Time flies. It’s been just over a year since we began this series of conversations—Beyond Awakening: The Future of Spiritual Practice—and I’m sensing that it’s time to shift the conversation into a bit of a new gear.
I’d like to invite us to engage here and expand this conversation about this whole premise of Beyond Awakening, and more specifically about the promise of awakening.
So I invite you to watch my personal 4-minute video message below and join me on a brief spiritual exercise and imaginative inquiry about one way to think about the implications of what lies “beyond awakening”.
We’re holding some very “Big Questions” here. And I know this metaphor is only one of many ways to frame them. What do you perceive, and feel?
I’ve been asking one question for a year now: how can spirituality and higher consciousness help us rise to meet the unprecedented challenges of our time?
In over 40 remarkable conversations we’ve all had the privilege of looking at this question from many insightful, profound, and awakened perspectives.
How has your understanding deepened? How has your way of holding this crucial question evolved?
What does awakening mean to you? And what does the promise of awakening suggest is possible, in your life, in your relationships, and in our world?
And what else seems necessary? How are you moved to evolve your life and practice? What are you moved to co-create now? How do you think our inquiry needs to evolve?
In the spirit of widening our conversation, and perhaps exploring some new directions, I invite you to offer your responses and comments below. Thanks!
