CREATING A MORE LOVING AND CARING WORLD AS WE GO THROUGH THE PROCESS OF GLOBALIZATION -
As a private practitioner in a family and child therapy, Don Ayre observed that when we have a more balanced awareness of life as a four dimensional process that integrates the material, intellectual, emotional and spiritual realms of our growth and development, we are happier as individuals…and we contribute more successfully to the lives of others. This means routinely asking ourselves four basic life questions: Who am I? What’s it all about? Where do I fit in? and Why are we here? But in psychotherapy as in life itself, we tend to be three dimensional and to include our spirituality more as an afterthought.
In Toward a More Loving and Caring World, Don Ayre invites readers to explore different methods of participating in a more four dimensional kind of questioning. There is an urgency today. We are going through a process of globalization that is putting enormous pressure on us to change. The more we are open in mind and heart to our common human destiny, the more likely we are to create a more loving and caring world. To do this, we need to generate a stronger sense of Universal Love – love of self, love of others, love of society, and love of humanity – all within the context of an awareness of our Cosmic Reality. That’s what continuously asking ourselves life’s four most basic questions is all about. It’s makes us more aware, more accepting and more understanding about life itself and enables us to be not only successful but self-fulfilled and happy.
