Flexibility

Be flexible in your outlook on life. Be prepared to accept that the human mind is incapable of comprehending the full dimensions of truth. Truth in one set of circumstances may be different when considered from another level. Be prepared to accept that a so-called mystery may have either a simple explanation, or one quite beyond our understanding.

Mental study in books does not lead to wisdom. It always needs to be chastened by experience. In fact too much study strengthens the intellect, giving it a dominant position leading to imbalance. Wisdom arises in a harmonius blend of all parts of being.

Intuitive grasp, opening one’s mind to inspiration and creative play with ideas have always been hallmarks of genius. Yet these qualities cannot be manipulated by man’s intellect.

  1. Well said!! Flexibility is the fuel to guide us through life, maneuvering challenges, differing perspective and unexpected experiences. It is a ‘free ticket’ to ride, if you will, and allows us to be open to creative interpretation and varying perspective. What we gain from practical experience and real world application, balances book smarts and develops wisdom. It is the perfected balance between knowledge and wisdom that defines creative and successful thought.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous :)
