Serenity-Life-Practice means evolving conscious awareness.
See how an outstanding experience teacher puts our need for personal practice.
Andrew Cohen: “Since the day I started on the spiritual path, it has been clear to me that there is something higher than the individual.
When one truly awakens to that higher reality of Spirit, one has the potential to become a different kind of person, a more evolved person.
And if such a one can demonstrate a higher level of spiritual awareness that is tangible and obvious to other people , then it puts him or her in a position to convince others of that which is higher in such away that, ideally, will inspire them to make the effort to evolve themselves.”
Andrew Cohen continues: “Old enlightment was only about transcendence, about letting everything be as it is, about the power of Now.
It was about attaining freedom from the world process. The focus was on the liberation of the individual, not the evolution of culture. But now we have this postmodern understanding.
We’ve realized that the individual is a product of culture, and therefore the evolution of the individual is the evolution of culture. That perspective changes everything.
We must find ways to make spiritual practice, for conscious awareness, more than just something we do on a cushion.
Most of us, when we use the word ’practice,’ have our own little box around what that means.
But we’re trying to enlarge that box and develop new forms of practice that will lead to higher consciousness, conscious awareness, in the process of making social contributions.”

The fact that we are all one is not a theory.
Serenity-Life-Practice: The way you can tell the depth of a person’s enlightenment is by the breadth of their service to others. Zen Master Kobo Daishi
As we notice ‘patterns that connect’ our inner and outer worlds, we realize that this draws us into a deeper intimacy with the mystery of existence.
Faith is always going beyond where our eyes can see.
