Quote of the Day – October 5 2012

““It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.”
― Chuck Palahniuk”

 

It seems part of existence. If we’re fortunate we learn from our pain and from the lessons and road blocks we put in our path. Of course we put the easy kind gentle stuff in our path as well. According to Don Juan Matus as described by Carlos Castaneda, a warrior sees neither blessings nor curse but sees everything as a challenge. Perhaps warriors learn from it all. After all, our happiness brings lessons and challenges as well, It gives us perspective, endurance and perhaps makes the painful parts that much easier…
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – November 2 2011

When nothing is for sure we remain alert, perennially on our toes. It is more exciting not to know which bush the rabbit 

is hiding behind than to behave as though we knew everything.”

I’ve been thinking about wisdom and how to define it. Self-knowledge seems to be a large component of wisdom. The more I know myself, the more I understand the universe. Do I become wiser as I understand the universe better? As I add to my experiences, I can better help others when they ask for advice or knowledge. Tho I find that if I truly need to know something, all I really need to do is look within and ask and usually I get an answer if I remain patient.. But still, it seems that wisdom has to mean more than just experience. I have met many who have had all varieties of experience whom I would not call wise. Likewise I have met many, who have had relatively sheltered lives yet within them seems to lie the wisdom of the universe. It seems to include understanding, patience so many things. Perhaps I many never be wise. That would be ok, I have the wisdom of others who have touched my life and that gives me (and others thru me?) both comfort and new avenues to explore. I may never be able to point to myself or have others point to me and say “He is wise”  but that’s ok, I still have much ignorance to dispel
