The book is an exquisitely thought-out and remarkably comprehensive integration of his own theories built on foundations of the solid work of other thinkers around issues of sustainability. While tackling issues like brain science in a way that is digestible, and looking at a continuum of levels from the concrete physical and social/communiity to the spiritual and world/kosmocentric, Dr. Bougsty sets a goal and heads for it, carrying his reader along.
I personally enjoyed his discussions of the world economy, and personal to world peace-making the most, perhaps because the first is least familiar to me, and the second feels most mystifying in our current polarized cultural environment. Dr. Bougsty's book is a practical primer, a workbook, and a theoretical treatise with examples and stories. It calls the reader forward. And it is very worthy of notice.
His premise is that we have to change the multitude of pieces, the interacting parts, and even the paradigm of how to live on earth in order to save ourselves and the planet from the destructive spiral we are on. He proposes a new global ethical system from which to measure our decisions about health and sustainability.
Since everything on this planet is interconnected, there are many helpful diagrams to simplify the complex ideas and myriad of interactions. Dr. Bougsty pulls it off – helping us navigate a systematic path to transform ourselves and the world to create a healthy sustainable future!
It is both practicable and theoretical, expanding awareness and potential.
He writes about things not normally included in a self-help book, including a challenging look at our economy. If we simply adapt to the culture around us we will be sick, for our cultures and global systems aren’t well. We are challenged to open our eyes and make active choices, resisting the current, to rise to a flow of life that evolves to new levels.
Dr. Bougsty provides treatment and analysis of the deep, seemingly intractable systemic causes that brought us to the local-to-global precipices at which we find ourselves. But instead of succumbing to fatalism in the darkness, his luminous thought sketches realistic paths forward to populate programs of action for individuals, as well as a coalescing orientation for wider social movements to emerge in pursuit of the radical change the world so desperately needs. This is the rare book that stands as an indispensable read both for those who feel overwhelmed about their own lives and those who feel profound despair at the volatile state of the world—and, in fact, shows that addressing either of these aspects is inextricably bound up in understanding and acting in accordance with a common set of evolutionary processes. This book is a response to urgent times and is an essential read for any who seek generous and perspicacious proposals for how to navigate this terrifying-exhilarating conjuncture of history in which we find ourselves.
