When Beliefs Fail

When Beliefs Fail - Jim Stempel

"... a warm, lively, and altogether accessible introduction to the growth and development of human consciousness from birth to enlightenment." - Ken Wilber "We are on the hinge of history, with a new view of reality taking shape before our eyes. For a captivating glimpse of this emerging worldview, When Beliefs Fail is highly recommended." - Larry Dossey Caught between a scientific worldview that scoffs at the spiritual and a mythical worldview that runs counter to scientific reason, many seekers don't know where to turn. For those whose beliefs-religious, agnostic, or atheistic-fail to make sense or provide inner peace, Jim Stempel offers hope. Explaining that the barrier to truth is the limitation of our beliefs, Stempel encourages an expanding of our focus. Just as the noise and movement of a carwash seem chaotic to those who stay inside their cars, so can our lives seem chaotic when we are on the inside looking out.

When Beliefs Fail takes us outside our personal sound and fury to look at the whole. What we see, Stempel suggests, is our own psycho-spiritual evolutionary path, as we and humanity move toward universal truth. He offers us a future which will bring science, religion, philosophy, and psychology together, aided by a changed perspective in education as development is understood to be a lifelong process for every human being. Jim Stempel has published numerous works of short fiction, and his novel, American Rain, was released in 1991 to critical acclaim. True to his own insistence on the active and the practical, he is an athlete and the president of an insurance firm on the East Coast.
