Learning 667

Read  regularly.  Reading  for  thirty  minutes  a  day  will  do wonders  for  you.  But  I  must  caution  you.  Do  not  read  just anything.  You  must  be  very  selective  about  what  you  put  into  the lush  garden  of  your  mind.  It  must  be  immensely  nourishing. Make  it  something  that  will  improve  both  you  and  the  quality  of your  life.

 I  would  never  tell  you  not  to read  as  many  books  as  you  can.  But  remember,  some  books  are meant  to  be  tasted,  some  books  are  meant  to  be  chewed  and, finally,  some  books  are  meant  to  be  swallowed  whole.  Which brings  me  to  another  point.

Thirty  minutes  a  day  will  make  a  delightful  difference  in  your life  because  you  will  quickly  start  to  see  the  vast  reserves  of knowledge  available  for  your  use.  Every  answer  to  every  problem you  have  ever  faced  is  in  print.  If  you  want  to  be  a  better  lawyer, father,  friend  or  lover,  there  are  books  out  there  that  will  rocket  you to  those  goals.  All  the  mistakes  you  will  ever  make  in  your  life  have already  been  made  by  those  that  have  walked  before  you.  Do  you really  think  that  the  challenges  you  are  facing  are  unique  to  you?

All  the  problems  anyone  has  ever,  and  will  ever  face  over  the course  of  their  lifetime  have  already  been  made. More  importantly,  the  answers  and  solutions  are  all  recorded  on the  pages  of  books.  Read  the  right  books.  Learn  how  those  who have  preceded  you  have  handled  the  challenges  you  are  currently facing.  Apply  their  strategies  for  success  and  you  will  be astonished  by  the  improvements  you  will  note  in  your  life.

It’s  not  what  you  will  get  out  of  the  books  that  is  so  enriching — it  is  what  the  books  will  get  out  of  you  that  will  ultimately change  your  life.  You  see, books  do  not  actually  teach  you anything new.

Really.  Books  simply  help  you  to  see  what  is  already  within your  self.  That’s  what  enlightenment  is  all  about.
