Wisdom, Beauty and Truth.
In the process that I am going through both in the education of my children and myself, I constantly hear about focusing on Wisdom, Beauty and Truth.
It really is not what we traditionally think of these things, yet it is.
Wisdom - we think of this more with a person, someone who is wise. Is this person all-knowing? Maybe full of common sense? What I think of when it comes to wisdom is, quite simply, the ability to stay in a place of learning and contemplation through a lens of truth. A child cannot be wise because they have not had the experience to learn and contemplate and especially not understand truth.
Truth - This one is very difficult for me. There are so many things that seem on the surface to be true, but is it? I have not seen truth in its purest form because I have not studied enough. I am not wise either.
Though I have a deep desire, and always have, to learn and grow, I am no where the point of where I would call myself wise.
Beauty - We all know this. We each have an idea of what is beautiful. But the type of beauty I am talking about is going deeper. Moving past the superficial and finding true beauty in the abstract. The beauty of math or astronomy. The beauty in cleaning or preparing a meal. The perfect order that created a tomato or a kiwi.
Maybe even, with a stretch, I can find beauty in our struggle to get out of debt and stay out debt. LOL - maybe one day.
