Inhaltsangabe

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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

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.
