When you are given knowledge, what do you do with it?
The theme and the knowledge that is discussed in this thread is widely known, but perhaps the understanding of the knowledge is limited to our set
confinements. It seems we like to pick and choose what to get out of things, and discard the rest. I like to think of it like school.. You have a
text book that teaches certain subjects, and the next grade a different book teaches the same subjects but in a little more detail.
What I'm saying is we actively choose the limit of understanding. We push that bar a bit further when we start to feel empty, craving for more
answers. It seems our own void of knowledge is a cause for suffering, and learning is a way to ease this suffering.
It would be unfair to pick apart followers of established religions and tell them that they aren't even following their own religion the way it's
supposed to be tought. For example, religion has the foundation to guide people to be 'good', socially responsible, and quite bluntly...on some
occasions the people who follow these religions can be a bit of a well...bastard!
All I have to do is say the word "crusade" and you'll know what I'm talking about.
But what I'm trying to get at is....we see nothing wrong with this. It is to our own understanding that we are always doing some sort of good, for
others or ourselves.
In addition, what I'm also trying to say is, I am no exception. I engage in self-ish, wasteful, counter-productive activities when I posess the great
knowledge that is passed around on here. But I also understand that it is my own unique path, one that dictates and is dictated by planets, and the
stars and beyond in one grand pattern.
I just find it interesting really. And rather silly. The way we choose to intepret knowledge in stages that suit our current situation best. I guess
its a pretty good way to do a full analysis of the information, right?
Well theres my 2 cents on something I had on my mind.
I haven't been around here in a while, I'm just getting over a spiritual slump. Did anyone pay attention to that last full moon we just had?
Man... For that like 4 day period I was depressed as hell. I'm never depressed. I need to get back into meditation man, instead of playing video
games. Well it was a good escape
I see all is well here
