For example, we learned that the single-celled creatures of the oceans are the forerunner of all more complex forms of life. Like a fish is more complex hence more evolved than a sponge. A horse is more complex therefore more evolved than a snake etc. Author says that in other words, we have learned that evolution means the progressive development of organizational complexity.
The author says that “NO UNDERSTANDING OF EVOLUTION IS ADEQUATE THAT DOES NOT HAVE AT ITS CORE THAT WE ARE ON A JOURNEY TOWARD AUTHENTIC POWER, AND THAT AUTHENTIC EMPOWERMENT IS THE GOAL OF OUR EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS AND THE PURPOSE OF OUR BEINGS.” –Gary Zukav
Here author says that authentic power has its roots in the deepest source of our beings. Author says that authentic power cannot be bought, inherited or hoarded.
