Becoming what you know.
Intellectuals 'think' they 'know' stuff.
But intellectual 'knowing' sees knowledge as possessions. Things. Snippets. Facts. Theories.
Actual 'knowing' is being what is known.
If what you know does not enrich you, you really never knew it.
True knowing is knowing that knowing is unimportant.
Any other knowing serves no purpose.
True knowing is a ladder that serves to escape a burning house.
After use, the ladder is left behind.
Knowing, never seeks to adorn itself with knowledge.
It never uses itself as a weapon.
Rather, as a launch pad, to greater heights.
A ladder to the stars.
