In this blog post, Andrew Cohen describes his vision–beginning to be realized among his students, he reports–of Enlightenment inside an intersubjective context. Here’s a short clip:
It became apparent to me that unless the experience of enlightenment could transcend the boundaries of the individual, the “enlightened one,” its ultimate power and capacity to effect deep change and profound transformation in this world would be inherently limited. But if the individual human vessel became truly transparent, then the impersonal ground of egoless consciousness could become the very foundation and context for relatedness. I’ve always intuitively known that if such a momentous shift would occur, all bets would be off and what would become possible for human beings to accomplish together would be unimaginable. Enlightenment beyond the personal, liberation beyond the individual, the consciousness of One being shared by the many in a context of multiplicity and relatedness.
And in this follow-up post, Ellen Daly reports that “soul development is taking on a new urgency and significance for anyone interested in the evolutionary transformation [Andrew’s] teaching points to.”
