The Knowing and the Doing When we first undertake to live the spiritual life we are seekers after knowledge. We soak up the sacred books, the sayings of the wise and the words of our teacher. After awhile, we sense something is missing. We are bursting with knowledge but our lives have not changed. Then one morning, after have read the words many times, we wake up and something is different. We realize that all the knowledge of all the wise men through the ages means nothing without doing. On that morning of the soul we become doers instead of listeners. Then the doors of wisdom open to us and our life changes forever. This is the “awakening”.
