What is the fear of not knowing and the arrogance of knowing?
The fear of not knowing is showing ignorance, it can be seen in an angry face and in the face of dispossessed people.
The arrogance of knowing can be seen in the highly educated people with no heart, no kindness, and no compassion and belief. All are below them.
This too can be an affliction.
By recognizing it, you rid yourself of it.
- Nick Costello
Those who know don’t talk and those who talk don’t know.
Block the senses and close the mind, blunt edges, loosen tangles, soften glare, mingle dust.
This is called the Dark Enigma union; it can’t be embraced, it can’t be ignored, it can’t be enhanced and can’t be harmed, and can’t be despised, for knowing is the treasure of all beneath heaven.
- Lao Tzu
