Self using Pascal’s wager?


  • I wrote something in 2009. I read that something in 2020. Later that day what I’d read appeared in another form of media. I was aware of the connections. Chance or synchronicity? Let’s explore the topic of thoughts and beliefs shaping reality further.
  • The belief in God is stripped away and the idea of Self replaced to bring us deeper into the mystery of the mind.
  • Pascal’s wager is reimagined with the belief in Self instead of God.
