Awakening the Power of Our Social Potential
Author: Barbara Marx Hubbard
Publisher: New World Library
View: 1686Outlining the new worldview of conscious evolution, futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard has written a call to action for our current generation to fulfill its creative potential. She defines conscious evolution as “the awareness that humans have gained the power to affect our own evolution,” and she asserts that we must quickly become capable of wise and ethical guidance of evolution itself, if life on earth is to survive. Only in the last fifty years have we gained the scientific and technological power to destroy or enhance the planet's life-support system. Our generation has the ability to abuse or conserve these powers — to act, in a way, as “co-creator.” Conscious Evolution reveals the “path of the co-creator” — born out of these powers and society's new spirituality — and discusses the tools and opportunities that each of us has to fully participate in this exciting stage in history.
