“All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word, freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.”
~ Winston Churchill, British statesman, army officer, writer, Prime Minister of the UK
I hope all of you are doing well and not stressing too much about the upcoming holidays and what to do about them. My prayer is that you stay safe and enjoy them in a different and more creative way than usual. Allow them to be different!
I’ve been reflecting a lot about wisdom this week. As I channel messages and information I often hear “wisdom, information, and guidance”. So I’ve been sitting with what wisdom means to me. In fact I would add the single word “wisdom” to Winston Churchill’s quote. Like many people, I think of wisdom as a virtue. Where does it come from? Well, for many it comes when you’re centered in your heart space and your thoughts are quiet. When a question is asked the answer comes without thinking about or analyzing it. Wisdom is innate and available to anyone. Others consider wisdom as an ability to think and act using experience, knowledge, and insight. How about you?
Hmmm. More reflection to come. When I seek guidance and wisdom in my centered and quiet state I wonder how my own filters influence what I receive? Through my own practice I’ve learned that clarity comes as I surrender to God/Goddess/All That Is – Source. I’ve learned to trust and my thoughts quiet more easily. It’s taken practice though. Most of us strive to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be and there are many practices and tools that we use. Recently I read “8 Pieces of Wisdom That Can Change Your Life” from Lessons Taught by Life.
You might enjoy them as much as I did. Here they are:
- Words are powerful, use them wisely.
- People come and go, but the right ones stay.
- You are doing enough even if it doesn’t feel like it.
- Failure is when you don’t try.
- Random acts of kindness make everyone feel better.
- Live for today, not for tomorrow.
- Never look back, there is nothing for you.
- Overthinking kills happiness.
I felt these pieces of shared wisdom resonated. I hope you find them helpful too.
For me, the key to accessing wisdom has been when my thoughts are quiet and I’m open to receive/hear during my daily practice. Recently Sophia, an ancient one shared this message with me and asked that it be shared, “Through the darkness light will shine like a beacon showing the way home to fellow journeyers. You are safe. You are safe. Open your hearts and you will receive and feel the truth of who you are. You are more than you believe. Reach for the stars. Imagine more. Dream big. All is possible.”
Keep going. Persevere as you’ve been doing in spite of the chaos in the world. You are more than you believe. The American cartoonist Charles Schulz said, “A wise old owl sat on an oak. The more he saw the less he spoke. The less he spoke the more he heard. Why aren’t we like that wise old bird?” Hmmm. Where is your oak? Are you ready to listen/hear? Sending lots of love to each one of you.
