Translates the principles of quantum physics and metaphysics into practical tools that we can use to transform ourselves, our communities, and our worldview.

Barnes &
Enough for Us All

Translates the findings of quantum physics and the life sciences into practical tools that we can use to transform ourselves, our communities, and our worldview. Lots of practical exercises help readers shift their focus from scarcity to abundance, and from fear to joy.


What liberates us from our own fear is knowledge, an understanding of who we really are and what is possible for us. Our lives are so often driven by old paradigms and outmoded assumptions. If we are to emerge into our potential, we need to be able to identify those limiting misconceptions so that we can choose how we wish to change them.
The astonishing findings of quantum physics have become clearer over the past 100 years; and yet we remain mired in the limiting beliefs of Newtonian physics. Whether or not we remember studying classical physics, its assumptions permeate our everyday thinking—concepts like duality, determinism, linear cause and effect, innate competition, and an anthropocentric (human-centered) view of the world. As a result, we experience ourselves as small and powerless, at the mercy of global warming and accelerating violence.
But our actual reality is quite different. Together we will explore the ramifications of being interconnected, of creating reality through our observations, of understanding time as relative and nonlinear, and of living in a dynamic and nondualistic universe. We will also look at how to expand our awareness to recognize all life forms as equal partners, examine the truths of our interdependence, and make a case for cooperation as the keynote by which we survive and thrive. This journey, if you choose to take it, will lead you through fear to hope, through scarcity to abundance.

Principles of Abundance for the Cosmic Citizen
Science and metaphysics are brought together in this compelling statement of the principles that underlie our reality and the manner in which we co-exist as cosmic citizens. Metaphysics teaches, and science is confirming, that we are all interconnected energy waves that only have the appearance of being distinctly separate from each other, that we actually do create our own reality, and that our experience is fundamentally non-linear, complex, and non-dualistic. As Dr. Dorothy I. Riddle points out, both metaphysics and science recognize that we survive because of our ability to adapt and collaborate with others who are also part of the interdependent community of life, and that we all evolve through a process of symbiosis and cooperation.
“Moving beyond a preoccupation with our own personal desires and grasping the reality of our interconnection holds the key to our survival as a species,” Dr. Riddle writes. She adds, “If we assume…that our reality is intertwined, the good news is that we live in a sea of cosmic energy vast in its potential to support and uphold us…as long as we learn to give back.”
Principles of Abundance for the Cosmic Citizen, volume one of Riddle’s three-volume series is a profound, yet sensitive exploration of the above ideas and their ramifications. The author brings a deep understanding of fields as diverse as biology, cosmology, psychology, economics, physics, and metaphysics to the discussion of a planetary and cosmic citizenship marked by equity, respect, and abundance.
Riddle declares that the concept of scarcity is a myth based in fear and fed by the belief that “more is better.” She also brings readers the timely message that continuous growth is not sustainable and points out the benefits, to individuals and to humankind as a whole, of learning to value the quality of one’s life over the quantity of one’s possessions. The creation of a life that is outwardly simpler, yet inwardly richer may well be the key to a greater and more widespread experience of the original definition of “wealth,” which described the state of prosperity as a sense of happiness, well being, and joy.
The author presents accessible explanations of the principles of quantum physics that, in her capable hands, turn into tools for transformation. Together with exercises designed to help readers expand their awareness of the meaning, rights, and responsibilities of cosmic citizenship, she offers comforting evidence that we are part of a world in which all life forms are equal partners.
Riddle is a psychologist and economic development specialist. She has worked and taught in more than seventy-five developing countries and is engaged in building bridges of understanding between diverse groups of people so that all may experience justice and equity. [5 stars]

Principles of Abundance for the Cosmic Citizen
Dorothy I. Riddle brings the reader to a state of self actualization with brilliant observations coupled with persuasive arguments on the subject of existence in Principles of Abundance for the Cosmic Citizen: Enough for Us All, Volume One.
Expertly written with hundreds of cohesive summaries of other quoted intellectuals, writers, philosophers and scientists, Dr. Riddle reveals to the reader an array of research and evidence to support her views. In an easy to understand style, she introduces most every current theory of cognitive awareness; whether established science or contemporary vision dealing with existence of the essence of sentient life. One is left in awe seeing the world through her kaleidoscope of newly defined angles, a virtual disco-ball of intellectual reflections, and laser beam clarity of thought.
The “Cosmic Citizen” is defined as each of us, always having been and always will be, but now evolving to a point of realizing our role. We are made of stardust, within the zero-sum universe, or Metaverse; the closer part of the universe we dwell within, our cosmic neighborhood, so to speak. We are simply changing the states of matter and energy to create or alter all that we are. As such, Dr. Riddle states we all need to share responsibilities for being aware of the needs of others. We have the responsibility of grooming others to think more clearly and avoid the pitfalls of greed. She further states we need to act free from vested interests and be open to change to become the inspired cosmic citizen. The ultimate point of what Dorothy I. Riddle defines is for all of us to grasp the reality of our interconnection to each other. She further claims this “holds the key to our survival as a species.” She writes, “If we assume that our reality is individual and separate, that our core motivation is competitive self-interest, and that change occurs linearly and primarily on the material plane, our search for answers will be limited and ultimately unsuccessful.” The good news is, she stated, “… we live in the embrace of a cosmic sea of energy vast in its potential to support and uphold us…as long as we learn to give back.”
Noticeably absent is any theological overtone, or even the mention of God for that matter. Furthermore, the Michael Douglas character in Wall Street where he states, “Greed is good,” would be the antithesis for her cosmic citizen; as anyone consuming more than needed is depriving others. She is not professing a political platform such as Communism even though she partitions the total sum of everything equally to all individuals. Dorothy I. Riddle does make many justifiable conclusions as peaceful co-existence of all living entities have inherent rights of survival. The Principles of Abundance for the Cosmic Citizen encompasses fundamentally commonly articulated theological “Commandants” written as scientific prose.
I recommend this book for its mental challenges, the unique reading experience, a self-awareness awakening, and to lead towards achieving contentedness in one’s own life. In this, the first of three volumes on related issues, Dr. Riddle certainly has done “her homework” researching her subject matter – of all matter, for that matter.
