I was looking for pictures for "accurate knowledge" on google... hardly any results. Then I looked for "garbage in garbage out, and I hit the jackpot"... I will put some of the best pictures at the end of this article... they are really funny... But now, let me get to the knowledge article.... OK, here you go:
I am reading Aristotle.
Why? It's an excellent wake-up call. It knocks you conscious... It has knocked me conscious!
2400 years ago, when Aristotle lived, people, scientists, knew very little about much of anything. They weren't less inquisitive, they didn't have less theories, they didn't argue less. They probably argued more...
They just had theories that are quite ridiculous by today's standards, knowing what we know today.
Many people walk around with an immense amount of knowledge. Yet, in their professional life, they jump from one thing to the other. They're directionless because they zigzag. They go to this direction and then they go to that direction and they go in the third direction and then they return to the first one, and on and on it goes.
That's how my life looked for years after I finished publishing the magazine and this is how my friend's life looks.
He's my chiropractor friend. He has a business, he's a chiropractor. He has been a chiropractor for 23 years. He knows a lot about how to adjust people. He has added energy work and Ayurveda but his heart isn't into it.
So he publishes a newsletter, he does self-improvement work, he volunteers, he follows a guru, he goes to India, he goes to ski, he does all kinds of things. He even recorded an audio-book for me, but after all this doing, you can see, that he has no direction, he has no path.
He has a lot of knowledge, a lot of possibilities, but no direction, no 'Guidance from The Soul.' Just restlessness, and a sense that it's all fun, and it's all good, but it isn't going anywhere.
