WINDS OF WISDOM
Where does wisdom come from? Is it experience? What about facing a new problem when past experience is of little value? What if all knowledge is around us, and all we have to do is listen? Not only outside of ourselves…but inside as well. Listening to the knowledge carried on the winds of the soul.
What unseen hidden reservoirs of knowledge await us…..
I’m reminded of the movie “AMISTAD”, where a slave is brought to stand before a tribunal that is judging his innocence or guilt. He stands in majesty and proclaims for all to hear, “I reach into the past and call upon my ancestors’ wisdom and strength to support me, and when I call them, ‘they must come’, for at this moment, I am the reason for their existence. If they do not come, their lives were lived in vain.
Are we alone? Or are there hosts that call out and whisper to us? Is it possible that who we are is who we were?
Is it possible for a problem to be created without an answer? Ponder that one! If that were the case, there would be no accountability. I could say, “I was set up to fail.”
What I find is that most people have questions regarding the linear world of form….the measurable world of content. How much, how fast, how high, how big? What about the world of ‘context’…the un-measurable world? What is Love? What is Pain all about? Where do I go from here?
To live ‘in the question’ is living in possibility. And only when one has a question will he ever hear the answer?
Listen…for only you will hear your answers. They come in silence…they are being spoken now, between the words – in the stillness before thought – in the quiet place of the soul.
