Prince Harry's book 'SPARE' ushers in the new era of authentic living and leading

Updated: Jan 25, 2023

Prince Harry’s book SPARE ushers in the new era of authentic living and leadership.

The release of the book SPARE[i], a memoir of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, has broken all records in the UK and elsewhere[ii].

Prince Harry’s book has garnered attention worldwide with its disclosures about his personal struggles and accusations about other royals, including his father King Charles, stepmother Camilla, and elder brother Prince William.

Shattering the 'glass ceiling'

With this book, the proverbial 'glass ceiling', that previously prevented us from speaking out against traditional institutions and the people that keep them in place, is shattered.

The reason for the 'glass ceiling' is that speaking up and speaking out comes with a price - even a great sacrifice. Harry and Meghan were prepared to pay that price for their happiness.

In his book, Prince Harry outlines how he and Meghan needed to choose between the lavish lifestyle in the royal family but would be detrimental to their personal and family well-being - or - leaving the royal family to live a life of authenticity and personal well-being. They chose the latter.

Worldwide reaction

The reaction worldwide spans from very negative and condemning the book, to praise and gratitude towards Prince Harry for being open, honest, standing up, and speaking out.

The question is, why is this book causing such an upheaval? is there more profound significance to the book SPARE?

We can find some answers by understanding the current fundamental change and transformation taking place as part of the Great Timeline Shift.

What is the Great Timeline Shift?

To answer this question, we have to go to the big-picture view of who we are, where we are, and what is currently happening especially on a fundamental human level as well as on a cosmic level.

Every cosmic season on the cosmic clock lasts 2000 earth years. Our current time scale starts with the birth of Jesus Christ as the Year of our Lord – year 0. This cosmic era ended in 2000.

The transitions from one era to another take approximately 150 years – that is two to three generations. We are part of the transitional generations.

During the Great Timeline Shift, everything of the old that was relevant in that era, disintegrates and makes place for the new. This includes humanity’s shift, right down to the DNA level. We are even experiencing a DNA shift, the activation of new genetic potential[iii] as we speak. This is all happening without most people even being aware of this.

The question is, a shift from what to what?

Radical fundamental change

Change is taking place at the roots of our existence. We are being re-rooted and re-routed.

A new season of fundamental values that include honesty, truth, integrity, love, compassion, and authenticity has been emerging over the last few decades. More and more people are becoming aware of the authentic self. We are moving from the old foundation of value placed in tradition and structures to value placed in people, love, and their authentic self-expression.

Within the old era, old values and belief systems and their structures, although loveless and stagnant, need to be kept in place at all costs. The reason is that the very identity of the people involved is at stake. There will therefore be resistance to the emerging of the new era with its new foundation of love, compassion, and authenticity including authentic self-expression.

The book SPARE, by Prince Harry, has spearheaded the breakthrough from the old era with its traditional values, stagnant structures, and loveless systems to the new era of authenticity.

The world will never be the same again.

The question is, what can we expect to happen from here on?

The future

There is no turning back. There is only one of two possibilities from hereon.

Or you choose to keep on supporting the old – or you are willing to open yourself to the infinite possibilities of the new era of authenticity that is now here. For some this could be an easy transition, for others, this could be a major leap.

For others, it could pose a major threat as the old systems crumble and their very existence is threatened.

The future will be determined by the choices you make. Or you choose to stay behind with the old, or you can move forward with the new era of health, wealth, happiness, success, and fulfillment found in authenticity.

The family battle is symbolic.

The family battle between Meghan and Harry on the one side and the ‘The Firm’ on the other is symbolic of the conflict between the old and the new.

Each one of us will also need to choose. There is only one of two choices. Or you stay with the old and struggle to keep in place. Or you stand up, take back your investment in old outworn mindsets, heart-sets, and value systems and live a life of authenticity that includes authentic self-expression.

In the end, we all become authentic leaders as we show the way to health, wealth, happiness, and success, that comes with living a life of authenticity.

The only thing keeping you back is the fear of what you might lose. This is a barrier each one would need to overcome for themselves.
