The Pursuit Of Wisdom

The Pursuit Of Wisdom

“A book is a gift you can open again and again.” Garrison Keillor

I have spent my whole life in search of knowledge. As the pursuit of wisdom, philosophy raises questions about almost everything except what it means to question in the first place.

So what is wisdom? Wisdom is defined as knowledge, understanding, experience, and being able to find solutions to problems.

Does everyone have it? Anyone can have wisdom; it’s just a matter of applying the knowledge you already possess to the greater good of those around you.

My pursuit of wisdom is infinite. As long as I am breathing, I will continue to seek it. I am very selective in the books that I read, the places I hang out, the people I engage in deep conversation with, and the people I share my time with. Everything that I do is part of my search for more knowledge; a deeper appreciation of life; a deeper understanding of my surrounding; and of course, learning more about the people around me.

I hope people do not confuse wisdom with religion. A lot of folks believe that we can only gained wisdom by reading the bible or sometimes they view the bible as the sole source of wisdom. I would like to dispute that fact. I just feel like the bible itself was written by a man; and yes it lays out a perfect plan for those who believe in the lord, yet I know that there are a lot of great self help books out there that have benefitted a lot of people.

I urge you to seek knowledge and a better understanding of everything around. It will surely help you in the long run. I’d love to write more about this but I wouldn’t want to bore some of you who only care about my sexual entries. Feel free to drop your feedback if your thinking cap is on…LOL

    I would have to agree with you. One thing I want to point out is that people must be careful about what they read when they are seeking wisdom. If one seeks wisdom in the wrong places they can in turn become confused. I also agree with you that the Bible is not the only source for wisdom we can gain wisdom from our elders and various other places. I most enjoy gaining wisdom from my elders. Hearing them explain their past experiences and how they overcome obstacles they have faced during their life is amazing to me.

    I encourage you to continue to write on philosophical inquires and issues.

    I agree with Love. But I must say that the bible carries the truest form of Wisdom. the ultimate wisdom.

    I agree Jamie. If anyone ever wanted to know the truest form of Wisdom go to the book of Proverbs in the Bible.

    “Does everyone have it? Anyone can have wisdom; it’s just a matter of applying the knowledge you already possess to the greater good of those around you.”

    Nah, nah, nah man…EVERYONE DOES NOT HAVE WISDOM…hell nah! check out the definition you provided…without knowledge or experience, you lack wisdom :) THUS wisdom as you describe is an after effect…now we would have to expound on whose knowledge, whose experience, the meaning/definition of each etc…

    As we are all ignorant of some things, we therefore lack wisdom in a lot of things…why we ought to seek others’ advice to help us define our own experiences…
    hmmmm to be clearer…unless I burn my own fingers I would never have the TRUE knowledge/understanding of “a burned finger”. I may see or hear about others’ experience but do I truly KNOW it for myself? I would say NO. This is why a lot of us always assume that things will be different for us, can’t be as bad as we read or hear…etc…and we keep on repeating our parents’ mistakes etc…because you see as humans we like to KNOW for ourselves, making us unwise for years to come…

    now if the definition includes to HEED to others’ wisdom they heck yeah! we all can attain a lot of wisdom withough leaving our house…but do we ever? Most times we all assume or believe ourselves to be THE exception to the rules. We all see ourselves as trailblazers lol

    hmmm…I laiki, laiki..still you have to live, you have to feel to truly know for yourselves…reading the description of a journey to India is totally different from being in India, feeling your feet on that soil, seeing the river and touching it, the stench…etc…a picture may say a lot and a story may embroider others’ perceptions but to have your very own set of experiences…PRICELESS…KNOWN “wisdom”

    One thing to pursue wisdom and another to apply wisdom..some just love the pursuit..the journey but not the lessons in a lot of things I guess! That is what differentiate a man from a boy a woman from a girl, the application of lessons learned…
