Wisdom Matters

Knowledge without wisdom is adequate for the powerful, but wisdom is essential to the survival of the subordinate.

—Patricia Hill Collins

Human beings=People=Multi-faceted, three dimensional, gifted, skilled, thinking, feeling, breathing, curious, complicated homo sapiens who are capable of evolving ourselves—made of up water, blood, bone, muscle, heart, brain, energy, consciousness, cartilage, mitochondria; the life experiences that shaped us yet didn’t define us; the beliefs we question and discard; the emotions we feel; the lives we create and live; the courage we cultivate; the compassion we deepen; the love we are, the love we share generously with people, pets, the world, with life itself.

May there be a day when we see, acknowledge, hear, and value ourselves and one another as whole human beings. May there be a time when inner violence ceases and outer peace flourishes. May we hold these truths to be self-evident that all people are created equal in their worth, endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

  1. Laura, love this message!
    The power of the display…we are all part of the collective Universe with souls that are part of it all. The Universe makes no mistakes and we are humans “being” introduced to ourselves from the very beginning. We are pure in the heart and we learn that we are not what others say who we are bur who we believe we are. Once we get that we are individually in like on one level …that great worth and value, we just might see some change. Your voice makes a difference dear sister. I love the words you display that helps get the message across. My dream is your dream and that worth is everything
    We are all humans worth being.

    Thank you for this my precious lady
    Tha words you share help add to that care, that we all search for and need to find.
    Love you my special friend ❤️😀🙏

    • Oh, Paula-Thank You for all this beautiful outpouring of reflections, insights, wisdom. Yes! and this too!! “My dream is your dream and that worth is everything.” Most definitely! With each one of us speaking these possibilities and living them as embodied expressions -we become a part of the individual/collective evolution, transformation. I love you, my friend! Incredibly grateful for all the meaningful contribution you’ve shared-for who you ARE and all the love and support!

  2. Laura: Very interesting piece, almost poetic. It’s very easy (too easy?) to forget that whatever we do we’re human beings, and also being human. Self-forgiveness may be the toughest task we ever set for ourselves.

    Thanks for the opportunity to read this, keep up the good work!

    • Thank you so much for your reflections, Byron! Yes. Self-forgiveness is a very important task-a practice for a lifetime-to remember we are imperfect-that we make mistakes-and that we can course correct, too-thank goodness-we can learn from mistakes and become wiser people-make different and healthier choices next time. And Yes! Go Bucks!!
