Overview

New edition is being published in April 2014 as Children of a Living Universe.

Our Solarian Legacy is a call to action unlike any other you may have encountered before. According to cultural historian and cosmologist Paul Von Ward, the time has come for human beings to reassess just about everything we believe about our ancestry and global past. Drawing upon forgotten prehistory, clues from the world's esoteric traditions, new research in consciousness, and subtle energies and sound reasoning, Von Ward asserts we are more powerful beings than either science or religion has led us to believe. He extols us to embrace a bold, new model of human existence, one that explains our celestial origins, multidimensional capacities and destiny as conscious cocreators of a self-learning and self-correcting universe.

With great insight and clarity, Von Ward envisions that discovery of our true legacy will inspire a global renaissance of inner knowing and unprecedented social progress. Beyond earthly evolution, he sees humanity assuming its place as part of a universal community of conscious beings and fulfilling our potential to serve as galactic leaders. Expanding our individual and collective consciousness will be an open-ended process, Von Ward says, and will require self-initiation, self-instruction, and self-learning in resonance with the universe. Our Solarian Legacy is a brilliant guide to this new and essential process in human spiritual evolution.

    This book is fabulous

    If you have been reading every book you can get your hands on, to learn about the why, where and what, this book will excite you! The knowledge accumulation is outstanding, the depths of his studies are amazing, the references spectacular. I can not say enough, it is so astounding. I find myself tagging many pages to come back and re-read after I finish the book. Paul Van Ward has outdone himself. I think he is amazing, his collation of information, his premises,for example of senses beyond what we know and admit to, among a whole spectrum of thoughts. Many of us will know instinctively that he is right on .

    Our Solarain Legacy

    Whether you are a beginner in your search for how we fit into this universe or well down the road, OUR SOLARIAN LEGACY is a 'must read.' Paul Von Ward has done an extraordinary amount of research for this excellent book. It is broad and comprehensive thus providing and overview of many areas of research for the beginner to further consider and to help the well-traveled pull together loose ends. With insight and clarity he emphasizes that this self-learning universe is a manifestation of conscious energy that has created us as way of experiencing itself, and that we are designed to actively participate in its expression. With that in mind, we never have to feel separate from anything else.
