25 Oct The original sin of knowledge acquistion
Original sin is said to result from the Fall of Man, when Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden.
And we still continue to crave for knowledge – the most potent hallucinogen which is not only postponing the awakening of man’s consciousness but also making him dream that he is awake.
Ironically, knowledge therefore is the biggest cause of ignorance, the inner darkness.
The addictive nature of knowledge acqusition makes it a never ending, ever increasing pursuit.
And more he acuires knowledge, farther does man move away from the realties of existence.
“Missing the mark” again and again.
PS : The root of the word sin in Hebrew means “missing the mark”. 🙂
