A Tipping Point

Eventually, in the path and practice of Evolutionary Enlightenment, a tipping point is reached—an inner threshold that, once crossed, changes everything. It is that moment in your own evolution when you begin to care more about the process as a whole than you care about your ego's fears, desires, or concerns. And it represents the essential shift of identity that this teaching rests on: the SHIFT from the ego to the Authentic Self. When this occurs, your very motive for pursuing enlightenment evolves from one that is fundamentally self-centered to one that is focused upon the evolution of consciousness itself.

" In the heart of Emptiness there is a mysterious impulse, mysterious because there is actually

NO THING at the heart of Emptiness ( for there is nothing in Emptiness, period).

Yet, there it is, this mysterious impulse, the impulse to ..... create.

To sing, to shine, to radiate; to send forth, reach out, and celebrate; to sing and shout and walk

about; to effervesce and bubble over, this mysterious exuberance in the heart of Emptiness."

Bridget Riley is about the changes - progressive, sometimes abrupt, sometimes apparently disastrous - that can take place in a given situation.

The situation is presented in the simplest possible terms

            John Russell - Sunday Times - September 1963

One of the most distinctive characteristics of Bridget Riley's art is that it "insists" with such concentration that it changes sensory response into something else.

The experience which Riley offers is closely related to the expression of emotion or, more exactly, to the creation of visual analogues for sharply particularized states of

The very intensity of the assault which her painting makes on the eye drives it, as it were, past the point at which it is merely a matter of optical effect.

It becomes acute physical sensation, apprehended kinesthetically as mental tension or mental release, anxiety or exhileration, heightened self-awareness or heightened awareness of unfamiliar or even alien states of being.

The KILLER app IS LOVE - and maybe, just maybe - THE following discussion could affirm in the mind-set of each and everyone of our species just WHAT LOVE IS - and in so doing provide a global template solution worthy of seamlessly executing "THE SWITCH" from OLD WORLD to NEW WORLD -

NO THING happens in LIVING NATURE that is not in relation to

THE WHOLE as the BALANCED ECO-SYSTEM which Homo Sapiens

must now restore to ensure the survival of LIFE on EARTH.


The MINDFULNESS Mind Map provides a matrix of 49 "tunnels" - designed for and by the masses - allowing access to a place conducive to Coexistence, Cooperation and Collaboration - such that the collective all-inclusive first person singular present tense, third person objective - point of view - will then lead to the establishment of a new model & method of wealth creation, mutually beneficial to ALL.

At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the notion that the evolutionary process is ultimately driven by a spiritual impulse is continuing to gain traction, with a growing number of progressive philosophers, scientists, and mystics exploring its implications.

To many, it is simply a compelling philosophy, uniting the revelations of science and spirituality in a way that no other theory can. But others, like Aurobindo before them, are beginning to reach beyond a theoretical discussion to wonder: What might human life and culture look like if we fully took to heart the reality of this view?

Freed from the mythic dogmatisms of premodern religion, transcending the materialistic biases of modern scientific thought, and liberated from the narcissistic self-absorptions of postmodernity, what kind of new world could human beings aligned with the trajectory of a spiritually evolving cosmos actually create?
