5.0 out of 5 stars A Potpourri of Endless Possibilities, September 27, 2014
Ervin Lazlo, among whose many books I have reviewed Dawn of the Akashic Age: New Consciousness, Quantum Resonance, and the Future of the World, opens the book with the observation that we are in a race with time and the cosmos is longing for us to show life and consciousness.
His foreword is followed by a short introduction from Miriam Knight, from whom I extract this quote:
” The revelations and personal shifts that people have described run the gamut from profound understandings of the nature of the forces underpinning the very fabric of physical reality, to the ability to visualize the interior of human bodies and having the capacity to change their molecular structure and create miraculous healings, to the ability to hear and even see beings in other dimensions, and convey their messages to friends, loved ones, and the world at large.”
In her own introduction, Julie Clayton observes that we are asleep to a lot of things in the world, but humankind is stirring into wakefulness – the contributors listed below are showing the way and making the point that the paths toward transformation are many.
The editors, who are world-class themselves, have leveraged thirty-seven other world-class figures to compile, for each, a tale, an insight, a message, and a bio. Most of these figures have published books, and all without exception have a website for further exploration.
I am new to the New Consciousness and New Thought movements, having spent the past ten years focused on Collective Intelligence and Group Wisdom. I am no longer skeptical about near death experiences and I am absolutely persuaded that consciousness and energy are the essence of everything and J D Messinger has nailed it in isolating the World of Form as false and the World of Light as the whole, see his book as linked below. It is in that context that I examine this book as a potpourri, a smorgasbord, of mentors and masters. Think of this as Conscious Awakening 101 and go from here.
