This is a talk by psychologist and spiritual teacher Steve Taylor. Spiritual awakening means transcending our sense of separateness, perceiving the world around us with heightened awareness and realising the essential sameness and oneness of all human beings, beyond ethnic or cultural identity. Steve Taylor suggests that a lack of spiritual awareness is the main reason why the world is so full of discord - why human beings find it so difficult to live in harmony with themselves, with others and with nature. Our sense of separateness and the âpsychological discordâ which fills our minds are the root cause of dysfunctional behaviour, both as individuals and as a species. Warfare, social oppression and environmental destruction can be seen as manifestations of this. However, Steve suggests that this discord is only superficial, that our essential nature is one of harmony and well-being, and that it is possible for us to heal the superficial discord and gain permanent access to our inner harmony. (He will include one or two meditative exercises to illustrate this.) This shift from discord to harmony is equivalent to spiritual awakening, and when we undergo this shift we feel a new sense of connection and a new âsacralisedâ awareness which transforms our relationship to other human beings, other living beings and the world itself. Dr. Steve Taylor is senior lecturer in psychology at Leeds Metropolitan University, and the author of several books on spirituality and psychology, including The Fall, Waking from Sleep, and Back to Sanity. Eckhart Tolle has described his work as âan important contribution to the global shift in consciousness.â He was recently included in Mind, Body, Spirit magazineâs list of the â100 most spiritually influential living people.â
