Education is the means by which we can grow in any area in our lives that we choose. We simply have to decide what we want to know about, and then get started by investigating that subject until we amass sufficient knowledge to be able to have a full understanding of it. This is getting educated and is much more than you'll ever get at school or college.
Why do I say that?
Well, schools and colleges teach you a lot of things that you will need to pass exams and get qualifications that prospective employers rely on to gauge your proficiency in certain subjects. What they don't teach you is how to use that knowledge! School and college curriculums are designed to get you so far, but they simply do not teach you the practical side of life that you need to know in order to really make a success of it.
Mystery is another word for ignorance and ignorance is overcome by understanding. Getting an understanding in the things that are important in life should be your goal once leaving your formal educational system and stepping out into the real world.
