grace and grit

A Quote by Ken Wilber on ken wilber, grace and grit, timeless, presence, self, and time

The Self doesn't live forever in time, it lives in the timeless present prior to time, prior to history, change, succession. The Self is present as Pure Presence, not as everlasting duration, a rather horrible notion.

A Quote by Ken Wilber on healing, health, illness, disease, sickness, compassion, understanding, culture, treats, treatment, challenge, condemnation, moral judgement, person, grow, heal, enriched, result, better chance, process, larger process, movement,

If a culture treats a particular illness with compassion and enlightened understanding, then sickness can be seen as a challenge, as a healing crisis and opportunity. Being sick is then not a condemnation or a moral judgement, but a movement in a larger process of healing and restoration. When sickness is viewed positively and in supportive terms, then illness has a much better chance to heal, with the concomitant result that the entire person may grown and be enriched in the process. ~ Ken Wilber ~
