“Because the overriding emotion of mechanical-man is survival, it is important for him to know what is going on at all times. That is why fortune tellers have always prospered. They appeal to mechanical-man’s need to know that all will be well. Mechanical-man cannot rest where he finds himself. He has to project into the future, asking what will happen. Will I be safe? Will it be OK? Even if things are fine right now, he worries that perhaps in the future things may fall apart and he won’t make it.
The Warrior-Sage being as he is detached from concerns about his death, he is also not concerned about the future. He had no need to know. He feels his energy powerfully and knows that when the time comes that same energy will affect his destiny, creating strong circumstances as it does today. Knowing that to be fact, the Warrior-Sage is not involved in having to know. He is happy to settle in the present and he realizes that in not knowing there is a power.
Only fools yearn to know. Their yearning becomes an affirmation of their weakness, for in that yearning they affirm that they are insecure about sustaining a level of power that will deliver to them all that they need. By not having to know, one quickens and consolidates energy, for little of one’s consciousness is in the future-thought and none in one’s emotions.”
Stuart Wilde, in “The Quickening”
