“All knowledge is learned ignorance” – Ramana

The knowledge accumulated by the mind, which is an endless archive, ‘is’ IGNORANCE. Of course, certain so-called ‘skills’ ‘are’ required to navigate the Grand Dream most believe is ‘reality’, however these are illusions orchestrated for and by the mind [false self] to perform these manoeuvres. The mind, being a construct of thought, in turn an emanation of the illusion of separation, cannot ‘find’ or ‘know’ Truth. The mind is ‘temporary’ while Truth is an experience ‘of’ the ONE SELF ‘by’ the ONE SELF Who ‘is’ Truth – Real KNOWING, which comes ‘spontaneously’ when required, and without effort.

This is why it is often said that this delusion called ‘me’ [the body-mind-identity] must ‘die’ [dissolve] in order for the Truth [SELF] to Know [remember] IT SELF. This does not mean physical death but death of the illusion of an individual identity.
