Good friends. An interlude from the most interesting work of Dr Claire Weekes. I have been working hard and haven’t had the time to put a new post together yet. My thanks to those 10-20 of you who visit this site per month. Yes per month. I thought the content was engaging and/or interesting of sorts, but alas, I have bombed out and come up short in the blogging stakes.
I have, nevertheless, been enjoying this style of interaction and I hope that some of this mighty number of visitors will have gained something from my thoughts. As yet I have received 0 emails and no comments that were not spam or incoherent.
On the subject of wisdom, I have come to the conclusion that to be wise is to know that trust and honesty with God and another human being coupled with some selfless giving with him in mind keeps one sane!
There is of course practical wisdom or I suppose….common sense. And there are wordy arguments that prove 1 point but miss another. All wisdom in one sense or another I suppose?
But to paraphrase from the sagacious lips of Confucius, there are 3 ways to gain wisdom.
1. through reflection which is the noblest way.
2. through imitation which is the easiest way.
3. and through experience which is the bitterest way.
I was once working with a guy to whom I was trying to explain some proverbial biblical sayings. During my ‘lecture’ plus few examples eg ‘one cannot straighten what is crooked etc he piped up, ‘yes, buy one get one free’!
His retort stopped me in my tracks and was of course wise in its own way.
Hope your anxiety and panic disorder is manageable and diminishing. Seek the light and put yourselves in places where you can heal. This is wise in itself.
