A revelation of Truth
A truth seeker asked: At exactly which point Do you start to realize That life without knowledge Is death in disguise?
The stars answered: underneath the surface of the cells, below the current in the main stream, that’s where the answers to the Truth begin to reveal themselves.
How do you know what you know? (Hint: The answers cannot be found in any book, chapter or essay on epistemology.) “It is only after we forget all our learning that we begin to know,” said Henry David Thoreau, and Einstein said “the only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”
How do you learn? Why do you learn? Erykah Badu said if your knowledge was your wealth it would be well earned. So I built a fire and watched my (old) self burn, learning to die as the sun appeared in the sky while the world turned.
As I died I started a revolution.
Inside of my own mind. Because throughout the history of humankind, in every epoch of time, if you really look deep enough, revolution you will find.
The Chinese Mandate of Heaven (created in the Zhou dynastic period from 1122 to 256 B.C.) says that Tian (heavenly forces) will show approval or disapproval with the ruling dynasty through Natural causes and human responses. See earthquakes, ice cap melting, tsunamis and other environmental crises, the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street. The Declaration of Independence says that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends—life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness—it is the right of the People to alter or abolish it. The time is now! It is time that you acknowledge It. But what is a revolution? And what is the government?
The age of information has opened a global conversation, the collective wisdom and consciousness of our species is expanding, enlarging and growing with technologies and new methods of communication:
First came speech. (100,000 B.C.)
Until 70,000 years later homo sapiens learned to teach (30,000 B.C.). Cave paintings appeared on the walls, symbols created so we can evolve, manipulated by the visionaries and writers of new laws. “Just as the small child first learns to draw before it masters more complex forms of communication, so homo sapiens’ first attempts at passing information through time took the form of paintings,” said someone once.
Passing information through time.
I suppose this is what communication does? I may agree, but who am I to be a judge?
(I’m just a writer who speaks of life, learning and love)
From hieroglyphs to petroglyphs, cuneiform to pictographs. Tablets to manuscripts, writing new alphabets. We are the writers of history, but most of history is counterfeit.
Soon books and newspapers were making [select members of] populations literate, in the last couple thousands years we began to see the benefits: now we understand more about our own intelligence.
Invented radio and television and now you have the internet, plus phones are getting smarter. So where do you get your news? Give me some scoop on a contemporary current affair, with statistics you can prove. What’s happening in the world today?
I told you before, I’ll say it again. I’ve said it vocally, I’ve said it with the pen. History is the revolution that never ever ends. The world is revolving, people are revolting, the solar system is spinning in a phenomenon we know as time, the fabric of the universe is created by your Mind. The Revolution is you!
There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning, said Krishnamurti.
