I haven’t lived much, but from my short span of life, I can say I have learned a bit. I have realized that knowledge and human thinking is too confined. It closes up things that are meant to be open. The best knowledge one can grasp is not to grasp it, but rather to hold it with an open fist. The only thing to be held onto in this life is God. For to hold on to knowledge gives power to humans and confines God in human thought, which strips Him of His infinite Greatness. Letting God be God, let’s us be human. And moreover, to claim that one can understand God’s Love, is to deny His greatness over us.
He, being Love embodied, makes Him, and Love, too big to grasp by anyone. It is more than we can experience or ever learn. We must understand that we can sometimes never understand. This is a place I have realized I want to live. Not where I believe I have come to the height of knowledge, but to a place, where, I understand, my knowledge and understanding has limits. Small finite limits. It stops. It has an end point. And from here to allow my mind to realize there is more than knowledge to retain in this life. This life isn’t based off knowing, and shouldn’t run off it as well.
Life is, in fact, passing quickly and is much too fleeting to waste away precious moments on debates and other mind-filling ideas that cannot do others any good. I believe it would be better to be filled with wisdom. Wisdom not from books or human thinking. But wisdom that surpasses common knowledge.
In end, I believe the wisest are quite often too over-looked. Those who are not telling others of their new ideas or piling up their brains with theory. The wisest among us today are rather found living life in its true depth. Taking moments for what they are, enjoying them, and always giving the gratitude back to the only one who deserves it, God.
