“Wisdom is having gained knowledge, experience, and intuitive understanding, along with a capacity to apply these well. It is the judicious application of knowledge.” (Wiki)
Wisdom is one of those words that gets thrown around a lot, particularly by people who really aren’t so wise. In all circumstance, it’s still possible to make a movie focused on providing viewers with a certain understanding of what wisdom is all about, without being overtly unwise… and this video is actually the trailer to such movie. I’ve found it rather captivating, so hopefully you’ll feel the same.
While watching this, I kept thinking what I would answer if someone asked me that question… “What is Wisdom really all about?”. I think I’d have to say that wisdom is all about not pretending to know for sure what wisdom is, but all the while having courage to believe in our own inner wisdom. All in all, I think wisdom is not unlike balance. Does that make any sense to you? If someone can come up with a better definition, I hope you’ll share with the rest of us via comments.
