WHOLE AND ONE

Seeing and being the World

The world is whole and one. We human beings are not.
There are serious errors in our ego-system.
They prevent us from seeing the world as it is.
Our worldview is based on false assumptions.
There is no separate self. We literally are the world.
The universe is one unbroken movement.
We are different, but not separate.

We can solve the global problems if we find the root cause and eliminate it.
The good news is: we have the tools to solve the world crisis.
The bad news is: we do not use them.
We need a thought sense and a new agenda.
When we see the world directly, we are one with the whole.

Whole and One invites you to see and be the world.
The radical insights of David Bohm challenge our worldview
and take us to a world where egos cannot enter.

Let's make the world whole!
We need a new map of our mind. The story behind the book. The mission: to find and eliminate the root cause. Seeing directly changes our being.

Part 1 WHOLE: Seeing the world

1. What comes in, when you come in?

In helping others, we save our own life. Who do you think you are?
Identity is a trap set by our thoughts. Everything is enfolded into everything. Eliminating egotism. Manifesting the mystery. The wasted century.

2. Bohmian Rhapsody

Changing our assumptions. The invisible link. The long and winding road. From fragments to wholeness. There is no separation. Our active role in the whole.

3. No escape from reality
Everything is internally related. Always the same, never the same. Empty space is full of energy and information. The manmade chaos. Living in a mental cage. Focusing on facts. Good will is not good enough. Change starts from clarity. Is this the world we want?

4. One mind only

Jimi reinvented the guitar. Mind is a mystery. Show me the mind! Eight kinds of awareness. The 'me' is a mistake. Living on three levels. The atomistic model does not work. We are different, not separate. Emphasizing differences leads to separation. Connecting people. No need for control.

5. Thinking makes us so

The 21 Bohmian features of thinking. Who wins when all lose? Thoughts are faster than the self. Getting what we don't want.
Thought is a system. Two sides make one coin. Fix or wither!
The right to be right. Word is a button. The show must go on.

Part 2 ONE: Being the world

6. We need a thought sense

Winning the five fights. Because the sky is blue. Two steps to being whole. Up where we belong. The body knows. The sent and received message differ. Two routes to change. Use your tenth sense! Self is a show. Sailing the same stream. Memory is blind. Meaning is being.

7. Wanted: A new agenda
Greta's grief. Sketching out the source. Getting something else. Imagine the unknown. Identity is incoherent. Assumptions are loaded guns. Our brains don't get it. Stop growth. Go upstream! Find the blind zones. Winning the right game. The art of thinking together. In search of a hidden meaning. Change the question. Checking our priorities.

8. Being awake - now or never!

Meeting two myths. Break the ego pattern. The ending of time. Breaking the ego pattern. In words we trust - and are lost. Happy is free. The future is now. Loving without limits. Can the mind find the truth?

9. The world beyond

Connected to the cosmos. Being filled with beauty. Reaching the ground. Read between the lines. One million miracles. Something special.

10. Living right now

Winning the five fights. Start from where you are. Feel the pulse of the universe.
