In a world seeking moral leadership, Twelve Principles proposes ways by which we can live responsibly, reappraise our values and develop a world consciousness. These times of great change challenge us to reconsider the values by which we live. Our pursuit of materialism has delivered vast inequalities in wealth, the destructive consequences of climate change, and ever-increasing divisions between peoples and countries. It is a time when many are questioning the wisdom of the prevailing ethos. Martin Hawes proposes twelve principles by which we can live responsibly in the world today. Inspired by the teachings of the humanist thinker, J. Krishnamurti, these principles are applicable at a global as well as a personal level. They are based on living with awareness, acting with integrity and appreciating our interrelationship with all life. To illustrate these precepts in practice, the author includes profiles of twelve people from around the world who are effecting positive change in their own lives and communities. By showing us what is possible, they inspire us all. Includes a foreword by Senator Bob Brown, leader of the Australian Greens.
