Looker for a deeper explanation for what is going on in the world today? Here it is!! With hope, to boot. Please Read. — Chris Morrow

An ancient Tibetan Master, through Gill, states that unless we recognize the importance of the Spirit Realm, wrong decisions will continue to be made, which will result in humanity's demise.

In order to understand and solve the problems of the world, it must be reframed and put into a wider cosmic view and Spiritual context. Linear thinking creates limited vision and understanding. Grief arises from perception at a certain level.

Manjushri continues...the world of science negated many other forms of knowing that existed for thousands of years, when it was proclaimed that science is "the" way to see the world. He says that identifying and dissolving fear is THE essential work to save human life on the planet.

It takes time and an open mind to fully grasp the depth of meaning, brilliance and wisdom in this book. — Teresa King


Do you worry about our planet, with its environmental crises, global warming, widespread violence, and global poverty? Do you feel powerless to change your life and impact your world? What in the World Is Going On reframes these crises as an invitation to open our minds and hearts to a new awareness of our fundamental interdependence with all beings. With breathtaking optimism, it offers courage and hope to all who hold the world in their hearts and grieve.

Crises bring opportunities. We are poised to vastly expand our consciousness, allowing us to address our deep fears and create communities which embrace and serve all of us. The rich conversation between Manjushri, the Tibetan teacher, and the student probes the roots of our fears and challenges our common assumptions about the roles of science and markets in our world. It rejects the inflated claims of our ego-selves and the stifling confines of materialism.

The Teacher assures us everything can be changed. We can escape our isolation, celebrate our interdependence with all beings, and heal our communities. The worldwide web allows us to connect with like-minded people around the world.

This epochal shift in energy and consciousness is well underway. The Teacher encourages all of us to trust our emerging visions, dissolve the fears shrouding our best selves, and allow our natural compassion to flow out into the world.
