Knowledge is the information within you that you don't have to think about. You just know.

Knowledge for me is the posession of information that can be gleaned from a book or another outside source. I would differentiate this from knowing which to me is a private awareness that comes from within and is not something I need to learn but is something that's always available when I take the time to go deep enough and listen to that voice within :)

Knowledge is the accumulation of memories (either yours or someone else's) of past experiences.
And as such, knowledge is always limited to the past.

well i do not agree that it is limited to the past.example: sometime you look at something new and try it for the first time and you know how to make it.

the journey of enlightenment, if we take some effort to pursue. we may find too what is it to be a being

beyond all transitory phenomena. He is one who has found the truth.

white tiger, there is so much information out there to peruse. what bits do you keep and which is thrown away; which is the truth or as close to the truth as we yet know. do you judge or teach, on what premise for either.

(08 Dec '11, 02:19) fred

i do not judge, i do not believe, i speak only of what i know,or has close has the words and knowledge know by men can come to grasp that understanding.

white tiger, have you ever had thoughts that seemed so real yet were millstones. have you ever had visions, of a common response to that of why we are here; and that it was broad enough to accept all that was there. am i information or truth

(09 Dec '11, 00:02) fred

fred,have you ever went over thoughs to the absolute truth. have you ever stand in the light of truth before i am that i am?"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. even if it is broad enuff to accept all it does not mean that one should not strive to enter the narrow gate. "Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.

I would divide knowledge into two categories. Conceptual knowledge which I have learned in itself is of little use unless I have proof of it through personal experience in my life. Secondly, true knowledge is when you know something, to know that you know,when you don't know something, to know you that you do not know. Most of what I have read is forgotten what I have experienced I am more sure of.
