For centuries, we human beings have seen all the phenomena in our lives in terms of the law of cause and effect. We have accepted this law as a matter of course, and we have continually let it control us, giving in to our fears and anxieties.
The eight chapters in this book show us how we can reverse the flow of our thought-energy, harnessing the magnificent qualities already present within us to achieve the future we desire. With the principle of effect and cause, we are no longer at the mercy of our past. We have all we need to envision a radiant future that flows back and becomes our present reality.
The book’s appendices present concrete methods for changing our way of thinking, along with inspiring words and examples of how people around the world are working for a transformation in consciousness and the dawn of a new human civilization.
