KEN WILBER ON THE NATURE OF AESTHETIC EXPERIENCE

‘Great art grabs you, against your will, and then suspends your will. You are ushered into a quiet clearing, free of desire, free of grasping, free of ego, free of the self-contraction. And through that opening or clearing in your own awareness may come flashing higher truths, subtler revelations, profound connections. For a moment you might even touch eternity; who can say otherwise, when time itself is suspended in the clearing that great art creates in your awareness?’ Ken Wilber

WHAT DOES ‘GURU’ MEAN GURU means gu’…

WHAT DOES ‘GURU’ MEAN?

GURU means “gu’ actually means darkness while “ru” means light. The two serve as a principle for the development of consciousness where it leads the creation from unreality to reality, from the darkness of ignorance to the light of knowledge. – from ‘UNIVERSAL TRUTH: thinking outside the box’ by Peter C Rogers D.D., PhD

The term Guru is therefore explained as the remover of darkness, who reveals the light of the heart.
