Daily Meditation for Tuesday:

The worst taint is ignorance. Destroy this one taint and become taintless. - Buddha
Indeed. Bliss perhaps. They tell us ignorance is bliss in order to pacify the masses. Ignorance of the law does not make breaking the law acceptable. Oh yes, what is a taint. It calls to mind a kind of surface paint or stain. A dark layer that coats the psyche. Ignorance is the stain put upon the bare wood of the soul. Time for some stripper. If I were a woodworker instead of a glassblower I am sure I would be able to continue the analogy without any trouble, as it is I am ignorant in the ways of wood.
That was funny.
Enlighten the mind. Read. Listen. Meditate. Pray. Seek. Act. There is no try. How to dispel ignorance? Think. Do. Who was it that said knowing that one does not know is really more important then knowing?
Keep up the good works.
