6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By sara riley on 7 Jan. 2012
Format: Hardcover
For a Postmodern like myself, Andrew Cohen's new Big Idea brings a sense and clarity to the isolated and cynical predicament that, along with my generation, I find myself in. The pages of this book unfold with ease and with this a depth perspective reveals who we deeply are as human beings, what we deeply share, and, our way forward together in culture. I found a current ran through my veins and an impulse of curiosity arose to find out more about the toolkit he gives, to recognise my individual responsibility for this most positive 14 billion year process that we are all at the edge of. This is an audacious step indeed, and Cohen proves to us scientifically, how a new culture can be born.

Cohen's words have called me to rethink: Our human predicament is delicate in this 21st Century, it is the cause of so much societal and planetary anxst. Yet, he shows us how great is our human potential! At this point in our evolution are we willing to allow our dormant Souls to awaken and to participate in life with renewed maturity and purpose? This book shows us how. (Hardback or Kindle)

Here is a very short "personal" story.
I share it with you because, it is important... :)

About 12 years ago I got very sick. My heart stopped, and I... died. (Yes, I died, even if the doctors say it was only a near death experience :).
Finally, after 25 years of meditation practice, I experienced "the real thing"...
At first I didn't want to help. I was OK! But then, I sew my kids, and I understood that heaven can wait.
I was lucky! A choice to come back to life was still an option.
It was a start of a new life, and quit a cool one. Knowing what "death" is, gave me the ability to live without fear. It is a big thing! Still, I did not have an answer to the biggest question ever; "What is the point of it all, and what life is all about?"
It took another 7 years till things started to clear up for me.
One day, I have heard that an American spiritual teacher is coming to town. The moment Andrew Cohen entered the room; I felt a very powerful connection to that very same part in him, that is the same part I got to know when I was experiencing death. It was the spirit recognized itself in Andrew. It was a spontaneous, and immediate feeling, of great love and oneness.
Andrew introduced the audience to the teaching of Evolutionary Enlightenment.

A month later I went to a retreat with Andrew Cohen to learn Evolutionary Enlightenment. I can't say I understood it all immediately, but I did understand finally what is The Purpose of Life...

Now, don't ask me to tell you what is the purpose of life. Ask Andrew Cohen.
His new book "Evolutionary Enlightenment" will give you the tools to choose life full of joy, ecstasy and purpose!

Format: Hardcover
The radical essence of Cohen's teachings is that we are one with the evolutionary process and that we are at its leading edge. At the dawn of the 21st Century, as our self-reflective consciousness awakens us to this, we realise that the evolutionary process itself now needs us to take responsibility for its further development. The idea of traditional religion that we remain dependent children praying to a God "up there" is thus turned on its head, as Cohen explains: "The fact that highly evolved beings can now awaken directly to the evolutionary impulse means that God, as the creative principle, is able to see, hear, taste, touch, and feel like never before his or her own creation, through us." God--or the creative principle behind the evolutionary process that started with the Big Bang--thus needs us to take responsibility for its further development.

Most would agree that, given today's rampant materialism and its negative social and environmental fall-out, humanity's stage of maturity hasn't progressed beyond adolescence; that is, we still haven't yet taken responsibility. And perhaps that's one reason both traditional religion and secular materialism retain such strong appeal: because both of them leave us in a position of adolescent dependency or irresponsibility; whether it be the spiritual dependency of praying to a God "up there" to solve our problems for us, or be it our secular faith in political leaders to somehow get us out of a deepening global crisis they haven't the first clue how to solve. What stands in our way, as Cohen points out with such brilliant clarity, is ourselves, our fear, and our unwillingness to take proper responsibility. As Bernard Shaw also recognised: "Freedom means taking responsibility. That is why most men dread it.
