Normal to Healthy
Paths to the Liberation of
From Normal to
Healthy Georg Kuhlewind prescribes a methodical path to achieving strength and
harmony within human consciousness, not through chanting or
"blissing out", but through conscious application to one's own state of
mind and state of being.
How much practical time do we
usually devote to the general art of being human?
This practical guide to the
self-healing of consciousness―it is both a spiritual psychology and
a contemporary manual of the inner life―begins by laying out very
clearly the unhealthy, unfree nature of today's consciousness.
leads to discovering the key to the liberating consciousness from
its habitual blind spots and automatisms. The realization of the
universal primacy of cognition and the universal availability of its
ground, the free attention.
By the use of attention a person,
practicing the exercise given by the author, begins to expand the
range of his or her possibilities of understanding and doing. The
exercises―based upon the Eightfold Path of the Buddha and the
cognitive spiritual path of Rudolf Steiner―lead to a new life in
which superconscious intuitions gradually take the place of
This new life is a
universal-human life of improvisatory, living thinking: a life of
presence, pure joy, which is health for human beings.
I believe that our central problem is that we do not know what or
who a human being really is. We lack this knowledge because we have
no valid picture of the human WORD, no image of human language, of
words in general. This is why we have such trouble with words, why
we hit upon the right word so rarely. Everything we do to, for, and
against each other is speech of some kind, or ought to be. Yet we
are interested in anything but words, these very words by means of
which we do everything else. Because we don't know what words are we
don't know what humans are . . . .
