On Aldous Huxley & The Doors of Perception
Student Question: What level of consciousness, or what door did Huxley open?
"Well I wont judge Aldous Huxley and how many doors he opened, lets say, but certainly there was a heightened realization," argues Shunyamurti, the spiritual leader of the Sat Yoga Institute in Costa Rica, "that we're in a throbbing, luminous, living reality; that what we think of as dead matter is not dead at all. Its alive in a divine way."
But, in our materialistic paradigm, and "by de-enchanting the world, by refusing to see it, we have caused that magical dimension of reality to withdraw because the world responds to us: if we treat it as dead, itll treat us as dead. . . . And so its a rejection of God to choose to have a materialist philosophy. And the whole world has been indoctrinated today into that belief." Recorded on Tuesday, October 20, 2009.
