We are not wise, but can become the “disciples of the wise"
Question from the Internet:
“How do you define, find, and embody wisdom in your life?”
Human wisdom is the recognition that true wisdom doesn’t originate in us. Our brain is not a fountain of wisdom, it is simply a modem with a hard disk that can capture and store a limited amount of information.
True wisdom is found in Nature’s perfect, infinite database.
In order to attain Nature’s wisdom we need to connect, log in to this database so we can download the necessary information.
For this we need to adjust, fine-tune ourselves. It is not enough that we need to humbly accept, acknowledge that we are not wise ourselves but we can only become the “disciples of the wise” (of Nature), there is an added condition.
We can only access, download information from Nature’s perfect, infinite database if we use it for the sake or others, passing whatever we received on selflessly, altruistically.
This is the seemingly paradoxical law of the Natural Universe: we can endlessly, infinitely access, attain everything that exists, as long as we don’t want it for ourselves but only for the sake of others!
