Finding Possibility Even in Times of Suffering
Throughout millennia, human beings worldwide have asked why must there be so much suffering. With the pandemic, wars, climate change, shifting financial markets, and so much more, we may be asking ourselves, how can we get through this and how can we help in this time of world crisis? Must we always have crisis before we experience evolution? Our guests today, NYT best-selling author of “Happy for No Reason” Marci Shimoff and scholar, philosopher, and researcher Jean Houston, Ph.D, delve into the idea of finding possibility, even in the face of deep suffering. Jean is a foremost visionary in the field of human potential and she asks us to recognize that we are in the midst of an evolutionary shift in consciousness. These crisis points occur just prior to humanity making major revolutionary leaps. Marci discusses Einstein’s famous quote which asks if the universe is benevolent, while Jean shares a personal story of her relationship with psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl. They further discuss how there is an unconditional place of peace and well-being, even in the midst of immense suffering. Jean believes we are in a renaissance period now and although we’ve experienced the pandemic, wars, and scenes of outrage, we’ve also seen the linking of hearts, which is indeed the gestation period of a New Humanity. People want peace worldwide. We can do this by accessing the very depths of the human spirit which is available to all of us. Info: JeanHouston.com and YourYearofMiracles.com.
