Here’s another example: Spiritual Evolution
The planet is currently changing rapidly. A wide-scale awakening and acceleration of consciousness seems to be taking place. That is however also bringing unresolved issues to the surface and increasing polarization. That will necessarily lead to integration in the long run, and the evolvement into a higher state of consciousness.
Man’s capacity for ‘higher states of consciousness’, that is, his actual already ‘evolved’ self-consciousness, must have evolved long ago. The realization of that potential is not really evolution, since that potential appeared long ago.
New agers are unable to define what they mean by evolution.
