The Guru and The Pandit, Live in Denver: Creating new Structures in Consciousness

“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

"Traditionally, enlightenment has been defined as a profound awakening to the Ground of Being - an awakening in which the seeker finds liberation through transcending the world of time and space.

"But in the new enlightenment, which is redefined in an evolutionary context, the discovery of this primordial ground is not an end in itself. It becomes the essential foundation from which the individual is freed to participate wholeheartedly in the evolutionary process.

"What arises out of that ground is an impulse to evolve, which I call the Authentic Self, and the goal of Evolutionary Enlightenment is to liberate this creative principle in human consciousness so that it can transform us and the world around us."
