Product Description

About the Author

Judy Rodgers (1956 2013) was chef and owner of the Zuni Cafe in San Francisco.

Gayatri Naraine has been the Brahma Kumaris' (BK's) representative to the United Nations since 1980. As the BK's liaison to the UN, her role was to connect what the UN was doing on a global scale in the social and humanitarian fields of development with what the BK's were doing in those same areas using their expertise in spiritual growth of people on a personal scale. Gayatri was pivotal in the development of the Living Values Education program and worked closely with UNICEF and UNESCO in its implementation. She has also contributed to ILO's (International Labor Organization) Agenda on Decent Work in their consultation with non-governmental organizations.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've at last managed to get a copy of this book, and enjoyed reading it enormously. I loved the humility, honesty and clarity with which the authors take us with them on a journey of discovery, into the nature of greatness and beyond. They make astonishingly good use of dual scientific/spiritual perspectives as part of the exploration. One central conclusion is that ideologies etc are the bane of our existence, because of the way they block our natural caring and connectedness. I found this powerful and timely. I also found an unexpected treasure in Humberto Maturana's telling of Goethe's Faust: illuminating the exalted state of which we are capable - but also showing that it can be at the root of the biggest trap that "the devil" lays for us. When Faust loses himself in the "helper high" - wanting it never to end - that is the point at which the devil shows up and he loses his soul. There is such deep wisdom in this, supporting Dadi Janki's conclusion in the book that we need communities of greatness, something beyond greatness; not the individual greatness that in today's world carries such a high risk of turning into egoism, frustration, and anger.
