This Week's Affirmation is: I learn because my passion is understanding.
Through this affirmation, one will gain greater lasting knowledge from a life of boundless lessons. Too often I see students learning as a means to an end. They hold on to pieces of information long enough to pass exams, yet can recall very little after the semester has ended.
Knowledge is a virtue, and in itself a reward. Understanding can make what we learn so much more meaningful, and enhance our vision of the world around us. The more fully we understand a topic, or the further we connect new concepts to additional knowledge, in turn the more pathways we form in our brain to recall those concepts.
This affirmation was inspired by a passage from a book I am currently studying. In the book Oil Painting Secrets From a Master, Linda Cateura advises, to read ". . . for understanding, which is alive and creative; not for acquiring information, which is static."
