The way we know we are getting smarter as we get older is realizing that we don’t know near as much as we thought we did and there is only a small handful of things that we are absolutly sure about and the things that really matter are mostly based on faith.
“Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance…”. -Proverbs 1:5
As I get older, I am realizing that most of what I think I know is almost the exact opposite of what I thought I knew. We get a lot of it backwards and if we are honest, then we begin to understand that a lot of what we thought we had finally put right side up, is the wrong side down.
This world we are living in is trying to convince us that we live in a wasted time and a scary place, but the truth is we live in the most amazing of times and this world is an incredible place filled with miricles.
We need to learn to empty out all of the negative, so that we can open ourselves to all of the positve that is all around us. So the way to begin emptying the negative is by realizing there is so much we don’t know and the real fun in life is learning something new. And the really good news is that this Universe is so infinite that there is always something new to learn.
