I 've written a blog of the same title and now I find myself writing again. I don't know exactly, I'm beginning to realize that this world is so huge that all of it is beyond the scope of our thoughts, even imagination. I'm too small compared to the universe and so the things I know and I've known aren't that comparable to earth has to offer. I think.
The quest for knowledge is there, to be informed, to know but these things like human existence aren't permanent. Even the truth changes as it may be true at certain times but some don't last, they just do.Facts may be facts at a time but they may not be the same tomorrow.
Then what are the things we have to know then and which we should disregard? Like nature, I think we are blessed with abundance from food to the many things that support our daily living but then we can't have it all, why? life is short and we don't need them all. We have different desires and we don't have the same goals.
Some people have different perspectives on ther ultimate satisfaction, others have their own set of ambitions and ideals that they work for. We can't simply judge them as we are different from one another, regardless of blood and of nationality . We are all unique at the same time we are similar to the rest and that unite us as human beings. We're lucky our mentation is perhaps better than the other creatures, though yes, we for now I believe, have the best intellect among all the animals.
What's my point? We need to be informed at the same time expand our horizons for meaningful existence and so we have to cultivate our hearts and spirits for better living. I guess we are nothing without soul, without compassion, understanding and kindness. Humility has also its say, and .... common sense.
We choose to believe what accords to our personal views and at some point attitudes and dreams but it doesn't mean we have to abhor others way of thinking, it's theirs, the rest aren't the same as how one thinks. They have their own objectives, we have our respective aims. I remember the more one improves his knowledge, the better he understands supposedly; however; it could be the other way as the more one gets informed , the higher a person's expectations not just to himself.
Ignorance isn't a disease after all, it may cause one to fall down or one to be fine, just fine. After all, we have the power to reject what to know and not, and that is on what makes us BETTER as each of us think, would.
