Conscious Evolution: Awakening the Power of Our Social Potential
Occasionally in the course of history a new world view emerges to transform human society. It happened when the life of Jesus inspired the early disciples. It occurred in the Renaissance when the idea of progress through knowledge was born. It happened in the United States of America when the ideas of freedom & democracy were institutionalized, & again among the transcendentalists with the idea of the expression of the divine through the individual. Now, once again, a new world view is emerging. It is the idea of conscious evolution: the awareness that humans have gained the power to affect our own evolution, & therefore must quickly become capable of wise & ethical guidance of the process of evolution itself if humanity & life on Earth is to survive & fulfill its potential. The evolution of consciousness has been occurring for billions of years, but conscious evolution is radically new. Only in the last fifty years have we gained the scientific & technological powers to destroy our life-support system or, conversely, to transform this world. Our generation is the first in the history of humanity given the awesome power of co-creation. Conscious Evolution is a guide to the third millennium. It reveals the new story of creation & the emerging path of the co-creator--born out of a new spirituality, emerging as a self-actualizing person, developing new relationships & vocations. It carries us outward from the personal into the social potential movement, revealing a new community & society being born in our midst through the rise of social innovations & creativity everywhere. Out of the breakdowns in modern society, Conscious Evolution discovers breakthroughs & reveals that we are in the midst of a quantum change--an actual metamorphosis of humanity toward the next stage of our evolution. Conscious Evolution is a call to action for our generation to fulfill its creative potential. It provides tools & opportunities for each of us to fully participate in the greatest adventure in human history! This book is the seminal work of one of our most important life-long futurists.
