Interviews on ‘Being’

Please spend a few moments exploring a deeper understanding of ‘being’ with us. Here, Patrice Papke and I use each other’s curiosity to climb the ladder of understanding.

“Guarding knowledge is not a good way to understand. Understanding means to throw away your knowledge. You have to be able to transcend your knowledge the way people climb a ladder. If you are on the fifth step of a ladder and think you are very high, there is no hope for you to climb to the sixth. Always let go of views and knowledge in order to transcend. This is the most important teaching. That is why I use the image of water to talk about understanding. Knowledge is solid; it blocks the way of understanding. Water ca flow, can penetrate.” Thich Nhat Hanh, Being Peace, p. 43

Harmful, blocking words: “I know that”.
Penetrating words: “Let’s go deeper”.
