About

Welcome to Evolutionary Development.org!

The website grows into and from the exploration of – consciousness, ideas, metaphysics and symbolism in the work of authors Wilber, Graves, Beck, Cohen, Arasteh, Jung, McIntosh, Bateson, Merton, Keating, Rohr among others – whose inspiration has led many to embrace the powerful pull of their own evolutionary development.

Steven McIntosh (2009) speaks of the shift toward evolution in the 21st Century as similar to the scientific transformation in physics from Newtonian to quantum. We are already witnessing a focus on ‘interior space’ and the role of purpose and intention in the evolutionary process. – “the evident purpose found in all forms of consciousness.”

Peter Block would tell us that the answer to ‘how’ is ‘yes’ to what really matters in the question that easily comes to mind, ‘how’ do we encourage the shift to living from interior space:

    • For ourselves with purpose and clear intent so that our lives unfold (from the inside) toward the common good of shared connection;
    • For those we love, those with whom we share the planet, and those who are coming behind us – who feel the call to live their intent purposefully from the inside out toward interconnectedness and relatedness.

Agreeing that “Evolution is an increase in the ability to experience what is intrinsically valuable” (Steven McIntosh 2009) then by all means, “Let us tune into the level of our being that is more us than we normally perceive ourselves to be” (Thomas Keating 2008).

There is much to explore and to become – I appreciate your joining me in this emergent effort.

Welcome to the Evolutionary Development Blog!!

This blog grows out of a spirit of adventure and exploration of the unknown—to give figure and ground to ideas and thoughts. A few will germinate, take root, evolve and grow in this virtual milieu that does the work of sun and rain. The blog is a new journey even as I complete another—my research and writing that began with Bill Carris’ bold effort described in his *Long Term Plan* for the Carris Companies 100% shared ownership and governance. Information pertaining to the research and its publication will become a part of the sharing within this site.

The blog postings involve ideas coming from thoughts, life and reading that don’t directly relate to that work in progress (at least at first breath) and which seem to deserve more reflection. Some of the sharings may well be just personal tics and observations–others may be an extension of thoughts, questions and moments of wondering or of others’ works.

Your comment will create an interaction—begin a dialogue—for the exploration and–gift what is posted here.

Thank you.

Best,

It may be that when we no longer know what to do,
we have come to our real work,
and when we no longer know which way to go,
we have begun our real journey.
