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
