We are now perched on a strange cusp of history, a time when the world feels like it’s been turned upside down, and nothing is quite as we imagined. But uncertainty is always a precursor to sweeping change; transformation is always preceded by upheaval and fear. I urge you to place your faith in the human capacity for creativity and love, because these forces, when combined, possess the power to illuminate any darkness.
The price of greatness is…responsibility.
May our philosophies keep pace with our technologies. May our compassion keep pace with our powers. And many love, not fear, be the engine of change.
Love is from another realm. We cannot manufacture it on demand. Nor can we subdue it when it appears. Love is not our choice to make.
Love is not a finite emotion.
We don’t have only so much to share.
Our hearts create love as we need it.
We must become a spiritual partner of science, using our vast experience-millennia of philosophy, personal inquiry, mediation, soul-searching-to help humanity build a moral framework and ensure that the coming technologies will unify, illuminate, and raise us up…rather than destroy us.

[Loved this book. If ‘Da Vinci Code’ was my Alpha, ‘Origin’ is my omega. Recommend highly in the context of our contemporary polarized, tribal, fear-based culture. Can’t wait for the film!]
