What Gives Wisdom?

What Gives Wisdom?

What gives wisdom?
When, where, how?
There is absolute no doubt about that theme.
You’re you, to learn and do,
Earning merits, points
Benefits, each jointed.

One day ignorant,
Not one thing making sense,
The next, on reading one lone sentence
And, you’ve been awakened,
Revelation an illumination, recognition;
Understanding an ‘aha’ of day’s appreciation.

Breadth of view
You never had or knew.
You’re changed forever in your head.
But if your character is ego-led
You may think, “This is it!”
But if the I’s been lessened
Then you know there’s more in store.

Still you’ve changed.
You’re on your way and that’s what matters.
That will stay.
Ongoing broadening.

Clear-sightedness,
Awareness of the chain and wholeness:
Constant integration of creation
From the micro- to the macro-. So,
Prepare
To be aware, at least,
And you’ll feel blessed
Already.

      I’m ashamed to say I never have looked at the comments on WordPress, yours being the start of 112 (apparently). I cannot find the words to thank you both. I’m even going to stealth e word awakened and use it. funny, I’ve never used it before. And by the way, if you view me as awakened, I can only answer – yes, probably, but only partly. More to come, I hope. I haven’t come to grips with death and dying yet.
