Fear and ignorance

We defend our point of view
And equate it
With the point of view of others
Without knowing it

It is a protective measure
To continue to go in the direction
That brings us joy and sorrow
Worldly pleasures, disappointments

It is our pride and ego
Not allowing us
To accept another point of view
That rises above doubt and ignorance

It is the trust in the old familiar
Fear of the new way
Fear of having made a mistake
Which is difficult to overcome

For as long as we do not really know something
We do not grant this knowledge to another person
We feel hurt
When new truths oppress us

It is not the knowledge of being better
Compared to other lifestyles
It is a knowledge of humility, not of boasting
What we see normally in the world

Knowledge of practice is required, not theory
Where all the world theorises
Not realising how to live the truth
Instead, faith is followed blindly – in ignorance

It is our lack
Longing for the truth
Leading it through muddy grounds
Instead of living, experiencing it for ourselves

We run after fashion
Do not question it
Do not know its impact, essence
Blindly follow our herd instinct

Ignorance is our biggest problem
Build truth on half-truth, ignorance
And defend our point of view
As if it were the truthโ€ฆ

Truth is beyond fashion, beyond herd instinct
It has no will to offend
But only to be true
It is in the hands of God

God offers it to us
But we reject it
Choose the way of worldly pleasures
In which we are drifting

Like a raft on an endless seaโ€ฆ

  1. Excellent lines giving us the insightful thoughts. Sometimes our ignorance takes us to the heights of misdemeanors and we remain pretending that our thoughts and Karma are righteous..

    WITH WARM REGARDS
