You Know It’s A Powerful Read When People Are Too Scared To Read It

December 7, 2015

If you choose ignorance you
choose poorly
Hi Luv et alii,
The Little Red Book, Mein Kampf, Gulliver’s Travels, The Taming of the Shrew may be boring, stupid, racist, or any number of things but no one’s afraid to read them. These books, pamphlets or plays all fall into the general category of ‘Literature‘ 

There is another category (which actually includes literature) called Sacred Texts. These texts scare most people so much they won’t even read once, let alone reread and study them.

This truly is a sadness. A sadness because Sacred Texts contain some of the finest Literature ever written. They also contain, Wisdom, Compassion, Justice, Morality, Ethics, Mercy, Humility and an honest rendering of what it means to be human.

This is of course what scares so many people. If they were to read and study the Sacred Texts they would find the truth about what it means to be human. Then they would have no excuses. 

But for many it is just so much more comfortable to live in ignorance. 

Take care, stay safe,
The Old Man
