Endorsements for NOT-TWO IS PEACE

 

“At this crossroads in history, many serious attempts are being made to steer humanity toward a new and sustainable civilization. Among them, this book by Adi Da is outstanding as a unique and radical message oriented to meet the global state of emergency through a new modus operandi, “the working-presumption of prior unity”, and a Global Cooperative Forum that could empower the more than six billion inhabitants of the planet to take their destiny into their own hand. This vision deserves to be read and pondered, and decisively acted upon.”

ERVIN LASZLO
Founder and President of the Club of Budapest

 

“In Adi Da’s wonderful book, this great friend of the whole world reaches out, with impeccably loving truth, profound compassion, and enlightened insight, to offer humanity a way forward to heal and re-solve our dis-membered psyche and thus our dysfunctional behaviors that continue to arise from its schism. Adi Da identifies its cause as our ego-based illusion of the apparent separation of the world and our collective forgetting of its and our “prior unity”. Not only is his understanding of unity-expressed-in-diversity vital at this pivotal moment in human history, but it is gaining compelling and transformational validation from the latest scientific evidence.”

“The narrative of Adi Da’s book is simple, powerful, accessible, and compassionate. And his message, grounded in global wisdom, is urgent and timely. . . . This important book should be read carefully and put into practice by all global citizens.”

ASHOK GANGADEAN
Founder-Director of the Global Dialogue Institute
Co-Convenor of the World Commission on Global Consciousness and Spirituality

 

“The work of Adi Da invites humanity to step through a portal into the nature of Reality Itself. With the power and poise of a true spiritual master, Adi Da uses this book to plant the seeds for a morally enlightened civilization based in the principle of prior unity, rather than in separation, domination, and control. At times fierce, at times gentle, Adi Da’s teachings shine like a bright star of hope that humanity can use to navigate its way forward. In humanity’s curriculum, this book is required reading.”

DUSTIN DIPERNA
Author, Streams of Wisdom

 

“In this book, Adi Da powerfully and elegantly cuts through the collective delusion of separateness upon which modern society is founded. He calls for the establishment of a Global Cooperative Forum based on the presumption of our prior, underlying, and inherent unity. He writes his wisdom into a time on this planet when, if we do not all start acting, all at once, for the common good, life on this planet will become unlivable for all of us. This book establishes the essential foundation for a new cooperative world order arising from the unity which is prior to our diversity.”

BOB ANDERSON
Founder and Chairman, The Leadership Circle

 

“Adi Da quietly arrives on the doorstep of the evolution of consciousness, revealing, step by step, what is required to sustain humanity and this beautiful planet. We should all be very interested in the mysterious state of “prior unity”. Let us invest in this work of genius immediately. Let us never put this book on the shelf. It is a living document, forever active.”

“This extraordinary collection of illuminating essays offers a deep diagnosis of humanity’s predicament. The cure Adi Da prescribes, based on higher laws, is simultaneously radical, urgent, and straightforward. Adi Da’s is a uniquely authentic and compelling voice in this global age.”

ROLF C. CARRIERE
Former UN official, Senior Adviser to the Nonviolent Peaceforce

 

“Through the ages, people have struggled with the idea that consciousness and being are a priori to physical manifestation. Today, our awareness of timeless union and inner value finds fragmented expression in a myriad of linear phenomena that we take for reality, including sovereign boundaries, property rights, market prices, interest rates, cyclical bubbles, and externalities such as pollution, poverty, social conflict, terrorism, and war. In this visionary and epochal book, Adi Da reminds us that humanity is already always a mass subjective unity and beckons us to fully externalize this conscious interconnectivity and ontological interdependence through our economic, social, and political institutions and collective decision-making.”

JAMES B. QUILLIGAN
Managing Director, Economic Democracy Advocates

 

Not-Two Is Peace is Adi Da’s urgent wake-up call to all men and women of conscience. Now is the time to bring together all our diverse gifts and talents into one shared project to make our world fit for all human beings to inhabit. We are united by the same need to live free of want, free of fear, and free to live a life of dignity. At the heart of the human condition lies the recognition that freedom for one must mean freedom for all. Peace is the prime directive. Peace is prior unity. The Global Cooperative Forum is the way.”

HILDE RAPP
Co-Director, Centre for International Peacebuilding, London

 

“At this critical moment in the history of the human family, when the very foundations of civilization are being challenged, there is a message of compassion being spoken by one grounded in enduring wisdom and true discernment. In Not-Two Is Peace, Adi Da writes of the urgent need for a new form of global discourse, based on the recognition of the underlying unity of humankind. Such discourse would renew the ideals that originally underlay the foundation of the United Nations. And it would require humankind as a whole to listen to the ordinary people all over the world who are in dire need of greater human security.”

BRYAN DESCHAMP
Former Senior Adviser, United Nations High Commission for Refugees

 

“At the Dawn of this New Divine Springtime, Beloved World-Friend Adi Da clearly enunciates the Sacred State of Consciousness—Prior Unity and Oneness—needed to actualize a Global Cooperative Forum, a dynamic and vital step toward Universal Peace, long prophesied by the Ancient Ones. Without a doubt, through the Everywhere Spirit that is manifesting in digital technology, we will unify “everybody-all-at-once” and take this historic step together, with One Heart and One Mind in many bodies.”

Not-Two Is Peace contains wisdom that can transform the current and ongoing world crises that so desperately need effective conflict resolution. If truly acted upon, what Adi Da advocates has the power to bring an end to the horrors and suffering that are the result of our mad need to differentiate between “us” and “them”.”

“Adi Da’s poignant and profound Not-Two Is Peace reminds us to rise above prejudice to seek commonality over differences. We are living on a planet of increasingly finite resources. Adi Da reminds us of the interconnectivity of all things that ultimately binds us to each other and our planet.”

LAURENCE BRAHM

Senior International Fellow, Centre for China and Globalization

 

“In a world beset with innumerable challenges, Not-Two Is Peace offers a new vision for the future. Adi Da emphasizes “prior unity” as the basis for our decisions and actions. If we proceed with putting the interests of the whole of humanity first, then there is the possibility of growth and development for the nearly seven billion people on the planet, not just a privileged minority. Such wisdom cannot be ignored.”

SAM PITRODA
Chairman, National Knowledge Commission of India

 

“Adi Da offers not just one peace-making strategy among others. He goes deeper, reminding us that the very concept of “other” is a false basis from which to begin. He is right to insist that we must go beyond seeming divisions to the deeper reality that there is one singular whole of which all existence is, and always was, a part. His recognition and articulation of this “prior unity” offers a guiding light on the path forward.”

SISTER MAKRINA FINLAY, OSB

 

“Adi Da demonstrates the illusion we are living in and the separateness and greed that run both nations and large institutions, thereby affecting our lives. He presents a blueprint for a world that works but also points out the steps each individual can and must take to transcend the ego. His book is both visionary and practical, showing that cooperation is the only road available to us to avoid total destruction.”

“A new kind of human consciousness is requiredbased on the working-presumption of prior unity, and on an understanding of the indivisibly single world in which everyone is living. This involves not only the notion that there is such a single world, but it requires grasping the necessity for cooperation, and the necessity to function on the basis of an understanding that the Earth is a single system, and humankind (likewise) is a single whole.”
