Aldous Huxley On Enlightenment


Aldous Huxley (July 26, 1894 – November 22, 1963)

To be enlightened is to be aware always of total reality in its emanate otherness. To beware of it and yet remain in a condition to survive as an animal. To think and feel as a human being to resort whenever expedient to systematic reasoning. Our goal is to discover that we have always been where we ought to be. Unhappily we make the task exceedingly difficult for ourselves.
