Accepting -thing-x- as a truth as a way of learning.

This thing just came to my mind:
Would it be pretty clear that the best way of learning would be accepting everything you see as a truth, then eventually questioning it based on previous beliefs. I think you could see more points of view with this way, instead of questioning it all the way from start and not accepting it...

If by 'accepting as truth' you mean recognizing that the way you percieve reality to be more or less the basis for your subsequent thoughts and actions, I'd say it's the only trolley truly worth being on, so to speak. Being receptive towards experiences while remaining comtemplative and creative is what keeps you 'in this world', and given how beautiful the natural world is and how efficient and self-managing the manners of the natural world are, it's actually really easy to do. There's no need to struggle at ohmmmming your way into a trancedential or enlightened place when you just realize things are easiest and most interesting when taken in relation to your life. The more you know about your life and mind and the world around you, the richer the frame of references you have for learning more about yourself and the world around you. To my mind the trick is to acknowledge that you are never going to be able to know everything about everything, nor are all your facts all going to necessarily be straight. This way, you feel more inclined to keep observing and learning instead of insisting that you've got any First or Final Wisdom.

Don't worry, I'm wrong.

More than often, the package says nothing about the content...
