It is often said that wisdom is gained through the experience of applying knowledge.
In todays research driven information age, where so much knowledge seems contradicting, this should increase our value for wisdom over knowledge. The more we can listen too and learn from those who have gone before us, and worked out what things stand the test of time, may help us make sense of this seeming conflicting research.
The way our body’s work has not changed in thousands of years but the way we use it and the environment we put it in physically, chemically, emotionally and electromagnetically has changed greatly. The result of this is an increase of chronic illness to levels never seen before.
It may be time to look at the type and quality of the knowledge we are turning too and creating our habits from, as we become what we continually repeat.
Perhaps the wisest thing we can do is begin to critically question the quality and motivation of the knowledge that is being thrust upon us in the 21st century.
