Are You in Reality?: Our Human Experience, A Path to Wisdom [NOOK Book]

Overview

The quest for wisdom or man s search for what reality is in his experiences comes from man s astonishment in front of all that exist. When we see something, we are lucid that we do not know the whole; that which is the most profound is so hidden from our eyes that we easily prefer believing our own ideas to searching to unveil what the reality is.

Overview

The quest for wisdom or man s search for what reality is in his experiences comes from man s astonishment in front of all that exist. When we see something, we are lucid that we do not know the whole; that which is the most profound is so hidden from our eyes that we easily prefer believing our own ideas to searching to unveil what the reality is. Rather than to be toward something we have not made and that escapes us, we prefer to remain in the ideas we construct, or to contemplate our own image. We need to seek if we Are truly living in reality or if we remain in our ideas as the only full discovery of reality as it is can be a path to wisdom and allow us to blossom.

Written from a series of seminars, Are You in Reality is the author s contribution coming from his own experiences to the research of wisdom understood as man s search for truth. This search for wisdom, rightly called philosophy, is a quest without any preconceived ideas, an insatiable desire for light which can ultimately enlighten man about every aspect of his existence. It must be capable of meeting each man in his experiences, in his quest, and in his own journey. Therefore, philosophy is neither Christian nor Buddhist, neither European nor American, neither African nor Asian. It is human and intelligent in the sense that it takes its truth from no other source than that of the real that we encounter and of those who place themselves at its school.
