Unlearning





My teacher Jen believes that unlearning is just as important as learning. The other day she was talking about how knowledge is a thorn that we use to remove the thorn of our conditioning, but ultimately, we throw both thorns out.

I like the way Jack Gilbert puts it. It's a little more glamorous. He says, "We must unlearn the constellations to see the stars."
