During my Bond Tour, I have been continuously asked by radio show hosts, but what about the rights of the individual? What about enlightened self-interest as the chief driving force of business, education, sport - everything? Aren’t all better mousetraps the result of pushing ourselves as individuals? How will we ever achieve anything significant – or win at anything - if we don’t focus on number 1?

Today is 11-11-11, which is being talked up as some sort of portal to a new world, so I began assembling this blog at 11 am, just to keep in the spirit of things.
Actually I am asked, quite frequently, about evolution, and how I think it is going to go down. Are moments like 11-11-11 some sort of ‘sign’ of new consciousness that will suddenly envelop us like fairy dust and signal the start of the realm of the good and the true?
To that I have one stock answer. It’s going to start small and grow big, and it’s going to take a lot of conscious hard work.

I left America for England in 1980 to research a book about Kathleen Kennedy. Immediately I fell in love with London, and not long after fell in love, and as I got further and further entangled with the place – first with husband, then house and children, business and pets - I basically never came home.Read More >>

I am back from whizzing around America once again, and in every city I visited, there was an Occupy encampment. As the movement gathers steam worldwide, I am amused by how much the press has really missed the point of what is actually happening and what this reflects about our current society.

Every day, it seems, I’m being asked to be part of something evolutionary. Evolutionary groups and committees. Evolutionary teleseminars and meetings. Evolutionary leaps. New paradigm this, new paradigm that. Co-creation. Emergent. 2012. End of the world. Beginning of the world.
I’m more than happy to join in the fray largely because I live in hope that we’ll eventually fumble our way through to something new. But what has saddened me about most things evolutionary is that, in the main, much of what passes for efforts to create supposedly new prescriptions for living are being unconsciously assembled with a very old set of tools.Read More >>

The people of America, at long last, have had enough of unfairness. From Wall Street to Main Street, they have taken to the streets. Teachers, soldiers, postal workers – all those in the core traditional jobs of American public sector – are suffering huge layoffs and now ready to join the millions of people now out of work and living without health insurance or the likely prospect of another job.

I have sad personal news to report – the death of our family’s beloved pet, Ollie. In early September, Ollie suffered from congestive heart failure. After a week spent in doggie intensive care and then several weeks more back and forth from our vet, he finally lost the fight a week ago and passed on.
Ollie’s extremely non-competitive behaviour in part, inspired me to write The Bond. I thought of him in relation to some new evidence I just discovered about why we are kind to each other.
Ollie was a small, tri-colored Cavalier King Charles spaniel and, characteristic of the breed which was bred by royal decree, he was born with a peculiar sense of regal entitlement and a permanent look of disdain. Ollie belonged in a Peanuts cartoon, the curmudgeonly dog whose thought balloon, like Snoopy’s, continuously registered his exasperation at his clueless owners.Read More >>

I’m back from holiday and with fabulous news. The 9/11 Global Peace Intention Experiment has mushroomed into an extraordinary and enormous event. Every day, more organizations are offering to work together to make the anniversary of 9/11 into a day of unity, evolution and peace.
Tens of thousands of Arabs and Americans are joining together for the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attack on New York’s Twin Towers for a remarkable experiment: to discover whether their collective intention can bring greater peace to an area of conflict.Read More >>

As you’ve probably heard, my adopted country, Great Britain, is on fire. From Manchester to London entire communities have been set alight, stores and houses vandalized, people beaten up, and five murdered as of this writing. Last Wednesday, my sleepy suburban corner of London was crawling with policemen, acting on inside information that our area was targeted next.
Commentators have been busy, trying to work out the collective significance of the anarchy on the streets. Who is doing this? Are they provocateurs, bussed in from the outside? Or well organized protests against globalization? Or perhaps the criminal underbelly of society?Read More >>

For most of the last 10 days, I’ve been on the phone. On the other end of the line has been virtually every important thought leader in the human potential movement: Jack Canfield, Marianne Williamson, Michael Beckwith, Marci Shimoff, Steven Covey, Howard Martin, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Jean Houston, Lisa Nichols, Bobbi DePorter, Eric Pearl, Arjuna Ardagh, Gay and Katie Hendricks, Don Beck, James O’Dea, Arielle Ford, Janet Attwood, Bryan Hubbard, Katherine Woodward Thomas.
You name them, I spoke to them this week. And I’m carrying on next week, too.Read More >>
