"A pure note of positive possibility for our common future...it offers the kind of spiritual depth needed for the times ahead." -Paul H. Ray, PhD, co-author of The Cultural Creatives
From the Inside Flap
The Universal Human is connected through the heart to the whole of life, evolving consciously and helping to cocreate a new world to live in, says Hubbard. She shows us a completely new kind of spiritual path, something weve never experienced before, but which is perfect for our time.
Emergence lays out the blueprints for birthing this new kind of human, explaining all the steps in what Hubbard calls an intimate and practical process for all who wish to make the transition to the next stage of evolution.
Join Hubbard on the unprecedented journey form ego to essence, from ordinary human seeking creature comforts to extraordinary human cocreating the future. Master the ten steps that will take us through the Infancy, Childhood, and Youth stages of the global transitions to our emergence as the Universal Human. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

She believes that humans today are undergoing the process of �emerging� from what we�ve been to beings capable of co-creating �a new world that is sustainable, compassionate, and life-enhancing.� Our present generation has the technological ability to destroy the world, or to consciously evolve in ways that are �magnificent beyond imaginings.�
She has divided her book into two parts. The first section compares the process of emerging to physical birth�gestation, infancy, childhood, youth, and mature adult. She also discusses why this particular generation is the �cross-over� generation between human development to date and the Universal Human, and outlines the challenges we face in making the transition.
The longer second section is a guidebook to emergence. In it, Hubbard interweaves the story of her own emergence with meditations, spiritual practices, and encouragement. She describes ten key steps, beginning with creating an inner sanctuary. All the steps depend on knowing and listening to the �Essential Self.�
Hubbard emphasizes that change is necessary if we are to survive, because �the very behaviors that kept us alive in prior times are the behaviors that are threatening to end our lives today.� She says we have the ability to change and develop the consciousness we need to meet the challenges ahead.
Emergence is essential reading for all those desiring to consciously evolve and develop their full potential as extraordinary beings.
I used her meditations in the Guide to Emergence section though quickly found myself on my own adventure. I was in the den on the couch when a huge white ball of cloud-like cotton came in and sat down. She brought three corners of me into the room, Mind, Emotions and the Physical Body. It was if she was leading a meeting. She called forth old wounds, old habits, old thought structures and pulled us altogether into her. She gathered guilt, envy, lack, abandonment and every other unnecessary emotion and pulled them into her. She was pure love.
The next day I continued the book and once again went on my own adventure. This time the cotton ball (who I now called Essie) came in and had a stern chat with mind/ego. She told it that it would be used for service, but was not going to lead the life anymore. It was to take a backseat to her and learn to be silent unless called upon.
I didn't realize the shift until the next day. I bumped my head on an open cupboard and the voice that would've said, "What an idiot," now said, "Be careful of me" with the greatest amount of love. Then it was quiet. The chatter had stopped and I began listening in to deep thoughts of a higher vibration. I'd always had deep thoughts, but this book put the chatter away and allowed Essie to run my show, my inner dialogue and my life. Things have been so easy since I read this in 2006. I certainly allow the ego out to stretch her muscles and yell her injustices (usually at the TV), but I observe, smile at my wonderful humanness and then put her in the backseat again. I can't say enough thanks to the absolute change this book brought me.
To do the work Hubbard recommends, however, does require at least a passing familiarity with one's own internal life: whether through moments of awe, flow or quiet. So I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who hasn't at least once had a non-drug induced feeling of beautiful peace that they wished would last forever.
