Global Shift (eBook)
Global Shift describes a major shift in consciousness that has emerged from the efforts of the many people working to solve the systemic problems plaguing our world today, such as climate change, poverty, and disease. Author Edmund Bourne presents a call to actions we can implement in our daily lives, such as voluntary simplicity, caring for our bodies, nonviolent communication, forgiveness, mindfulness, inclusive global thinking, and letting go. These actions can foster personal healing and bring our lives into alignment with the needs of the planet and a conscious universe.
A remarkable change is taking place that will profoundly influence the way we see ourselves and our world. The dominant materialistic, separatist worldview-a perspective that leads individuals to value their own needs over the good of the whole-is giving way to a humanitarian-spiritual orientation. This shift will revolutionize both the way humanity interacts on a global scale and how we live on a day-to-day basis.
Global Shift, co-published with the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), explores the roots of such current planetary crises as climate change, diminishing resources, poverty, and disease, and explains how a new convergence of scientific research and spiritual insight is propelling us toward a more enlightened future. It also presents a call to actions we can implement now, such as voluntary simplicity, nonviolent communication, caring for our bodies, and inclusive global thinking, that can foster personal healing and bring our lives into alignment with the needs of the planet and a conscious universe.
