Pure in Heart…

*

We can consider knowledge as a function of being.

*

A change in the being of the knower

brings corresponding changes in the tone and tenor of knowledge.

*

In growing from child to adult for example

knowledge becomes more conceptual

and systemic in form and its factual utility increases.

*

These gains are offset by a deterioration

in the quality of immediate apprehension

and a blunting or loss of intuitive insight.

*

The astronomer equipped with a telescope

appears to possess a god-like perception

when compared to the sky-gazer with a naked-eye.

*

God-like in scope and detail but less romantic perhaps

less prone to flights of mythological fancy.

*

What we know depends on what we

choose to make of ourselves!

*

‘Blessed are the pure in heart

for they shall inherit the earth.’

*

For this reason

proponents of the prevailing view

are often regarded as savants or sages

as enlightened or wise ones.

*

It is to these people that we shall have recourse…
