Excerpt About Ignorance
Innate or Basic IgnoranceThe second kind of ignorance is called innate or basic. This primordial ignorance is something we are born with, something inherent to the soul that isn’t mature. So waking up is seeing through not only learned ignorance but also innate ignorance, the unclarity or the lack of understanding of what reality is. Innate ignorance has two sides: one to do with recognizing the ground of reality, the other with understanding the relationship of particulars to this ground.
