Faith, Gratitude, and Consensus

348 pages3 hours


This book explores faith for today, gratitude for tomorrow, and consensus for the future. Faith is described as trusting enough to share with others. Gratitude is described as an optimal emotional state. Consensus is described as the best form of decision making currently within our reach.

The chapters describe the layers of complexity which underlie faith, then gratitude, then consensus. The layers of faith are self, family, groupthink, roles, integrity, humanity, and ecology. The layers of emotions are confused, resentful, oppressed, numb, obligated, entitled, serene, vigilant, and grateful. The layers supporting consensus are autocracy, aristocracy, democracy, and representation. Consensus can be practiced with most levels of faith and most emotional states, but the results will only be maximized when we act with integrity and focus on gratitude.
