“What is recognized as the truth must be lived beyond anything we may have thought possible if it is to approach the critical spirit of a transforming energy.”
— James Douglass
This week we deepen our exploration of truth, transformation and nonviolence with a quote from James Douglass. As the power of nonviolence grows in us, it begins to transform us, which in turn transforms others and grows the movement for change.
I discuss this idea through the lens of “Six interrelated layers of knowing and learning” from Tobin Hart: information, knowledge, intelligence, understanding, wisdom, transformation. This process maps out how we start with input and work with it through our experiences, growing and changing along the way.
