Wisdom | It Requires Discernment and Experience

minute/s remaining

I have been working on my theme for the new year. Yes, I know. I’m a bit late with it. I do have really good excuses but they’re still just that…excuses!

My meditation and study time this morning produced an interesting and valuable bit of insight while pondering for an appropriate theme. I would say it was actually bigger than a bit.

This insight came from one of the many tools that I use. These same tools have been used for eons. Some might say they are the product of “ancient wisdom.”

So, how does one become wise? It might help to have the definition of wisdom.

  • accumulated philosophic or scientific learning; knowledge
  • ability to discern inner qualities and relationships; insight
  • good sense; judgment

Knowledge, insight and judgment. Wisdom is not just skin deep. It requires discernment and experience.

I’ll share with you a few of the tools I have used to tap into ancient wisdom.

I Appreciate Homeopathy

This healing practice used widely in alternative medicine has helped me address health issues that required an “outside the box” approach. Actually, 200 years ago homeopathy was considered modern medicine.

So much for ancient wisdom!

The Tarot Deck has been modernized into what we know as playing cards.

I Appreciate Tarot

I use the tarot cards to gain insight into some question that I’m pondering. They’re known to be used for fortune telling but that doesn’t really describe how I use them.

The tarot has been used for hundreds of years. I’m sure that in the hands of their stewards they have been used to ponder countless questions. And, this morning I added my own.

This tool is actually the predecessor of the modern playing cards. At some point, the trump cards were eliminated. Sad since these cards tend to provide the most valuable information.

So much for ancient wisdom.

I Appreciate Astrology

My Dad introduced me to astrology when I was a teenager. It was really a lesson from the book “Your Thoughts Create Your Reality.” Long story.

Over the years, astrology has helped me develop self-awareness and provided me with valuable insight into others. In fact, I authored a book in my Spiritual Approach Series™ called “Astrology: A Spiritual Approach to Mind Management.”

As you might imagine, I really appreciate astrology and the ancient wisdom that it embodies.

It’s interesting that we have found the need to modernize just about everything. Now, there are certainly cases where it’s challenging to find any downside to modernization. I’m thinking about my Lexus vs. the Model T. Still, we must be careful not to discard ancient wisdom in the process.

Appreciation is a powerful tool that helps us create more of what we say we want in our lives. You can practice Aware Appreciation along with me. It’s one of the exercises we use in the MOLT Method™ Program. Please join me!
