In The Sacred Revival Kingsley L. Dennis describes a new form of energy that has entered our postindustrial epoch, fulfilling one of humanity’s greatest needs―a connection with the transcendent. Now a new phase of development is emerging, a revival of an evolutionary, participatory-style consciousness. The Sacred Revival examines some of the sacred manifestations of this new age within social memes, popular culture, and revised projections of myth and magic. As we step further toward a planetary civilization where technologies are an extension of ourselves, Dennis discusses how each individual can act as a conscious agent in order to manifest their own sense of a sacred self, and how to influence and be a part of the grander sacred order. The Sacred Revival is an inspiring, thought-provoking, and forward-thinking examination of social, cultural, and personal development that is part of the newly unfolding era.
The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed.
Re-enchanting the World
When we look up into the night sky and see the sparkle of stars, we are awed and enchanted. There is grace, there is wonder, and there is the excitement of the unknown. Everything comes alive with possibility. There is an enchanted world out there, and it beckons to us through a communal mystery. And we wish to respond to that call, for underlying all life is the urge for meaning. As human beings we desire, long for, need a sense of meaning and purpose in our lives. An enchanted universe serves to entice us with a feeling of belonging. Yet somewhere along the way we lost the sense of communion.
