ah, the tree of knowledge, that we have all eaten the fruit of! lol
Have you read Don Miguel Ruiz? I love his story, that eating from that tree indeed does give you knowledge - opinions, truths, blah blah.
havent read him, just saw a coworker with a copy of The Four Agreements
last night though...is that his best work iyo? "Four" struck me as pretty...arbitrary? Esp after The Fifth
came out, so ive been kinda waiting for reviews
"truths" i gotta wonder, what truths? Absolute Truths?
He who says he knows anything, doesn't
People interpret it as a tree of wisdom, but wisdom is merely knowing that knowledge isn't bringing you any closer to yourself
We all have our own knowledge, or own opinions which we call truths - we all are always right, in that extent.
Hence why we fight over words, anything, both sides - because they both feel that they are right, and in their own right everyone always is always right
i guess manna
isn't called "what is it?" for nothing
and i wonder if you havent just summarized speaking in tongues
"I don't know anything. Ever. It's really quite relaxing."
