George Leonard, icon of the Human Potential movement, award-winning journalist, author, and Aikido master, posits that the purpose of life is to consciously engage in our own evolution until we express spiritual awakening in every action. Of course, evolving ourselves isn’t always that easy. Human beings, Leonard is quick to point out, are typically moved to change only in response to extreme stress or crises, and even then the tendency to slip back into resistance or inertia remains an ever-present foe.
In this conversation with EnlightenNext founder Andrew Cohen and journalist Craig Hamilton, Leonard ventures far beyond any Darwinian concept of evolution, defining a model for our future development that includes higher consciousness, thoughts, and most important of all: intentionality. It is this unique human ability to act of free will that Leonard believes is ultimately “the most powerful force in the world” and the source of humanity’s future.
