The A-Z of Life – Wisdom

What is wisdom?wisdom

How do we become wise?

When are we considered wise, at what age?

Is being clever and being wise one and the same?

 

They say, in general that wisdom comes with age.

But sometimes some very wise truths come from those of a very young age.

If we are knowledgeable about a certain subject, or if we can recall facts and figures at the drop of a hat, does that make us wise?

Or is wisdom, just about being able to see the right way to proceed in certain situations through life, and as in the Wisdom of Solomon, being able to make the right judgment?

I would not say I was wise about anything.

For sure, I can probably give good advice in certain matters, but do I apply that same good advice to my own situation? In general, I try, but fail!

In most regards, people see me as foolish, sometimes stupid and totally naïve in the ways of the world.

And, they are probably right.

I try to always see the best in other people, no matter what.

I don’t always see the best in me, and am always the first to put myself down.

But I try to always do the right thing as I walk through life – because by being true to myself I am not living a lie.

What are you searching for?

We’re all searching for something – success, wealth, love, fame, happiness, etc.

Some people spend their whole lives searching, but never find what it is they think they truly desire.

But do we all search for the same things?

Or, indeed can we change what we are searching for at different points in our lives?

Or is everything we search for just leading us to the same conclusion.

If we search for success, what is it we want from success?

Is it wealth, recognition, or something else?

If we search for knowledge, what is it we hope to gain by finding knowledge?

Is it success? If so, then this brings us to the same point above.

Is it that ultimately we are searching for happiness – in whatever form we, as individuals, see that happiness.

For some happiness comes in the form of huge bundles of dollar bills. For others it is knowing that other people recognise their talents. And some find happiness in learning.

For all of us, I believe, we search for love, because deep down, we believe that love will make us happy.

But do we need to go searching for happiness? Surely true happiness comes from being at one with ourselves? Comfortable in our own skins, so to speak.

If we are happy in our own minds, then we do not need to go out seeking happiness. What we find when we search for success, love, knowledge, etc, is surely just an extra cherry on top of our already happy, contented lives?

So what are you searching for?
