It seems our culture puts a high degree of importance on developing intellectualism. There are even laws that force us to subject ourselves to an intellectual environment by forcing us to attend school for a certain amount of years or face imprisonment. The amazing thing about this forced indoctrination is the fact that most people not only go along with it but see it as a wonderful and necessary way of living. Yes I know the argument that is brought up to anyone who questions the value of education. You would argue that I wouldn’t be able to even write about this topic if I wasn’t taught to read and write in school. OK, yes I did learn to read and write in school but does it really take a person ten years to learn to read and write. What I’m saying is what else was happening to my mind while I was sitting behind that school desk for all those years.
I argue that other areas of my life were stifled during those years. I was not able to develop my awareness during my school years, which resulted in a lot of needless pain and suffering in my life. I did however spend as much time as possible developing my awareness whenever I had the chance, and finally was able to come into the light from that long dark tunnel of intellectualism. And now I’m at the point where I can write something like this and not need the intellectuals of the world to approve or even comment on this post. It’s enough that I enjoy writing like this from my heart and because of my awareness, this enjoyment is enough.
