The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible

by Charles Eisenstein

Overview

Humankind is in crisis mode. We are living in a separated world where self-interest and survival are dominant. In order to fully live, we need to change our awareness and actions.

Charles Eisenstein, a once broke Yale graduate and construction worker, is now a public speaker and author of four philosophical books. In his 2013 book, The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible, Eisenstein seeks to teach us to truly unite with each other and the planet.

Through real-life examples, Eisenstein takes us on a philosophical journey of the decline of Earth and humanity. Eisenstein's work is a guide to how we can shift to a more beautiful, connected world.

Favorite quote

The smile must be real. The love must be real. If there is an intent to manipulate, to show the other up, to highlight the brutality by contrasting it with one's own non-violence, then the power of the smile and the hug is much less strong.
