Waking To Wisdom. . .

When it comes to acquiring wisdom, the truth is that while many of us may desire it there are probably few who know what it really is. Wisdom is not the same thing as knowledge.

Wisdom, especially spiritual wisdom, is not just about knowing what’s good for you, but applying that knowledge into your everyday life. When you do that, this is when you know that you are truly wise.

So how do you begin applying the spiritual gift of wisdom to your life? There are many ways, but the following seven should inspire you

Choose wisdom. If you want what’s best for your soul, it starts with making a decision to have it. Far too many people find themselves in debilitating situations simply because they have not chosen not to be there.

Trust your instincts. A person’s intuition is more than just a hunch. Instinct is a form of guidance. Therefore, this inner insight should never be taken lightly or ignored. Make it a point to pay special attention to the still, small voice inside you. It knows more than you think it does…about most things.

Set boundaries. Once you desire wisdom, the rules for how you live your life will change. You will start to wonder if it’s wise to eat junk food at 10 p.m. LOL! Guarding your soul (your feelings, your heart, your desires) is a path that leads to great spiritual wisdom.

Surround yourself with wisdom. Wise counsel, wise people, wise books – all of these things are avenues of wisdom. Birds of a feather flock together, right? Do you want to be an eagle or a dodo bird?

Learn from your mistakes. The first time might be an accident. The second time might be a mistake. But the third time? That’s a problem. Remember, being wise not only means that you have established information based on facts and truths, but you are now ready to apply them to your life. 

Learn from other people’s mistakes. Discernment prevents experience from being your teacher.You, personally, don’t have to go through everything to learn a great lesson from it. Watch and observe.

Choose it daily. One of the greatest pearls of spiritual wisdom that life can ever give you is that, for as long as you are living, you will never have all of the wisdom you need. What you learned yesterday was enough for yesterday. Keep yourself aware that every minute you will be open to the new things that life wants to teach you about your environment, yourself and others. As you evolve, so do the messages that you must add to keep the spiritual evolution going.

Wisdom doesn’t come overnight, but if you ask and expect it to come (as you need it), you will receive it. For as long as the holistic health of your soul remains a top priority in your life, spiritual wisdom will not be unattainable for you. Often we attempt to live our lives backwards. We try to have more things or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.

Peace and Love, Jim
