|Last August when I came back to Brazil after having participated
as a speaker at the International Enneagram Association
Conference in Redwood City, California, with the topic of “Global
Unity Enneagram; a Proposal for Applying Enneagram in Programs
of Education, Social Responsibility and Sustainability,” I realized that
it is really urgent to mobilize our community on these current critical
issues. Signs of this planetary emergency were in the newsstands in
the San Francisco airport, especially in Newsweek magazine of August 13, 2007, with the following
cover: Global Warming is a Hoax. USA TODAY of August 10-12, 2007, published a report on the front
page called “Climate Model Predicts Hot Decade.” Scientific American Magazine that same month
published an article on “The Undeniable Case for Global Warming.”
Global Warming... We have been hearing these two words more and more often. We are in a critical
moment worldwide. Not that it has arrived without warning, but it has never been so urgent to
become aware that our species is endangered and it has never been so urgent that each one of us
must do something about it.
We human beings are responsible for this crisis whose consequences are still unpredictable. The
negative aspects of the human psyche are behind all this: our greed, our aggressiveness, our indolence,
our illusory ways of interpreting reality, our false idea of separativeness, and finally, the “Nine Sins”
and its “tentacles”. In 2000, my book Apocalypse 21: A Vision of Good that is About to Come was
published. It is a mixture of science fiction and romance in which I wrote that our species can suffer
a violent evolutionary “Deflection” if we can’t reverse the current and dangerous world scenery.
Many of these issues have been happening. It is in this book that I included the Manifest of Global
In his endnote presentation, Khristian will explore how the unity of global consciousness is essential to
heal the ills of the world.
