on spirituality

"there is more spirituality in reason denial of
God than thre is in myth's affirmation of
God, precisely there is more depth...
even an atheist acting from
rational-universal compassion is more
spiritual than a fundamentalist acting to
convert the universe in the name of a
mythic-membership god." -- ken wilber

evolution

"evolution does not isolate us from the rest of
the Kosmos, it unites us with the of the
Kosmos: the same currents that produced
birds from dust and poetry from rocks
produce egos from ids and sages from egos." -- ken wilber

humor

"transcendence restores humor. spirit restores
humor. suddenly, smiling returns. too many
representatives of too many movements - even
many very good movements, such as feminism,
environmentalism, meditation, spiritual studies
- seem to lack humor alltogether. in other words,
they lack lightness, they lack a distance from
themselves, a distance from the ego and its grim
game of forcing others to conform to its contours." -- ken wilber
