Archive for the ‘wisdom’ Category


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.
