COSMOS Reborn


 
Television and entertainment personality Seth MacFarlane Image of Family Guy cartoon main characters.seems to embody and express the emerging new cosmic consciousness of humanity.

In his irreverent television cartoon series “Family Guy,” nothing is ever taken seriously or held sacred by Seth’s brand of humor. Oddly, there seems to be a lot of detachment in that. It’s almost like a humorous kind of sacrilegious spiritual non-attachment to the illusory things of “this world.” The video below is a sampling of Seth’s cartooning humor.


There is also another side to Seth — one that is definitely expansive, mind-blowing, and awe-inspiring. His latest project “COSMOS” is an upgrade and reboot of the late Carl Sagan’s TV documentary series of the same title.


The new COSMOS TV project, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, is co-produced by Sagan’s widow, Ann Druyan, together with Seth.


The Cosmos: A Personal Voyage series of the 20th century, then hosted and presented by Sagan, showcased the scientific insights and the cosmic vision of the universe circa the 1980s. In the 2014 reboot, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, to be hosted by popular astrophysicist and Hayden Planetarium Director Neil deGrasse Tyson, those scientific insights will be updated as humanity’s cosmic vision gets upgraded, too.

It will certainly be fascinating to see the differences between COSMOS then and now, with respect to the body of acquired scientific knowledge and the looming new perspectives about the universe. I take those differences to be reflective of man’s expanded awareness since the past few decades: the growth and expansion of human awareness and the continuing unfoldment of spiritual consciousness.


The new series premiers on television tonight.


About Marc of Contemplative Pathways

Marc teaches contemplative meditation in the context of "contemporary mysticism" under the style of "Contemplative Pathways." His spiritual work is backed by a profound understanding of the mystical teachings and the mystical life, that is rooted in fifty (50) years of individual work (study and practice) and personal unfoldment (inner realization and spiritual experience).  In the course of his spiritual journey, he has received the gifts of mystical discernment and spiritual transmission.   Marc has been conducting classes and meetings on contemporary mysticism and meditation at the San Francisco Bay Area for over fifteen years, usually in a classroom, lecture, seminar, workshop, online meeting, or group practice setting. He has facilitated study groups and workshops for centering/contemplative meditation practice meetings since the 1980s.   Marc's teaching work meaningfully shifts consciousness in students through the process of spiritual transmission and mystical transformation.  He enables others to embark on the spiritual journey by learning and understanding the Truth teaching and by living its principles in their daily lives.   His methodology of instruction is divinely inspired and firmly rooted in pure authentic mysticism.  Marc's approach to the subject of contemporary mysticism is essentially nondenominational, nonsectarian, culturally interfaith, transreligious, definitively unitive, and unequivocally nondualistic.   Within the context of the great shift in consciousness presently occurring all over the planet, Marc’s work focuses on individual and collective spiritual transformation and healing. He promotes the practice of contemplation or meditation as the vehicle for spiritual transcendence and ascension to the higher dimensions of mystical consciousness. His other contributions to worldwide spiritual awakening and the global contemplative movement include spiritual mentoring, spiritual direction, and spiritual healing work.   Marc is firmly committed to the vision of a global spiritual awakening and the divine promise of humanity’s mystical illumination. His brand of mysticism is the only true contemporary mysticism born of 21st century illumination and spirituality.
