Why is that? 🙂
“Education” many times is used as a way to understand the world. The more “educated” some one is, that means that this person has invested a large amount of time and resources to follow a particular tradition.
“Education” means to maintain our learned standards as “truth.” Many times, we are taught that “true” education will allow someone to think “on his own.” However, that cannot be “true” for the reference always points back to what is already known, what is safe.
In other words, I cannot defy the “law of gravity,” therefore; ghosts shouldn’t exist. To believe in the existence of ghosts is to defy the law of gravity as a “law” which applies to everything.
With this, I am a victim of my own close-mindness.
People being cured miraculously through a different kind of knowledge, which is not “scientific” is another example.
Our “beloved” science has no explanation for those “facts.”
Most of us probably know Dr. Wayne Dyer. He is a well-known writer of “self-help books” worldwide.
He has experienced some type of “surgery” which is not typical. Thanks to him then, “entity surgery” (ghosts) may become popular.
Likewise, something similar happen with this spiritual knowledge known as gyan. Many are not concerned with it because they can only see their existence in this life as all there is. To have an “unlimited” vision of time is not for everyone. Through gyan we have the tools to understand the “game of life.”
This knowledge does not sell “widgets” thus, our society does not see its benefit. Besides science “demonstrates” that anything but what they say is not real, in fact; is an hallucination.
Therefore, if you do not want to be called “crazy,” better stick with the “rat lab” and the theories and the Ph.Ds and their books, CDs and their obscure language.
Don’t show them this, because even though it exists and it works…it is not “real” for them…:-)
Gyan, on the other hand; defies everything we have known before.
Someone without education cannot have a pattern of beliefs to go to for reference of “reality.”
That is why usually a person without education will have an advantage on this. That person usually goes by experience alone, which is a meaningful way to relate with hos own reality rather than by intellectual understanding of concepts, which is deceiving; for it will not bring any satisfaction to the soul.
The “drawback” of not having education is that we will not be able to explain this gyan to someone who has that educational background in a way that “makes sense” to them.
Not everyone is bi-lingual, in this sense; but everyone could respect each other perspective rather than labeling something which they are incapable of understanding as “false.”
Gyan as we know it from the Sakar Murli, is not conveyed with the sanskaras of “worldly education.” It is conveyed with the sanskaras of someone with life experiences.
The greatest authority, is the authority of experience.
Ask Dr. Wayne Dyer… and beg him to put his “experience” with “John of God” (watch videos above) in scientific terms… Good luck! 🙂
