Of late, I have begun to question many belief systems. And one of them is the definition of loyalty. How far do we stretch to prove we are loyal ? And why do we need to prove loyalty ? Do we need to see reciprocity in loyalty ? Or is it a bit like unconditional love where you must be loyal but not look for loyalty as a return. Is this what people call owing allegiance to ?

Sometimes, when a relationship goes through stormy weather, out of pique and hurt, we cease to be loyal. We speak against people. Should we be like that ? Can we live with that ? Or is it better to just let them go and walk away ? Or, is loyalty standing still , come what may ?

Hmmm. An interesting introspection with a review of our past years . Where and when did we exercise our choice for and against loyalty and what we now need to learn.

We often use “knowledge” and “wisdom” as synonyms, taking it as natural. That people who have one have the other. But it does not quite work that way.

Acquiring knowledge helps you make a better living for yourself as medicine to a doctor’s profession. Of course, as they say, knowledge is never wasted. So, an open mind works like a sponge, imbibing knowledge from anything and anyone and tucking it away for use during a rainy day. You can literally become a multi tasker.

But it is not knowledge but the dawn of wisdom that enhances the quality of your life. You make a better life by being wise because the implications of having wisdom are many.

In wisdom, you become balanced. You know when to speak and when not to, when to act and when not to. In wisdom, your vision expands to incorporate others into your circle of warmth and caring. Also in wisdom, you become compassionate and kind and learn to accept what you cannot change.

You also shun the qualities you don’t want instead of shunning the people possessing those qualities. You become simple, straightforward and honest and learn the art AND science of living.

Then, you make a better life. And if this wisdom is complimented with knowledge, then life and living become merged into one wholesome individual.

Life of wisdom


We habitually create storms for ourselves. We will go where fools fear to tread as it were. Or even the fearless think twice before treading. And then, we get upset or feel hurt at the outcome.

With idealism, one has to be practical also. I should have the intelligence not to put my hand in the fire when I am aware that the fire burns. But I am not always so intelligent.

“No” is not a bad or offensive word if used correctly. It applies to us mainly. To refuse is a right. And saying “no” to you so as to abstain from foolish indulgences speaks of a cleverness we all need in order to live a life of wisdom.
