What books would you recommend to transcend Stage Orange? 


“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.” — L. P. Jacks

Also to master and fully integrate.

Perhaps any material/book/documentary that shows the dysfunction of stage orange i.e. the fallacies of consumer culture and the blindspots of current scientific ideology.

Psychedelics are also very practical books for that, when one feels ready. :)

I get what you mean, but we aren’t really colors...which that book so elegantly & poignantly articulates. SD’s is a great pointer, but a poor identifier. ? (don’t forget to laugh).

A lot of people love Eckhart Tolle

I could be wrong, But I don't feel like you master, integrate, transcend, and include spiral dynamics paradigms simply by reading about the next one. It can be helpful though.

 

What helped me to master, integrate, transcend, and include orange was to actually work on accomplishing something. Studying strategy, production capacity, and production. I would actually recommend a lot of stage orange books so that you can satisfy your desire for personal achievement. That way you can transcend orange in a visceral way. So that personal achievement doesn't carry much weight at all in how you unconsciously run your life.

Frankly, Green is all about the feels.  The equality, the compassion, the empathy, the environment, opportunity, fairness, humility.  You really need to go mingle with lots of green people to understand where they're coming from on this stuff.  Go hang out with hippies, go to Burning Man, go to cities like Seattle and Austin.  Books aren't going to get you far in Green, IMO.  Psychedelics will help a LOT if used well.

Now, word of caution, I'd recommend simultaneously leveling up on Green AND Yellow.  Green has some really ugly excesses that present in radical social justice warriors and Bernie Sanders style economics.  These are not very healthy for you or for the world.  Get to Yellow as fast as possible - multi-perspectivalism is the first time you are approaching real "freedom" of thought and development, and the first time you can really hold ideas without clinging to them.

Also, for a perfect example of the "world" of Green values, watch Queen's Gambit.  It is basically Green's wet dream for society.  It also is a beautiful case study on Green's naivety.

Have you integrated the teachings of Orange first? 
 

what’s your finances like? Your investment knowledge? Your career? Do you have practical survival skills? 
 

of course we want to evolve past toxic capitalism & consumerism, but don’t put the cart before the horse too early!

I don't actually see myself transcending Orange just by reading books. My purpose in reading Green books is to expand my perspective and exclude the unhealthy manifestations of Orange. 

 

I still have some consumerism in me. I want to buy a Tesla and own a big house. 

 

I know logically, that material possessions won't make me happy, but I still have this underlying desire for them. I want to renounce materialism altogether.

@Vision I get you, that’s great you want to Expand perspectives & branch out.

Just because material possessions won’t make you absolutely happy doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them & they don’t serve a purpose though. 
 

Im not saying you shouldn’t as everyone is unique, but don’t feel like you HAVE to renounce all possessions and live in a cave to be happy, you can be happy & enjoy material possessions, like a nice car, without needing them for your happiness, remember we’re here to enjoy life, so don’t force yourself to do stuff you know you’ll hate!

@LfcCharlie4 Of course. I've just noticed that I have an attachment to it. I want to renounce that attachment. 

@DocWatts Thanks
