This weeks blog on KNOWLEDGE vs. WISDOM is a sequel to last weeks warning about waisting time trying to explain the unexplainable. Rather we should use what it inspires in us as a form of spiritual practice
We live in a world overloaded with information. These words from the Ancestors can help give us a reality check
We only have to look at our politicians, the media and others from whom we should hope to glean truth at the highest level, to realize how elusive it has become and how easily it can be manipulated
More important is, what is our own truth, who are we meant to be, in which ways are we being enticed, misled or distracted from our crucial, individual, destiny truth? The Ancestors also stress;
"Your destiny is the hunt of your life, keep to the scent, stay on the spoor."
There were two trees in the Garden of Eden; the Tree of Knowledge which got us kicked out, and the Tree of Life, the search for which can help us regain Eden.
The search for the higher Self is at the core of all human motivation whether we are conscious of it or not. Finding out our mission on this planet is a crucial part of this. At the end of the day, it is wisdom that is necessary, rather than an exclusive search for knowledge, information and data.
As Einstein said; "Not everything that counts can be counted and not everything that can be counted counts."
Jung is in accord with the Ancestors
