When we think that we “know it” we will not seek any more.


 

 

Many people love learning and acquiring new knowledge.

 

Can knowledge be a veil in discovering the truths that we are seeking?

 

Knowledge can be obstacle

if it is considered an absolute.

 

When we consider something as an absolute

it blinds us to seeing other facets of reality.

 

The absolute knowledge that the earth was flat many centuries ago

 was an obstacle to seeing the truth.

 

A majority of new knowledge is obtained by questioning

the accepted old knowledge of the time.

 

When we no longer consider ourselves as a student

we will stop learning new knowledge.

 

When we think that we “know it”

we will not seek any more.

 

When we think that we “know it”

we are no longer curious.

 

When we stop saying:

“I do not know”

“Perhaps there is another explanation”

“This does not make sense”

“I wonder  ...”

We become frozen in our quest for truth.

 We might as well believe that the earth is flat.

 

What spiritual knowledge do we have that

we consider as absolute and

dread someone questioning it?

 

What aspects of our knowledge do we not

desire to delve into?

 

What knowledge and assumptions are stopping us

from seeking?

I love what you are saying, and how you say it, a deep wisdom embedded here, thank you! Jasmin Horst

PERHAPS, YOU ARE RIGHT...'WHEN WE THINK WE KNOW IT, WE WILL SEEK NO MORE. I SAY THIS, BECAUSE IT IS ONLY WHEN WE 'KNOW' THAT WE KNOW IT, THAT WE CONTINUALLY SEEK AND SEEK...UNTIL WE SEE 'HIM' FACE TO FACE. WELL DONE, SHERVIN, ENJOYED. THANKS FOR SHARING, LOVE AND BLESSINGS, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
