Andrew Cohen's Teaching: Evolutionary Enlightenment

Andrew Cohen, spiritual teacher and founder of EnlightenNext magazine, describes his teaching of "Evolutionary Enlightenment", as follows:

"Traditional enlightenment is what I learned from my teacher, but Evolutionary Enlightenment is what I have discovered and created in my own work over the last almost quarter of a century. During this time, I have discovered a new source of emotional, psychological, and spiritual liberation that easily exists within anyone’s reach, anyone who has the eyes to recognize it and the heart to desire it. To put it simply, enlightenment is evolving. It is no longer found only in the bliss of timeless Being; it is found also in the ecstatic urgency of evolutionary Becoming."

Cohen, commenting on The Momentum of Karma, has the following to say about the individual's responsibility to evolve his or her own consciosness:

Unless a moment comes in your own evolution when you are willing to take responsibility for all of your past, without conditions, no matter what the implications, the karmic momentum will not come to an end. If you don’t stop it, it will continue. It always does. And that momentum will inevitably determine your choices and ultimately, your destiny.
