    Connection Between How We Act And Global Crisis

    According to the author there is a connection between our purpose for being here and the global crises the world is currently facing. This book actually describes very clearly the connection between all aspects of our lives: "While we have been growing increasingly global, we have also become increasingly self-centered, or as psychologists Jean M. Twenge and Keith Campbell describe it, “increasingly narcissistic." That is the society we have created here and we will need a very serious blueprint to get back on track. In a few years we’ll probably figure out that there can be no lasting pleasure from beating our own drum all day long 24/7. The time has come to understand that and the big message of this incredible book is that we better start figuring out how to change our ways now before it's too late. We must start thinking globally, about the well-being of the entire world, about healing our world. To do that we will have to change our perceptions of ancient wisdoms that can help us - this is a Kabbalah book after all. Laitman presents complex concepts in a friendly way and backed up by modern-day scientific proof so that anyone can understand how to get our world back in harmony - it starts with each one of us. Reading this book is the first step.
