There Is No Darkness But Ignorance

Philosopher Meditating by Rembrandt
Posted a new article on MuddyColors.com
There Is No Darkness But Ignorance
"We all should be developing and acting upon the skills and insights that we're capable of. We should not be allowing ourselves or those around us to become unreflective and complacent with the ignorance that seems to be making a place for itself in our current surroundings."
