ACCESSING YOUR WISDOM
“A wise person does first what others do last.”
When I discovered this quote I thought it was a brilliant insight. It supports the belief that a wise person lives best. For a wise person is one who chooses the best action to take right at the start and thereby lives most fruitfully.
Given this, the key to a great life lies not in all the many good intentions and goals we may have, but in gaining the wisdom to direct ourselves better. Wisdom streamlines life and keeps us from wasting time and energy going down wrong paths.
Wisdom is a great legacy left to us by many wise persons throughout the ages. But our most immediate source of wisdom resides deep within ourselves. And we can easily access it by learning to focus meditatively.
This doesn't mean that we have to practice meditation, although it helps. What is needed is to slow down our brain waves to 8 to 14 cycles per second, which happens when we sufficiently slow down thinking. This level of brain wave activity is THE ALPHA ZONE (one of four brain wave ranges we normally enter). In it we become alertly detached, and our objectivity, will, conscientiousness, intuition, and perceptual receptivity can increase. In it we can be more powerfully present and in control -- and live at our MASTER MIND LEVEL.
At this level our higher mental powers are more readily available and we may live better. Train yourself to enter and live more in this zone. Then you’ll often access your inherent wisdom -- and do first what you might otherwise do last ... or not do at all.
Goodness and joy to all, Joseph.
