Wisdom







I like this affirmation about wisdom.
It doesn't rely solely on
the pattern recognition
arising from experience. . .

it doesn't equate wisdom
with pure knowledge,
valuable though knowledge can be.

Instead, it blends those ingredients
with inner knowingness --
intuition -- that we can only access
when we get still, go within,
and notice what our highest self,
our inner Wise Woman or Wise Man,
wants us to know
at a deep and powerful level. 

Have you ever noticed
that when you ignore your intuition,
you always end up regretting it?


At least that's true for me!

I absolutely know what you are talking about. Sometimes I call it my "Sixth Sense"- like I know what's going to happen and should follow that pull. Well written, Meri. Thank you!
