A breath taking journey


A new post at Blunt knife, took so long, I am just lazy.

A journey in to yourself is scary, but worth taking, I keep going knowing fully well that I am going nowhere and I have to come back to where I started, back to square one.
Foolish thing to do ?
No
time wasted ?
No
Energy wasted ?
No
You are a lot better than some one who has not moved out of the square one, who is too confident, who knows for sure that its a waste of time and who thinks he has all the answers.
The journey opens the windows
Fresh light, fresh knowledge
and the knowledge makes me aware of my ignorance.
What's the use of the knowledge which makes me aware of my ignorance
I have to know how much I do not know. Its pretty much the whole thing.
I have to keep going,
Yes the journey is worth taking.
No answers. No results.

George
My ignorance keeps my feet on the ground

Rauf said...

suresh
like the governer our Rajni has not gone to Venus or Mars, our friend tosses the cigarette only on this planet.

Not having the patience to watch a tree grow has given us the internet.

word verification, yes there was a lot of spam in the form of comments ranging from road builders, earth movers to university education. Let me remove it for a while and see.
I am removing now, right after I post this comment.

What is this journey all about, Rauf?

Rauf said...

EEEYA ! I made it, I was expecting a comment from you God.
You found me before I could find you., please give me your phone number, I'll arrange a press meet. Lot of people are pissed with you,
me for one. You better be prepared for some nasty questions.

what seems to be the problem in whites road rauf ?

Rauf said...

Too much traffic. afraid to cross the road. I used to play on this very road as a kid. Now the road is
busy and my mind is cluttered and confused.
What is God doing ? He is refusing to stay in India. Please remind him that there is a place called Bihar, I think he forgot about it.

gods assistant... said...

the traffic is a tough part, we will deny many playing on the road with vehicles. mind cluttered n confused is easy, cos its your home work. god loves india very much, otherwise why so many branches all over ? bihar is no worry now, bigger problems in america, we all very busy there.
what else rauf ?

Rauf said...

What else ? you should know what else, you are god's assistant. You should know what my problem is.
Even God has settled down in america ? hope HE has the green card for operating there.

gods assistant... said...

i know too many things rauf, its confusing for me aswell, its easier if the subject prioritieses (i dont speak english at home) the issues. your problem seems that your problem does not have a silver lining. carefull what u wish for.
god doesnt belong anywhere, he likes pluto the best, sometimes every artist hates his creations.
