Ignorance

Ignorance

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ignorance is a lack of knowledge. The word ignorant is an adjective describing a person in the state of being unaware, and can be used to describe individuals who deliberately ignore or disregard important information or facts or individuals who are not aware of that important information or facts. Ignorance can come in three different types: factual ignorance (absence of knowledge of some fact), objectual ignorance (unacquaintance with some actual object), and technical ignorance (absence of knowledge of how to do something that could actually be done).

I am using consider in a very holistic sense see link below:

Psychologists tell us we have between 50,000-70,000 thoughts per day, this means between 35 and 48 thoughts per minute per person. The steady flow of thinking is a thick filter between our thoughts and feelings, our head and heart.

 

The universe gives you many opportunities to find out what you really are.

 

A thought is an opportunity to make a choice; with every deliberate choice you are tuning yourself to receive similar type thoughts. You are also building your belief system with every deliberate choice.

YES, NO, and WOW (Wonder of Wonders).

Mat 5:37  “But let your* word be, ‘Yes, Yes’ [or] ‘No, No,’ but the [word which is] more [than] these is from the evil [one].

What do these three have in common?

They are all complete sentences by themselves and they are the irreducible lowest form of all choices.

We start out in life opened up to everything; but what do we do, we make choices that start the process of limitation.

Mar 9:23  So Jesus said to him, “If you are able to believe [or, to have faith]-all [things are] possible to the one believing [or, having faith]!”

We start out with a mind opened up to all possibilities and then we start to close our mind. I choose to believe that at the level of consciousness all things, which are in your consciousness, are possible. A swan cannot become a duck. A non-musical person cannot be a concert musician.

 

Ignorance is choosing limitation.
