This new age flickers
Off the wings of a bee
The Queen arises judiciously
Sweeping clean the King’s polluted feet
Expressing the depths of Her darkness
The purpose of the Queen’s flight
Is to birth an illuminating light
Thus is the new King revealed to our sight
My wife and I will be interviewing author and what I would call a man who is interested in sparking the evolution of humankind, Charles Eisenstein. I’ve read three of his books, Sacred Economics, The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible, and The Ascent of Humanity.
Charles envisions this: By embracing our interconnectedness with all being on earth, we can change the world. Yes, we can have peace!
Charles is one of the seminal and pioneering storytellers of the new world. He explains how “fully embracing and practicing the principle of interconnectedness” will help us transcend our planetary crisis and have a positive influence on the world.. His latest book, The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible, serves as an empowering antidote to the cynicism, frustration, paralysis, and overwhelm so many of us are feeling. Charles reminds us that we are all connected, and our small, personal choices bear unsuspected transformational power.
Charles reveals how our culture’s guiding narrative of separation has generated our current crises. He shows us how we can change that narrative by telling the real-life stories of courage, kindness, and self-trust. He brings to conscious awareness a deep wisdom we all innately know: “Until we get selves in order, any action we take—no matter how good our intentions—will ultimately be wrongheaded and wronghearted.”
Joanna Macy, author of Active Hope says that he offers us “a rich feast for mind and heart.” Vicki Robin, author of Your Money or Your Life says, “He isn’t just describing a possible world. He is helping us find our way to it.” We are deeply honored to have this visionary guest with us to discuss how we can become more effective agents of change and have a stronger positive influence on the world.
PS: We have a copy of the book for the first person to call in during this live episode(646-652-2235).

I am driven to write
I simply can’t see straight
For I’ m driven to write
Or takes me seriously
Yet I am driven to write
Rewards, they say,
Increase the probability
Of behaving a certain way
Then why, dear B.S. Skinner
Do I continue to write
Regardless what you say?
Control of behavior
A tyrant’s greed
What of an inner urge
Not giving a rat’s ass
About theories presented by thee
that shall ultimately pass gas.
O; what a wonderfully powerful piece this is…..perhaps it still needs some work?

To educate is to unfold potential. It is a bringing forth of what is within. As Christ said in the “Gospel of Thomas:” “If you bring forth that which is within you, then that which is within you will save you. If you do not bring forth that which is within you then that which is within you will kill you.”
As we gaze upon a decimated landscape of pollution, what IS killing us? What in our troubled minds is doing this?
