The society we live in seems to place a high value on knowledge. When we enter the world, we are born with a fixed essence, but NO personality. Then, slowly, we are programmed by our family, friends and our teachers.
The emphasis is always to know, to know more about everything. However we do not focus on being. We think that being simply means 'existence'. We do not recognise different levels of being.
Yet it is our being that determines our life, not our knowledge. For example we can 'know' that we should "judge not, lest we be judged ourselves". But can we do it? Can we apply the knowledge? We know we should stop smoking. Yet we cannot do it. People know many, many things, yet most is unapplied and useless.
Our leaders in politics fail to see this. Hence change never happens.
