Read a lot, but with reflection and meditation (9-3)

To be blessed with a large store of knowledge, a mind that contemplates, a good understanding, and an intellect that delves beneath the surface for reasons and motives, these are all factors that contribute to giving one peace of mind.

A scholar usually has an open mind and is at peace.

A thinker from the west said:
“I keep a large file in the drawer of my desk, and on it is written, ‘Foolish things I have done.’ I write in it all of the follies and errors that I perpetrate during the course of a day, I do this to know my faults in order to rid myself of them.”
