One of our favorite people, the philosophical genius Ken Wilber, spoke with a small group tonight on Kosmic Creativity, the subject of an upcoming event sponsored by Integral Institute at which we will be presenting in late December. Creativity is usually described as a human trait relegated to a select few, the creative geniuses of science and art. But creativity is a force fully operating in all of us now. If 14 billion years ago there was literally nothing, then, in an explosive beginning, the building blocks of the universe suddenly came into being, from superstring to quark to neutrino to atom, then over billions of years evolving to molecule to cell to creature, each step in the process was a staggeringly creative event. Far from chance selection, a divine artistry seems at the very basis of existence. Creativity is another name for evolution. Evolution and creativity are Spirit in action. Fundamental to existence, creativity is Spirit's voice, the uni-verse, the one song occurring in every phenomena. Every fresh moment contains the possibility to transcend the last. Our transcendental core, our pure empty witness consciousness, carries the same potential for creation that existed before the beginning of the universe. We all bring the universe into being within our own awareness. In many wisdom traditions the universe begins by an act of God. Spirit involutes, descends into matter as the primal cause of the cosmos. From matter life evolves back to spirit because of greater and greater consciousness in life forms. The universe becomes self-aware through living creative beings.
Participants of the Integral Spiritual Experience will learn practices that take us to our transcendental core, and empower our creative path. Join us in Pacific Grove for an intensive sharing between many of the brightest and most inspiring evolutionary visionaries as we unpack the depths and heights of Kosmic Creativity. We will dance and paint with D.J.'s as we all take an Integral step forward into Spirituality and Community!
