The ability to rise and go beyond is the definition of transcendence. While this force constitutes our nature and fires our spirit, an honest exploration of it must contend with this counter question: Why, with a history so rich in noble ideals and lofty philosophies that reach for the transcendent, do we exhibit such abominable behaviors? Our violence towards ourselves and the planet is an issue that overshadows makes a mockery of all our high aspirations.

Excerpt from: Biology of Transcendence by Joseph Chilton Pearce

This is the book I am reading now and if you can pick it up. It is a bit dense but amazing. Mr. Pearce is also the author of The Crack in the Cosmic Egg

He goes on to explain new research in the field of Biology and Neuroscience and how it relates to the idea of transcendence and spiritual evolution.
