A New America: An Awakened
Future on Our Horizon has been written for anyone who
is looking to gain a deeper understanding of core values and beliefs
of Americans and who wants to make a positive difference – as
well as for those people who are in positions of leadership and
greater influence to make immediate use of this material.
This book includes key strategies and elements for political, social, economic, and cultural changes that can facilitate the emergence of a more enlightened society. It can be used as a guide, providing basic and advanced insights for how it could be possible for individuals and human society to make such major positive changes.
While a major portion of the book focuses on U.S. society, it is really about all of humanity.
A New America offers new research and new insight into U.S. society, the most diverse country in the world. This material demonstrates practical pathways in our personal and social psyche directly leading to a better way of living for all human beings.
Its premise is principally based
on a remarkable large-scale national research study conducted at
the turn of the millennium – and is significantly informed by many
years' experience with philanthropy, business, technologies, social/political
activism, and spirituality. With its sophisticated story arc spanning
most of its 400 pages, extensive sidebar text and graphics, and
full color throughout, this is truly a very special book.
Unlike the bulk of opinion polling and typical survey research, A New America detects and explains deeper drivers of our behavior, both conscious and unconscious. As we re-examine values and beliefs that have often been implicit in our way of life, these initial study findings address the heart of global conflict. In this material, we make a case for the social basis of a "culture of wisdom," which currently lies close enough to the surface of our personal and group awareness that it could be quickly brought forth in response to both a new type of leadership and a new type of social movement.
In A New America, there
are ultimately no simple good guys
or bad guys. Instead, new concepts are put forward – such as "discernment
with compassion" –
to bridge the illusory gulf between
people. This book is dedicated to everyone who is an agent of higher
purpose and positive change ...and to everyone who has ever wondered
about their own true nature.
We each have the innate gifts
to be a part of birthing a new world free of conflict and domination. A
New America is not only about U.S. society, it is about everyone
and concerns all humanity. The key is in making the choice to create
something new that serves our extraordinary future potential. The
alternative is to risk "going down with the ship" by remaining in
the confines of an "old game" – one that is rapidly falling apart
and endangering everyone's future.
