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!
