Description

In a time of social and ecological crisis, what can we as individuals do to make the world a better place? This inspirational and thought-provoking book serves as an empowering antidote to the cynicism, frustration, paralysis, and overwhelm so many of us are feeling, replacing it with a grounding reminder of what's true: we are all connected, and our small, personal choices bear unsuspected transformational power. By fully embracing and practicing this principle of interconnectedness - called interbeing - we become more effective agents of change and have a stronger positive influence on the world.

Throughout the book, Eisenstein relates real-life stories showing how small, individual acts of courage, kindness, and self-trust can change our culture's guiding narrative of separation, which, he shows, has generated the present planetary crisis. He brings to conscious awareness a deep wisdom we all innately know: until we get ourselves in order, any action we take - no matter how good our intentions - will ultimately be wrongheaded and wronghearted. Above all, Eisenstein invites us to embrace a radically different understanding of cause and effect, sounding a clarion call to surrender our old worldview of separation, so that we can finally create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

With chapters covering separation, interbeing, despair, hope, pain, pleasure, consciousness, and many more, the book invites us to let the old Story of Separation fall away so that we can stand firmly in a Story of Interbeing.

Critiques

"This is a revolutionary and interactive book - in the sense that it inspires the reader to think out of the ordinary. Eisenstein will be noted in antiquity as one of the seminal and pioneering storytellers of this new world." ( Publishers Weekly Starred Review)
"When I read Charles Eisenstein I felt as if I had just put on an extraordinarily clear, lucid, morally honest set of glasses. I see my outer and inner worlds in penetrating detail. He isn't just describing a possible world. He is helping us find our way to it." (Vicki Robin, author of Your Money or Your Life)
"A powerful pick for any who would combine spiritual perspectives with social change. This book thwarts cynicism and offers keys to connecting personal choices to powerful change. ... An uplifting, inspirational, spiritual and social examination recommended for a wide range of readers looking for positive encouragement." ( Midwest Book Review)

Excellent concepts; narration detracts a bit

Charles Eisentstein presents some excellent concepts for how to address the serious ecological challenges ahead. He makes essential connections between problems humans have wrought on the natural world and those we face in society and our personal lives. I wish there had been as much on solutions as on describing the problems. Other than that, I'm glad to have listened to it and I learned some good things new to me.

Paul Geiger's narration often sounded as if he were a machine. It almost got in the way of my hearing this book since a machine voice is completely opposite to Charles Eisenstein's message. I wish I could have heard this book in the author's own voice.

A phenomenal book offering hope

This is perhaps the wisest and most hopeful book I have read in my lifetime, and I have read many. In his wisdom, the author doesn't claim to be right, he claims only to be pointing in the direction of an understanding that can free us from the painful experiences of separation, lack, and entity that plague us. Read it with an open mind and heart. Notice what it wakes up in you and celebrate the unfolding.

The Most Important Work of our Lifetimes

When I first read this book, I felt as if Eisenstein had written the book that had been floating around in my head for the last several years. In this work, the author draws on the totality of knowledge that has been gathered by humans over the course in history and his previous, lofty works to answer the all-important questions: "How did we get to where we are as a species?" "What needs to change in order to change the course of humanity and the planet?" "What can I do about this nagging feeling that something is wrong here?" and "How can one solitary human make a difference in this out-of-control world?"

Charles argues that the negative direction that this planet and our species is heading can be traced back to one root cause: the stories that we live by that we use to answer the questions "why am I here?" "who are we as a species?" and "what is the right way to live?" I picked this up right after finishing David Korten's "Change the Story, Change the Future," and this work illuminates both the current story we are living by and the one that we need to inhabit in order to change the course of human history.

Read this immediately and begin standing in a new story of humanity.

This book will change your life

Listening to this book felt almost like remembering some forgotten dream; almost as if I were listening to a version of myself from the future, where I had become a more badass and mature version of myself.

Boo-yah!

Great, important book. Read it yourself.

The content of Tthis book Is so mind expanding and so important. Sadly, the performance is subpar. Many words are mispronounced, the delivery is robotic...

Tolles Buch mit Fantasie-Chinesisch

Wunderbares Buch, ordentliche Hörbuchfassung, mit nur einem winzigen Schönheitsfehler: Bei einem Thema, das so oft auf fernöstliche Philosophie rekurriert, und in Anbetracht von Eisensteins eigener Beherrschung des Chinesischen, hätte man den Sprecher als dessen Alter Ego zumindest vorab angemessen instruieren können. Das hätte den Hörern aussprachliche Blüten wie "Quiegong" oder "Lausuh" erspart, die diese dann womöglich noch für korrekt halten.
