“We poor mortals see truth’s noon who scant can bear its harvest moon.”
Perhaps the greatest illusion that keeps us from igniting our inner fire is believing that what we know has not already been filtered by our unconscious. Or, even more common, not paying any attention to what we don’t know and believing that we can add knowledge, skills and abilities to the scaffolding erected in our early life and that at some point we will cross the threshold into wisdom and a fuller life. Don’t wait too long. Only in the pauses of your life can you discover the greatest paradox of all: What we don’t know we know.
