Day 24 - A picture of something you wish you could change.
Ignorance. I wish I could just wave a magic wand and all the ignorant people in the world would get their shit together.
I’m stealing this quote from the website where I found the image, because it pretty much sums it up.
“Ignorance is a form whose composition is of this world. When it advances, there is darkness; when it retreats, there is light.
Sometimes you find that he [man] is ignorant of his own qualities and praises them, while he recognizes their faults in others and criticizes them. At other times you find that a person knows his own nature and criticizes it, while praising the same in others.
The key to ignorance is being satisfied with the knowledge one possesses, and placing all one’s trust in it. The key to knowledge is the desire to exchange one level of knowledge for a higher level, together with divine grace and guidance.
The lowest quality of an ignorant man is that he lays claim to knowledge which he does not deserve; his most common characteristic is ignorance of his own ignorance, and the most extreme aspect of his ignorance is to reject knowledge.”
(Imam Jafar as-Sadiq - Lantern of the Path)
