Becoming a Universal Human with Gary Zukav

Becoming a Universal Human with Gary Zukav
May 03, 2022 by Ervin Laszlo
Change is a fundamental act, essential at every level of existence. For humans change is inevitable. Yet at a physical, emotional and spiritual level change requires effort; a personal decision to enact upon. To essentially evolve. What is the next step along that journey? Some say that path is ultimately creating a Universal Human. Acclaimed author and teacher Gary Zukav describes to Ervin what a Universal Human is, how the Universe IS conscious and how to draw essential power from love.

Higher Power Clarity and Guidance with Neale Donald Walsch

Higher Power Clarity and Guidance with Neale Donald Walsch
Apr 19, 2022 by Ervin Laszlo
Amongst people, there are many different religious beliefs but one common thought which is that there is a Higher Energy. A Higher Energy that connects what we know about ourselves, this Earth and the rest of the universe. Yet people are perplexed why this earth has problems with pain and suffering despite the belief in this Higher Energy. Spiritual messenger and author of "Conversations with God" Neal Donald Walsch sits with Ervin Laszlo to explore those discussions. Neal explains the "God Dilemma", embracing the eternal truth of interconnectedness, deciding between being a physical entity or spiritual entity and the answer God gave him when Neal asked "What does it take to make life work?".

Why we need nature with Jane Goodall

Why we need nature with Jane Goodall
Apr 04, 2022 by Ervin Laszlo
Just as the mind can't exist without a body, our bodies can't exist without an environment. Humankind has spread to every corner of the Earth through exploration and innovation. Yet our industrial systems are out of balance with nature. Modern lifestyles have many people feeling disconnected from the natural world. Legendary conservationist Dr Jane Goodall sits with Dr Ervin Laszlo to examine our current relationship with our planet and the mechanism to initiate an Upshift to better protecting and working with nature itself.

The Uses of Spirituality by Ervin Laszlo

The Uses of Spirituality by Ervin Laszlo
Apr 03, 2022 by Ervin Laszlo
For spiritual people, asking about the use of spirituality is almost like a sacrilege. Spirituality does not have “use”—it does not serve anything but itself.

Spirituality could of course serve an end which is not beyond, but within, the scope of the sacred, for ample deepening our communion with the divine, But spiritulity cod have an entirely mundane end as well, for example, deepening our well-being, our happiness, and our relations with others. Most people would recognized these ends as beneficial and valid. I argue in this blog that this is a non-negligible possibility that merits a second look.

Radically Shifting How We Think with Gregg Braden
Mar 22, 2022 by Ervin Laszlo
When we change our story from one of separateness to interconnectivity, a new way of thinking emerges. This new thinking impacts our constructs on economies, power, and interpersonal collaboration. Gregg Braden is an internationally renowned author and a pioneer bridging modern science, spirituality, and human potential. In this episode, he sits down with Ervin Laszlo to discuss the science, optimism, and realism of a new human story based upon seeing the universe as being alive, focusing on localized living, and how the pandemic has evolved our collective thinking for the need to Upshift.

EPISODE N. 12 | MARIANNE WILLIAMSON – Today we have the distinct honor of speaking with the author, political activist, spiritual advisor, and one time US Presidential candidate, Marianne Williamson. You can expect a dynamic conversation as Williamson is rarely one to mince words, nor has she ever been known to flinch at confronting life’s uncomfortable truths.

Our interview starts off with a discussion about the necessity to come to terms with an old paradigm as part of the process of entering a new paradigm— and how the “letting go” process is critical to our development as a society.

In the course of this we will examine the concept of reparations for past misdeeds of one group against another and how this might impact our spiritual well-being.

The Consciousness Revolution

The Consciousness Revolution
Mar 06, 2022 by Ervin Laszlo
There is not only a revolution in the way our consciousness works, see my blog You can change your mindset, there is also a revolution in our very understanding of the nature of consciousness. There is a new concept emerging at the cutting edge of science and philosophy, and this concept is very different from the old established concept.

EPISODE N. 11 | BRUCE H. LIPTON – Today we are joined for a dynamic conversation with the noted biologist Bruce Lipton whose ground breaking work on the connection between science and spirituality has made him an important voice in the fields of new biology and epigenetics. Dr. Lipton will discuss some of his thoughts on how thoughts and emotional experiences impact the human organism on a cellular level.

We will also consider the legacy of the human species’ tendency to regard itself as an entity outside of nature when it is imperative that we realize that we are nothing more than a part of the natural world, and that our connection to nature and the cosmos operates on a subatomic level. An understanding of this connection to each other and all of nature is in fact critical to our survival and the outbreak of COVID (like so many events in today’s current events) simultaneously serves as a symptom of our inability to come together as it creates new impediments.

While this may seem like a grim outlook, Bruce Lipton remains firmly positive and places a great deal of hope in our establishing a New Paradigm to see us through these troubling times.

Apologies in advance for the noise that we experienced on our co-host Fred Tsao’s line during the interview.

EPISODE N. 10 | GARRY JACOBS – Today’s discussion: Our world is entering what may be referred to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This is an era marked by technological advances which manufacture machines that are capable of outperforming human beings in a variety of activities and with the introduction of Artificial Intelligence (AI.), this will include “thinking”.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution was ushered in by the Third Industrial Revolution from which we are only now emerging and was characterized by a widespread dissemination of information—steam and electricity were the attributes of the First and Second Industrial Revolutions, respectively. As A.I. becomes more prevalent technology will continue to reshape and revolutionize human life, blurring the distinction between physical, digital, and biological systems and processes.

Could many of the problems that the world faces today—Social injustice, climate change, pandemics, and so forth—be the result of humankind using the tenets of an old paradigm in an arena where they no longer apply?

Feb 15, 2022 by Ervin Laszlo

EPISODE N. 9 | KINGSLEY DENNIS – Today’s discussion starts off with an investigation of storylines and narratives.

Are storylines a necessity for the human species, perhaps an element that is intrinsic to our DNA? What role do they serve in furthering our evolutionary progress to a new paradigm, and how often are they at odds with such progress? Do storylines have an expiration date at which they outlive their usefulness and then require a new narrative to take over?

Helping us to answer some of these questions we are joined by the renowned author, researcher, and futurist Kingsley Dennis. This deeply informative discussion moves on to explore such matters as the price of excessive individualism and the spirit of play.

EPISODE N. 8 | MICHAEL BECKWITH – In this episode, Ervin and Alison are joined by Michael Bernard Beckwith, Founder and Spiritual Director of the Agape International Spiritual Center.

Agape is a term from ancient Greek meaning “unconditional love” and since its founding in 1986, the Agape Center has pursued a mission of fostering a living environment for individuals to realize that they are unique emanations of God, the Love-Intelligence governing the Universe. Today Michael and our hosts discuss the distinction between our ego and the subtle voice of guiding consciousness, and how to navigate between the two.

From there, we also engage in a conversation about intentionality, the costs and benefits of new technology, and how to lead a meaningful life.

Change Your Mindset!

Change Your Mindset!
Feb 03, 2022 by Ervin Laszlo
In my last blog, “Evolution: The Force Is with Us” I wrote that there is a force in the universe that is active in you and in me, and is a great resource in our quest for a better life and a better world. I now want to add that while this force exists and is with us—indeed, it is in us—making use of it hinges on a crucial factor: the nature of your mindset.

In this Add Heart® Podcast episode, our guest Ervin Laszlo, Ph.D, a systems scientist, Nobel Peace Prize nominee, and founder-director of the Laszlo Institute of New Paradigm Research in Italy, joins our host Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., to talk about the critical importance of this time and the essential role of the heart for the future of humanity.

Ervin Laszlo, Ph.D, Founder-Director of the Laszlo Institute of New Paradigm Research For humanity to learn to get along with each other, it will require more heart. Despite the seemingly unsolvable separation and polarization between people and groups that we see, there is also an amplification of the collective heart throughout the planet. More people are realizing that we are all interconnected, and we need to help each other through increasing kindness and care. The omnipresent virus, climate change and extreme weather events, and an uncertain future are waking us up to our interdependence with each other and with nature.
