True Wisdom

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” –Socrates

There is no better teacher than our own experiences and the acceptance that at the end we know nothing, like Socrates said. We find ourselves in our journey trying to figure out every little thing that occur to us, to solved every problem we encounter and try to control what happens in our life. It is a tough job if you ask me.

Yesterday I was watching EWTN and in speaking of G.K. Chesterton and his philosophy I realized that there is not much value in preventing anything in our life. If we live continously trying to prevent something we don’t even know for sure it will happen to us, we will cease to fully live our life. It is best to deal with things when they reach us. If we do anything in life let it be not because we want to prevent anything but because from deep inside we enjoy it. We can eat and exercise out of pure enjoyment, like anything in life all extremes are bad. When we do because we enjoy it we live, when we do because we are fearful we are dying.

In loving God and ourselves we find the way to live our life according to our design. It amazes me how simple our way of life can be if we are just in tune with our nature and yet many of us are not. By not being in tune we create confusion and it is hard to find our way. I have learned with much unnecessary grief that I will pay a high price for not listening to my intuition; it is there for a reason.

Now, one question I need an answer for is, how do we manage to deal with the internal fight between feelings and reason? I know well that we can’t let ourselves go by feelings alone, but at the same time it is so very necessary in our life. Without feelings our reasons turned to stone; cold and unlively. The problem is that when one is present the other one is blinded. Sometimes I even question if the reconciliation among the two will be possible in our earthly existence. It doesn’t seem fair to be deprived of such heavenly bliss.

Life is journey and I guess the more we travel the more we will know, and as we experience it as it comes, we will be able to learn how to get the most out of it.

True Wisdom,is not a step by step process of Learning,but more a understanding of the Journey one takes in life that teaches Us,all that is written,and is true to benefit you and others that cross your path.
True Wisdom is part of our Trials and Tribulations of our daily lives,and
People we come in contact,in any of the Medias that are out there for us
in this world to use.
True Wisdom,is Inpirational,as well it influences you to others that don’t
have the time or resources to grasp the True Wisdom,It’s Not Tangeble,
its not some-thing you can hold with your hands,its not something you
could buy an trade in a sence,,Now You could teach True Wisdom to others
so that they themselves could benefit too,
Without having to take the long run,or mistakes to achieve True Wisdom.
But the Individual should be Open to new experience to accept the True
Wisdom that You have aquired,with less stress and mistakes.
Great Post ,Mi Querida Clary Amiga del Alma!!!!

True wisdom is the realization of God’s presence in one’s live and his or her reactions to Whom He is. Since we all know Who God is for us, we can therefore be truly wise by:
1) Fearing God, for the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; and
2) Living the live, the one that pertains to God. Living the Godly way.
