Finding Your Calling

Jul 24, 2008
Dr. Barbara Marx Hubbard, daughter of Louis Marx, the legendary toy tycoon, didn't need her father's name to get her own in history. Barbara is one of the most well-known leaders in conscious evolution and futuristic thought. Her five books include, "The Hunger of Eve", "The Evolutionary Journey", "The Revelation: Our Crisis Is a Birth", "Conscious Evolution: Awakening the Power of Our Social Potential", and "Emergence: The Shift from Ego to Essence, Ten Steps to the Universal Human".

Barbara has been busy during the past few decades. The 1960's saw the publication of "The Center Letter" which was one of the first newsletters about evolutionary transformation. In the 70's, Barbara founded The Committee for the Future, and in the 80's, she served as a diplomat in the former Soviet Union to pioneer a Soviet-American Citizen Summit. This was based on the SYNCON model, or SYNergistic CONvergence.

Barbara has played a role in the founding of many organizations. Some of them include the World Future Society, New Dimensions Radio, Global Family, Women of Vision and Action, the Foundations for the Future, and the Association for Global New Thought. She was one of the original contributors to the Salk Institute with Dr. Jonas Salk, and at one point, Barbara was even nominated for Vice President of the United States.

Barbara Marx Hubbard has eight grandchildren, so it's hard to believe she has time for anything new. She believes you become more creative the longer you live. As a matter of fact, Barbara developed "Gateway to Conscious Evolution" with Theresa Collins, and now she is producing a documentary in seven parts called "Humanity Ascending: A New Way through Together".

Barbara Marx was born in 1929 and married Earl Hubbard when she was in her mid-teens. Growing up, toys were everywhere she turned because she was the daughter of a toy maker. She even had toys from competing companies. She always knew that sort of materialistic lifestyle wasn't for her, so when she was only fifteen, she began seeking something more fulfilling.

Barbara's search to find more in life led to a dead end very quickly. Each time an idea would pop into her mind, she would have another baby. Although she loved being a wife and mother, it wasn't fulfilling to her. Back in the 50's, even educated women spent most of their time at home.

A local Freudian psychiatrist called Barbara "neurotic" because she wanted more from life than being a wife and mother. After reading from some of the great thinkers and writers like Maslow, Buckminster Fuller, and Teilhard de Chardin, she finally figured out what her driving force had been all these years: a force of creation.

Out of pure desperation, and years before the women's liberation movement, Barbara called Abraham Maslow on the phone to invite him to lunch. From a tiny spark in her mind came a raging inferno of ideas, and she would never be the same. From that day forward, Barbara went where ever her feet led her. What's keeping your feet still?
