Before posting your comments on this blog or at the Transintegral Scholars Group, spend 5-15 minutes engaging in the preparatory practice described below. By reminding us why we are engaging with Transintegralism™ in the first place, this practice helps us to clear away any ambivalence about posting comments, and also help to ground us in a clear and strong intention to give everything to our practice for the highest reasons: to rid all beings in the ten directions etc., etc., from integralist and other obscurantist crap.
AWAKENING THROUGH TRANSINTEGRALISM™
Reflect on the evolutionary journey of the Cosmos—the 14 billion year creative unfolding that began with the Big Bang. Feel the evolutionary impulse that surged forth, first as an impulse to create and organize the material universe, then as an impulse to create and evolve life in all its beauty and diversity, then, with the birth of the human, as an impulse to create and evolve culture into ever higher expressions of complexity and integration. Now, feel how this same impulse is surging in your own heart as the desire to grow and evolve in consciousness, to participate in the higher, creative unfolding of consciousness and a more evolved, enlightened humanity. Recognize that by practicing Transintegralism™ wholeheartedly, you are helping to liberate consciousness from the patterns of the past and the inertia of its embededness in bullshit spiritual and/or integral discourses, so that it can consciously and freely evolve through your participation. Enter into these discussions rooted in this pure intention to free consciousness for the highest possible reasons.
