The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind. ~ Kahlil Gibran ~
Confucius once said that there were three ways to learn wisdom: “First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
Gaining wisdom, the most prized of virtues across almost all cultures, is an exercise in life learning, careful analysis, and thoughtful action.
Our mind is fully connected to the pure intelligence, to Source, to our true nature of light and love, and when we are centered in our true nature we automatically know how to be with everything and interact with everything free from suffering. This full integration gives us the ability to be the observer in our lives while experiencing it at the same time.
Life delivers us a series of challenges in the form of small and large good fortune, as well as petty and great misfortune. In the struggle to learn how to respond to the resulting joy, pain, and confusion, we are repeatedly challenged to seek and to act from our true nature. Knowing your true nature does not answer all your questions, but instead makes them so much less important to ask.
