Willis Harmen, an acclaimed scientist, wrote Global Mind Change in 1988 and it is still one of the most insightful and inspiring pictures of the dynamic change going on in our culture today.
We are in the midst of changing the ultimate definer reality from science to perennial wisdom. It’s a shift in our focus from the external to our internal world. It’s a shift from reality being defined by knowledge to reality being defined by wisdom.
The last time there was a major shift in the ultimate definer of reality was in the 1500s when Galileo published a paper saying the sun, not the earth, was at the center of the universe. The ultimate definer of reality at the time was the church and they threatened him with excommunication if he did not recant and then imprisoned him for the rest of his life.
The perennial wisdom is the core esoteric and often secret inner teachings of all religions and wisdom traditions. While the exoteric forms of religion can vary significantly, scholars from Aldous Huxley to Houston Smith have noted the core principles and teachings of all religions and wisdom traditions are remarkably similar.
In the video section of the website I have provided some more detail on this great book. Enjoy!
