Knowing yourself is the beginning of WISDOM.!!
Wisdom is how life shapes us. It is about the impacts that we have upon our soul while going through all kinds of pleasant and unpleasant experiences in our life.
Wisdom helps us to discriminate between right and wrong. It is an important ingredient of our subtle intellect.
Wisdom is not the same as knowledge. You may be very intellectual, knowing many facts, truths and principles, but if you don't apply this information in your life, then you are far away from being wise.
Wisdom is intentional reasoning combined with scientific knowledge.
Wisdom can be acquired only through experiences, but by itself, experience does not confer Wisdom.
Being open to new ways of thinking, essentially status quo, can be hallmark of wisdom and can help to cultivate it.
Wisdom - Right knowledge gained over the years applied in all actions.
Wisdom is becoming a centre of trans-disciplinary discourse. The concept of wisdom holds a special strength for specifying the content and form of the primary virtues and behaviours that individuals aspire to as they attempt to regulate their lives towards a "universal canon of a good life".
Characteristics derived from an analysis of culture, historical and philosophical accounts of wisdom.
• Wisdom addresses important and difficult questions and strategies about the conduct and meaning of life.
• Wisdom includes knowledge about the limits and their uncertainties
• Wisdom represents a truly superior level of knowledge of judgement and advice.
• Wisdom constitutes knowledge with extra-ordinary scope, depth, measure & balance.
• Wisdom involves a perfect synergy of mind and character, that is, an orchestration of knowledge and virtues.
• Wisdom represents knowledge used for good or well being of oneself and others.
• Wisdom, though difficult to achieve and specify, is easily recognised when manifested.
Balance is an important key component of wisdom. Wise people taking care that their own needs are met, strive for harmony among demands and goals. They seek to understand others motives rather than merely judging their behaviour.
In addition to a sense of understanding and respect for others, we can provide a fulfilling sense of purpose.
