We grow up wanting to acquire more and more information and knowledge. Knowledge does enable us to gain high status, power and respect from society. But if we do not handle our success and power with due humility we soon get blinded by our ego. It is therefore important to achieve a balance between the heavy load of knowledge with a light mind.

Acquiring knowledge is tough but letting go of it is even more challenging. Lightening our minds is possible if we are prepared to surrender our ego of knowledge. And one of the way is to remove the clutter and calm our mind. Only then can we understand issues and problems with an open mind and by listening to our inner voice.

Please do share your views with our readers and visitors.

Thank you and have a great weekend.Β

  1. So true.. I don’t believe that with more knowledge comes more success and sometimes if this success turns you into an egoistic person, it will harm you and other around. Grow, gain knowledge in everyday life journey, be successful, but don’t forget to be humble wherever you are

      Beautiful and wise words indeed, You are so right ego can posses us from any source. Be it knowledge or power or even by doing good acts. People give donations which is good if done with humility and taking care not to show-off.
      Thank you for your lovely comments and my apologies for a belated reply.


  2. It was very clear and straight to the point. I truly think that one way to clear the mind and still keep its knowledge is to align it with the heart to direct it. After all the heart knows more and better. Nice writing and quotation picture.

    Well said! And, if we don’t balance them out, the natural order will.

    Indeed! We cannot enjoy what we have if we remain busy gathering. One more drawback of today’s education system and society structure is that we are complexing everything – professions, law, business strategy, economy, living… everything. We don’t understand what is what and so we need experts for every needs. Simplifying life is not only a challenge but an adventure we undertake. Such quotes of wisdom guide the blindfolded us throughout the path. Thank you so much for the positive wibes, Dilipji. Much needed at this moment.

    Shifting our mindset to one of “beginners mind” keeps the ego in check and our mind and heart open.

      Liviing in the moment is the way. Hard but possible. Devoting some time to Meditation whenever possible help us to connect with our origional self and inner space. Existence is showering blessings for all living beings. We miss them as we are rarely availabble to accept these blessings.col
