I received this quote in an email and thought to share it with everyone:
“Acquire Knowledge. It enables its possessor to distinguish right from wrong, it lights the way to Heaven; it is our friend in the desert, our society in solitude, our companion when friendless, it guides us to happiness, it sustains us in misery.”
~ saying of The Holy Prophet Muhammad, upon whom be peace.
The difference between our modern level of wealth versus primitive humanity is not based upon money, gold, or treasure. It is based upon knowledge. Money is not true wealth. Knowledge is wealth.
Thank you for explaining this in today’s time!
Beautiful quotes, both of them…

Hmmm…I was on a conference recently where the instructor said knowledge has to be digested, that the accumulation of knowledge without proper use and application creates mental ama (waste). So to acquire and churn, till it under and use it as fertile ground feels right.
And with knowledge comes responsibility.
Yes, with knowledge comes responsibility… the ability to respond… responds-ability
