Wisdom

Knowledge is what you know about some particular thing or another. Wisdom is what you know about all that is.

Facts and concepts exist in your mind. Wisdom exists in all that you are.

When faced with a decision, your thoughts will take you only so far. After reaching that point, let wisdom guide you.

Wisdom is what you know without the slightest bit of doubt or hesitation. When you act based on wisdom, you act with real confidence and true purpose.

Wisdom is more than merely the memory of a certain set of facts, conditions or circumstances. Wisdom is an awareness of what is, combined with a love of life, of light, of truth.

Wisdom is there for you to discover and nurture in each moment. Open your mind, your heart, and your spirit to the wisdom that can bring real and lasting value to your world.

— Ralph Marston
