?SPAN class=quote>The Twenty-First Century is the time when the human race comes full circle. And endings invite new beginnings. In this new century the teachers will be those who have understood the mystery of themselves, as well as the mysteries of science and nature. They will be revealers rather than deceivers and inner-directed individuals rather than controlled and repressed role-players. They will be those who can provide healthy, functional solutions to the problems that have beset their brothers and sisters personally and collectively. These solutions will be rooted in the wisdom of the ancients and will afford us the ability to make those necessary quantum leaps toward authenticity of life and performance. The Twenty-First Century may also be a time when history, as we know and knew it, comes to an end. Indeed, the world around us is changing faster than ever. Some even think that time is 뱒peeding up.?As existentialist psychiatrist R. D. Laing wrote: We live in a moment of history where change is so speeded up that we begin to see the present only when it is already disappearing.?
