It sounds like you are at the beginning of the path but are unsure where to start.
The knowledge you are seeking can be found in any number of ways. The destination is the same, but the journey is dependent upon your opinions and
The first step in seeking this 'enlightenment', if it can be called such, is to ask. It seems that you are already doing that.
The second step (IMHO) is open your mind and, for a time, forego judgment and condemnation of one path over another.
For the seeker this path is infinitely interesting and the more you look the more you find. The problem is that at some point on every journey the
seeker receives 'partial' light and suddenly the world is turned upside down. A deep depression sets in because you are facing a new, daunting,
realization about the true nature of life.
This is where those who turn cynical and critical get off the train. The path becomes narrow and difficult for a while and there is the danger of
"being dashed against the rocks of atheism" as one author puts it.
This is the long dark night of the soul. It's depressing, but you have to remember there is a greater Truth on the other side.
Above all the nature of this knowledge you seek can be summed up in two words: Know Yourself
When you finally understand this message all the knowledge/truth/secrets/wisdom will make sense and you will understand the answer to the question,
