Beyond the Mind
Towards a Consciousness of Unity
From a culture of competition to a culture of sharing
Dare to open doors
“We all are trapped in our minds. Realizing this is the first step of the journey towards liberation.” Ram Dass
Not two repeats the wave riding mother ocean,
Not two whispers brother wind to the flower fragrance,
Not two roars sips of wet summer sister cloud on the back of the sky
Father of lighted flashes,
Not two shines the beam in the ice,
Melt sun, murmur of white moving,
Not two mother, plentiful mother, guardian of fire
Spread flying by smiling steam,
Not two sprouted seed of lavished heart
Not to resounds the beat of the ten thousands beings.
“Not two”, is the expression that better defines “the way” in the age old Tao tradition.
In the Advaita Vedanta the word “Advaita” means “not dual”. Saint Thomas’s Gospel says: “If you do not make one of two, you will not enter the Kingdom.”.
The fathers of psychology, from William James, Rollo May to Ken Wilber state that the primary illness of modern society is separation, the dualism between subject and object. Modern physics declares: matter is energy.
The 11th international Meeting of EUROTAS, with its five days of speeches, workshops, study groups , and invited experts from thirty countries and from most continents, suggests to dare unity.
Dare to cross the boundaries of fear, the mother of all judgements; to go beyond the boundaries of judgement, the mother of all dualisms; to go across the barriers of dualism, the mother of every conflict, whether interior, relational, social, cultural, political or religious.
Dare to trust our true nature, mother of freedom; to find the courage of responsibility and of sympathy for our human condition.
Dare a scientific theory and an experimental practice coming from a unitary theory of the interior transpersonal experience to open the way to ecology of the mind and a culture of sharing.
Dare the descent from the world of ideas of the transpersonal vision to that of everyday life, through practical suggestions in different fields, particularly regarding the scientific, educational, social, environmental spheres.
