Coaching - increasing the capability to act

“You can't connect the dots looking forward; 
you can only connect them looking backwards. 
So you have to trust that 
the dots will somehow connect in your future.”

The training to ‘connect the dots’, as Steve Jobs said,   
consists in being IN, aware of self – in&out – 
and this is the very meaning of being in a coaching relationship.

As for the ”collective intelligence” and ”correlated system” 
for synchronicity as a tool to (be - sic!) noticing  
the way dots are drawing,
I will rather follow Teilhard du Chardin 
naming it LE MILIEU DIVIN :)
And I will try a translation from Romanian: 
”The charm of Divine Medium is to be more 
and more intens within ourselves.”, 
and further ”to be part of it is to be at full extent of your own.”

The more presence, the more extension 
and chance for noticing synchronicity - as stated by Jung
"In a person's life, synchronicity served a role 
similar to that of dreams, with the purpose of 
shifting a person's egocentric conscious thinking 
to greater wholeness."
What for?!
Well, as the most quoted friend of Niels Bohr said, 
”God is not playing dice”.
(and lets highlight that Einstein was also closed to Jung)

So, as du Chardin said - ”acting is increasing the capability to love”,
I would say coaching is increasing the capability to act.
