Your own experiment

The mystics ask you to take nothing on mere belief. Rather, they give you a set of experiments to test in your own awareness and experience. The laboratory is your own mind, the experiement is meditation.

  1. Ah! Ken Wilber, one of my human heros. Good to know that there are others out there who admire him enough to quote him. One of the ways in which I have been inspired by Wilber is through his belief that it is useful to pick a path to spiritual enlightenment because we don't really know how human beings transform..."something unknown is doing we don't know what" (Eddington on subatomic particles). "Nobody knows why anybody does anything" is what Wilber says about transformation, and is part of his argument for the importance of lineage as an assistance to that process. Thanks for the new quote!
