GLIMPSE TO WISDOM

 

by: Josavere



THE SAGES, such as Jesus, Solomon, Krishna, Buddha, Mohammed, Laot-se and Socrates, left us many teachings that we must intelligently try to take advantage of to contribute to improving the quality of life, avoiding hasty decision-making, without reflection. later to reassess looking to improve.
 
Thus, as when water from a good source is poured into vessels of different shapes and sizes, each receives the amount it can; spiritual teachings reach each human being according to their ability to assimilate, the result of their level of evolution.
 
To do, it is necessary to BE. Life is the fruit of the decisions we make; it is convenient to live committed practicing good deeds, increasing patience, strengthening truth, honesty, exercising temperance and love; giving; dominating the EGO and developing noble sentiments towards our fellow men, remembering that every effect has a cause and this one an effect. Treating others as we like to be treated, without judging or condemning ourselves.
 
Look for those who know to learn, leaving aside arrogance and pride; cultivating humility. Strengthening the capacity for wonder, the door to knowledge, which is infinite and therefore makes it clear that no human being can know everything, which is why Holocracy work is imposed, each one contributing their potential thinking of the benefit of all mankind.
 
Prudence forces us to think and evaluate the risks before making decisions, complementing it with the pertinent reflections, examining our inner world to gradually acquire wisdom, a source of happiness and the socialization of knowledge.
 
Knowledge, to the extent that it is applied in practice, is a treasure and represents true wisdom. The intellectual has a lot of information; the sage treasures experiences of life as experiences to teach them. The spiritual path is not what some teacher said; we must look for it within ourselves, the endless source of wisdom; every human being has something wonderful inside.
 
The wise are balanced, kind and thoughtful; they recognize that they cannot know everything; even so, they are capable of making the right decisions and of inspiring, supporting and helping others with great empathy. They accept all kinds of situations because they live very calm and serene because of their knowledge to increase their emotional regularity even if they find opinions contrary to theirs.
 
They are very self-reflective and oriented to humbly explore different alternatives, always seeking the common good with self-control and ethics. They live happily concentrated on what they are doing and know how to avoid exhaustion and stress; have good eating habits; they are very careful about the consumption of substances that can create addictions; they take care of their surroundings and keep everything well organized; maintain good relationships and practice mindfulness, busy in the moment with beginners' minds, alternating with scheduled breaks; they accept what happens and do not cling to anything.
 
SELF-DISCOVERY is a very complex exercise seeking to generate an objective concept of oneself, away from self-justifications and half-truths. It is convenient to accept that some relatives and good friends, many times, know a lot about us. We must not allow ourselves to be labeled, being clear that we do not have to die as we were born because we can change. It arises when we learn to observe everything without identifying ourselves with anyone, experiencing being oneself.
 
For this, the key is SELF-EDUCATION that begins by questioning all the knowledge acquired and learning to see everything from different points of view, which is experienced with an open mind, readings, dialogues with strangers and traveling.
 
Eliminate COMFORT getting out of the routine, trying new activities, getting to know other places and people; food and drinks; addressing physical and mental fears, seeking to discover or invent something, learning languages, memorizing poems and songs; dancing, public speaking.
 
Learning to BE ALONE avoiding judgments, opinions and superfluous distractions, helps to meditate to exercise to dominate the conscience and the subconscious doing what you want.
 
Emmanuel Kant, the great German philosopher, teaches us that all human beings have a potential for development that is based on freedom, a faculty that we must jealously guard and that for no reason can we let ourselves be taken away from anyone. Individual responsibility consists of knowing oneself, to reach its maximum potential and act correctly, doing good for good, contributing to the benefit of humanity, through reason and responsible work that allows us to make the best use of the time, respecting the rest days to recover energy.

Kant invites us to coexist with humanity, without lies, deceit or violence towards the employer or towards others, considering us all as beings with individual potential. He great promoter of freedom, which he defines as when we act with the best intentions and slaves when we do it under the domination of our passions or those of others.
 
THE EGO is the biggest prison we have built at the point of “I am”: famous, rich, white, known and in general, all kinds of praise that is increasingly needed. People look for the ego because of the good or the bad that others tell them, which creates a need that feeds off each other, generating a false "I", without taking into account that the human being is indefinable and that he must live without attachments or commitments to be FREE which allows you to flow (being the master) and looking for the real "I" within you, as Jesus Christ taught us. Live in an eternal present; aware of all his acts; simple, natural, spontaneous so that complete joy appears, happiness as the fruit of wisdom.
 
"I want to be a citizen to be free and for others to be free." It is not a state without authority, but a government that protects people to become an actor to improve the world by respecting human rights, including all minority groups (Simón Bolívar).
 
"Freedom, Sancho, is one of the most precious gifts that the heavens gave men; the treasures that the earth holds nor the sea conceals cannot be equaled with it; for freedom, as well as for honor, one can and must risk life, and, on the contrary, captivity is the greatest evil that can come to men» (Miguel de Cervantes).
 
Freedom does not consist in doing what you want, but in doing what you should (Ramón de Campoamor).
 
External freedom will only be granted to us to the exact extent that we have been able, at a given moment, to develop our internal freedom (Mahatma Gandhi).
 
Freedom is an inseparable attribute of human dignity (Alfonso López Michelsen).
