The excert from ISOTM on knowledge and being was very fitting. Made me think about my life a lot as well and putting it into context. I was simply working on aquiring knowledge without improving my being and the understanding that comes with it. I would read material and think on what to look for in my life and environment, getting caught up in all the horrors that may be out there. Trying to work things out rationally with the material read is just a mental exercise, and dealing with the related emotional reactions from such thought processes was quite overwhelming. To think one really knows whats going on just because knowledge is aquired does seem pretty foolish in hindsight. Until one works on increasing their being in conjunction with knowledge, and by doing so shedding programs and other subjective mental/emotional perceptions, they won't truly be able to SEE with the light of understanding/wisdom which is objective.
This session reminded me how hard it can be dealing with personal relationships. I have just ended one of 2 1/2 years and am dealing with the transition, questioning if what I did was the right thing. I won't get into it here, for I feel it may be excess noise, but have been contemplating putting it up on a thread to discuss. I assume there is a propper place to do so if one intended?
