Have you ever tried to recall where you learned something. Specifically a word. Words you know how to use in a sentence but couldn’t give someone the definition if they asked.
Do you really know what it means in that example? Or just how to use it. Knowing how to use something properly is knowing something, isn’t it? Or does true knowledge only come from an ability to teach or explain it.
Sometimes you just know things, and they need no explanation. I know that meditation makes me feel good. Sure, the science behind it is useful to learn about and know. From action, I know it helps me. I don’t need to be able to explain it.
Or do I? I’m not so sure. Maybe you can only be helpful, or an authority on something if you truly know it.
I tend to believe though that true knowledge comes from daily action, not what you can read about in a book. Not to discredit knowledge, I’m the first in line to read all about something. However, the action, is a much better way to learn.
