Nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.
Empirical knowledge is by definition only learned through direct experience. We all probably had our first taste of that when somebody said, “hot, don’t touch!“ and then, we touch it anyway and get burned.
As we progress deeper into our life experience, we are given more than ample opportunity to learn empirically through a host of choices that we make. Some good. Some bad.
I think it is wise to see the world through a filter of knowledge ingested and knowledge learned. The two are very different learning experiences. Both valid. Both necessary.
Perhaps the greatest opportunity that both provide is growth. A chance to see the world through new filters and in the course of those lessons, develop into a higher state of being.
Learning empirically can be very painful at times, but when you lose, do not lose the lesson.
I hope this Thursday brings you tremendous new opportunity and perhaps a valuable lesson along the way😊
