Making a Difference for 40 Years

The importance of "Our World Market" book

"OUR WORLD MARKET, The Generational Distinction, Our Connection To Life" was written by my husband, Robert Blazer, shortly after a good friend's unexpected passing.  Robert then realized the urgency of sharing this valuable information.  It is

his legacy.  The book was written in approximately six weeks

with the intention to document what he had discovered.

 

After many years of working with families from all over the globe,

he discovered a pattern that exists in every family.  He saw that fathers and sons were opposite in the way they contribute, and

that mothers and daughters were the same opposites in the way they contribute.  The words he uses to describe these differences are "expanding, space creating energy" and  "contracting, time creating energy".

 

We have taken these insights and applied them to our workforce, and have been able to achieve amazing results with people of

all different cultures working together in harmony.  Many of our

employees would tell you that this information not only makes their jobs more enjoyable, but that

it has had a profound affect on them and their families.  This information has allowed them to understand their children and their spouse in a way in which it was not possible before.

 

It is Robert's heartfelt desire to share this with all people.  I urge you to read it carefully and discuss

it with family members and closest friends so you can see it for yourselves.  It is  "the difference that makes the difference".

 ‘Our World Market’  readers share their experiences:

Robert Blazer has written this all encompassing book dedicated to the transformation of the individual, the group, and even the world as a whole.  It is for the students of life, who stand at the crossroads, at the place where two paths diverge.

 

One is the path of the individual, a well worn path indeed.  The mundane path of ego, materialism, scarcity, disconnect, and suffering. Where no one takes any responsibility for the way things are.  The continuous perpetuation of the downward spiral of humanity.

 

The other path is of the Generational Distinction. It stands alone as a way of understanding the complexities of human interactions, as it relates to the pair and group dynamic.  It also offers self discovery and mastery, in Robert’s explanation of the inherited world view.  The book offers relief in how to free oneself of this world view, through simple understanding. These concepts have been proven to work in the Dekalb Farmers Market, and my life as well.

 

The information, in this book, must not only be read and understood, but internalized.

 

I would like to thank Robert and Barbara Blazer for helping me on my path to this internalization. They are two of the kindest, intelligent people I have ever had the pleasure

of knowing. This book, and their efforts, have been instrumental in turning my life around.

It has meant so much to me and my family and I am eternally grateful.

 

Mike Williams, Market Customer

Before, I only believed in human beings as male and female.  Now I see from the generational distinction in the book that people have opposite energy: mothers and daughters are opposite energy and fathers and sons are opposite energy.  This means that both genders can be either expanding or contracting.

 

I also believe that the world is really designed to work.  I see that by working together with my partner who is opposite my energy.  I can create an idea for a project as an expanding energy person and my partner will work on completing the project as a contracting energy person.  Finally, together we can contribute different things to our work.

 

Before I understood the generational distinction, we used to blame each other by not understanding each other.  Now I understand who they are and who I am.  There is no

more blaming each other.

 

I see balance in my own family because I have a son and a daughter.  My daughter acts the same as I act because we are the same energy and my son acts the same as his mother because they are the same energy.  I understand them better because of the generational distinction.

In “Our World Market, The Generational Distinction,” Robert Blazer shares what he has learned from years of experience observing people and behavior and building a successful business heavily dependent on people working together.

 

The information in this book, when applied to work or personal relationships, can have a profound impact on productivity, relationships with others, understanding of others and self, and general well-being.  I found especially interesting the observations and explanations of people as either “expanding” or “contracting”.  Like yin and yang, expanding and contracting people are complementary opposites.

 

As the organizational structure at Your DeKalb Farmers Market demonstrates and as we have seen in our business, pairing expanding and contracting people together in the work place creates a team with balanced energy that capitalizes on the expanding person’s tendency to “think big” and the contracting person’s tendency to get the job done.

 

Robert also shows how these differences affect family relationships.  The book teaches how

to identify these variations in people, how these distinctions affect workplace and family relationships, and how to use this information for personal and professional benefit.

Thank you, Robert!

 

Mary Long, Market Customer and Attorney

Knowing the energy distinction as an expanding energy person makes me understand myself better.  As a space provider, I am coming from nothing to create something which is missing.

 

After knowing the distinction that mothers and daughters are opposite energy and fathers

and sons are opposite energy, my family life has changed and become stronger.  By knowing my son is the same energy as me, and my daughter’s energy is opposite me, we now have a different relationship, not blaming each other for the way we are, understanding each

other better and creating a more peaceful family life.  With my husband of 31 years, my relationship is better after knowing he is a contracting energy person.  He likes things to be the same all the time and is a timely person.

 

Learning about the organizational structure is a good thing to know, especially when you

have to deal with people.  Three level communication is useful in problem solving and achieving good results.

 

Partnership is a very important point: first, being with a partner makes each other feel

better, stronger, happier and able to take responsibility for things which we can accomplish together, creating strong relationships like family members.  Good partnerships create space for growing in business and as a human being.

 

Reti Canaj, Human Resources

“Our World Market” is a legacy of the truths that Robert has discovered in business and in life. He shares these discoveries as a gift to those desiring to live and work in harmony and

in peace – absent scarcity and suffering. What better application to these truths, than the diverse and successful Atlanta landmark, Your Dekalb Farmers Market, founded by Robert

in 1977!

 

The generational and gender maxims presented are profound and seem unchallengeable in explaining human and organizational relationships. Knowledge is freeing, when you see and apply new understanding to improve family and work relationships.  His explanation of dual and opposite energy and how generations are distinguished is not only enlightening but fun to see in place within my own family and coworkers.

 

I have a greater appreciation for my own self and those I know because of “Our World Market”.
