Of course, changing your story is no small matter. Most of us have been thoroughly indoctrinated into the world’s current consensus reality, the toxic Story of Separation. Awakening into the Story of Interbeing, in which there is no ultimate separation between you and anything else, is a radical and liberating shift.
Eisenstein is a clear, insightful and eloquent writer. He does a beautiful job walking the reader step-by-step through this conceptually challenging journey. I’ve been evolving more deeply into interbeing for many years now and was delighted to receive valuable new insights.
Eisenstein addresses the issues that plague us head-on, with chapters such as Breakdown, Cynicism, Insanity, Despair and Scarcity. But as the book nears its conclusion, we enter the territory of Miracle, Truth, and Initiation. Eisenstein’s compassionate and uplifting worldview shows a way out of hopelessness into a radiant reality where you and everyone else can thrive.
In alignment with the “gift economy” principles Eisenstein laid out in his earlier book, Sacred Economics, the entire text of The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible is available free online. Sample a few pages and see what you think!
