Social Wisdom and Wisdom

Wisdom comes in two distinct forms; social/cultural and by intrinsic discovery. One is based on teaching, learning, obedience, belief and faith while the other on self-discovery. So which is most important and everlasting to humanity?

Social Wisdom
  1. To live with ethics, faith, respect, pride, goals, compassion, love etc.
  2. Don't make the same mistakes twice, have no regrets, be fearless, have morals, no one is like you, life is short etc.
  3. Education is power,  vote, Love is eternal, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
However, social wisdom, in its efforts to teach, learn and empower the human form, creates, unintentionally, a conditioned social structure in which that wisdom is born and limited. Structure is limitation.

Wisdom Discovered
  1. Discovery is the action of the curious and their reward is everlasting, compassionate wisdom for Life. 
  2. Discovery takes place as we/the mind move past our limitations, such as being allowed to leave your home or state for the first time. Something new awaits.
  3. In that discovery, a sense of relief happens, a lightness and joy as limitations are dissolved. Life's reward is its enthusiasm for continued discovery. Life is continuous. 
  4. Wisdom isn't taught or socialized, rather is acquired in the moment of observance or present. Be mindful.
