This Book is for those two thirds who answered "On Purpose", whether you know your purpose yet or not. If you believe that there are no coincidences, then you know that you - born around now, give or take fifty years - did not get here by some quirk. Instead, you are of the courageous who chose to arrive at the most dangerous and most exciting time the world has ever known. We are now at the time of The Shift from one worldview to another and each of us has a vital and unique role to play in that shift of humanity. It is not necessarily a role on the world stage, yet a role that naturally generates out of being wholly and uniquely ourselves ...uniquely me... uniquely you.
This book serves as a guideline to discover your purpose and role. It clarifies how you can fit into the overall scheme of things and it tells how to train yourself to be fully and completely yourself without the pretense and the act. It is a book about how to become extraordinary, no matter how ordinary you might feel inside or how ordinary the mirror lies that you are. This may be the book you have been looking for, especially in the quiet of the night, when you awaken and wonder what it's all about. And it will transform the resignation of "I'm just a single human being and what can one person do?"
It is a book about you and your greatness. At the same time...and more importantly... Barbara Marx Hubbard's book is about more than you as a walking ego, a mental-mind. It's about YOU in the largest sense, where the YOU is the entire world.Read more ›
So we need a solution as chaos approaches. Marx Hubbard offers one: Conscious Evolution. But I can't help wondering, is this solution realistic, or even possible?
The truth is I'm a bit skeptical. We have tried "conscious evolution" before. It was called the Enlightenment. It's true lots of good things came of it, such as the American democratic system of government, which--despite its flaws--was truly a radical and beautiful experiment offering the average person unprecedented rights and freedoms. But of course, not all has ended well post-enlightenment or without serious problems (the effect of America's expansion on Native Americans immediately comes to mind among other issues). So while I embrace and celebrate the greater consciousness that is coming and happening as I write these words and the positive change that are and will come from it, I'm less optimistic than Marx Hubbard about "utopian" visions.
That said, Birth 2012 offers an appealing and wished-for vision, one that likely can guide us to a better tomorrow; I'm just not counting on it all unfoldig the way she presents.
I tend to be more inspired by books or stories of individuals, such as ...Read more ›
