Knowledge vs. Learning

"...A school is a place of learning and so it is sacred. The churches, temples and mosques are not sacred for they ave stopped learning. They believe; they have faith and that denies entirely the great art of learning, whereas a school...must be entirely devoted to learning, not only about the world around us, but essentially about what we human being are, why we believe the way we do, and the complexity of though...Learning and the accumulation of knowledge are two very different things. Knowledge must always be incomplete, whereas learning is order. Disorder is essentially conflict, self-contradiction and division between becoming a being. Order is a state in which disorder has never existed. Disorder is the bondage of time.

The secret is in simplicity, living, creating and loving. I mean, it is fine to play with complexity, as a way to stretch and play with our minds, but beyond that there is really nothing more. However, our mind can become tired, and when we really need its energy, clarity and support we find it confused and drunken. The mind, which is supposed to work as a clarifier, as a pair of lenses to be kept clear, clings with fear and constructs a factious form of love, life and experience.
