When I was in my late twenties, I was a wife, a mother, and a young nurse. I longed to reach the age of 35.
For me, that magical age would mean I had arrived. At 35 years of age, I thought I would be a mature and wise woman. I never really considered what all that meant, I just wanted to be mature and wise.
Now, nearly 45 years later, I can't help but giggle at the young naïve woman I was then. OK, I am still a bit naïve, just a bit older. I am still waiting to be mature and wise. So, when does this maturity and WISDOM come?
I have been told I am wise by others . . . oh, that's scary! What if they find out I really don't know? What do they expect of me?
Wikipedia describes WISDOM as the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight.
This is what I have come to understand, we were born with WISDOM. Therefore, I say, "Toss that junk thinking, you have always possessed WISDOM."
Our WISDOM is a form of energy, it always was and always will be. Our WISDOM evolves, it's fluid, it ebbs and it flows, and it evolves with our life experiences. WISDOM like our bodies matures. We can even help develop our WISDOM by trying new things, reading a variety of subject matter, learning about other cultures, and even traveling to new places.
Our WISDOM contains all the answers to all of our questions.
WISDOM can be called by many names . . . Inner Knower, Wise Counselor, God, Higher Self, The Divine. It doesn't matter what name you call it. What matters is that you call upon it.
Our WISDOM holds the answers we seek, we only need to quiet ourselves and the everyday chatter in our heads; our shoulds, musts, and oughts, and listen. Listen to the divine WISDOM inside each of us.
How are you nurturing your WISDOM?
How do you connect with you WISDOM?
What question is waiting for your WISDOM to reply?
“You are life’s apprentice, compensated with wisdom and transcendence
upon your willingness to learn.”
