A different kind of learning

People who are constantly seeking to understand new ideas, to expand their horizons, have a vitality about them that is unmistakable. If a person stops searching and learning, however, it's also obvious that there usually isn't much real living going on any longer. Human existence becomes fairly one-dimensional, colorless, almost without purpose. On the other hand, it doesn't seem to be enough simply to go about accumulating human knowledge, even vast stores of it.

There's another level to our education that has to do with satisfying a deeper need—the powerful yearning to understand who we actually are. And, for many, this essentially involves a search for God. There seems to be an innate sense in people which tells them that in finding God they will find themselves and thus come to comprehend what life really means.
