Jan 18, 2022 by Ervin Laszlo

EPISODE N. 5 | HOWARD MARTIN (HEARTMATH) – Today’s episode with Howard Martin was recorded in two parts, the first with Howard and Alison, and the second part also includes Ervin Laszlo. Howard Martin is an author, business executive, and Executive Vice President, HeartMath LLC.

The HeartMath Institute is a non-profit organization committed to helping awaken the heart of humanity. HMI believes that when we align and connect our hearts and minds and connect with others, we awaken the higher mental, emotional and spiritual capacities that frequently lie dormant.

Our conversation today covered a range of fascinating subjects including HeartMath’s Heart Sensor App technology (i.e. The Inner Balance Trainer, available for Apple and Android devices), Heart Intelligence and Artificial Intelligence, and the path to a more compassionate world.

EPISODE N. 4 | LYNNE MCTAGGART – In today’s episode we speak with Lynne McTaggart about the power of intention as a function of consciousness, and how intention works in tandem with the act of paying “attention”.

We will also see how Lynne applies her science-based findings through her Intention Experiments, to quantifiably demonstrate how specific environments around the world show evidence of residual trauma, while other are capable of resonating healing energy.

EPISODE N. 3 | MICHAEL TOBIAS – In Michael Tobias’s ten-part docuseries, “Voice of the Planet,” the voice of Gaia played by Faye Dunaway, makes it clear that Nature is a self-regulating system, further suggesting that no species is exempt from extinction—including Humanity. This begs the question that if there’s no purpose to perpetuating our survival other than our sheer desire, what’s our reason for being here?

In today’s podcast Michael Tobias speaks with host Ervin Laszlo and moderator Alison Goldwyn to contemplate the value of the human species, and why it is (or perhaps is not) important for us to continue our stay on this planet. This episode concludes with co-host Fred Tsao offering some of his own thoughts on the same subject.

EPISODE N. 2 | CONVERSATION WITH HAZEL HENDERSON – In the first part of this program, Hazel speaks with Fred and Alison about her layer cake metaphor for the total productive system of an industrial society, the need for us to adapt a “love economy”, and comparisons between American and Chinese societies. She continues the conversation with Ervin (recorded separately), discussing such topics as sustainability and the prospects for the human race to adapt to a new paradigm as a matter of survival.

EVOLUTION — ‘The Force’ That is With Us

EVOLUTION — ‘The Force’ That is With Us
Dec 21, 2021 by Ervin Laszlo
There is a force in the universe that empowers and guides us to meet the challenges of our time. This force is not one of the known physical forces, a push-pull kinetic-energy force. It is a subtle impetus, an almost spiritual leaning or tendency. In the language of the life sciences, it can be called “a tropism,” an attraction toward particular resources or conditions. In the context of the systems sciences, it is an “attractor.” Attractors are conceptual tools for measuring the state of a complex system, assessing the configuration of the forces that maintain it in a steady- or in a dynamically evolving state. 

May the force be with you!

The Wisdom Principles - Publishers Weekly review

The Wisdom Principles - Publishers Weekly review
Jul 20, 2021 by Ervin Laszlo

Hungarian philosopher Ervin Laszlo (Reconnecting to the Source) melds science and spiritual practice in this shrewd guide to enlightened living. He begins by highlighting the need to live a life that is both healthy for Earth and beneficial to oneself, stressing that if readers “think globally, [their] life [will] become richer and healthier.” Laszlo explores how spiritual thinking, which is concerned with “experiential and presentational” knowledge, and the concept of “oneness” allows access to knowledge beyond one’s sensual understandings of the natural world.

Today we have an opportunity to create a new future.  We are moving out of the aftermath of a global crisis and face the task of rebuilding our world.  But do we have to “re-build” it in the strict sense of building its as it was — or can we build another world, a better world”. This possibility exists, and it poses an unprecedented challenge. Authors: Ervin Laszlo & Frederick Tsao, foreword by Deepak Chopra: Dawn of An Era of Well-Being does not offer a prediction — it respects the saying, “the future is not to be predicted, but created.”

'My Journey' New book to be released by Ervin Laszlo
Jun 03, 2021 by Ervin Laszlo

In this book, Ervin Laszlo recounts the story of his life, describing its fundamental transformations from musician to academic to global activist. But this story, he tells the reader, is more than an entertaining read – it also conveys a message. It shows that the quest that has marked Laszlo’s life is profound and meaningful, and important also for the reader. It is the quest find the purpose that underlies our life. Laszlo marshals scientific evidence that life is not a meaningless accident, but the expression of a universal drive in nature: the drive toward the evolution of complex and coherent systems, and of the consciousness that is associated with the systems. 

"In this interdependent and interacting quantum universe, this discovery endows your life, and all you do in your life, with supreme meaning and significance. By any measure, Ervin Laszlo has lived an extraordinary life that has unfolded within time as well as outside of time, and the world is a better place because he chose to do so.– Gregg Braden, in his Introduction to this book 

To be released by Select Books, New York in September 2021

 

The Royal Road

The Royal Road
Mar 05, 2021 by Ervin Laszlo

The great quest is already starting: finding the good way, the “royal road,” toward a better world. Recreating the old world is not an option—it is literally a dead-end. Then what is the right way: what road can take us from here to there—from a crisis-ridden uncertain and chaotic world to a world that offers a better, higher quality of life to the presently suffering and disoriented people of the human family?

Excerpt from THE IMMUTABLE LAWS OF THE AKASHIC FIELD

Excerpt from THE IMMUTABLE LAWS OF THE AKASHIC FIELD
Feb 16, 2021 by Ervin Laszlo
In times past, our fathers and forefathers conducted their search under the influence of the religious and spiritual doctrines they inherited from their own predecessors. But today, the problems of everyday life have overshadowed this search. Except for deeply religious and spiritual persons, the probability of gaining enlightenment from the wisdom evolved by previous generations has been seen as insignificant. But today, as we pull out of the virus pandemic and seek the way forward, this is no longer the case. The search can be, must be, and is in fact, revived.

 

Holism In Nation-State Politics

Holism In Nation-State Politics
Dec 01, 2020 by Ervin Laszlo
The current and now standard philosophy of contemporary politics and politicians is seriously outdated. It is based on an obsolete concept of the human being and human society. Seldom overtly acknowledged, it is this obsolete concept that underlies contemporary nation-state politics. Its operative assumption is that the universe is a chance-created mechanism, and life a random accident. The specific features of living species result from a succession of accidental events in the history of physico-chemical and biological evolution on this planet, and the features of human beings are due to the resulting fortuitous combination of their genes. The human mind is dominated by reproduction-oriented drives for sexual, self- preserving, and related forms of gratification. There is no higher order or guiding principle either in the natural or in the human world: force prevails, and is employed by those who possess it first of all to create wealth and power for themselves.

Spirituality's Account of the Miraculously Coherent Universe

Spirituality's Account of the Miraculously Coherent Universe
Jun 10, 2020 by Ervin Laszlo

The common narrative of spiritual accounts of this story of unity and coherence being (re)discovered by science is that of oneness.  Indeed, while the holotropic paradigm is gaining purchase through areas of scientific research in the sciences of complexity, quantum physics, cosmology, psychoneuroendocrinoimmunology and similar transdisciplinary and integral fields of study, spiritual traditions have long asserted the communion of all with all.  

Pandemic as Opportunity

Pandemic as Opportunity
Apr 09, 2020 by Ervin Laszlo

A global pandemic is an opportunity for global change—for rapid and effective change to a better world. Even if some people are depressed and do not see the light at the end of the tunnel, the pandemic we are experiencing is temporary; it will pass into history as all the previous pandemics did. But the change it brings may be lasting. It can be change for the better, or change for the worse. Making it a change for the better is an opportunity we cannot afford to miss.

An eye for an eye ends up making the whole world blind. Mahatma Gandhi. There is a well-known saying in France that the French people and all people on this conflict-ridden planet would do well to take to heart. Tout comprendre c’est tout pardonner. To understand all is to forgive all. To understand is to forgive.

Good-bye to Matter

Good-bye to Matter
Sep 03, 2016 by Ervin Laszlo

The history of Western thought is largely the history of materialism. With few exceptions, mainly confined to idealist philosophers and a handful of physicist, the belief that matter is the fundamental reality has prevailed. This belief is now transcended and will soon be abandoned.
