Excerpt:“…we have come to the point in biological history where we now are responsible for our own evolution. We are self-evolvers. Evolution means selecting and therefore choosing and deciding, and this means valuing.”—Abraham Maslow
In the dialectic of progress we have forgotten where we came from. We were so impatient to evolve that we have attempted to kick out the lower rungs of the evolutionary ladder that has allowed us to reach our present height. We have forgotten our bodies. Evolution, the process of becoming more complex and more whole, is spirit-in-action. The same spirit that gave birth to the manifest world moves through us too. We are, so far as we know, the latest evolutionary model—cutting edge biological technology. What this means is that for the first time in human history we are in control of our own evolution. What this also means is that we are co-creating our world now. And the vehicle of this co-creation is our bodies.
