When we awaken to the evolutionary impulse as our own Authentic Self we begin to know, in ways that are hard to describe, that we are no longer living the life of the ego. Now we begin to intuit that we are living for the whole cosmos and start to experience all the drama that such a big perspective inherently entails. From this lofty vantage point, our ego or personal self is seen as nothing but a small shell containing a finite self-structure. Indeed, from this expanded state of consciousness, we realize that the ego’s personal perspective and limited worldview is just not big enough to contain the enormity of what we are now seeing. When this kind of shift happens, it is dramatic and unmistakable. It is unmistakable because when we plug into this surging momentum we become animated by its power, intelligence, and upward trajectory. As a self, we are carried by what feels like a cosmic momentum, stretching way beyond ourselves towards an as-yet-unmanifest higher potential. Inexplicably, we are drawn to fulfill a glorious promise that seems to be ever calling us to itself.
