Birth 2012 and Beyond: Humanity's Great Shift to the Age of Conscious Evolution Reviews
Barbara Marx Hubbard's book presents her vision of a possible future for humanity - one based on collaboration, heart coherence, and care for the planet and all the beings on it through realizing our Oneness. The first part of the book provides many details of her life and the development of her vision and a loose outline how she envisions the organization of this global shift in various arenas, while the last part of the book shares 12 short essays from others new thinkers, like Michael Beckwith, Ervin Lazslo and Jack Canfield. Her message is hopeful, however Hubbard's writing is geared towards a specific reader - well-educated and comfortable with lengthy and somewhat scientific explanations. She includes many acronyms that she has coined and in many places, Chapter 4 in particular, the book reads like an infomercial in that it teases us with ideas without providing details, referring one instead to another book or film or course to purchase--and many of these materials are written by her. I would have much preferred more meat to be included about what these leaders and new movements are actually working towards and accomplishing and how individuals can concretely get involved. Much of what is in this book can be found for free at Hubbard's website and by listening online to events presented by the Shift Network. However if you are new to Hubbard and the ideas of Oneness, heart coherence or shift in consciousness, then her book provides an introduction to these concepts and more as well as a number of references to other writers and groups whose work you may find interesting. Also, if you are interested in a more scientific and less spiritual focus on the idea of a global shift or elevation of consciousness, then Hubbard may be the writer for you.
If you are interested in being the change you want to see in the world then this book is for you. In addition, Barbara's video called The Book of Co-creation on Gaia network is also excellent. And for true and immediate transformation of ego to true self then A Course In Miracles is a must.
If you don't know futurist and visionary, Barbara Marx Hubbard and you are a consciously evolving person on planet Earth and you know that we can make a difference by sharing our greatest gifts and talents with our communities, then you better order yourself a copy of this book right now! This is a great guide for transforming our lives in this new cycle of time we are experiencing on the planet.
A must read for those increasing numbers of people looking to a quantum leap in human spirituality to solve our earthly issues. What worked well for me was the realization of just how wide and how far this movement has progressed and the powerful call to action. What disappointed me was only the title and "2012 deadline" which, I believe will prematurely date the book as we await a critical mass for the big change.
Hubbard is clear about her intent in her book. Her goal is to awaken and "galvanize" thousands of us to change our way of thinking, no, our way of being. She has already sparked tens of thousands and I am sure we will meet our goal of 100 million by December 22. This is not "woo woo" stuff. There is evolutionary science to back up her assertions. We certainly can and will meet some kind of critical mass by the end of this year, Mayan prophecies aside, and it is clearly our choice which way we go. It is definitely a book that is just in time...for those of us with ears to hear and eyes to see and hearts to open. siouxlu
i have mixed reactions to this book. On the one hand I read about a third of the way into the material then put it aside because other projects were more urgent. For the most part I feel 'I have been there and done that'. However, that is the point of my other reactions; I think it amazing that we were at a place, which is commonplace today, thirty to forty years ago. I would recommend this book to the students of today's events because it can give insights into the underlying cause that has brought about the reasons we are witnessing them now. Robert Naanes
For those who have been watching and waiting and praying, hope glimmers from the pages of this breathtaking report of wonderful, powerful ideas and ideals that are being manifested in our world! I welcome the opportunity to express my gratitude and joy in this book and think of it as a gift to all who read it. The people who contributed their work and thoughts and aspirations bring hope and inspiration to the grass rooters like myself. Thank you so very much !
