I liked Bonnie Bright´s comments about this book, in particular:
"Tarnas stresses that Jung held the belief that synchronicities served a similar function to dreams and psychological symptoms that essentially served to counteract the one-sidedness of the psyche and turn the person toward the unconscious and therefore toward greater wholeness—that is, individuation. In other words, we can benefit from a synchronistic event by allowing it to challenge and redirect our own conscious attitude".
But what follows immediately afterwards:
" By observing more of the aliveness and autonomy of the world around us, we begin to allow synchronicities to occur ".
is not a necessary nor a sufficient condition for synchronicities to happen, IMHO.
