Ken Wilber: We Are God In The Making.

Via on May 12, 2011

Realization is to get rid of the delusion that you have not realized. ~Ramana Maharshi

“Evolution is best thought of as Spirit-in-action, God-in-the-making, where Spirit unfolds itself at every stage of development, thus manifesting more of itself, and realizing more of itself, at every unfolding.

Being and consciousness exist as a spectrum, reaching from matter to body to mind to Spirit.  And although Spirit is, in a certain sense, the highest dimension or level of the spectrum of existence, it is also the ground or condition of the entire spectrum. It is as if Spirit were both the highest rung on the ladder of existence and the wood out of which the entire ladder is made—Spirit is both totally and completely immanent (as the wood) and totally and completely transcendent (as the highest rung).

Spirit is both Ground and Goal.

In its immanent aspect, Spirit is the condition of all conditions, the Being of all beings, the Nature of all the natures. As such, it neither evolves nor involves, grows or develops, ascends or descends.  It is the simple suchness or isness—the perfect isness—of all that is, of each and everything in manifestation.  There is no contacting immanent Spirit, no way to reach It, no way to commune with It, for there is nothing It is not. Being completely and totally present and at every single point of space and time, It is fully and completely present here and now, thus we can no more attain immanent Spirit then we could, say, attain our feet.” ~from The Simple Feeling Of Being by Ken Wilber

Here Ken Wilber describes the Integral Operating System…Enjoy.
