Creating the Future Unceasingly
Evolutionary Enlightenment is about awakening directly to the energy and intelligence that created the universe and is creating the universe. The Big Bang, the birth of the universe, was the unimaginably powerful expression of that energy and intelligence—and still is. The nature of what I call the “evolutionary impulse” is an ecstatic urgency that is always only interested in one thing: creating the future, giving rise to that which is new…unceasingly. What I call “Traditional Enlightenment,” on the other hand, is about awakening to timeless, formless Being—that primordial emptiness from which the entire creative process emerged 14 billion years ago. Before the universe was created there was no time and there was no space. That’s why when you enter into a very deep state of meditation you experience such deep peace. That’s because there you awaken to that deepest dimension of reality and of your own self that is always free from time and history. Traditional Enlightenment is about being free from history altogether. The new Evolutionary Enlightenment is about creating the future unendingly.
