We do not like to acknowledge that we need greater wisdom, but when we look around us, the tears we see bear witness to what we do not know. If we could collect all the tears wept by all the people alive in the world today, how large a vessel would we need to contain them? Our tears bear witness to our suffering. We may believe that the more we suffer, the more we know, but what do we really learn from our misery? Do we learn enough to free ourselves from suffering?
