No Room For Feeling

“Most Westerners, politicians and diplomats are nervous about diversity. They would rather believe that everyone acts from the same motives that they do. Most religious authorities are equally nervous about giving credence to people’s individual spiritual experiences. Most academic authorities, while giving lip-service to diversity, are unwilling to challenge their own Western model of dissecting, dividing and analysing everything into mental concepts, leaving no room for feeling or personal experience.”

~ Neil Douglas-Klotz, author; Desert Wisdom
