Tools for Evolution: Knowledges and Practices make us real
What is the meaning of our life as human beings? What is our mission? Why does this Universe exist? What is the source of all and everything? How can we answer all these questions?
We are looking for answers to these questions. Our questioning means that we are searching for KNOWLEDGE. There might be an uncountable quantity of questions, and they can cover an infinite number of subjects. But there is something general in all the questions: all of them point to the same process: that through KNOWLEDGE and DEVELOPMENT we can become more REAL and more free from IGNORANCE.
If our main goal is to become REAL through the aspiration of true knowledge. We need a comprehensive vision of how we can work with this true knowledge, that I mapped in six main dimensions of our existence (human situation). This map that I created is named: «TOOLS for EVOLUTION». It is based borth on essential discoveries of transpersonal, integral and processwork psychology, spiritual traditions, art, and modern science and present main catalists and tools for evolutiondiscovered by humanity throughout all its history.
What has the human world to become as much as possible to support a main goal of the Universe - evolution?
First of all, a world in which all - medicine, ethics, policy, economy, education, art, everyday life, leisure, business, spirituality – serve this task.
