I had the honor of meeting with Ervin Laszlo a few weeks ago. Not only was this an exciting opportunity to meet with one of the top intellectuals of our times, but a personal milestone to spend time with a kindred spirit.
For those close to me, my confidence in our technological advancements might seem very unlikely. While I might not be the biggest technology buff around and am probably the last man on earth without a cell phone, I do recognize that technology has to be a big part of the solution. Once we are able to break through the cultural conditioning that has enslaved us to material scarcity, humanity as a whole will be able to focus on the new light of spiritual abundance.
In both the literal and symbolic sense, we are living in a time of great evolutionary change, and in my opinion, we can’t really talk about what the year 2012 means for us as a global community without addressing the Mayan calendar and its prophesies surrounding this momentous year.
