How can we attain true wisdom?
Question from the Internet:
“Do you think the world is wise enough to prevent problems?”
We have the potential to become wise to solve our present problems and prevent new ones. But for that, we will have to change.
At this stage, we are not wise as we blindly follow our very limited and misguided, inherently egocentric and subjective consciousness and perception of reality.
By default, we are locked into ourselves. We are incapable of thinking or making calculations beyond self-benefit. Whatever we do is only to fulfil our 100% self-serving, self-justifying and individualistic “pleasure/pain” calculations.
True wisdom starts from the point when we become capable of making calculations and actions for the benefit of others and the whole Natural system beyond and outside of self-benefit and self-fulfilment.
True wisdom is not egocentric, subjective and individual but it is collective and mutual.
Only such a unique and unprecedented collective intellect can understand and adapt to Nature’s fully integrated and interdependent systems and laws.
