The Creative Principle”
A Cosmology for the 21st Century
by William O. Joseph
There is a growing awareness on our planet that something is systemically wrong with the way we have organized human affairs. Our old cultural belief systems are breaking down at an unprecedented rate. Millions of people who have based their lives on our old stories of how our financial systems, political systems and religious systems are supposed to work are finding themselves sorely disillusioned. Why is all of this happening?
Author, William O. Joseph, was asking those same questions in the late sixties. Having lived with the Vietnam War, the Kennedy assassinations, civil rights unrest, Woodstock and the specter of nuclear annihilation, he sensed that there was some kind of fundamental problem with humanity’s view of itself. To paraphrase Joseph Campbell, we didn’t have a cultural mythology that fully explained who we are, why we are here and what unites us all as a species in a satisfying way.
In the early seventies William embarked on a quest for truth and meaning. He sensed that what he was seeking might be found in nature and began the search in the high desert near Taos, New Mexico. He wanted to study the fundamental components of the simple life without all of the bother of civilization. What would a person have to do to shelter from the wind and the rain and stay warm and fed in the high desert environment? He learned to walk great distances and to move silently through the sage brush as the animals do. He learned to sit quietly for long periods of time just observing and becoming one with nature.
Eventually the quest took him to Colorado where he learned to trap and hunt on horseback in the high Rockies. He spent years living in tipis and a succession of tents and cabins. He then left the Rocky Mountains to study Eastern Mysticism and spent five years in an ashram setting. Over the next ten years he rose through the ranks of the construction and development industries to produce over a million square feet of commercial real estate. During the nineties he returned home to the Rocky Mountains and traveled many thousands of miles on his beloved mare, China Dancer.
Inspired by the photographs of deep space being returned by the Hubble Space Telescope, he began to see a distinct correlation between Quantum Physics and Ancient Hindu Lore. The results of that forty year quest for enduring truth and meaning are set down in his new book, The Creative Principle: A Cosmology for the 21st Century.
Why do we need to create a new cosmology for the 21st century? We need to replace the belief systems that separate one culture from another, one ideology from another and one religion from another with a new world view that emphasizes the universal concepts that unite us all as a species.
Once in a while a book comes along that provides some clues about how to do that. The Creative Principle is such a book.
In The Creative Principle, author William O. Joseph tells a new story about how creation is really structured. Blending modern science with ancient philosophy Mr. Joseph constructs a universe that exists for the expansion of human consciousness. He outlines how the very structure of matter reveals the process by which we can each evolve into a higher awareness and stay there. The author presents a compelling narrative ranging from the unified field to the Law of Attraction and the role emotions play in manifesting our reality. He describes an astro-physical reason why we are all feeling such an acceleration in human affairs.
The author also exposes the fatal flaws in our financial system and projects the logical outcome of our current methods of distributing wealth. The book finishes up with a discussion of the global paradigm change that needs to take place before the next step in human evolution can occur. If you have a sense that some sort of destiny is approaching fast, this book will give you some tools to use in understanding the quickening that is occurring.
Bill is one of our own. He spent many years living close to nature while exploring the Rocky Mountains on horseback. After his years of exploring he now lives and writes in Flathead Valley. Mt.
