Almost everybody suffers from ignorance. False beliefs are the manifestations of ignorance, and they result in restlessness and disharmony. However, if desirous, you can get rid of ignorance and attain peace within yourself and the universe. The process of liberating yourself from ignorance involves 2 steps – analyzing and taking action.
The first task for liberating yourself from ignorance is to analyze your behavior that portrays the presence of ignorance. Ignorant people talk too much, show rigidity in their beliefs, tend to be jealous of success of other people and have superiority complex. They condemn quickly but forgive slowly. They are always conscious of their status and reputation in the society. They are slaves to their own thoughts as they lack perspective and refuse to question their own ideas.
The second step for liberating yourself from ignorance is to take appropriate action. Some of the important steps to conquer ignorance are – reducing ego, learning about the spirit dwelling inside yourself and practising meditation. Showing compassion toward others helps reduce ego. Meditation checks negative thoughts through control of breathing. Though an arduous journey, unrelenting persistence promises liberation from misery and illumination of the path of wisdom.
