Dive into Yourself
“abundance of knowledge does not teach men to be wise”
It’s a criticism of those of us who only want to collect knowledge. His curiosity was amazing but his life didn’t get any better. Collecting knowledge but that knowledge is just a memory in his head that is not useful. It has no impact on the good of his life. The abundance of knowledge also does not guarantee people to be wise. You don’t have to be surprised if anyone understands anything. When he was asked what he was able to answer. He was wise, if what he said, what he conveyed, what he knew gave birth to wisdom in his life. That’s just called a wise man. Because if just to know, small children can also memorize theories, memorize concepts and then re-conveyed.
“those who love wisdom must investigate many things”
These people are known as philosophers. Philosophers not only read from the outside but also dive inside. Got to investigate a lot of things.
“applicants for wisdom do what I have done”
The person who carries out the wisdom will definitely do what I have done. What do I do?
Yes, the first thing to do is to investigate yourself. Read, dive into yourself. And what’s the result?
“people ought to know themselves”
People should know about him. But in the end the conclusion is…
“I am as iam not”
If we delve into ourselves, we will meet ‘I’m not me’. Why? Because we usually consider ourselves bla bla bla bla, but so we dive ourselves. turns out not like that. We consider ourselves wise, we consider ourselves diligent, hardworking students and many more. But so we dive ourselves turned out we weren’t like that.
About wisdom too,
“Dog bark at what they don’t understand”
what does that mean?
The point is that people who talk too much mean he doesn’t understand. Because actually, people who already understand will be silent. If people are busy discussing something, especially to blame others about something, usually he does not understand, not sure about his views. Just like a dog, if he barks a lot, he doesn’t know about it. So, we don’t talk too much, because it shows that we don’t understand what we’re talking about yet.
The next advice is…
“Its not too late to seek a newer world”
Life is essentially a change. Our shortcomings are many, we build a new world. It’s still not too late, the walk let it go, we build a new world. So, what is the key to building a new world? The answer is awareness. Why? Because..
“Other man are unaware of what they do when they are awake just as they are forgetful of what they do when they are asleep”
Our lives are often unconscious, meaning, subconsciously, we do things without consideration. This happens usually because of routine, because of the pressure of the surrounding community.
A little advice from my teacher on “Dive into Yourself”
