The Word Wisdom#3

Just a Thought--
Often we hear the word "wisdom" used when we think we know something that is of value socially to the youth.  One might hear, "Work hard and study, be respectful and trustworthy and life becomes easier."  Something along those lines.  But let us not confuse Wisdom and Knowledge which is tradition.  There is social wisdom which is 'do as we teach' (generally) and wisdom which is a discovery of the self.  This form of wisdom is a form of fundamental change within oneself which is far reaching and everlasting.  You can't just read this and make a comparison, you have to already be living it, now as you read.  You must already observe and know which is which to respond.
