A Quote by John Kain on consciousness, ettiquette, freedom, gary snyder, images, imagination, memories, and spiritual teacher
Gary Snyder points out, "The world is our consciousness, and it surrounds us. There are more things in mind, in the imagination, than 'you' can keep track of -- thoughts, memories, images, angers, delights, rise unbidden. The depths of mind, the unconscious, are our inner wilderness areas." When we turn to a spiritual teacher we look for a guide, not one who is familiar with well-worn paths, but one who knows, as Snyder puts it, the "ettiquette of freedom."
