Gaining Wisdom


Wisdom eludes me. The more I learn, the less I think I know. Maybe it's because when I learn something new I realize how much more there is to know. And by that I mean, how much we can know, not how much we must know. It's perpetual. I strive to learn more, but sometimes I feel I don't know enough.

Wait a minute, wisdom isn't just knowledge! It isn't how many books you've read or how many degrees you have. Wisdom can't be learned just by reading, it must be gained as well. Wisdom collects, and is gained from experience and consideration. No matter how much you try, you won't become wise just learning stuff.

Wisdom is found in the application of knowledge, the awareness that comes from the analysis of our world and life, through learning and experiencing.

Think deeper. When you toss a stone into a pond you're immediately aware of the ripples and the splash, but it doesn't stop there. Even though your mind forgets the stone because it's gone from sight, the stone continues its journey to the bottom of the pond. We can think about the stuff we can't see.

When we're seeking knowledge we shouldn't skim the surface and ignore the lessons within the lessons. The deeper considerations are where wisdom hides. Things we learn on one subject may intersect with points of another subject, we need to examine those connections. Even if the connections are not obvious at first, once made, the proverbial light bulb goes on and we're one step closer.

Gain: Increasing the level by increasing the amplitude.

Depth. More than a little. Wisdom is gained. It's about what lies beyond the zero point in a wavelength. It's looking toward the outside, while looking in.
