Walking with Wisdom

The wisdom to know when to speak

Loving communication implies prayerful surrender to the word of God speaking in ourselves and others.  Out of this respectful openness there emerges the wisdom to know when to speak and when to be silent.  When we do have to say something, we do so wisely and moderately, and to the appropriate person.  In persistently trying to see the other against the background of the Sacred, we preserve inner peace.

May 2006 (Vol. XIX, No. 5)

"Is there enough Silence for the Word to be heard? "

WISDOM is birthed in silence, rising up from the Mystery of the Unseen, a potential grace dwelling within us. At the same time, Wisdom greets us in our daily lives through nature, sacred spaces, the sages among us, a child at play, our creative work, our angels … and all that is holy. Wisdom is a seed planted by Love that buds and blooms in those whose hearts are receptive and vulnerable, in those whose minds are quieted in prayer listening for the Voice of Silence. Wonder, humility, beauty, peace are but a few of Wisdom's fruits.

Wishing you wisdom moments, dear friends!

Wisdom is a living stream, not an icon preserved in a museum

Wisdom is a living stream, not an icon preserved in a museum. Only when we find the spring of wisdom in our own life can it flow to future generations.
 

~ Thich Nhat Hahn

Cultivating our wisdom is one of our most important tasks

Cultivating our wisdom is one of our most important tasks. If we don't spend enough time alone listening to the counsel of our hearts, then we will never become wise. If we don't spend enough time in the presence of others who try to walk a path of heart, we will never become wise. If we do not cultivate, through prayer or meditation or spiritual practice, a stronger heart that can fly and endure, then we'll never become wise.

~ Marianne Williamson

This mysterious Unity and Integrity is Wisdom

There is in all visible things
an invisible fecundity,
a dimmed light,
a meek namelessness,
a hidden wholeness.
This mysterious Unity and Integrity
is Wisdom, Mother of all,
"Natura naturans."

~ Thomas Merton

Holy wisdom embraces and enables our knowledge

Holy wisdom embraces and enables our knowledge, judgment, insight, even as it draws us beyond them. We are given words when we have nothing to say. We are kept silent when we ache to run off at the mouth. We reach out when we would otherwise pull back, cut off, turn away. Our own wisdom is rooted in God's gift of wisdom to us. The soil it grows in is our daily lives, including our relationships with God, ourselves, and others. Only by trusting what little we know, by pushing the edges of our own wisdom, will wisdom grow.

~ Jean M. Blomquist in "Weavings" - July/August 1997

Wisdom is not found on a computer chip

Wisdom is not found on a computer chip. It pulses within our heart, in the flow of being, through the precision of stars keeping their courses. Wisdom is not the possession of any one person or group but is found when we realize our relationship to everything that is.
