Understand Causes and Conditions

To understand.

What does it mean?

Two of its synonyms are “to comprehend” or “to grasp the idea of”. Furthermore, some say it might come from the addition of the words “under”, to be taken with the sense of “between” or “among”, and “to stand”, the whole being interpreted as “to stand in the midst of”. We use the verb “to understand” with the meaning of “to penetrate what we see, hear or experience in general”, and/or “to go beyond concepts in order to catch their essence”.

We seek clarity in our comprehension of our environment and of ourselves. Indeed, to see things as they are is to let go of ignorance, and to build wisdom; which, in turn, will prevent much wrongdoing from being done before it even takes shape.

That, fromĀ our prospective, is one positive result.
