Daniel Quinn: The Great Forgetting (Excerpted from the book, The Story of B) With every audience and every individual, I have to begin by making them see that the cultural self-awareness we inherit from our parents and pass on to our children is squarely and solidly built on a Great Forgetting that occurred in our culture worldwide during the formative millennia of our civilization. What happened during those formative millennia of our civilization? Are You Experiencing Synchronicity? Though some would say the probability of one of these events is very low, for many people synchronicity happens all of the time. It is a magical phenomenon that lets us know we are open to spiritual guidance and on the right path. So, are you experiencing synchronicity? Here are a few common examples that may have happened in your life: 1.
