To paraphrase William Blake, the road of excess leads to the palace to wisdom . . . or to the flophouse of regret. You won't know which till you get there.

Wisdom is a the highest rang spiritual discipline, it is the best answer to all questions, the best solution to all problems, it doesn’t need wealth and richness to exist. Without wisdom the universe, world and humans had never existed.

I need to fix the bell on that telephone!

It could have rung.

Some people get tired of listening to the 'ring, ring' of the telephone so the put a piece of tape on the bell.  You come home after a hard days work and ask your wife, 'Honey, did the phone rink today?'
She answers, 'That's a funny thing you should ask, it just 'rank' one time!'

The path of wisdom is the road between the mind and the heart thumbsup.gif

Most people do not want to know the truth they only want confirmation for what they think is truth.

Maybe you have to figure it out yourself.

There are many paths to wisdom. None are guaranteed to get you all the way there, but all are assured of magnificent (in)sights along the way. Getting wisdom is important, but it is more important to simply enjoy the  walk along the way.

Ps just as a literal path can only be safely and succesfully traversed by applying all elements of human sense, i suspect that the path to wisdom is most effectively and successfully traversed through the application of all forms of human sapience, rather than specialistion in just one or two forms.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world..

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

Yes.  The path within.  Ask within.

Answers are not out there.  Answers are inside of you.

The common man has common sense, the exceptional man has exceptional sense.

Devil Card of the Tarot.  The fool would not have known until he reached the destination if he did not meet the Devil along the path and ask him the questions he asked.

Ask within.  There is an allegory to reply to that, however it is often best discovered on one's own.  A process happens within the mind upon self discovery.  I advise to not be passive with information.  Objectify it, play with it and twist and turn it in dimensional space of the mind as if it were in the 4th dimension.  Information isn't passive or 2 dimensional, it is to be played with as a living form of the mind.

Mandlebrot set.  I agree.
