“Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.” — Buddha

While this advice from “the enlightened one” may be easier said than done, it’s safe to say that we have all embarked on our own journeys toward personal wisdom in one way or another. It’s more a matter of how far we’ve come, where we hope to be, and the obstacles currently remaining in the way.

Inner wisdom isn’t something that we can learn from a textbook, lecture or lesson. We simply (or not so simply) have to live it. The development of personal wisdom comes with the emergence of a meditative attitude, philosophic calmness, impartiality, and the desire to draw moral lessons from life experiences.

The throes of daily life often lead us astray from these characteristics that we need to focus on, leaving us out of touch with our true selves. But if we take the time to identify the moments that are inhibiting our intuition, we will discover that fulfilling and lasting inner wisdom we are searching for.

A key part of gaining personal wisdom is syncing your actions with your intuition. Whether you are fully aware of it in the moment or not, those “gut feelings” are your existing personal wisdom and they link your ability to feel and reason. There may be a social stigma against using those hunches due to a lack of scientific evidence proving their validity, but it just may the tool you need to find that sense of balance you’ve been missing.

Peace and Love, Jim
