“In this state, pure knowledge as it were approaches us to redeem us from willing and its pressure: we follow, yet only momentarily: willing, the memory of our personal goals, tears us away again and again from calm contemplation; but equally the next beautiful surroundings in which pure knowledge devoid of will presents itself to us entice us away again from willing.” -pg. 37
I’m unsure what this actually means, but it made me think. Is wanting the same as willing in this case? If so, wanting can take us away from what really matters.
