Gaining Right Knowledge
In truth, when one is passionate to gain right knowledge and seek the pleasure of the Almighty Lord, then everything becomes easier for a person to comprehend diverse subjects. And then, becoming knowledgeable and perceptive is like gaining celestial blessings and favors.
Verily, to become exemplar and successful in our lives, we need genuine and pure learning that can inspire us to follow righteous teachings, guide us, like a lantern, in our lives and show us truth as truth and wrong as wrong so that we can learn how to live, think, act and reciprocate in the many phases of human life.
When rightly realized, knowledge and wisdom chisels one’s personality and empowers a person to garner good character.
The point is that if we adhere to upright and clear ways, and follow the teachings and lives of righteous and wise people, then it becomes simple to manage our lives, obligations, affairs, businesses and complexities.
For instance, the art of sensible questioning, out of curiosity, is a precursor to the exposé of knowledge. But, of all, we have to look for that real and veritable knowledge, which, in comparison, remains unfaultable, and in content, remains trustworthy, and which has power to expel darkness and envelope us with radiating guidance and sublime happiness.
Well, when it comes to acquiring knowledge and learning, people show vain haste. That’s totally wrong. We ought to know that labor of learning involves great commitments, and short-cuts work in no way to result anything better. It’s not that we take up a short-term course, listen well and grasp as much as it is possible, and at end, we anxiously wait for an endorsement or accreditation.
In some cases, to gain mastery in specific subjects, it takes years, and little-by-little when you perceive, ponder, reflect, apply practically in your lives, and make an audit of your learning and performance, then that’s the true learning gained within the legitimate time.
And, with the expanse of knowledge and skills everywhere, we human beings can only grasp a minute faction of it. With this little knowledge, we become scholars and great masters, but in essence, we ought to deem ourselves 'learners throughout our lives'.
In conclusion, virtuous knowledge empowers us, and when we ignore traversing on the prescribed paths and following wise precepts, we fall prey to ignorance, divergence and wrongdoings.
