Finding Wisdom

wisdom you ever looked for "Wisdom"?  Since it is not a tangible thing that you can just go out and pick up at the grocery store, where would you go to find "Wisdom"? 


Whom do  you label and equate to the word "wise"?  What are their qualities?

Can one find "wisdom" in a particular place?  Where would you look?

I personally stopped watching television sitcoms many years ago when they took this turn:  In the sitcom there would be a certain scenario with say a family of some kind where adults and children, neighbors and friends would come in and out of the scenes.  With increasing frequency the parent or other adult would say something and the child would mouth off or say something that would negate the parent and put them in the light of foolishness and look completely helpless and dumb.  But, what are we teaching and modeling here to both the adult and the child.

Let”s take a look at the word wisdom and what it means.  wis·dom [ wízdəm1. good sense: the ability to make sensible decisions and judgments based on personal knowledge and experience, 2. wise decision: good sense shown in a way of thinking, judgment, or action. 3. accumulated learning: accumulated knowledge of life or of a sphere of activity that has been gained through experience. 4. opinion widely held: an opinion that almost everyone seems to share or express.  These definitions do not reflect what is being portrayed in a sitcom, do they? 

This is my point here; there is a natural progression to obtain "Wisdom".  Here is what my experience and observations have taught me.  Through considered studying and reading 1:1 with yourself over time results in accumulated "Knowledge".  When onecontinuess over time connections are made which then fire sparks of additional advancement, intuitiveness becomes heightened, andinsightss come forth which results in "Revelations".  When "Knowledge" becomes "Revelation" and is actively sewn into fertile ground "Wisdom" isbirthedd. 

If Knowledge and Revelation are kept inside of a person and not sown, Wisdom never sees the light of day.  Advancement in terms of forward movement of a person, and idea, a nation and so on will not happen.
