"...we need to abandon the idea that wisdom is knowing everything—the whys, the wherefores, the how-tos. Wisdom is often more subtle, both far simpler and exceedingly more complex. For wisdom requires the discerning, the listening to, the acknowledgement of nudges and notions, of senses and sensations, of the minute and what we often mistakenly assume is the mundane.Wisdom means listening to the still, small voice, the whisper that can be easily lost in the whirlwind of busyness, expectations, and conventions of the world....”
-- Jean M.Blomquist
“Nine-tenths of wisdom is appreciation. Go find somebody’s hand and squeeze it, while there’s time.”
-- Dale Dauten
“To finish the moment, to find the journey’s end in every step of the road, to live the greatest number of good hours, is wisdom.”
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Excerpts from Higher Awareness (see link in right bar)
Feather: Even after years of knowing where to find my internal wisdom, I still sometimes find it difficult to hear that small voice. And yet, I know it is always there, waiting patiently. There is also the need to trust your inner small voice. Sometimes its message is not what you want to hear. It is comforting to know that while I may disregard the inner wisdom, it never turns away in disgust. It will always be there when I'm ready to listen.
