Living with Meaning, Purpose and Wisdom in the Digital Age
Knowledge, information, and wisdom, how do they relate? Of course with the technological revolution, information revolution, digital revolution, whatever you call it there’s an enormous amount of knowledge available to everybody. Almost the whole of the world’s knowledge and there’s the interconnectedness between people and so on.
That’s all very good of course to have all that accessible to you. There’s a danger though that you get drowned in too much information and too much knowledge.
And by drowned I mean that the mind gets bombarded with an excess of input and therefore you miss something that is essential for a human life to be truly fulfilled and that is the place of peace, inner peace, or stillness; the place that one could describe as the source of all intelligence, that many people don’t actually don’t even realize exists within them.
