Ignorance is bliss. The news. Trolls on social media. Opinions of relatives.

And, ignorance is poverty. Knowing who we are. What keeps the flame in us alive. What nudges our heart to take action.

One makes us insane. Another keeps us sane.
One induces fear of missing out. Another induces joy of missing out.
One is where the herd is. Another is where everyone is alone.

Awareness of what to ignore and what to be aware of is true freedom.
