Over a decade ago, the renowned integral philosopher Ken Wilber made his first appearance in the pages of EnlightenNext magazine (formerly known asWhat Is Enlightenment?) with a passionate article titled "A Spirituality that Transforms." In its pages he delivered an evolutionary call to action that never ceases to inspire:
All of those for whom authentic transformation has deeply unseated their souls must, I believe, wrestle with the profound moral obligation to shout from the heart—perhaps quietly and gently, with tears of reluctance; perhaps with fierce fire and angry wisdom; perhaps with slow and careful analysis; perhaps by unshakable public example—but authenticity always and absolutely carries a demand and duty: you must speak out, to the best of your ability, and shake the spiritual tree, and shine your headlights into the eyes of the complacent. You must let that radical realization rumble through your veins and rattle those around you.
