9780615541280: The Green Age: Transforming Your Life Choices for the 21st Century

There are hidden forces in our culture that affect the daily decisions we make—decisions that are detrimental to ourselves and to our planet. What are these forces? We are all trapped by the ingrained values and beliefs of our current gas guzzling, environment damaging way of life. The authors of The Green Age believe the time has come—or even passed—when we have to start considering some different ideas so that we can leave a livable world to future generations. Through examination and rejection of the unseen influences of the modern worldview the authors invite the reader to step into the future where speed, greed, endless growth and mindless consumption are not the rule. Through humorous and poignant personal stories the authors relate their own journeys to find the worldview of the Green Age. Developing insights that are spiritual, philosophical, scientific, and practical, the authors lead the readers to a holistic understanding of the interconnections within the material world from DNA to galaxies and butterflies to hurricanes. Further examination shows how closely we are related to all humankind both socially and genetically. This leads to a new Green Age ethical standard and primary purpose for living: to sustain the earth and its inhabitants. Do you want a life of fulfillment and personal satisfaction? Following the precept of Gandhi that, “we must be the change we wish to see,” the authors provide tools, guidance and exercises to help you make choices that will sustain your spirit as well as the planet. Beyond this the authors invite you to join them as agents of sustainable social change. They provide strategies for action so you too can become a Green Age pioneer of the future.
