Paideia for the 21st Century: Deeper aims

from Peter Kingsley, A Story Waiting to Pierce You:

Waiting for the new sun. Planetary paideia? 

 

There are really only two kinds of people in existence. There is everyone who has been trained to live either for today or tomorrow, stuck in all the cycles of endless preparations and expectations, dutifully digging holes and then falling into them, always busy trying to plant something fresh in the well worn patterns of the old. 

This is called waiting for the new moon.

And then there are those who know how to work in perfect stillness, imperceptibly bring the future into being.

That is called waiting for the new sun.
