Student: What is “wisdom?”
Teacher: Wisdom is experiential knowing – the deepest sense of knowing that exists.
Student: How do you get experiential knowing?
Teacher: Experiential knowing comes from taking massive action and remaining awake to the many miss-takes you make so you may continually learn what to do next. The more action you take, the quicker you are able to see matters simply and clearly. Coincidentally, this strategy sets you free of any debilitating fears that you may have of failing. That’s because you now see your failures as opportunities to learn something new.
Furthermore, there are other qualities that accompany wisdom, which include receptivity to intuitive thinking, flexibility when times are tough, and a heartfelt feeling of generosity, which has you want to render more and better quality service to the world. When you make an effort to act wisely, you always act rightly.
