Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This is a fascinating and involving study of the cosmic, karmic and etheric dimensions of politics, world affairs and current events. Drawing from the great spiritual traditions, practices and practitioners, McLaughlin and Davidson, cofounders of the New Synthesis Think Tank and the Sirius Ecological Community, meticulously present the role of metaphysics in the political realm. Looking to ancient wisdom for answers to today's social, economic and environmental ills, they offer a new paradigm of transformational politics: making the political personal through spiritual practice and using this transformational paradigm to change the world from the inside out. ("We must transform ourselves if we intend to transform the world.") In uniting politics with spirituality, the authors describe their concept of the Divine (including reincarnation and a transhuman "Invisible Government" of spiritual guides) in the solemn tone of scholarly reportage. Information-intensive and chock full of empowering suggestions, intriguing stories and uplifting examples of how individuals and groups can make an impact, this thought-provoking assemblage is an enriching, mind-opening book for seekers of spiritual wisdom and political solutions.

From Booklist

Knowledgeable and pragmatic, these academic scholar-authors charge American culture with emphasizing the wrong things, and they offer, instead, the spiritual guidance of "the Ageless Wisdom" of Eastern religions, historied secret societies, and New Age approaches from around the world. They make good use of their material, which ranges from real-life stories to modern-day physics; they link esoteric doctrines to practical political practices. Their approach is stimulating, yet their critique and solutions have foundations some readers will question. The synthesis they seek includes a large dose of mysticism, ranging from universally shared, God-imminent, existence to direct links between body parts and spiritual properties. A tantalizing argument for restructuring American public and private life that should appeal to a variety of reformers. Virginia Dwyer

I am finding this to be a very rich and learned reference work with so much to teach. I am widely read in the field of Eastern and Western spirituality and philosophy, yest this is one book that I've gained new knowledge and insights from. It stands head and shoulders above 95% of the other books of this genre, reflecting the authors' extensive knowledge including some interesting insights into lesser-known belief systems. The books includes an excellent index and bibliography. The writing and layout is if the highest quality which makes this book very readable indeed. This is one book I will not be letting go of!

This is a highly unusual look at world politics that is both quite down to earth and highly metaphysical at times. It looks at the political landscape from a point of view of personal responsibility and individual place in the "body politic" but also provides insight into each nation's "personality" and role in world politics. Its a fascinating, curious and sometimes macabre view into world politics.
