The Whole Elephant Revealed

Insights into the existence and operation of Universal Laws and the Golden Ratio

by Marja de Vries

The Whole Elephant Revealed offers clear insights into the existence and operation of Universal Laws and the Golden Ratio. It is a systhesis based on common perceptions of wisdom traditions and recent scientific discoveries that are in line with those insights. The result reveals a whole new and coherent worldview. While everything in the universe works in harmony with these principles, we human beings have the freedom to choose to act contrary to or in harmony with these universal principles. This choice is hard to make though, if we don’t know those principles.
This book meets the need of a growing number of people who are looking for a clear and well-founded insight into these universal laws to be able to make conscious choices and co-create their world based on these insights. Because the nature of these principles is universal, they apply to all aspects of our individual and social life. Therefore they can be used as a frame of reference for all transformations which aim at a greater harmony within ourselves and with the greater whole.

Restoring balance in ourselves and worldwide

The Whole Elephant Revealed offers insight into the universal principles that underlie the harmony and the dynamic balance of the universe, of which we humans are a part. It also provides a framework within which the many different aspects of ourselves and of the world around us fall into place as pieces of a puzzle. An understanding of the operation of univeral laws helps us to understand how everything in this universe might be working in essence, who we really are and how we can apply these insights by consciously using our free will in our personal and social life.
In 1992 the Hopi elder Thomas Banyacya spoke to the United Nations General Assembly and pointed out that the imbalance all around us in our present world might be the result of - consciously or unconsciously - not acting in harmony with the Universal Laws, now and in the past. While everything in the universe works in harmony with these principles, we human beings find ourselves in the special position that we have our free will. Because of this we have the freedom to choose to act contrary to or in harmony with these laws. This choice is hard to make though, if we don’t know those principles. For that reason the rediscovery of the working of these principles seems to be of extreme importance in this time of great imbalance and worldwide changes. More and more people are beginning to feel the need for a clear and well-founded insight in these universal laws, which will make it possible to choose to consciously put these insights into practice in their life and activities.
Insight into these principles offers a useful framework for the challenges that we are facing at this moment and helps to get a better understanding of what is needed to restore the balance and harmony in ourselves as well as worldwide. This book also shows us what is needed for an optimal development of our consciousness at this special moment in the history of mankind.(The title refers to Sufi-story of the blind and the elephant).
