Solid. . .

Wisdom is something everyone wants to claim yet few truly embody and embrace.

Like faith, hope, and love, wisdom is a word that we causally and freely throw around, assuming we know what it means and how to achieve it. Yet if we are even slightly off in our calculations, like GPS coordinates that are ever so slightly misdirected, what begins as a small deviation from the way of wisdom will eventually lead us in an entirely new direction. We all long for a good life, one filled with wisdom, clarity and  understanding.

So where do we start? The best place to start with wisdom is to practice humility.

Humility is not thinking less of yourself but it is thinking about yourself less. This is a crucial distinction. It is entirely possible to retain an appropriate sense of self-worth and dignity, rejoicing in the fact that you are here, that you are able to even define a concept like wisdom. its an incredible gift  that we should each appreciate and grow from. We do so when we see our dignity, not as a source of pride, but a gift to be given away and the strength needed to love and serve others. As we learn to do this, day in and day out, we will discover what it means to be wise.

Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues. We come nearest to the source when we are great in humility. True humility is intelligent self respect which keeps us from thinking too highly or too meanly of ourselves. It makes us modest by reminding us how far we have come short of what we can be.

Peace and Love, Jim
