In his tenth and latest book, Creme emphasizes that co-operation among people and nations is 'not optional' if we choose to survive. It is the very foundation upon which a brilliant new civilization can be built.
Steeped in the 'ageless wisdom' that substands all the world's spiritual traditions, Creme traces the origins of the competitive spirit and shows its gradual replacement by co-operation as humanity advances. He describes the illusions that hide our fundamental unity and explains how ending our sense of separation will lead to a great leap forward in human evolution. He further reveals:
For more than 27 years Benjamin Creme has traveled the world raising public awareness about the Masters of Wisdom. "Without the presence of the Masters," says Creme, "I believe we would not achieve the sharing, and therefore the justice and peace, which is required. It takes Their galvanizing spirit, energy, and wisdom to create the conditions to lift humanity, to inspire us; and also to show us what will happen if we do not change."
**THE ART OF CO-OPERATION**
Part One discusses at length the opposing ways of approaching and dealing with life: co-operating or competing. It traces the origins of the competitive spirit and shows its gradual replacement by co-operation as humanity advances. Many of the problems of the modern world are seen in this context, and co-operation is shown as *the* way, in line with our soul's intent, to solve them.

Hope for the future. The first part of this book on the art of co-operation interested me the most. Mr. Creme connects two central problems the world faces today: the economic crisis and the question of war and peace. He shows how the unequal distribution of resources in the world creates social tensions with risk of war. This dangerous situation can be overcome by replacing competition by co-operation. This would mean a total transformation of our economic structures. But according to Mr. Creme, in the long run this is possible. This gives hope for a safer and happier future for all humanity.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
"The Art of Cooperation" is one of my favorites. I have read all of Ben Cremes books because they are easy reads, uplifting, and full of interesting information, good humor and hope for humanity. If you take a universal approach to spirituality, and are interested in learning more about the interconnections and essential oneness of humanity and our place in Cosmos, you will love these books. Specifically, this book tells about the modes necessary for humanity to move forward effectively and evolve quickly out of the current separative paradigm towards a Golden Age of sustainability, justice and undreamed-of creativity. Creme's stories of what we can look forward to in the near future are fascinating, and he makes the esoteric philosophy and the ancient wisdom teachings very understandable. If you like this one, you will also like "The Art of Living" and "The Gathering of the Forces of Light"Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Talks about the way we can learn to recognize the need for diversity but still have co-operation. covers right relationship, healthy competition, motive, how to inculcate the co-operative attitude, glamour,and overcoming it, heart versus mental response, soul rays and glamours, the need for unity, trust, consensus. Also includes powerful prayers for daily use. Especially found the recognizing and overcoming of glamour useful....we don't always see the truth about ourselves.Was this review helpful?

For those familiar with British author, artist and esotericist Benjamin Creme, this newest compilation from recent talks continues on themes from his previous books, and adds up-to-date socio-political commentary on how best to alleviate the precarious international tensions of the post- 9/11 world. With sharp social commentary on the stance of the current US administration, Creme maintains no illusions, but rather offers insightful guidance on the only reliable means to creating a truly peaceful world-- equitable distribution of global resources via international co-operation and justice. According to Creme, a peaceful world will be more fully possible when the whole of humanity begins to realize its essential unity. Also included is helpful commentary on how to create co-operation in one's personal life and in group work. For those readers who are not familiar with Creme's work, and who might benefit from more background information, two of his earlier titles are recommended: 'The Great Approach,' and 'The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom.'Was this review helpful?

I found Benjamin Creme's book, The Art of Co-operation, to be one of those books with information that kind of finds its way into your system by osmosis. In fact, I read it several times and each time felt like I had gained more insight into the solution to our world's most perplexing problems. A must read, if you are interested in our problems, the solutions, the future, and your own spiritual growth. Great book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
