“Wisdom is equal measure experience plus reflection.” ~Aristotle
“In seeking wisdom, the first step is silence; the second, listening; the third, remembering; the fourth, practicing; the fifth, teaching others.” ~Solomon Ibn Gabirol
Philosophers, including the Stoics, are among the few to really ponder wisdom, which makes sense if you think about the true meaning of the word “philosophy”— love of wisdom.
A few seasons back we discussed the importance of having a philosophy. The value of wisdom is tightly integrated to your own personal philosophy.
Wisdom is unique in its timelessness. As a principle it is unchanging, unwavering. Think of the Golden Rule: Treat others as you want to be treated. It was true thousands of years ago and it’s true today. Think of patience and kindness. They are always going to be representative of maturity and character.
Knowledge, on the other hand, is ever-changing. We learned there were nine planets in our solar system, but then Pluto got demoted. Knowledge shifts, and it’s less important to our personal philosophy when making our way through life.
Wisdom helps us navigate life, making it invaluable.
Listen in for more on tuning into true wisdom to create guideposts in our lives, and how to phase out the “knowledge noise” fighting for space in our consciousness.
