When knowledge is a trap

We are all unknowingly narrow-minded for our thoughts can only span as far as our senses can perceive.

Tolerance is what keeps this world as peaceful as it is, so much so that wisdom is imitated as suppression of intolerance.  Our actions and thoughts are limited by the society, the people, the city, the religion that our neighborhood recognizes with. We are so consumed by our despise and intolerance that we cannot see beyond the horizon, and before we realize we are trapped in the vicinity of our own knowledge.

The thought about ‘traveling the world’ is not merely exotic but rather intellectual and wise. Its people, the conversations and the ability to perceive life from all its facets are the key to release ourselves from the trap of our little knowledge.

    “Its people, the conversations and the ability to perceive life from all its facets are the key to release ourselves from the trap of our little knowledge.” – Well said Shefali. They would, I suppose, serve to broaden our horizons..!

    A meaningful tribute to those wings of knowledge!!
    It descends with elegant surprise for an ardent admirer of your rich expressions….for it’s been elusive while being expected, yet arrives when tolerance has lost almost all proven tracks to truth….
    While absolute tolerance leads to entrapment of all imaginations of mind, it offers an inexplicable space to sense a great string of liberation of thoughts within its folds and frills of wisdom. Perhaps, life grants nothing absolute. Neither it obeys set laws of inertia….it demands newer layers of illusions…newer sorcery to tempt human mind to get entrapped in newer knowledge…and it keeps on uncovering newer and newer masks to finally reveal a great incomprehensible void within…and, perhaps the essence of knowing is to pursue that end where knowledge loses all its relevance…
    Great to read you after lost moments of silence….
    Regards,

    On the brighter side, this opens up tremendous opportunities in educating and ‘rehabilitating’ ourselves… in broadening our minds. No?
