Modern Teachers of Truth
Below are two of most respected 20th century teachers who passed on their knowledge and experience in different but closely linked ways. Ken Wilber states that ‘the map is not the territory’ which suggests that one has to experience the truth directly and nothing that anyone says will give you the experience.
“My readers may suppose that they are physical creatures, bound within physical bodies, imprisoned within bone, flesh, and skin. If you believe that your existence is dependent upon this corporeal image, then you feel in danger of extinction, for no physical form lasts, and no body, however beautiful in youth, retains the same vigor and enchantment in old age. If you identify with your own youth, or beauty, or intellect, or accomplishments, then there is the constant gnawing knowledge that these attributes can and will vanish.”
