Over the past 25 years, author and thought leader Jed Diamond has been sharing his reflections on the shift from “the old human paradigm of infinite growth on a finite planet” to “a new paradigm of sustainability and earth consciousness.”
This past Father’s Day, he wrote a piece for The Good Men Project in which he listed the books that have changed his life. Along with Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock, Herb Goldberg’s The Hazards of Being Male, and Daniel Quinn’s Ishmael, he cited my recent book A New Republic of the Heart which he says, “challenges all of us to find our tribe and engage our future.”
Here’s an additional excerpt from Jed’s article:
We have an opportunity to save humanity and there are opportunities galore to become involved. In order to do that we have to hold the two possibilities of love and grief. We must love what we have and grieve what is being lost. We have to learn to live with paradox.
Not only does Terry’s book offer his own life experience to guide us, but he introduces us to the most enlightened leaders who can also help us find our own path to the future, and guide us in finding our own tribe we can join so that we feel loved, supported, and engaged as we work together to create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
