The Scholar


The Scholar

The Scholar desires you to learn. You find yourself walking into a massive tree and enter a grand library, filled with books of every type, on all topics, from ancient times until present day. The Scholar greets you and asks you to sit with him and read anything you like. He is completing a map while skimming through written resources. He is focused on his task but welcomes you to share your thoughts – if you wish. He enjoys literature-based discussions. You hear whispers emanating from the books – sounds of delight, sounds of sorrow, sounds of darkness, sounds of folly, and so on. The Scholar indicates that the amount of information available is almost endless but it is up to us, as individuals, to explore and sort through the vast materials to achieve a deeper understanding and make informed decisions. There is much to learn, a lot to discover, a lot to ponder. How we go about it, is another matter, but the tales can give us the insight we need.

Keywords: Knowledge, enlightenment. Multiple perspectives, sorting information, thoughtful discussion.
