You may be smart, but you’re dumb for not knowing better
Geof sent out this tweet yesterday:
…”spiritual but not religious” is greatly akin to “intelligent but uneducated”.
This is very much true.
Intelligence and spirituality are our potential, what we are capable of. Education and religion are the mold in which we let them be formed. With the wrong education and religion, our intellect and spirituality will suffer – just as with the right fit, we will flourish.
And that takes effort and discipline – a will of self to make these things important and to seek out what it is we need. Without them … while we may remain spiritual and intelligent … we won’t having anything significant in both our understanding and contribution to the world except that which we ignorantly, haphazardly, though quite capably stumble upon.
Go to college. Go to church(es). Learn who you are, where and what you need to be.
