BEYOND FEAR AND RAGE

by Ervin Laszlo (Author, Editor)

The Messages conveyed in this Manifesto are by leading exponents of the new paradigm that comes to light at the cutting edge of contemporary science and lived spirituality. They are explorations and examples of the thinking we need to understand the nature of the problems and their possible solutions — and then finding the solution by ourselves. This kind of thinking could replace irrational fear and blind rage with deeper understanding and informed behavior. It could orient our aspirations, our values, and thus our steps. In these extraordinary times this is the kind of thinking we need — in our most urgent and best interest.

Table of Contents

We must find ways that allow our human intellects to commune with the highest energies in the universe to reach new levels of understanding that will result in effective solutions to current problems. The time for complacency is long past. The time for conventional thinking is also past. The time for compassion combined with radical thought is upon us. Radical thought alone is not going to achieve measureable results. We must include compassion that looks at the entire system of consciousness that has created our universe. It does not matter what political or religious or spiritual belief you hold. It does not matter if you are an atheist. There are universal laws and principles which govern all behavior and all creation. Humans are no exception. For lack of a better word, we might describe the fundamental law of the universe as the law of compassion. The law of compassion dictates that all beings have the right and desire to continue to exist and evolve in their highest form. At times the expression of this law is the transformation of the system of being to its next level of evolution. This is the kind of breakthrough-thinking that is required if we are to overcome the increasingly hysterical behavior that threatens our planet and the many significant accomplishments of human beings over the last two thousand years.

This book is a call to action. It is a compendium of inspirational messages by many of the thought leaders of our time and it offers meaningful direction for the dialogues that must take place if we are to overcome the fear and the rage of many layers of the population, and the blunders of those who have been entrusted with making choices in government, education, health, technology, economics, and social welfare — choices that will determine the future of wellbeing on this planet. We must find new ways to collaborate and communicate, so as to create a just, robust, flourishing system for all of us who are fortunate to be part of the expanding consciousness now manifesting on this planet.

William and Gayle Gladstone

Extraordinary conditions call for extraordinary responses. Fear and rage spreading among wide layers of the population is an extraordinary response, but it is a gut-response and not a good response. Rage leads to deepening confrontation and ultimately to violence, and fear allows confrontation to blossom without doing anything about it. One is active and the other passive, but they have the same end-result: the situation gets worse.

A good response is not a gut-response but an informed response. There are sources of information that do not call for a graduate degree in quantum physics and mathematical economics to access. The insights offered at the cutting edge of science are such information. They are simple and basic, even if the experiments and the reasoning that have led to them are complex. Likewise, the information conveyed by deep and lived spirituality are fundamental, and they are meaningful in themselves. Remarkably, and entirely significantly, these two sources of information convey the same, or at least an entirely compatible, insight. We are linked beyond the conventional limits of space and time, and we are one. Comporting ourselves in light of this insight is good for each of us and good for all of us. Acting in light of this insight is the informed response to the extraordinary conditions in which we find ourselves.

The Messages conveyed in this Manifesto are by leading exponents of the new paradigm at the cutting edge of contemporary science and lived spirituality. They are not dogmatic precepts, or even handy recipes for resolving one problem or another. They are explorations and examples of the thinking we need to understand the nature of the problems and their possible solutions—and then having the light and the motivation to find the solution by ourselves. This is the kind of thinking that can replace irrational fear and blind rage with deeper understanding and informed behavior. It can orient our aspirations, our values, and thus our steps. In these extraordinary times it is the kind of thinking we need—in our and in humankind’s most urgent self-interest.
