A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on spiritual, mental, physical, social, integral, integration, fire within, passion, and vision

Fulfilling the four needs [spiritual, mental, physical, social] in an integrated way is like combining elements in chemistry. When we reach a "critical mass" of integration, we experience spontaneous combustion--an explosion of inner synergy that ignites the fire within and gives vision, passion, and a spirit of adventure to life.

Stephen Covey (1932 -)

A Quote by Ken Wilber on joy, pain, suffering, ken wilber, integral, unite, universal pluralism, pluralism, and commonalities

True pluralism on the other hand, is always universal pluralism, (or integral-aperspectival): you start with the commonalities and deep structures that unite human beings--we all suffer, and triumph, laugh and cry, feel pleasure and pain, wonder and remorse; we all have the capacity to form images, symbols, concepts, rules; we all have 208 bones, two kidneys, and one heart; we are all open to a Divine Ground, by whatever name.  And then you add all the wonderful differences, surface structures, culturally constructed variants, and so on, that make various groups--and various individuals--all different, special, and unique.  But if you start with the differences and the pluralism, and never make it to the universal, then you have only the aprespectival madness, ethnocentric revivals, regressive catastrophes.

A Quote by Jim Collins on integral and business

Genius of AND. Embrace both extremes on a number of dimensions at the same time. Instead of choosing a OR B, figure out how to have A AND B--purpose AND profit, continuity AND change, freedom AND responsibility, etc.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on integral and kosmos

But the real intent of my writing is not to say, you must think in this way. The real intent is to enrich: here are some of the many important facets of this extraordinary Kosmos; have you thought of including them in your worldview? My work is an attempt to make room in the Kosmos for all the dimensions, levels, domains, waves, memes, modes, individuals, cultures, and so on ad infinitum.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on philosophy, integral, theory of everything, t o e, holistic, and kosmos

..I sought a world philosophy--or an integral philosophy--that would believably weave together the many pluralistic contexts of science, morals, aesthetics, Eastern as well as Western philosophy, and the world's great wisdom traditions. Not on the level of details--that is finitely impossible; but on the level of orienting generalizations: a way to suggest that the world really is one, undivided, whole, and related to itself in every way: a holistic philosophy for a holistic Kosmos, a plausible Theory of Everything.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on integral, practice, and itp

The basic idea of integral transformative practice (ITP) is simple: the more aspects of our being that we simultaneously exercise, the more likely that transformation will occur.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on integral and vision

It is our governing bodies, then, that stand in dire need of a more integral approach. it is our educational institutions, overcome with deconstructive postmodernism, that are desperate for a more integral vision. If is our business practices, saturated with fragmented gains, that cry out for a more balanced approach. It is our health-care facilities that could greatly benefit from the tender mercies of an integral touch. It is the leadership of the nations that might appreciate a more comprehensive vision of their own possibilities. In all these ways and more, we could indeed use an integral vision for a world gone slightly mad.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on integral, integral practice, integral theory, theory of everything, and t o e

One of the questions we are dealing with, in other words, is how to more effectively implement the emergence of integral (and even transpersonal) consciousness at the leading edge. What is required, in my opinion, is not simply a new integral theory, or a new T.O.E., important as that is, but also a new integral practice.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on science, religion, sense, soul, integration, and integral

On the plane, back to Boulder, back to a life that seems somehow far away from itself.

Is this a topic whose time has truly come? The integration of science and religion? Or have I just written a clever book that temporarily impressed a few people and will otherwise go as quickly as it came?

A Quote by Ken Wilber on ken wilber, integral, fluffy, intrinsic value, buddha-nature, and sentient beings

All sentient beings - all holons in fact - contain Buddha-nature - contain depth, consciousness, intrinsic value, Spirit - and thus we are all members of the council of all beings… And the ultimate objective truth is that all beings are perfect manifestations of Spirit or Emptiness
