“You can’t judge a Book by its cover.” Or so the saying goes.
But if you think about this statement for a moment, isn’t it the job of a cover to announce to a potential reader what a particular Book is about in terms of theme and genre? Beyond simple convention, Books come with covers to both “protect” the interior pages while, at the same time, helping you to identify a given Book among a “sea of others” by virtue of a prominently displayed title and relevant cover art.
So, clearly a cover gives you some idea about what to expect with respect to an individual Book.
Of course, that’s only part of the story. Because until you “crack the cover” and actually read the Book, pouring through its pages and interacting with the content, you’ll never learn or gain anything from it. And you’ll never know for certain if the Book in your hand is a good one.
All of which points out the obvious… at best an unread Book presents you with the possibility of gaining some insight or discovering something new. And at worst it’s nothing more than an ornament or dust collector forgotten on some shelf.
The Book comes to remind you that the learning is in the doing. After all, truth can only come to light in the process of (self) discovery by consciously relating to a world of people, things and ideas.
“The unexamined life is not worth living.”
Some questions to guide your meditation:
- Do you like to research or “dig deeper” until you find out the truth?
- In which way(s) might you be keeping something secret, even from yourself?
- Is there a topic you would like to learn more about or some course of study you would like to pursue?
- Is there some insight or discovery that might be ready to emerge which you’ve been putting “on hold” or refusing to acknowledge?
