A pithy contribution in a day or two ago from Inside Edge
“Conscious evolution comes in – an alternative to mass extinction”.
SPONTANEOUS EVOLUTION: OUR POSITIVE FUTURE AND A WAY TO GET THERE FROM HERE
Our world seems to be gripped by chaos, confusion, polarization … and … what if all of these were a precursor (or as we prefer calling it, a “pre-blesser”) to humanity’s evolution to conscious co-creators of our world?
Our friends at the Inside Edge have invited Bruce Lipton and Steve BaerI to speak about their book, Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here – a book Deepak Chopra and Thom Hartmann called “world changing.”
When the book was written fifteen years ago “spontaneous evolution” was a noun in the future. We now recognize it as a “verb in the present”, as both crisis and opportunity are “in our face.”
The toxic polarization that dominates our political discourse is due to two obsolete and “obsolethal” (obsolete AND deadly) paradigms – patriarchal religion and “godless” science – fighting it out to see which dominates. The good news is, there is a new holistic paradigm emerging that will take us off the old battlefield of dominate-or-be-dominated, and put us on a new playing field of collaboration, cooperation and community.
If this sounds a bit like “heaven on earth”, that’s exactly right. 50 years ago Buckminster Fuller wrote a book called Utopia or Oblivion, about the choice we face at this moment. Our technology has had such an impact on the natural world, that unless love and functionality prevail, humanity will weave itself outside the web of life. That’s where conscious evolution comes in – an alternative to mass extinction”.
