Spirituality and pursuit of knowledge

Do you think they go hand in hand?

Do you think it's possible to be honest with yourself without the need to honestly explore your environment?

hoping this makes sense....

Yes I think they do go hand in hand.

Knowledge is the meaning of life. We live to experience, from experiences we learn things. We turn that applied learning into wisdom. Through our wisdom of life experience we gain a deeper understanding of our spirituality. Understanding spiritually = more potential for wisdom in life experiences. The more we are able to understand and recognize, the easier and greater the potential for learning and gaining of wisdom. All wisdom is available to us through life experiences, and when we are able to recognize that wisdom, which is eternal through all things... then we are able to learn from all our mistakes, trials and tribulations at an amazing rate. The key is in acknowledging that all wisdom is available to us at all times, and that we only need to tap into it to use it fully. Wisdom will not stop bad things from happening, but it will certainly show us how to deal with it in the best manner possible.

So yes, I think spirituality and wisdom go hand-in-hand.
Oh, but you said pursuit of knowledge. Well yes, that too. That's why we are here, after all.... to experience material life and the constant pursuit of knowledge that comes with it.

The first cannot be truly had without the other. Good point!

Let

A = Spirituality
B = the pursuit of knowledge

A necessarily requires B.
B doesn't necessarily require A.

To have a grasp on the real stage (rather than some shoebox diorama), one must have a holistic view of the world for much goes hand in hand...
