A New Moral Context – from Andrew Cohen


The following is an excerpt from spiritual teacher Andrew Cohen and integral philosopher Ken Wilber’s popular “Guru & Pandit” dialogue series:

Andrew Cohen: When we begin on the spiritual path, more often than not, it’s all about ourselves. But if we stick with it, eventually we cross a threshold where it becomes more and more obvious that it never could have been a personal matter. Our motive for transformation changes spontaneously and dramatically as we come to recognize that our owndevelopment has always only been for the sake of the evolution of consciousness itself. And it’s not a romantic ideal. That’s just all there is. That’s where I believe a new moral context is going to come from.

Ken Wilber: I do too. It really is that realization that your every move, your every breath, your every thought is literally becoming what I call a “Kosmic habit” or memory that future generations of humanity will follow. And you can do it wrong. That’s why it’s such a bracing realization: Be the most ethical, the most responsible, the most authentic you can be with every breath you take, because you are cutting a path into tomorrow that others will follow.

    Wilber discusses about people’s actions and the future but he didn’t really take criticism of his work well. It’s kind of hard for me to take him saying things like this seriously although I do believe in what he is saying. Odd paradox to say the least. I was reading about his rise and fall the other day here http://postmasculine.com/ken-wilber and it really makes you think a lot about what he has accomplished and what he could have accomplished if he did it all better.
