Thoughts and Aphorisms Sri Aurobindo Jnana 1. There are two allied powers in man; knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is so much of the truth seen in a distorted medium as the mind arrives at by groping, wisdom what the eye of divine vision sees in the spirit. 2. Inspiration is a slender river of brightness leaping from a vast &eternal knowledge, it exceeds reason more perfectly than reason exceeds the knowledge of the senses. 3. When I speak, the reason says, “This will I say”; but God takes the word out of my mouth and the lips say something else at which reason trembles. 4. I am not a Jnani, for I have no knowledge except what God give me for His work. How am I to know whether what I see be reason or folly? Nay, it is neither; for the thing seen is simply true &neither folly nor reason. 5. If mankind could but see though in a glimpse of fleeting experience what infinite enjoyments, what perfect forces, what luminous reaches of spontaneous knowledge, what wide clams of our being lie waiting for us in the tracts which our animal evolution has not yet conquered, they would leave all &never rest till they had gained these treasures. But the way is narrow, the doors are hard to force, and fear, distrust & skepticism are there, sentinels of Nature, to forbid the turning away of our feet from her ordinary pastures.
