Living in the light is about the transformation of consciousness within each individual and in the world. Shakti makes use of the terms "old world " and "new world" throughout the book as a way of referring to the old way of life that we are leaving behind and the new one that we are creating.

For many people, this time may be distressing, because the world situation and/or our personal lives may seem to be going from bad to worse. 

She indicates how our established religious institutions support the fear of the intuition, nonrational self.  Once based on a deep awareness of the universal creative principle in evey being, many religions only pay lip service to that idea now. Instead, they seek to control the behavior of their devotees, using elaborate rule structures purported to save people from their deep, irrational, and basically "sinful" natures.

She states that generally, "less technically developed societies approach life with a deep awareness of and respect for the intuitive element of existence.  Every nuance of their daily lives is guided by a strong sense of connection with the creative force. And the African culture forcibly brought to this continent, has probably done more than any other culture to keep the intuitive power alive in our country through its strong spirit". 

Shakti shares with us that "our children come into the world as clear beings. They know who they are and what they are here to do. I believe on some level of consciousness, parents and child have made an agreement, The parent has agreed to support and assist the child in developing his/her form and the child has agreed to help the parents to be more in touch with their intuitive selves. Because children have not yet lost their connection to their spirit."
