the information age

So I have been told that we are currently living in the “Information Age” defined as lots of information at our fingertips that is freely shared and accessible.  Some would say that there is a bit too much information – others would say that there is a difference between information and knowledge.  I would add that there is a difference between knowledge and knowing…the kind that includes not knowing…the kind that is available in the present moment…the kind that is about self awareness, not self importance...the kind that leads to profound connection...the kind that is evolving, unlimited potential in motion...the kind that is not thought with the mind as much as felt through the heart which in turn directs the mind. 

This path of knowing is a kind of slippery slope, because there is no map except the one you are discovering as you go and there is no guide outside of yourself – at times it is travelled with others though there will be signposts along the way –  while you will be in unchartered territory, at the same time it will feel strangely familiar – it is likely you will get lost before you find anything, but what you find is parts of yourself – there will be discomfort and pain that oddly enough will make room for waves of joy and gentleness of well being.  Everything you need for this journey is completely accessible inside of you, so no need to pack anything except the radical truth of who you are which requires no gear or protection. 

It does appear that we are living in the "Information Age" - seems the source of the information is worth noting.
