We live in an era where we can ask our phones or home assistants to fetch us information. We can search quickly online and be inundated with information, data, opinions, and criticisms of every imaginable subject. And while much is gained through this abundance and availability, something is also lost.

When we have a personal experience, and gain first-hand knowledge, it can stay with us in an indelible way - the touch, the sound, the look, the feeling - and it can provide us with a more complete picture of the subject at hand. And, often, when our knowledge becomes more in-depth, we are then able to bring something of our own individuality into the arena, contributing, in a way, to its evolution.

 

information or knowledge

In this episode, the conversation delves into this territory and asks the question: is knowledge and experience taking a back seat to information? And, if so, what can be done about it? 

The idea that you can be just a click away from everything defies the discipline of mind of staying with one thing for a long period of time. That's a problem, because what if the challenges that we are now facing require the kind of focus and discipline, and contemplative muscle, from people to unlock the issues that are in front of us?

I am seeking to be in conversation with others in search for keys, for tools of understanding and application and for the real questions, the ones that become portals to contemplative journeys, leading to uncharted territories that feel like home.

I believe we are on a trajectory of multiple and unpredictable changes; it is up to each one of us to rise to the challenge of our times. Now, more than ever before, is the time to be true to ourselves and fulfill our potential.

Many years ago, I woke up to the mysteries and wonders of the gift of existence. Thus, the quest for its purpose, meaning and fulfillment became a central theme of my life.

Shared with fellow pilgrims in exploring the human potential, and with gratitude and care towards Mother Earth, the well being of her many dwellers and the future.

I don't think I can remember a time when I wasn't asking, Why am I here? Or wondering, What is the purpose of life? Seeking not so much to simply solve the mystery, but rather to find the settlement that comes from knowing one's place, and finding one's home, in this great unfolding.

Perhaps, then, one can become part of the living process, which sets one free to go out into the world and discover what is new, what is needed, and ask the question: How can I help?
