What is wisdom one might ask? The English dictionary defines wisdom as the quality or state of being wise; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action; sagacity, discernment, or insight.
When you look at humanity as a whole, how many of them in terms of percentage would you say is wise? You could say 10% or 20% of the world population is wise. I personally don’t think that the population of those that can truly be regarded as wise is above 10%.
The world is suffering from a shortage of wisdom. This lack of wisdom in the masses is why governments upon governments are certain that they can manipulate the population in any manner they seem fit. People have now become so dumb that they rely on other people to tell them what is wrong and right. It has now gotten to the point whereby people have to be told when to be offended and when it is not ok to be offended. Is that really a path we as humans want to continue on? It will only lead to our demise. We are getting smarter and dumber at an equivalent speed. This is a sad situation.
Seek Wisdom First
Wisdom is the principal thing. And why is wisdom the principal thing in the life of any man or woman? Why is it more important than any other thing? Because with wisdom, you can decide for yourself what is right and wrong. When you possess wisdom, whatever you decide is right, is right for you and your development. Because you see things from the inner eyes. Your conviction of the truth comes from a higher plane – a spiritual plane.
This wisdom is what makes an individual convinced that he or she is right on a particular subject or topic even if the whole world thinks otherwise. Because it discloses to you not just the truth but it also gives you the conviction that comes with it.
Wisdom is not your brain. It is not intelligent. It is not being smart or knowledgeable. Wisdom is a spiritual thing. It is given unto mankind for the attainment of a better and more fulfilled life. Wisdom is given from The Source. It is given to whoever seeks it genuinely. No man or woman that seeks wisdom from the Infinite Mind is ever left empty-handed.
Let’s look at the first two sentences of the scripture verse again.
Wisdom is the principal thing;
Therefore get wisdom.
The first statement made it clear that wisdom is the most important thing in the life of anyone and the second sentence instructs us to get this wisdom. Which made it clear, that, it is not something anyone is born with but rather it is something you have to get. This wisdom is not academic knowledge. Each year millions graduate from various universities around the world. More than 90% of this graduate cannot be regarded as wise but the same percentage can be regarded as academically educated, informed and knowledgeable.
So wisdom is not academic knowledge. Albert Einstein went to university where he acquired academic knowledge. He couldn’t do much with it. He became just another frustrated university graduate. But when he realised that there is a power greater than him that permits and penetrate all space. That this power is ever willing and ready to help mankind out with any difficulty, he tapped into it. This power opened up his eyes so that where he was “blind” to the truth of the mechanics of the Universe, he can now “see“. This invisible power enlightened his mind so much that he was able to come up with the Theory of General Relativity.
Only the wisdom given by the Infinite Mind can give you the ability to discern the truth. It will open your eyes to things that have been right in front of you but you were “blind” to them in your carnal eyes. Acquiring of divine wisdom can be called true enlightenment from within.
People struggle and suffer because of the absence of knowledge and wisdom. If everyone on earth work towards acquiring wisdom, they will get it. And if all get wisdom, all the problems in the world will end within a few months. Am sure of this. There will be no enemies to fight. Diseases will be prevented instead of being treated and where treatment is needed, the treatment and healing process will be so rapid, that it will defy logic. Because when you know how your body works both physically and spiritually, you will assist it in performing things that can only be regarded as miracles in our current time.
I have never seen one wise person who is suffering any illness. Not a single one. Neither have I ever come across any wise person who is living in poverty. This has never happened.
So it baffles me that humanity rejects something that is more important to their well-being than anything else.
You might be reading this and saying to yourself, “OK. I get it. Wisdom is the best. But how do I get it?“.
How to get wisdom
Like I said earlier in this article, wisdom is a spiritual thing given to mankind for the discernment of the truth – the truth about who we are, our environment, universe and life in general.
To acquire this divine wisdom, there are steps to follow. The steps are:
(1) Recognition: You must recognize that this is a Power/Spirit that permits and penetrates all space. This Power is Omnipotent and Omnipresence. You can show your recognition of this Power by simply looking up and saying “Infinite Mind, I recognize your presence in me and everything around me. I feel your presence in the plants, trees, animals and people around me“.
You don’t have to say it out. You can make this statement in your mind. There is absolutely no need to utter them. This simple statement will start in your mind a powerhouse that has been dormant. It’s like inserting the car key in the ignition, turning it to start it.
(2) Acceptance: Recognition of a power is not acceptance of that power. When Barack Obama was the President of the United States, a lot of people who were filled with prejudice recognized that he is the President of the United States but they always said: “He is not my president”. They simply refused to accept him, a black man, as the President of the United States.
So recognition of a power is not acceptance of that power. So for you to truly open your door for the Infinite Mind to penetrate your carnal mind and fill it with divine wisdom, you must accept the Power and its working in your mind. After the statement of recognition, you should repeat “Infinite Mind, I accept and open my mind to you workings, knowledge and wisdom. Let thy divine wisdom in, into my mind“. Again, you don’t have to say it out loud. You can say this statement in your mind. There is absolutely no need to utter it.
(3) Ask for wisdom that is specific to your need: This bit is really important. Have you ever heard of the quote, “I bargained with Life for a penny, And Life would pay no more“?
The Infinite Mind is Life. It pays everyone according to their labour and not a cent more. In the same manner, it gives wisdom to people according to their needs.
When Albeit Einstein got in touch with this divine wisdom, he wasn’t asking for better understanding of the mechanics of the human heart. That wasn’t his calling. The human heart and it complex mechanics was not what Einstein studied at university neither was he remotely interested in it, mechanics.
What concerned Einstein was physics. How the universe works. How forces operate. These were the things he wanted to understand and these were the things he was communicating in his own way to the Infinite Mind that he needs help with and in this area was the wisdom to discern and understand the truth granted unto Einstein. Obviously, with the acquisition of wisdom, Einstein could easily see how everything are related and connected but that’s a topic for another article.
So in your communication with the Infinite Mind, you must impress upon it the specific area which you need wisdom the most. No one will ever be given the wisdom pertaining to everything on this earth. When you are in communication with the Infinite Mind, you communicate as if you’re talking to someone but you will not be uttering an audible word. It’s all done in the mind.
Life is not supposed to be hard. Everything you have been told that some people are born to live in comfort while others suffer is lies. No one is born to suffer.
When you acquire knowledge, wisdom and understanding, then you will understand that you are the captain of your own ship. The master of your fate. You will also understand, that your ignorance is the only cause of your pain. This is why in Hosea 4:6, God said: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Ignorance is simply lack of knowledge in the same manner darkness is the absence of light. This ignorance has led many to their own destruction.
I know a lady who went on one date that turns out bad, instead of keeping quiet about the bad date, she posted everything about the date on Facebook. Obviously, she get’s the sympathy and attention she craved for, but in doing so, she has not only planted the seed for more miserable dates, she has asked other people to add fertilizer and water to her plant of “bad dates”.
If she is an awakened or enlightened individual, she would have known that whatever you focus on, expands and manifest more. And when you ask two or more people to join you in this habit, the manifestation gets stronger. This scripture put it as “where two or more are gathered”. In this short story of this lady, you can see how lack of knowledge and wisdom leads to unhappiness and misery.
Our ignorance has been presented to us as knowledge. For example, since charities have been set up all over the world to deal with cancer, do you know that the more money poured into tackling cancer, the more powerful the disease gets? I live in the UK and the number one charity organisation for cancer suffers is called Cancer Research. Do you know that since they were established, more people have died from cancer-related illnesses than before they came into business?
When the masses are constantly made aware of a deadly illness, they ignorantly turn their collective consciously on this illness, what usually happens is an expansion in size and potency of the illness.
There are people cut off from modern civilization who have never heard of cancer, not a single person has ever died from it among them but send in one white coat wearing scientist, let he or her tell them about this deadly illness. Give them 2 years after this “awareness message” and they too will start dying from this illness. Why is that? Because in their ignorance they feared the illness, they focused on it and it manifest and started killing them.
Every painful experience mankind is going through is simply due to lack of knowledge and wisdom. So it falls on you to acquire wisdom today. The steps to acquire this wisdom have been stated above. It is simple and it cost nothing.
