To be able to recognize and admit the ignorance in us, is the beginning of the path of yoga and meditation

We don’t like to hear other people telling us, or point out to us that we are ignorant, or there is ignorance in us, just like everyone whom we think that they are ignorance, but not ourselves. We think that we are either not ignorant at all, or somehow less ignorant than others. Or we think that we are very wise, or somehow wiser than others.

We get angry and irritated when other people see the ignorance in us, and be kind to point it out to us.

We refuse to admit that we are ignorant, or will get annoyed when we hear that there is no difference between us and those whom we think they are ignorant, or somehow more ignorant than us.

While we are being ignorant, we often, and like to criticize and mock other people whom we think they are ignorant, or who act ignorantly.

We easily get frustrated and angry with people and happenings that we think and believe as ignorant people and happenings. We also get frustrated and angry when other people think and believe that we are as ignorant as others whom we like to criticize and mock all the time.

We never realize, or couldn’t see, or refuse to admit the ignorance in us that is the ‘same’ as all the other ignorance that we can see and recognize in others.

To be able to recognize and admit the ignorance in us, is the beginning of the path of yoga and meditation.

Om shanti.

    It is a very good reminder, & always a timely one, that I am ignorant too. So, maybe this will help quell my frustration at the ignorance of others??
