Wisdom

Post by P on Sun Oct 12, 2014 2:26 pm

Wisdom is the root of philosophy, its a subject extensively considered by some of us:

Wisdom.

Wise,
Or not?

Truth,
Always,
(if a little selective at times!).

Compassionate,
to yourself as well as others.

Spontaneous,
How long does it take to see the light?

Giving,
To those who will listen.

Some people are born wise
And forget.
Some people will never learn.
Some people become wise.

I like your wording and writing... yet...

many who claim to be wise and have wisdom... are arrogant and full of self importance and their "wisdom" is useless.

I wonder why we (supposedly) get wise in our older years, we need it when young and reckless,and nobody listens to us anyway ! don\'t know

I certainly wouldnt argue with that at all. It seems to me that some are pre-disposed to inflict "their" wisdom on others regardless. I would far rather people figure it out for themselves, hence 42 (in other words, perhaps you should think about this a bit more!) which, you may have noticed, I get sick of writing.

The danger is that there may be the odd occaision when someone really wants to know, and is seeking some guidance or direction, rather than expecting an instant fix handed to them on a plate.

Perhaps there are different sorts of wisdom anyway. The type you allude to, which is a shallow thing used for impressing others and boosting ego, through to the real gold, which, if we are really unlucky, we may glimpse. Glimpsing and grasping are two very different things though!

Hi Roxanna,

Wisdom doesnt always come with age. I think it all depends on how life treats us, and if we are wise enough to take it on board, or live in a permanent state of denial. Its true that as we go through life we accumulate junk of all different sorts, and not all of it is physical (you should see my garage!).

I guess we need to reach a stage in life where we can pause, step back for a moment, and just listen to what is going on around us. The best advice in life often comes in a whisper.
