Peter Russell writes: We are living through an unprecedented spiritual renaissance, rediscovering in contemporary terms the timeless wisdom of the world’s spiritual traditions. As we peel away the trappings of the ages, the core message not only becomes increasingly clear; it gets simpler and simpler. And the path becomes easier and easier.
The essence of spiritual awakening is awakening to who and what we really are. But our true nature becomes veiled when our minds are dominated by thinking — by our desires and aversions, hopes and fears, judgment and planning.
When the mind settles into stillness, and we come to rest in our own innate being, we discover for ourselves the inner peace and freedom that all the great teachings have spoken of. And with this comes an opening of the heart.
We become aware of the true self, the ever-present, unchanging, knower of all experience. We recognize that our essential nature is awareness itself. And that consciousness underlies and permeates reality.
As we wake up and taste these truths for ourselves, the world’s wisdom teachings become more alive and take on deeper significance.
Peter Russell is the author of ten books including The Global Brain, Waking Up in Time, and From Science to God, and a leading thinker on consciousness and contemporary spirituality, integrating both Eastern and Western understandings of the mind. As one of the more revolutionary futurists, Peter has been a keynote speaker at many international conferences in Europe, Japan, and the US. His multi-image shows and videos, The Global Brain and The White Hole in Time, have won praise and prizes from around the world.
