What did you learn?

I have been reading a book named 'Living with Himalayan Masters' in which the author's guru asks him to think on this:

"What did you learn on your own?

Whatever you learnt is from your parents, then teachers, friends, books..everything handed over from somebody else.

Everything you learnt is a second-hand knowledge?

Did you discover anything on your own?

Did you add some knowledge by yourself?

Learning by experiencing is the only real knowledge.

You will be a master of that. You will not forget that."

I have been thinking over this. Now, you also do.
