Tree of Knowledge



The Tree of Life

You, the human race are the best of my creations,

You will live and live,

And give and give till you are untied,

In happiness and pain!

My bliss will be born in you,

Love is a continuum,

That is the mission of humanity,

You will see every day in the Life Tree.

You learn and learn,

My best of creations.

---APJ ABDUL KALAM



Life is the biggest teacher.

When learning stops, you stop growing. You start to lag behind. You start to get frustrated with limited thought pattern. You start to lose interest and feel everything boring. You start to become dull. You start to become depressed. You don’t feel freshness in life.

There is no age limit for learning. Love learning, experiment, always be in learning mode. Learning should be a lifelong companion. Think that you are a student of life. Never have “I know everything” attitude.

Don’t learn for the sake of learning. Don’t try to compete with others. Learn because you want to learn and evolve. Learn because you want to truly understand about the subject at hand. Take your own time but learn it. Understand that each person is in his own stage of learning. So respect everyone. There will be something to learn from everyone. Each person is unique by himself.

Start the day by praying and with a thought to learn something new.

Learning is growth. It is very important for us to realize that there is learning in everything. Every struggle and situation you come across in life has something to teach. Learn it. There are 2 ways you can look at these situations

1. Grumbling, blaming and making noise about what happened and not learning.

2. Trying to see the positive aspect and inner workings, learning from them and moving ahead. You are the owner of your life and your life path depends on the choices you make. It is up to you to choose.

There is a Chinese proverb I remember “learning is a treasure that follows its owner everywhere”.

A wise man is one who uses all his energy towards growing and becoming an evolved being.

THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!!

Hi Gandharv,
nice post. Keep learning is the motto. If you stop learning you start going behind. I like it.

Deepthi said...

A shloka from the Upanishad says
Asato ma sat gamaya
Tamaso ma jyothir gamaya
Mrityor ma amritam gamaya

which means
Lead me from the unreal to the real
Lead me from darkness to light
Lead me from death to immortality

Learning is thus a travel from the real to the unreal, from darkness to light. When this learning leads to the inner self we finally find our release from the cycle of life and death and become one with the infinite.

@ rama : Thank you. Yes very true when learning stops, we stop growing.

@ deepthi: Thank you for your valuable comments. I would suggest everyone should read and understand this shloka.
