Excerpt: “The Beginning of All Beginnings”


From the chapter entitled “The Gospel of the Universe”

In this excerpt, the Sage and Seeker have been talking about how human beings are meaning-making, story-loving creatures, and how deeply the Seeker’s stories affect his attitudes and way of being in the world.

The Sage has used the example of the stories the Seeker tells himself regarding his daughter’s education—pointing out how these stories are reflected in the larger story of society—and then offers the Seeker a new version of this larger story.
