“We live in rather extraordinary times, if you think about it. We have first of all, access to literally all of the World’s great living traditions, which has never, ever, ever happened before, any time in history. So we are blessed to be able to, in a sense, experiment, and mine, the various ways that Spirit, in the past, has chosen to make itself known. And we’re all basically pooling what understanding, what resources we have in order to engage in, arguably, the greatest adventure there is; that’s the adventure of consciousness – the adventure of waking up. The adventure of going so deep into yourself that you stumble and fall into infinity… It’s an extraordinary, extraordinary adventure. I can’t think of anything like it.” – Ken Wilber
“The fruits of the works of the spiritually realised man or woman is living proof that the spirit is real.” – Andrew Cohen. “It’s very hard to be materialistic, because love, beauty, joy, enthusiasm, none of this belongs to materials. Happiness is not a material thing…” – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
This discussion was conducted at EnlightenNext London with biologist, Rupert Sheldrake.
“Our minds link us to the wider world with every act of perception. Our minds connect us with the environment beyond us. And to think otherwise is a habit of thought that goes against our most immediate experience.” – Rupert Sheldrake
“The way I like to look at it is that we have this bank of consciousness, and we’re all human capital. And we’re all kind of depositing into this bank of consciousness. The question is, ‘What will we do with it?’, ‘What comes next?’. We have an opportunity here to take.” – Judy Martin, host journalist.
“And one day, it seems, the connectivity of the clusters of the imaginal cells reaches a critical mass, or a tipping point, and on that day a gene that has been lying asleep, wakes up. And it has the information code for a butterfly, and so a butterfly emerges. The biologist who explained this to me said ‘It’s like you took your bicycle to the repair shop, and then you went to pick it up and there was a gulf stream jet waiting for you!’ … and here we are, a cluster of creative cells… the next step is to connect these clusters.” – Deepak Chopra
