My Self-discovery - Thought 2: Desire To Know

I can only know as much as I WANT to know.

I remember watching this movie with Jackie Chan and Jet Li, the Monkey King I think it was called. There's a young American boy who is tasked with returning the Monkey King's staff to him in order to free him. Anyway, along the journey, he meets Jackie Chan's character, a drunken monk. This kid reckons he knows Kung Fu because he used to watch alot of Kung Fu movies. So JC, after slapping him around abit, tells him that, his cup is full, and that he must empty it. So the boy literally empties his cup of water...But that's wasn't what JC meant. If you think you know alot already, you don't have any more room in your mind to accept or learn something new. And you end up not progressing at all, but just staying the same. Then you wonder why things don't work out for you.

So today, this is my thought. I must DESIRE to know something today that I don't already know. Then I will know it.
