    Don't Envy

     Sometimes we envy others. We look at people we know and just wish we had what they have, even though most of the times we see a surface only. I was like that too, I tended to envy others especially successful and wealthy people. This view changed and you will see what I...

    When Did We Stop Expecting Wisdom In Our Leaders?

    In early societies, the elders with wisdom would guide/rule their people. Now it seems who ever has the most money has the power to rule and those with the ethics and wisdom are pushed aside. It seems like it has been a long process of brainwashing people into thinking what is...

    Intelligence Vs Wisdom

    "Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to use it in a fruit salad" Now, my own observation. Intelligence may be taken, but wisdom is more demure and prefers to be chased.

    Found It!!!

    It was down between the cushions of "I know I know nothing" and "the greatest thing is just to love and be loved in return" on the couch of "follow your own bliss"...   a little too abstract...a little too wise...it is time to kiss the earth once again...

    Life Long Search

    The comic Steven Wright joked, "I have a large sea shell collection which I keep scattered on beaches all over the world. Maybe you've seen it." I think wisdom might be a lot like those shells, scattered all over the world. A little bit here, a little bit there...

    Wisdom, What Is This Thing We Call Wisdom?

    I have to admit that I don't think I would be able to tell the difference between a wise person and someone who has a hidden agenda right now. I do know that it would be nice to have someone who can guide me to the right path because I am stuck in the middle of the woods right...

    I Am So Different.

    Hello all, I have felt different than others since I was a toddler. To try to explain this to a reg human being feels useless. I learned how to fake it early on, how to hide and also appear to fit in, but have never felt true connection to others. I have been studying ancient...
