What is Wisdom?

TODAY’S TEACHING on WISDOM

– channelled by Krista Moore

The ability to discern is based on true judgement, perception, ability, law, truth and justice. These are not to be confused with God – they are infused with Godly knowledge and the experiences of life which create opportunities to become more wise. Important for me is the ability to subdue the “passions” or emotions in an effort to use better judgement, based on intuitive knowing of the past, present and likely future. To subdue the ego, in other words, in favour of the spirit. That is divine wisdom and law as well.

I have acted desperately and have been prone to anger and averse reactions. My emotions get the better of me all the time. My task is to notice them and to breathe through them until they pass, and then to go deep within and ask, or know, where the truth lies. That is how I answer most of these questions. Sometimes I look outside myself, to the internet or books or CDs, or other teachings. But all of these together, become filtered through my consciousness and my awareness, and when I ask with the intention to have good judgement and be wise, better judgement and wisdom results. That is the path to wisdom.

Those who recognize wisdom know that it is not a common thing. When someone seems to understand or know things that the average person does not – when they do not jump to pettiness or judgement of others but have an ability to discern a case from many perspectives and see the bigger picture – that is wisdom – and from this positive action. If we do not take a moment to seek wisdom, we cheat ourselves and are a victim of emotion. Emotions are good to feel but are not a good judge of reality. We should not take them literally. Truth is unreal in this world, and no emotion points to it other than serenity –which is not an emotion at all but a true state of being. While in the illusion, we need wise teachers to point to another reality, and these are the wise ones we seek: the “Gurus” or enlightened beings.

It reminds me too that not all wise ones verbally teach. Some simply offer their presence, their serenity, their frequency, and uplift the others. Knowingness is silent, and does not pretend to know certain things. (worldly things). It just knows above and beyond all things (I am now getting into enlightenment, or Buddhahood or Christhood).

A realized one does not necessarily speak. They may exist on another plane, or simply exist to uplift and provide a beacon to others who are seeking. Their very presence stirs something beyond this world. A shift in consciousness is possible in their presence. We are not to kiss their feet (so to speak) but rise to their level of consciousness – they are pointers, not the “thing”. Jesus taught this by pointing to the Father, the One, he did not seek others to worship him; they sought him. He pointed to another reality, and started by teaching how to treat others in this one. Through love we ascend to oneness. We cannot ascend until we love each other. It is not every man (or woman) for himself. Forgivenss is the key. He taught with everyday language and used everyday symbols and situations to make it (fairly) obvious to those he was teaching. He pointed the way. His presence was also life-changing.

So this is a testament to my climb, or effort to reach and teach Buddhahood/Christ-Consciousness, and my human tendencies to destroy and condem and annihilate myself and others who upset me in any way. This battle can be observed instead of given in to. That is why they have brought me back to kundalini yoga and meditation. I will become an incredible observer, and a better teacher. I will be a better listener, and so a better witnesser, teacher, friend.

I will learn compassion, even for myself. I am getting better.

It is important to note that there is no wisdom without love. Love is true wisdom. Devotion and discernment. It sees the worthiness in everyone, and judges no one. It is calm and secure in the wisdom that all will be (elected) to be wise one day. All are worthy in God’s eyes. So wisdom and compassion are connected. When we discern, we discern with love and compassion, and this is what makes us wise.

Therefore there is no wisdom without love, and no judgement is true without wisdom. Wisdom is wise, and wisdom is true, and truth is always loving.

Amen.
