Our Evolution

Listening List

Below are two lists of books that we recommend most highly and one list of documentaries that illuminate the unprecedented changes that are occurring on our planet. There are 15 in each list and they have become an integral part of the Ourglass perspective. If you wish to understand what drives and inspires us, dive in!


It is very intentional that the Evolution of Consciousness list comes before the Global Perspective and Climate Change list. This is vital, because without first having an inward shift in awareness that elevates us beyond the realm of right and wrong, or good vs evil, we may look around the world and be paralyzed by anger, guilt and fear. These frequencies will do nothing except create more of the same reactive and unconscious human behavior patterns that have been playing out for centuries. It is only by causing an evolution in our collective consciousness, where enough of us realize that beyond this seemingly physical reality there is an interconnected web of energy that connects all of us to everything that ever has been and ever will be, that we can co-create the harmonious collective mind of humanity. These books are not about finding a new belief system; they are about shifting our attention from the illusion of duality to the realization and experience of unity. They show us how to live a life of excellence that is filled with joy, love, creative expression and with a focus on an internal acceptance of each moment. From this frequency, we can go out and create a new global network that is starkly different from anything humanity has ever cultivated. Without an inner shift, we will simply magnify the forces that we are trying to move beyond, because when we judge and oppose something, we aid in concentrating its power. Instead of manifesting a completely new collective co-creation, we have been asleep in the dream world of duality, forgetting that we are not merely flesh-mobiles having a spiritual experience within our mind, but at our core, we are each infinite consciousness manifesting as all that is, in the midsts of a global human awakening. We would be wise to be aware of the largest global challenges if we want to create intelligent real world solutions to them, and it would likely be most fruitful to focus on the love, stillness and beauty that is always present at the deepest levels of reality if we want to bring those vibrations into this seemingly physical sense-perceived frequency of subjective experience.

This may seem a bit out there for some, but the current dominating paradigm of the Globilization of profit driven endless growth that we have all been conditioned to blindly accept is destroying the only planet that we know of that is habitable for human life. There are few things that are more out there than that. Thank you for questioning your education-indoctrination-conditioning and for taking your education into your own hands. You can use the material below as a guideline, but follow your heart, intuition, and highest excitement; seek out books and information sources that resonate with your highest self.
