They can only remind you ..help you remember what you've always known.

You can never know or experience your reality directly.

You can only imagine/interpret it conceptually via the meaning you give to it.

The world that appears and all it's knowledge is therefore illusory.

If you think something is stupid then that's what it will be - if you believe that's what it is then you are the one who is stupid.

I never let schooling (prison for the mind) get in the way of my education. Be free.

That is false.
Listening twice as much as you speak is a sign of wisdom.

You can experience the effects of piles,ie: pain and discomfort, but you can never experience the source of the pain or the awareness of that pain....the source of anything is Acausal, therefore it's effects must be too.

Therefore you cannot experience anything directly.

Most of what I learned in schools was totally unfamiliar to me.
Ludwik Kowalski, author of a free ON-LINE book entitled “Diary of a Former Communist: Thoughts, Feelings, Reality.”

a testimony based on a diary kept between 1946 and 2004 (in the USSR, Poland, France and the USA).

The more people know about proletarian dictatorship the less likely will they experience is. Please share the link with those who might be interested, especially with young people, and with potential reviewers. Thank you.
