The Spectrum of Consciousness

The Spectrum of Consciousness
Ken Wilber

Buddhist discipline is designed to transmute trishna, or egoic narcissism, into Karuna, Divine Narcissism; that is, to transmute self-love, which excludes love of others, into Self-love, which is love of others.”


“The Level of Mind cannot be externally proven, for the simple reason that there is nowhere in the universe where one can go that is outside of Mind so as to be able to verify it, objectify it, or measure it.”
