That people are unknowing does not mean that they are unknowing like cows or goats. Even ignorant people look for a pathway to reality. But, searching for it, they often misunderstand what they encounter. They pursue names and categories instead of going beyond that name to that which is real.
James's comment: Even "ignorant people" look for happiness and peace. No one wants to suffer but we make it so much harder on ourselves. Too often we get caught up in the concepts of Buddhism and the never ending philosophies of life instead of just flowing with mindfulness and the changes of life. I know that often I let my mind just chew away on questions and concepts that will never be answered as they are just "hungry, insatiable ghosts."
