Become Part of the Solution is a heartfelt plea for us all to wake up from the slumber of ignorance. We cannot keep denying the countless warnings that can be heard as the earth cries out, nor can we ignore the divisions and disintegration increasingly visible in our communities and society. We cannot overlook the growing tensions in our personal relationships and the increasing mental health problems, stampeding through our schools, homes and work environments.
Hamilton suggests in this book that we cannot continue on our current course because if we do there will be no world to save. What he suggests is that we stop contributing to the problem and find ways, however small, to become part of the solution.
His formula is clear, simple and powerful. He explains how everything is connected and that only by having respect and reverence for the relationships between all things can we find a solution to our current ailments. At every stage he champions the idea that mind, body, spirit and environment must be considered equally if we are to find lasting solutions. Hamilton suggests we have to let go of the idea that any one thing will bring about our restoration. We have to understand the need for synergy and become synergists.
This is a journey we all need to take because the sands of time are slipping through our fingers and we cannot afford to stand by and do nothing. It’s time to join those who are marching to the beat of positive change.
“It always seems impossible until it’s done”.
Nelson Mandela (1918 – 2013)
