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.

New book to be released: Dawn of an Era of Well-Being
Jul 17, 2021 by Ervin Laszlo
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.”

THE UPSHIFT - Meeting the Challenge

THE UPSHIFT - Meeting the Challenge
Jul 15, 2021 by Ervin Laszlo
Shifting UP to a better world—or spiralling DOWN to crisis and chaos. That, as Hamlet would say, is the question. It is the challenge of our time. We are at a turning point where we decide our destiny. 

'My Journey' New book to be released by Ervin Laszlo

'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.

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.

Are You Available? Augmenting Access to the Akasha Dimension
Dec 16, 2012 by Ervin Laszlo

If only everyone would stop rushing around for a moment so you can just collect your thoughts. All you need is a moment. You know how it is. There is so much noise, so much going on, you can't even hear yourself think!

Be Supercoherent -- Tune Into Your Consciousness!

If you want to be supercoherent, you must take the time to listen, feel, and be aware of what you hear and feel -- of all that you hear and feel. 
"You can't solve the significant problems of our time with the same kind of thinking that gave rise to the problems." -- Albert Einstein

We Have Lost Something Important, and We Must Absolutely Regain It -- But What?

We Have Lost Something Important, and We Must Absolutely Regain It -- But What?
Oct 30, 2012 by Ervin Laszlo
There is something wrong with the world, something that makes it impossible for us to sustain ourselves in harmony with each other and with nature. Most other species can, and humans could, at least in the past. Today we cannot. It seems that we have lost something. Something that we need absolutely to regain if we are to live and thrive. But what?

Akashic Think... World Changing

Akashic Think... World Changing
Sep 14, 2012 by Ervin Laszlo
The Akasha Paradigm tells us that we live in an interconnected, intrinsically non-local world. Everything that happens in one place happens also in another place, and in some sense happens everywhere. This is the meaning of "non-locality." "The world is not outside of me, and I am not outside of the world. The world is in me, and I am in the world." Is this true? And what does it do for me, and for my world?

What Is Akasha Consciousness -- For You?

What Is Akasha Consciousness -- For You?
Sep 09, 2012 by Ervin Laszlo
What is Akasha consciousness, a dream or a nightmare? Or could it be your own deep consciousness "re-cognized" for what it really is? Your answer could make a difference -- a difference to you and to the world.

To Change or Not to Change: That Is Not the Question

To Change or Not to Change: That Is Not the Question
Jul 12, 2012 by Ervin Laszlo
But how to change and what to change — that is. The shifters — in the global context, “worldshifters” — insist that only a fundamental transformation is of any use. The stabilizers fear such drastic changes: they are for maintaining the current system by making it stronger and more resilient. Who is right?

Assuming you agree that we must evolve beyond tribalism if we are to survive, would you consider yourself to have planetary consciousness? These 10 questions will tell you.

The Worldshift Has Started

The Worldshift Has Started
Jun 18, 2011 by Ervin Laszlo
More and more people seem convinced that something dramatic will happen at the end of 2012. Something dramatic will indeed happen — and it could be something dramatically good. While the world will not suddenly become a paradise on earth, we could launch a process that would take it in that direction. Because the end of 2012 will be a transition from one age to the next.

Why Your Brain Is A Quantum Computer

Why Your Brain Is A Quantum Computer
May 25, 2011 by Ervin Laszlo
Scientists have believed that the brain operates as a biochemical and bioelectric system. Individual brain cells, so-called neurons, fire in complex coordinated patterns, and their chemical and electrical discharges make up a network that processes information. Somehow, this information (or some part of it) gets translated into conscious “mind-events”: shapes and colors, sounds, and the other “data” of your senses.

If Your Brain Is A Quantum Computer, Can It Connect You To The World?

If Your Brain Is A Quantum Computer, Can It Connect You To The World?
May 25, 2011 by Ervin Laszlo
Could it be that the Internet mirrors something about how we really communicate (or could communicate) with each other and with the world? I’d like you to consider the possibility that nature embodies within herself a kind of Internet, and that through our brain we might be able to communicate with it. Let me consider here the ramifications of this possibility for our life and our future.
