in Consciousness

Big Mind and Evolution

Foremost integral thinker Ken Wilber discusses the Bodhisattva vow (to liberate all sentient beings) and it’s relationship to Big Mind, or revelation of true self.

What evolutionary awareness does is reveal a second dimension of the Enlightenment process that must now be a part of how a bodhisattva functions in the world, because although pure nondual Emptiness does not evolve or change, sentient beings do. With each new structure of consciousness, Spirit has a new way to understand itself, which is not simply recycled samsara dressed up to look like something new, but a stunning and grand act of emergent creativity on a Kosmic scale—one which you are invited to participate in, if you really want it.

Interesting high-level thinking (maybe too high-level – I think it’s a bit more complicated.)
