Barbara Marx Hubbard
“Our media, which is like a planetary nervous system, are far more sensitive to breakdowns than to breakthroughs. They filter out our creativity and successes, considering them less newsworthy than violence, war, and dissent. When we read newspapers and watch television news, we feel closer to a death in the social body than to an awakening.”
“Maslow had the genius to study 'well' people rather than the sick and discovered that all fully functioning, joyful, productive, and self-actualizing people have one trait in common: chosen work or vocation.”
“Catastrophe and creation are twins.”
“The great human problem of evil stems from the illusion of separateness. Whenever this illusion is overcome, we behave lovingly to one another.”
Barbara Marx Hubbard, U.S. futurist, writer, speaker
