The Unwanted Wisdom

Memories are not always about the past
Visions are not always about the future
Opinions are not always about the moment

These ideas keep us from seeing a bigger picture

The bigger picture isn’t always about the truth

These ideas keep us from discovering a truth

The truth isn’t always about reality

These ideas keep us from creating reality

Reality isn’t always about what we experience

These ideas keep us from choosing an experienced wisdom

Wisdom isn’t always about knowledge, fact, experience, truth, reality, choice or the bigger picture.

Wisdom is juvenile to the juvenile
Wisdom is ignorant to the ignorant
Wisdom is irrational to the irrational
Wisdom is arrogant to the arrogant
Wisdom is insanity to the insane
Wisdom is a blindfold to the blind and a muffle to the deaf

Many suggest they seek wisdom
when in whisper to themselves
they seek self approval instead
they seek outer approval instead
they seek confirmation of their sole perspective

Many suggest they wish to be wise
when in the truth of their heart
they seek power instead
they seek to control instead
they seek riches instead

Many suggest they are wise
when in the Book of Life it is known
they seek pride and godhood instead
they seek destruction of life instead
they seek theft of wisdom instead

So who can see wisdom?
Many who protest the way of the wise
mock the wise man beside them
as a fool
as a deviant
as a servant
as a wretch of the earth

So who can hear wisdom?
Many who walk the path to wisdom
listen only to the opinion of another human
as though they are lords
as though they are masters
as though they are chiefs
as though they are wise

So who can be wise?

Wisdom cannot be given by man
nor can it be purchased by want
nor can it be found by desire

Wisdom is not what we think it is
Our thinking is not what we believe it is
Our beliefs are not what we would have chosen
Our choices are not made by wisdom

Will it be understood
if I say that a wise man enjoys nothingness?
If I say that a wise woman enjoys thoughtlessness?

Will it be understood – spoken by me
That if you define a liberty
you have already placed chains upon yourself?

Proof isn’t always about fact
Determination isn’t always about direction
Dimension isn’t always about perception
Your will isn’t always about you

Will it be understood
if I say worship is a lie you project?
if I say worship is a secret you keep hidden?

Will it be understood – spoken by me
That if you define your faith
you have expressed your doubt?

Is it understood that the more I speak of what a thing is NOT
the more it is exposed?
And the more I speak of what a thing IS
the more I have hidden it?

What has the observer been witness to?
