Throughout my life, it seems whatever I do, I'm always one step late in truly grasping it. During the time I'm doing something or am supposed to be doing it, I don't reach my potential. It's only AFTER I'm done with it that I truly understand the essence of what it is.
Whatever it is, I think that knowing something will cause us to do the right thing while believing in something will get us to truly do the thing right. At first, for all scenarios in my life, I KNOW what I'm supposed to do. But I don't really believe in it so I don't really care. Of course, this leads to poor results. It's only after I mature through time that I start to believe in concepts in those areas. Doing them now is much easier because believing brings things to life. Now it's needless for me to draw this parallelism to faith right? Thought so.
Anyway, what do I know? I'm just some runt rambling. Two years from now my views might even change again. But I think Socrates said it best: I know that I know nothing.
