Wisdom and Instinct

30 11 2007

I do my daily share of blog reading first thing in the morning as I look for inspiration to begin my writing day. I’m usually fed by the minds of those I admire the most. One of my regular stops is on Paulo Coelho’s blog. I enjoy the writings and interviews he shares it in his various sites. Listening to the way he thinks in general is an awesome experience. It urges me to dig in deeper and to reflect on my day to day issues.

Today I heard him speak about Instinct and how that relates to wisdom. You might want to hear it for yourself. I commented on his blog but I wanted to expand a little bit more here.

Being wise is something that a lot of people might want to be at some point in their life, but it’s hard to know for sure if we have arrived. We are on a constant evolution mentally and spiritually and our level of understanding continues to change if we allow ourselves to continue with the learning process. Instinct to me is an internal propeller that moves us towards what we are supposed to do or be. We have the power to follow or reject it. Some people have paid a very high price for ignoring their instinct, to a certain extent it can also be a warning mechanism. That’s why I feel so strongly about the importance of being in tune with your heart, mind and soul. Ignoring part of what’s integral in our nature creates disbalances which are hard to live with on the long run.

Share with me what you think about this and what Paulo Coelho had to say on his interview. It’s always good to read what others think about the same topic.
