Topic for Wednesday November 12:
Order from Disorder: Transformation of Being
Much of the time we are fully occupied by our interactions with
life: meeting daily demands and the challenges of relationship
with family and friends, co-workers, and society, and -- not least --
concerned by a world in disarray.
In quieter, less distracted moments, many of us realize that something
is lacking, something isn't right about the way we lead our lives.
Without an inner purpose that makes deep and lasting sense, without an
internal center of gravity, we tend to value and pursue a confusion of
external objectives and passive entertainments. One feels instinctively
that living should be about growing throughout our lives. But what
makes that possible?
The question for this session: How do I begin to transform my way of
questions? Want to receive updates on future events?

evolution of man is the evolution of
his consciousness. And
'consciousness' cannot evolve unconsciously. The evolution of man is the evolution of his
will, and 'will' cannot evolve involuntarily. The evolution of man is the evolution of
his power of doing, and 'doing' cannot be the result of things which 'happen'.
