“Conscious” is defined as a deliberate and intentional act, being fully active and engaged, aware of one’s self, our surroundings, and the impact we are making. “Evolution” is the infinite process through which the whole mass of interrelated phenomena in the universe are developing through descent, leading to new, more complex biological, social, economic, and institutional forms.
We define “conscious evolution” as the process by which we apply our ability to influence how, and into what we, as humans, evolve. When we awaken to the fact that we have the power to affect our evolution, we make the conscious choice to radically alter the way we think. We intentionally open ourselves to new ideas and actively consider a multitude of perspectives. We learn to recognize when our subconscious programming, self-serving ego, or fragile emotional state is driving our decisions, and access our heart’s intuitive guidance instead. Our belief system, values, priorities, intentions, and behavior must all be examined to determine facets of our life where we can evolve. Recognizing that we seek harmony with the world around us, we embrace an attitude of nurturing toward all life. Engaging in conscious evolution helps us to achieve a deeper understanding of our individual place as a single cell in the super organism of humanity, our role as custodians of the Earth, and our innate connection to all things in the Universe. Conscious evolution is something we grow into that eventually becomes second nature. We apply our intelligence to gather data and make consistently improving decisions spurred on by the momentum we gain.
