Reading instructions is a path to enlightenment. Possibly. When you read instructions you are letting go of ego and admitting you do not know.There is a wonderful feeling of liberation as you are guided by the instructions. There are instructions everywhere.  A bag of chips does not provide instructions but they do give you “dip ideas”.  A coffee can warns you that the edges are sharp and a jar of peanut butter informs you that the container may not be able to be recycled.  Maybe reading instructions is a sign of low self-esteem? You can’t figure it out on your own or you’re so insecure that you need someone else to tell you what to do. Instructions may be present to avoid litigation or for marketing purposes. Perhaps the motivation is purely  out of generosity or self-aggrandizement.  Dozens of people post videos concerning how to do all sorts of things and they don’t get paid. Maybe it’s human nature to tell others what or how to do something. What I enjoy (and maybe in a sarcastic/critical way) is seeing what and how something is explained. This is the product:  here’s how you use it and our suggestions. Good ideas. Everyone has them. In the cemetery, every grave marker should include, along with the usual name and dates of birth and death,  instructions.  One short sentence providing a little guidance to the reader either about how to view the deceased or how to live. Your choice to follow the instructions.
