Silent Knowledge

In the book, The Power of Silence, Don Juan talks about “Silent Knowledge” as a state of awareness that mankind was once anchored in. It was described as a position of the assemblage point that was governed not by reason, but by intent. He went on to say how mankind was now anchored in the place of “reason” – rather than silent knowledge – but that due to our true nature as humans, we still long for the place we have lost, the place of deeper wisdom and knowing the infinity of human potential that is embodied in the expression, “silent knowledge”.

Silent Knowledge is something that all of us have, something that has complete mastery, complete knowledge of everything. But it cannot think, therefore it cannot speak what it knows.

“Sorcerers believe that when man became aware that he knew, he lost sight of what he knew. This silent knowledge, which you cannot describe, is of course, intent – the spirit, the abstract. Man’s error was to want to know it directly, the way he knew everyday life. The more he wanted, the more ephemeral it became. Man gave up silent knowledge for the world of reason. The more he clings to the world of reason, the more ephemeral intent becomes.”
