1. Declarative knowledge is like the stuff you learn in school or read in books.
Declarative knowledge is factual information that you can state or declare. For example, knowing that the capital of the United States is Washington, D.C. is declarative knowledge.
2. Procedural knowledge is more like how-to knowledge, or knowing "how-to" do something step-by-step.
Procedural knowledge is like learning to ride a bike or tying your shoes. It's the knowledge you have about how to complete a task or process.
3. Tacit knowledge is the kind of knowledge that you might not even realize you have.
Tacit knowledge is based on your experiences and it's unspoken - you might not even be able to put it into words.
For example, you might know how to ride a bike without really being able to explain how you do it, because you've just done it so many times.
This kind of knowledge is often learned through observation and experience rather than being explicitly taught.
4. Knowledge has its rightful place as far as functioning in the world is concerned.
In the world of your daily activity knowledge is useful but where psychological knowledge is concerned it's divisive.
The knowledge you have about your wife and the knowledge your husband has about you.
The knowledge you have about your children and the knowledge your children have about you.
That knowledge is divisive.
Such knowledge prevents one from experiencing love.
You hold an image in your mind about another and the image is acquired through knowledge.
Whether you've been with them for 5 hours, 5 days, or 50 years you've already acquired knowledge about them.
So you've built an image about him, her, or them.
You're not in love with a man, woman, or child. You're in love with an image.
But I ask you, sir/madam, is that image in your mind your wife, your husband, your child or is it merely an image you've become attached to?
Real Knowledge is not something that can be gained through learning or external sources, but rather it is an inherent aspect of the mind.
Real knowledge can only come from having a direct experience of the Divine, which can be accessed through inner reflection.
We must let go of ego-based thinking and embrace a perspective of Love and Unity in order to access True Knowledge.
