Knowledge comes from the inside, information from the outside. Information without knowledge is exceedingly dangerous. It built the Enola Gay, the first aircraft to drop an atomic bomb. With pants-down puerility, scientists christened the bomb “Little Boy.”
Men come here and I tell them what I know. Some of our conversations are pretty brief.
If we don’t know this, and know it profoundly, we are spiritually hogtied.
Knowledge is the head. An accumulation of past.
Knowing is the heart. An experience of now.
Knowing has no antecedents and no thought process.
Socrates: “All I know is that I know nothing.”
The state of the world is not a problem. Fear of the state of the world—that is the problem.
A problem cannot be solved at the level of the problem. Fear cannot fix what fear has created.
Ancients understood fear as the ‘knowledge’ of good and evil. It’s why we have war.
