“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.” ~ Buddha.
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” ~ Lao Tzu.
Do Not Rush Yourself To Wisdom
Quite often people rush into things and actions, into arguments and beliefs. We all go through this, because this is living and experiencing life, because this is growing and in our flawed humanity it is also finding the right path. The ego tends to influence us so we feel good with our beliefs and we feel important; because the lifetime craving of the human being is to feel valuable, important in our own life–that is why we form relationships, we build friendships, we visit religions, we engage in conversations, etc. etc.
We want to belong, we want to feel loved and express our love however we think or however the ego says is right. This is healthy if we include our hearts in the process.
But most of the time, due to influence of the ego, we fall in the trap that says that wisdom is the same as experiencing life and the same as getting knowledge to fill our minds; therefore, we get excited by the new knowledge of a topic out there, or by all the years and things we have gone through, or by the incredible data we have of spiritual and scientific topics, and so on and so forth.
But we must understand that wisdom does not have anything to do with knowledge you can acquire in this life. Now, don’t get me wrong on this, the right knowledge is extremely important to expand your mind and help you think deeply.
Wisdom is a brilliant “knowing” which already flows through us, because when we are born we are all “divinely infused” with this brilliance in our very cellular composition, and as we grow up it is still in us.
But as grown ups we have to deal with society and beliefs, and ideas and what she said and what he said, what she wrote and what he wrote, and all our complex experiences; therefore, so many things to deal with make the mortal mind confused and overwhelmed, so this wisdom or brilliance gets buried deeper within us.
This is to understand that you shouldn’t pressure your mind to understand something, study it carefully, yes, keep getting knowledge, yes, but enjoy the ride and relax.
Life is patience, and that’s true wisdom.
