An Interview With Ken Wilber
The sage is not interested in experiences; the sage is not interested in being a subject looking at higher objects. . . . The sage doesn’t want to see God — although there is nothing wrong with that — but the sage wants to get rid of the separate “seer” altogether.
So we’re led abruptly to the paradoxical consideration that the only agent of evil in the world may be fear itself — an emotion that all of us experience. Thus it becomes critically important to understand the nature of fear as it arises within ourselves, so that we can determine whether we can control, reduce, or even eliminate its destructive effects.
