A Kosmocentric Orientation

“A Kosmocentric orientation is when the individual realizes that he or she is not separate from the energy and intelligence that initiated the creative process. When we embrace this Kosmocentric orientation, we realize that I’m not here merely to live my own life. I’m not even really here for my own personal liberation. I’m here to create the future. Indeed, I find my own liberation as an incarnate sentient being through giving myself to that unimaginable task.” – Andrew Cohen

"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."

- Andrew Cohen
