Reflections ~ Tom Ferguson

Reflections is a collection of insightful and well written essays that blends the wisdom of ancient scriptural verses with a modern perspective on psychology, spirituality and relationships. The result is a set of captivating and easy-to-read missives that encourages us to rethink our assumptions about some of life’s most profound mysteries.

I suspect you’ll notice a common theme throughout the essays. Specifically that the ultimate human potential is personal happiness, and that spiritual growth holds the key to that elusive goal. Thus, in a sense, Reflections offer insights into where happiness comes from, where it does not come from, what we’re doing to prevent happiness in our lives and how we might change that.

While author, Tom Ferguson, frequently uses scripture verses from the New Testament or other sources as a spring-board for reflection, it’s clear he is not promoting any particular religious tradition. Quite the contrary, Reflections seeks to transcend any specific religious tradition in search of a more unifying dimension of spirituality. The essays are in no particular order, so if a particular chapter strikes a chord with you or piques your interest you may want to start there and see where the reading leads you.

Tom Ferguson was born in Philadelphia, PA in 1962. In his mid-teens he became fascinated by the subject of happiness and became an avid reader and writer on the topic in the years since. His first book, Reflections, began as a series of emails and essays written to friends with whom he shared a passion for philosophy and spirituality. From there it transformed into a blog and ultimately evolved into an e-book with the encouragement of blog subscribers, friends and family members who found his missives both insightful and entertaining. Since early childhood he has lived in Colorado Springs, CO where he enjoys running, wellness, meditation …. and happiness.

The Turning Point: Creating Resilience in a Time of Extremes by Gregg Braden [updated Feb 3, 2014]

There’s a time when every crisis can become transformation; when simply surviving can become joyous thriving. In our lives that time is The Turning Point. In our world that time is now!

We live in a time of extremes. And because the conditions of global finance, markets, resources, and jobs touch so much of our lives, we can no longer separate our everyday routines from the extremes of the world. The crises of climate change, extreme weather, and failing economies, for example, translate directly into the cost of the fuel that gets us back and forth to work each day; the interest we pay on our loans and that we’re in turn paid on our savings; the loss of neighborhood businesses and local jobs; and the closing of factories, with the many benefits they bring to our communities. All of this means that our lives are changing in ways we’ve never seen in the past, and they’re changing faster than we’ve been prepared to deal with.
The good news is that nature gives us the key to turn the frightening Tipping Points of such extremes into life-affirming Turning Points of transformation.

Fact: The solutions to our biggest problems already exist!

Fact: We already have the technology and the means to adapt to the extremes!

Fact: All that stands between the suffering of the present and the world transformed is the shift in thinking that allows the existing solutions into our lives.
In this compelling new work, best-selling author and visionary Gregg Braden merges his expertise in leading-edge science with present-day realities to answer the questions on everyone’s minds: What’s causing the extremes in our world? What do the global trends mean in our personal lives? How do we make everyday life better for us and our families? Through his powerful synthesis of easy-to-understand science and real-world circumstances, Gregg uniquely:

1. Identifies the facts underlying the crises of personal, as well as global, change.
2. Describes new scientific discoveries that hold the key to turning global crises into personal transformation.
3. Reveals simple strategies of resilient thinking for our finances and lifestyles and resilient living for our families and communities as we navigate the greatest shift in power, wealth, and resources in the modern world!

Will we choose the Turning Point to the greatest transformation of living and thinking the world has ever seen?
