Ignorance Is Bliss

"Ignorance Is Bliss"

An age old adage which used to hold true in golden times.
But, in modern times, most people consider it to be worthless.
As a consequence, ignorance is ignored and craftiness is embraced...

I feel myself to be an exception even in today's world.
Right since my childhood days, "Indeed, ignorance is bliss, I thought to myself" .
It was my ignorance that I always aimed at my goals with full concentration rather than being deviated by people's negative opinions, which used to surround me.

I now realize that Ignorance Was Indeed Bliss as people used to do that owing to their jealousy and when they failed to incite me with their idiosyncrasies, they retaliated with their futile attempts to ape me.

I thank God that ignorance aided me to survive that phase in life as I was ignorant of all negativity around me and achieved all goals with the positivism of ignorance.

Hence, I always opine that one can and should always say to oneself - "Ignorance (of all negativity of this perishable world) Is Blissful Strength".

  4. I'm reminded of what a father said to his little son when they came across during their morning walk a woman's dead body dumped on the roadside (after the assault):

    Light is sorrow, my son,
    Darkness is solace... [from a Malayalam poem by Akkitham]

    Ignorance is bliss in some cases.
