Wisdom is not so much a creative quality as one of nurturing what is already there. Wisdom is making the very best of what you have, not stretching your hand for more than you require, nor taking too much. Never saying you will do something, just doing it; and not being enthusiastic. It is seeing the drabness of life and making it beautiful. It is recognizing that every gesture of giving is a right gesture and every gesture of taking is an invitation of influence. Because if you take what you most want, there may be mud stuck to it – heaviness. By giving, as you withdraw, you bring back lightness. It is a life of quiet victories and smiling defeats.

Wisdom is richness, not suspicion or reserve. The richness of experience folded inside you. Experience not only of the past but also of the future, gently knowing what is to come. It is like an income, the interest of which is used daily to live with ease, to avoid pitfalls, but the bulk of which remains saved inside, emerging unbidden when there’s a ‘crater’ in your life. Though there is richness, wisdom avoids shows, understands economy and knows that no-one needs your judgment, only your love for life, your warmth and perception. Wisdom simply sees the need and provides, fits in, but remains unique. Quietly.

Wisdom is knowledge of danger but no fear. It is the ability to spot a twist in the distance, a narrow stretch, the possibility of a collision; to stop and wait in peace until something has passed. No wisdom is keeping going, hoping all will be alright.

Many times with good intention of solving a problem, you become a part of the problem. In order to accept the problem it is more practical firstly to remain silent and serene. It is not always necessary to understand to causes but to find solutions. Observe and reflect in silence and then make a decision.

Criticisms are good things. They help us look at ourselves, to check and improve. There are situations where you feel that nothing you say or do seems right, where there is constant criticism. How do we satisfy people at that time? We must first be satisfied with ourselves before we can satisfy others. If we do not have the power to quickly change the negative attitude of others, we must atleast start with ourselves. Change our attitude towards the one who is constantly criticizing. Adopt more positive approach. Positive thoughts, words and actions will eventually bring positive results. Continue acting in this Godly manner. Atleast God will be pleased with you.
