The Bondage of Knowledge

In Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu says:

When people see some things as beautiful,
other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.

Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.

After contemplation, shunyayogi says:

Wherever there is knowledge,
already there is ignorance.
When people think they know,
they have given birth to what they do not.

When people take possession of knowledge
they have caused the great chasm
between the Knower and the Known.
Misery.
