Knowledge is most useful in dealing with things. But it does not tell you how to deal with people and yourself, how to live a life.
We are not talking. of driving a car, or earning money. For this you need experience. But for being a light unto yourself material knowledge will not help you.
You need something much more intimate and deeper than mediate knowledge, to be your self in the true sense of the word. Your outer life is unimportant. You can become a night watchman and live happily.
It is what you are inward that matters. Your inner peace and joy you have to earn. It is much more difficult than earning money. No university can teach you to be yourself.
The only way to learn is by practice. Right away begin to be yourself. Discard all you are not and go ever deeper.
Just as a man digging a well discards what is not water, until he reaches the water-bearing strata, so must you discard what is not your own, till nothing is left which you can disown.
You will find that what is left is nothing which the mind can hook on to. You are not even a human being.
You just are — a point of awareness, co-extensive with time and space and beyond both, the ultimate cause, itself uncaused. If you ask me: ‘Who are you?’ My answer would be: ‘Nothing in particular. Yet, I am.’
