We need not wait until 2012 for a new level of consciousness to arrive. Neither do we need wait until 2012 to begin living it.

...next was to find the contributors. And this he (Young) has done with aplomb. For these writers represent a wide spectrum of ideas that will appeal to an equally wide constituency - whether the interests are scientific, spiritual, psychological, anthropological or mystical, or all of these things. Generally, the tone is sanguine, the message, inaugural. Importantly, most will find a standpoint with which they can identify.
Essentially, I feel that what this book is dealing with is the 'one life within us and abroad' which the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge so earnestly recognised 200 years ago at the very start of the great period of psychic change which, as it has gathered momentum, has brought more and more people to this universalist understanding.~ Geoff Ward (UK), Writer and reviewer for many websites and blogs in the UK, this one from Mind and Soul, Suite 101 and www.MysteriousPlanet.net
“…the idea to edit a spiritual antidote to the doom and gloom crowd prophesying the earth’s destruction wasn’t a leap for Young. After soliciting help from a diverse array of spiritual teachers, Mayan priests, scientists and metaphysicians, Young wrote a chapter himself and edited 12 more in just two months.
