True wisdom is knowing that no matter what, you are always wrong.
Memories change, feelings change, and facts change (depending on who perceives them).
We have the ability to let go of our “selves” and know that, in the grand scheme of life, love, and the pursuit of happiness, nothing really matters…
Other than how we choose to perceive things.
Understanding other people’s perspective as a story, not a fact, gives us an opportunity to process their experience as potential knowledge.
Knowledge that can shift our perspective and allow us to become more aware of our place in reality; driving our will, and our lives, forward.
As soon as I realized everything was open for debate; philosophy, fact, science, and faith. Only when I discovered that the things I place value in are all that truly matter, I found I could choose what I want to believe in, and I realized, finally, I could fully believe in me.
Wisdom allows us to accept others thoughts, digest them with our own, and move forward without mental baggage.
Bob Marley once sang, “Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our mind.”
If we can let go of everything, including our “selves”, anything is possible.
From my minds eye to yours…
