Metaphysical meaning of Syntyche (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Syntyche (mbd)
Syntyche, syn'-ty-che (Gk.)--to meet; come in contact; accident; fortunate; chance; fate.

A Christian woman at Philippi. Paul exhorts her and Euodia "to be of the same mind in the Lord" (Phil. 4:2).

Meta. Euodia signifies aspiration, the soul's aspiring after that which is spiritual and good. Syntyche (fortunate, accident, fate) is a phase of the soul that is in close touch with the Euodia state of thought, which is aspiring after the highest and best but has not yet become fully awakened to the fact that everything comes about according to divine law, that we all make our own fate, and that nothing just "happens."
