Life Lessons learned
Simple living Wise thinking
Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.
– Soren Kierkegaard
I came across Soren’s quote the other day and instantly loved it. I gravitated to the wisdom it held.. simply beautiful!.
However, I immediately also noticed the ‘WISDOM’ it left out.
I get it, yes it’s easy to directly look back at our past to gain a clearer understanding of life and our future.
When we can piece together the previous chain of events and our trail of thoughts we can better predict the unfolding future.
From the deepest recesses of my being, ‘I Agreed!’, Hindsight provides us with a privileged vantage point, and so does organically flowing, intuitive WISDOM. This is a deep innate knowing generated by integration with the universal life force or if you like, God. Some have called this life force, the mind of Christ, Budha consciousness, the I AM, the Infinite Spirit…and many more. This wisdom also offers us a perspective of real clarity and understanding. The point is, it’s not ‘ONLY’ about looking backwards at historical events and
Simple Living Wise Thinking With an Organic Intuitive Flow
What is wisdom?
As a lover of ancient scriptures and universal laws, I see a piece missing from this beautiful quote. Many have debated over these lines and always focus on the accumulation of raw historical data achieved by looking back into the past but fail to value foresight gained by the organic wisdom of enlightenment. You see, one of my personal definitions for wisdom is.. foreknowledge, yes knowledge about the end result of intention, choices, actions, and repetitious
As a student of psychology I have gained much insight into human behavior from historical knowledge, this is just another way of saying, foreknowledge of psychological processes and therefore outcomes. As a student of spirituality and theology, I’ve attained knowledge of historical knowledge and spiritual principals, yet another way of saying, foreknowledge of spiritual laws therefore outcomes. I have also gained a relationship with the source of life, and this has connected me to a deep inner organic flow of peace, love, and understanding (I like to say Overstanding).
Simple Living Wise Thinking is Nothing New
There is much known about how certain outcomes are reached, books like the Bible, Bagvaghita, Gilgamesh epics, Tao Te Ching, Quran offer up enormous insight. In short, the ancients have been singing that song for millennia.
For over 20 years now, acquiring wisdom has been my priority. It simply takes a lot of the guesswork out of life – simple living wise thinking. Although, it still leaves life interesting with lots of trial and error. However, both historical and organic wisdom allows us to live more effortlessly in the present moment (fully living in the now), the true art of living forward.
Wisdom gives us a real insight into the predictability of end results.
