To learn is to understand...



And to understand is to be able to see into. Also into oneself. Learning as understanding presents us, time and time again, with the tasks of looking acutely into what we encounter in every life situation, to see it exactly for what it is and to distinguish between what is important and what is not; to recognise the connections between happenings in our life.

Perhaps through this, we can recognise some of the natural laws of the life-processes in which we are involved. After all, we would like to understand not only ourselves, but also to learn to understand others. This requires the ability to catch the moment, as objectively as possible and to process our observations.

To learn is to understand… but how do we learn to understand?
