“Fright is something one can never get over. When a warrior is caught in such a tight spot he would simply turn his back to the ally without thinking twice. A warrior cannot indulge thus he cannot die of fright. A warrior allows the ally to come only when he is good and ready. When he is strong enough to grapple with the ally he opens up his gap and lurches out, grabs the ally, keeps him pinned down and maintains his stare on him for exactly the time he has to, then he moves his eyes away and releases the ally and lets him go. A warrior, my little friend, is the master at all times.”
Carlos Castaneda

A Separate Reality

Knowledge & Experience

n

Is there is a kind of paradoxical relationship between knowledge and experience?

Something along the lines of spirit & matter?

My experiences bring me knowledge.

My experiences also bring me knowledge that all knowledge from experience is tainted.

This knowledge-by-experience may be close (and moving closer) towards true knowledge.

Yet this knowledge-by-experience also seems to be forever temporary … forever removed from true knowledge.

The more I learn from experience the less I feel I know.

I feel I need to detach from what I’ve learned through experience to arrive at knowledge.

I depend on experience to move towards knowledge. I depend on relinquishing experience to arrive.
