the age of awareness
May 25, 2012
When information overshadows awareness, it is ignorance – even if the information is correct. When awareness outshines information, it is enlightenment – even if awareness is empty of all knowledge.
We have lived through the Age of Belief, the Age of Reason, and the Age of Information. Now the Information Age is over. The Age of Awareness has begun.
In this age, we are over-loaded by information and it is driving us crazy. Now the essential practice for mental health is not to Know, but to Unknow: to recover the formless from in-formation; to restore the innocent self-luminosity of pure awareness.
