A Limited Edition of 2 000 books was printed and sold mainly in Cape Town through word-of-mouth and presentations conducted by Carole Knight. Because of the book’s beautiful presentation, it has become something of a collector’s item in certain quarters.
Global survival in a world that seems to be spinning out of control is one of the most important issues of our modern age. As such, it is a subject that is engaging the deep concern of the majority of world citizens. Everywhere we turn there is evidence of human dissension, societal disintegration and environmental degradation. Globally, we are witnessing the dramatic death throes of the old world order as prophesied by many diverse wisdom teachings and correlated by findings of the modern scientific community. We are in essence a global community in transition, manifesting all the anxiety, restlessness and disruption of a culture in the throes of a great change.
However, all is not blackness and despair. Underlying the negativity is a groundswell of change in human attitudes and actions that provides a miracle of hope for the future, and it is this significant shift in human consciousness that is what the book is all about. It is about the miraculous transformation taking place in the hearts and minds of people everywhere, as a beacon of hope for a new tomorrow.
This book answers many of the most pressing questions of our time in a balanced, yet realistic way, synthesizing scientific investigation with down-to-earth investigative journalism. It is timely and thought provoking, and is written in a style that is anecdotal and accessible.
