Knowledge and Wisdom

Whatever is happening all around in the world it just makes me sad. The last 3 months have exposed the worst of humankind because you see humans but no kindness. I used to think that maybe this pandemic (COVID-19) teaches us a lesson about kindness, empathy, and compassion but whatever is happening around us is just dejected. But by the end of the day, the world will know that empathy, kindness, compassion, and love is the answer.

So stay strong, I know it’s not easy, in times like these when we are physically weak and emotionally shattered, I think spiritual strength gives us this insight to look forward to whatever comes in our way. And now is the time we all make ourselves spiritually strong. Reach out to people and help them in these difficult days. And remember, it’s not about how much you’re giving, it’s not about the quantity, it’s about how much love your heart carries when you’re giving something to someone.

Difference between knowledge and wisdom

So we’re going to talk about the difference between knowledge and wisdom. Let’s guide ourselves about are these the same, are these different and if they’re different, how are they different?

Wisdom is the name of practice and action, it’s not knowledge. Let’s discuss an easy side of wisdom to make it facile for all of us to understand. Knowledge tells us what to say like if we are talking about something, it tells us to say this or to speak this, but wisdom tells us when to say that thing. Knowledge is information, whereas wisdom is the understanding and application of that knowledge. And now, the thing in between what to say and when to say — when we join this together, this is wisdom.

It’s truly said by Waqar Faiz, “Knowledge without practice and wisdom is nothing but a veil between you and Him!”

When we seek knowledge without wisdom, it’s nothing except misdeed. Knowledge without wisdom makes us think like I know everything, and he/she knows nothing, I’m everything. Even though he/she is saying right, we try to falsify him/her for our self-satisfaction. Wisdom is the name of hiding what you know to make others feel happy. On the other hand, knowledge is just speaking what you know. So basically, wisdom teaches you to absorb what you know. It makes your heart so much bigger as if the entire sea is filled in it even than you have much more space.

Where do we seek wisdom?

So the point here is knowledge is very common. Everyone has it. So if everyone has enough knowledge so why is there too much bad all around us? It’s because we know, but neither we have wisdom nor we practice it.

Knowledge and wisdom cannot be the same because knowledge tells you what to say and wisdom tells you when to say. And then, knowledge talks about the tangible — things that you can see, but the wisdom tells you about the intangible things — the unseen world. Knowledge is loud, wisdom is polite. You become silent when you have wisdom. You’re not a loud person anymore. Wisdom gives expansion to your heart where you learn to absorb things, whereas, knowledge keeps telling you to say whatever you have.

Wisdom tells you to stay quiet and suck up as much as possible. And last but not least, knowledge tells you about creation whereas wisdom leads you towards the creator. So these two things are never the same. We tend to seek knowledge so much that we forget that at certain points knowledge brings pride in us. It causes more harm. So instead of running towards gaining more knowledge, let’s seek wisdom. Remember, God has planted the seeds of wisdom in all of us, so be willing to find it and water it to be the best human being in the face of this Earth.

How can we empower our souls?

So yes, if you think that you’re emotionally, physically, and psychologically weak then, you need to make yourself spiritually strong. Let’s try to keep ourselves sane when negativity is all around us.

Here are some ways to make ourselves spiritually strong:

  1. Take responsibility for your successes and failures.
  2. Don’t hold on to grudges and be quick to forgive.
  3. Take deep care of the poor, the marginalized and the oppressed.
  4. Maintain your childlike sense of wonder.
  5. Maintain the balance between materialistic gains and spiritual pursuits. And be wary of the dangers of excess yet you have an abundance mindset.
  6. Be a grateful person.
  7. Cultivate a little solitude.
  8. Keep your priorities straight.
  9. Exercise your power of choice.

Wisdom is the knowledge that matters; it has both practical and moral component to it that enriches our lives and inspires us to act wisely. Since the way to innovativeness is brimming with vulnerability, dread, and uncertainty, we normally look for the intelligence of others to shield us from moving. Here are five gems of wisdom to practice in our lives:

Ship and don’t look back

“Practice becoming”

What I needed to let you know, would not take long, namely: practising any art, music, drawing, painting, sculpture, poetry, fiction, essays, reporting, no matter how well or badly, don’t get money and fame, but experience and find what is inside you. This will cause your spirit to develop.

Keep things in context

“Stop whatever you’re accomplishing for a second and solicit yourself: Am I terrified of death since I won’t have the option to do this any longer?” — Marcus Aurelius.

This statement ought to promptly prevent you from wasting your most valuable asset: time.

Creativity as both a lifestyle and career is audacious but rewarding. To just love what we do while likewise being satisfied monetarily and genuinely is a desire and challenge for some. That desire can turn into a reality, yet it takes exceedingly difficult work, commitment, some luck, and time. This is why we must be reminded daily on what’s important and fully commit to the actions that yield meaningful progress.

Build your solid routine

Think about how your day is structured and what you do versus what you need to be doing. It can be getting up ahead of schedule, working for a considerable length of time, and afterwards taking a walk, you have to discover a rhythm — your rhythm. At the point when you make a strong daily practice, you save your willpower for the stuff that matters.

Through this discipline and customized schedule, it will assist you with drawing out your best work, to place your hours in conscious and centred practice, and to figure out how to take on a steady speed so you don’t consume yourself out for some artificial privileged identification that shows you worked eight hours in a row.

Routines will change occasionally because of conditions. The idea is that you have a routine, something that builds the necessary habits to develop your creativity and mind and ultimately do the work.

Focus

It isn’t your business to decide how great something is or how it contrasts with different articulations. It is your business to keep yourself understood and immediate just as open and aware of the urges that motivate you. There is no fulfilment whatever whenever, there is just an eccentric heavenly disappointment, a favoured agitation that keeps us walking and makes us more alive than the others.

How about you?
