Of course it does. The more we learn, the better a life, especially for your family, not to mention all the materialism a person can handle. It’s what everyone wants…money for college, nice house, “boys with toys”, right? Of course? It is, a parents most riveting moment, to see their children succeed, past their own. How much is enough? How much knowledge does it take, to be satisfied? For the ungodly, worldiness and materialism, is one in the same.
Peace, can only be achieved with the minimum amount of materialistic toys. The more we have, the more we can’t afford to lose. So many, want so much, but have no clue on how to maintain themselves, when they have it. Slowly, they become what they own. That is not the way to live. It is no wonder, peace is extremely hard to achieve. The constant reach for knowledge, in what ever aspect, leads a person to want more. It’s natural, of course. It is natural, for the fact of, if we pay for the knowledge, regardless of debt accumulated.
I find that to be extremely redundant. If the guarantee, that the thousands and thousands of dollars, were not spent for the purpose of gaining the education promised, together with the effort needed to complete the degree, than what was the purpose of it all? Regardless of completion, the debt still must be paid, that is if their were student loans involved. Such a pity! Talk about suffering…the many ways to suffer in this world, and this is the way, that so many have suffered from. The emptiness of not being able to finish or contemplate something, that was never for them to begin with. Granted, we all need an education, but not all have the capacity for the education, to be professionals, in what ever field they choose to become a part of.
Then comes real life…the daily living of most of us, that involve more than we can handle outside of education. Some have chosen to start a life sooner than others, some have other priorities, and for some, are care-takers to their very parents. But remember, that school debt, needs to be paid, hence, being overwhelmed with so much, that you feel like crawling into a burrow. Aristocracy is completely overrated, and isn’t for everyone, even if people try to achieve it, it’s not for all to be a part of. To those in the upper-class, we look eccentric and that’s okay with me. I don’t intend, to fit in, or crave the attention, but what I do know is, the knowledge I achieve, is from my own doing, my own research, that will better suit me, in my life.
