The Golden Motorcycle Gang: A Story of Transformation
Have you ever asked yourself why you are on planet Earth? And what the ultimate purpose for your life might be? Well, Jack Canfield asked himself this very question and came up with a surprising answer—part of which included a vision revealing that he is part of a “Golden Motorcycle Gang”—a gang whose intent is to have fun, but also to make significant contributions to the well-being of humanity.
During a joyful dinner many years ago in Santa Barbara, California, Jack told his friend William Gladstone about the Gang. Upon hearing this account, William had an epiphany that Jack’s story held a powerful underlying truth not only explaining Jack’s true purpose, but William’s as well. For more than ten years, William encouraged Jack to write a book based on the story of the Gang, so they have now collaborated on this work to show you its relevance to this critical moment in the history of human civilization . . . and also to you, personally. As you read, you will be introduced to some of the extraordinary members of the Golden Motorcycle Gang, including visionary thinkers such as Barbara Marx Hubbard, the originator of the concept of Conscious Evolution.
The mystery and adventure inherent in this book reveals that there is now the opportunity for all of us on planet Earth to make a quantum leap in real time toward choosing the actual course of our evolution. Along the way, we are meant to experience the joy that comes from recognizing who we really are.
Perhaps, as you embark on Jack’s journey along with him . . . you will find that you are also a member of the Golden Motorcycle Gang! So get ready for the adventure of your life!
This book is a combination of parable, memoir, insider's view of the transformational movement, and a rallying cry to take our places as world citizens and birth a new future for our planet. You can't pigeonhole it, so just enjoy it. It's a fast and compelling read and it offers a pretty intimate spiritual portrait of Jack Canfield. Although the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books have made him a household name, not to mention a considerable fortune, one didn't get a sense of the person behind them. That's why I was so pleased, in the "Golden Motorcycle Gang," to learn something about his background and to discover that he's a really nice guy who earned his chops teaching school in the inner cities. He seems to genuinely come from the heart, and has walked his talk with consistency and integrity throughout his life. He was the founder of the Transformational Leadership Council, and today he is one of the leading figures in the transformational movement.
"The Golden Motorcycle Gang" in the title, is a charming device that refers to the spiritual standard bearers of enlightened thinking springing up everywhere and coming together with a sense of recognition and a twinkle in the eye. Visionaries like Canfield and Barbara Marx Hubbard embody a common intent to energize our evolution as a society. They invite us all to rally around and join what is arguably one of the most important movements in our history - the struggle for a positive future for us all. If you're reading this, you may already be a member of the gang... vroom, vroom.
