Knowledge can be useful as a tool and reference point, but there is so much more than just knowledge alone. All the masters knew there was more — in simplicity. People who seek after knowledge, only for the sake of knowledge, become trapped in a process where the means becomes the end. People like that become seekers for seeking's sake, and they seldom experience the joy of knowledge as a state of consciousness. Instead, they spend their lives trying to learn everything that exists beyond them, in the hope of finding the truth that already lies within.
