The Whole Elephant Revealed & Societies in Balance
The universal laws are the underlying principles of the dynamics and harmony in the universe. I’ll describe these universal laws based on the common insights of all wisdom traditions on the one hand and on cutting-edge scientific discoveries that are in line with those insights on the other hand. This synthesis reveals a coherent holistic worldview and helps us to understand what really works and what doesn’t work. For everything that is in line with these universal laws takes minimal effort, is in tune with who we really are and is in balance and harmony with the greater whole, contributing to the well being of everyone and everything.
‘Societies in Balance’ is the term I use to describe societies that have the insights into the universal laws integrated in all aspects of their culture. As a result ‘Societies in Balance’ are peaceful, stable, egalitarian and flourishing societies, that are in harmony with nature. Once they existed in many places. Recently wisdom keepers from all over the world have shared their ancient wisdom about these societies. Their wisdom helps us to understand what is necessary at this moment in history to restore the balance in our societies as well as in ourselves.
