The Humble Understand

“We have to stop and be humble enough to understand that there is something called mystery.”

Paulo Coelho

The greatest gift given to humanity – the desire to know, to seek, to understand…

Arrogance knows everything.  Yet, if there is no mystery, we have nothing.

    “The humble understand”, I like that. And yet there’s always this tension between knowing when to stop searching and when to start accepting and experiencing the what is. I struggle with that dilemma. What do you think?

      You bring up an excellent point. Acceptance and experiencing are two separate activities. I think understanding is when these two come together. Perhaps that the is ultimate struggle that humanity faces. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom…

      Grazie mille. Diversi anni fa abbiamo partecipato a una scuola di italiano a Castelraimondo, Italia. Mi piace aver visitato il blog perché ha bella musica e parole. Posso praticare il mio italiano anche. Thank you so much. Several years ago we attended a Italian language school in Castelraimondo, Italy. I love stopping by your blog because it has beautiful music and words. I can practice my Italian too.

      Paulo Coelho has an extraordinary grasp of the human need to something beyond themselves. We are connecting across blogger miles – and that makes the journey all that more worthwhile….
