We have come onto this earth knowing everything, all that needs to be done is to discover that which is within us and that which is in the world. The society into which we are born prescribes the type of people we become. What is acceptable to one community may not necessarily be acceptable to another. Sometimes we get so bombarded with information from the outside that we forget how to think.
All information is available at our fingertips, thanks to technology. We take it in but how much of that information is digested. When we are asked about our opinion we fail miserably, or just regurgitate that which we find on websites.
Everyone can be knowledgeable today, however wisdom is what we require to live a successful, healthy and fruitful life. A wise person is one who acquires knowledge and applies it to his life, can judge for himself right from wrong and makes use of his experiences in futuredecisions.
The capacity to learn is a gift; there are people who are born with physical disabilities, the gift of being able to learn being snatched away from them before they are given a chance. Be grateful for your senses as this is God’s gift to you. It is admirable indeed to see the sacrifices these people born with disabilities make to learn, then what’s our excuse?
The ability to learn is a skill; not everyone is born alike, there are people who have dyslexia and ADHD, who want to learn like everyone else. It is not by choice that they are unable to do so, there are still others who struggle to learn and yet they try. Having the ability to learn is a skill, why waste it?
The willingness to learn is a choice; after all is said and done, the majority of humanity have no physical or mental disabilities, yet they choose to be complacent and accept a meagre existence as their best. We are capable of so much more and yet we choose oblivion over knowledge and darkness over light. Do not rob yourself of becoming all that you were meant to be, for your sake and for the sake of your loves ones.
