Storytelling brings enlightenment

brainpickingsI want to point you to a great article that contains many important observations about how storytelling brings true wisdom and understanding (what I often refer to as “enlightenment”) to information.

“A great story, then, is not about providing information, though it can certainly inform — a great story invites an expansion of understanding, a self-transcendence. More than that, it plants the seed for it and makes it impossible to do anything but grow a new understanding — of the world, of our place in it, of ourselves, of some subtle or monumental aspect of existence.”

Hope you enjoy.
