If you or I, as highly conscious beings are, as far as we know, at the leading edge of the entire evolutionary unfolding that started with the big bang, then from a certain point of view what we do is a reflection of the process as a whole. In other words, the way in which you engage with the world around you is a statement that reveals how you see and understand the process that gave life to you. The way you express your own humanity — your greater or lesser degree of inspired virtue, moral sensitivity, and spiritual awareness — is a demonstration of what the leading edge of the process actually looks like. Your life — the life you are living right now — is always an evolutionary event, a public statement that says something significant about life itself. The way you are, as an individual, from one moment to another, is your personal contribution to what cosmic evolution looks like here and now, in human form.
