Is Knowledge of Everything Necessary!

~QuorAnswers by Swamy

For any action, there has to be a purpose. Without purpose, thoughts and actions are pointless. So, what’s the purpose of knowing everything…

Is it to prove a point to someone (which isn’t going to be of any value to one’s quality of living) or to comprehend the limitation of the human being (ability, capacity, time, energy, etc) to know only a limited number of things?

QAT_Swamy1The lifetime available to a human being is limited (by breath, not time). The cosmos is so boundless and unimaginably vast that it’s practically impossible for a person to know everything about existence. Even if one limits oneself to knowing about this tiny planet (which is actually a speck of dust on the cosmic scale), a lifetime isn’t sufficient – even in the digital age where information is practically just a “Hello Alexa” or “OK Google” away.

 

Life the way humans know and live it is primarily just survival. However much one tries to know about it, the predictable routine of a BAUHumbug existence on the survival plane isn’t going to change. Sadly, most humans are stuck in this rut, for many a lifetime.

Life, the way it is,” or Reality is far more magnificent, incredibly complex and immensely enchanting to know about. The path to know the Truth (about creator, creation, existence, et al) is known as spirituality. It is ancient, not bound to any belief system (such as Religion) and open to all. In this digital age, there’s no dearth of information about all things spiritual, though most of them are just information and not wisdom (gained through first hand experience). Treading that path to know the Truth, as an intimate internal experience (known as self-realisation or enlightenment) is pretty much the only thing worth knowing. And that’s exactly why anyone is gifted with the opportunity to be human!

May Grace be with you to know the Truth – in this lifetime itself!
