How to Live an Enlightened Life
This is the final part of Andrew’s interview with Intent.com where he describes how the path and the goal of Evolutionary Enlightenment are one in the same:
Question: What is your intent in sharing the five fundamental tenets for evolutionary enlightenment with viewers? What do you hope people will come away with?
Answer: The five fundamental tenets of Evolutionary Enlightenment clearly describe how we can live our human experience in this and every moment from the perspective of one who is deeply and profoundly spiritually enlightened. They are a pathway that makes it possible to understand the liberated position that the greatest and most realized mystics throughout history, like Shakyamuni Buddha, Adi Shankara, Jesus Christ, Rumi, Padmasambhava, and Sri Ramana Maharshi, were taking in relationship to their own biological, emotional, and psychological experience. The path and the goal are one. That means the position we take in relationship to our experience through the exertion of will power as spiritual seekers and practitioners is the same position we finally manifest spontaneously and effortlessly when we come to the end of our search.
