Being and Becoming

“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

“There’s a big difference between how much any individual thinks they care, and how much any individual actually does care. How much anybody does care will always be revealed - seen, known and recognised by how an individual actually lives… by their actual day-to-day relationship to; the other, to the others, to life, to the universe, to the process. That’s the only way you can tell how much any individual cares is by how they live their life.”

- Andrew Cohen
