This quote is in continuity of my immediate previous post, “Enlighten Knowledge”.
It is a fact that came to my mind while I was replying to Dahlia on her beautiful comment on that post; she is on my Follow and one of my ardent readers and a very good Blogger friend. She herself has a fantastic Blog worth a visit. Please visit Dahlia and share your ideas and experiences with her.
In regard to the quote there is so much of knowledge to be known but how much are we to know is a big question. To lead a happy life and to cater to our needs and the demands of our profession, vocation or jobs we are to acquire certain amount of knowledge. Apart from that, what is it that is needed as far as to lead a happy life. Questions arise to all – Why is this life? What is this life? For what is the purpose, that we are here, in this vast universe on a tiny planet which we call as Earth? Such are the questions which pester or bother us in life at some point of time. This has been the state of affairs not only now but since millenniums past.
Great men have explored and have found the answers for them; so they have been called sages, saints, rishis and enlightened persons.
Knowledge has been classified as two types. Knowledge that which is concerned to our practical day to day life and the other one is to know of our own self, thereby the secret of the existential.
To know about the transcendental knowledge, there are various schools of thought. Philosophies that preach and mythologies proclaim of certain facts. All these do say and give answers to questions that arise. So, then, which one or to what extent are we to know of these is a big question.
We have to be in the path. Enlightenment may happen anytime to anyone. It may take a second, a few years or so many lives.
Check the Oscillation of the Mind.
Be a witness to the Mind.
I feel some of you are already in the path and have an inclination to the spiritual world or want to know more of the beyond. Everyone in their own way has reached to a certain extent in the path; one needs to meet someone who could show the path further, one who shall throw light upon the way. Apart from your personal study, listening to discourses and/or angel messages there are few more things on the path one can adopt.
I give here below the links to some of the sites that may lead you to your continued studies in the wake of enlightenment.

KNOW LIFE BEST
DEATH MAKES KNOW LIFE BEST
WHEN CLOSE TO HEART LEFT BODY
FORM MERGE IN FORMLESS
When death of a person close to us occurs, it tends to make us know life better. Otherwise life will just be moving onwards; routine, fun, job, study, family, business, interactions, attractions so on and so forth. Death makes know the end of life; so we are not going to live here for long. Death itself has made know life better since ancient times and all the scriptures, all philosophies and the knowledge of life itself is probably based on that. Can we just imagine life to be permanently here; how would it be like? Now, this shall bring so many thoughts, and may be ideas too. Maybe; you can have a big laugh over this.
Ha! Ha!! Ha!!!
All forms in this universe are bound by time and space and have a life time of their own and are again bound to end and merge in the formless. Hence, the last line; ruminate.
PONDER ON THE CREEPER
Creeper! Everybody knows of the creeper plant which grows in all gardens, farms, road sides and forests. Poor thing it has very less strength to stand up and show its stature, it needs something to support it and with that dependence it grows, makes and shows its stand and presence.
This is one more living being which sets an example. After all what is that, it is just a creeper, what’s so great about it? Its true, one feels to say so. But there is something here to be pondered.
Now, first let us explore the silent features of the creeper. It requires very little land to take its birth. It does not expect much of a care to grow big. It does not have a sturdy stem to erect and stand straight or inclined. It is of innumerable variety. It may grow as edible leaves. It may produce a vegetable. It generates flowers, for medicinal purposes, or just good looking beautiful ones. Its greatest weakness and also at the same time the strongest quality which we find in very, very few living things; this is though a contradiction, but its true, that is, its basic element, it is the support on which it exhibits itself as a Living Thing.
Now, I would not like to compare a Human to the Creeper, although humans are having so many qualities of a creeper. If we can understand the life of a creeper, our lives could be much nicer and finer. For that matter we humans do depend on many people and things; from our birth till death. Mother, Father, Siblings, Friends, Teacher and the whole Society at large; are those living things we want. Water, Fire, Air, Petrol, Electric Power, Metals, and what not, how many things can I mention, you know more than me I suppose.
But for a creeper, how much does it expect, just one support that only gives us the example. If its growing in the direction that we do not want, we cut it, it then tries to grow in the way where it gets another support. We can make it grow, and give a support, be it a stick, a pillar, a wall, a wire, or anything that we want to make it look better and beautiful. It can be groomed like a child is groomed and protected by the Parents. As it grows bigger it will show its beauty that we wanted it to become.
We are now to identify what are our great weaknesses and strong points. How can we make our lives better and successful?
Bodily Weak! Putting the mind at work on something else shall help and build it strong like the creeper. The creeper becomes stronger day by day as it grows with the available support.
Not happy with the subject of your education, change it to the one which you like the most, like how the creeper finds the best way to take the support.
Not happy with the place you are living or profession you are doing, its most of the time inevitable, but taking the support of something or someone, I mean exploring the support, that also can overcome. Watch the creeper carefully, it does so.
Come what may or say that it has already come, think of the creeper. That shall solve and place before you the answer.
The behaviour of the human mind is to seek an excuse, any possible excuse for not to grow in competence, compassion, compatibility ….so on and so forth. But the creeper shall not say so, it finds ways and means, how competent it is and that it can be. In some cases it grows so well that it overpowers the one on which it has grown.
It depends though, but its free to grow and live.
That’s making Life Loveable, Peaceful and Successful.
The Creator has given so many such Creations to know and learn from.
