Excerpt From Personal Power Through Awareness
Chapter 14 Wisdom: Being Your Higher Self
Greetings from Orin!
Wisdom is the ability to be conscious of what is happening around you, to see the higher truth, and express yourself with compassion. It makes the universe around you friendly rather than hostile. Believing that everything is happening for your good renders negative energy harmless.
When you act from wisdom, you feel good inside. You know that you have stopped for a moment, taken the time to reflect, and reached upward for your direction. What you then create is from that higher space. You have demonstrated wisdom many times. Use your memories of the past to fill your consciousness with visions of yourself as a wise person, rather than to remember the times you were not wise.
Wisdom is the ability to know what is important in your life and what is not, what things are distractions and what things are the call of your soul. It is the ability to sort through all the data that is coming in and select only those things that contribute to your sense of well-being. There may be something you want to accomplish and yet you never have the time; you keep getting distracted by housework, phone calls, demands of other people. Wisdom is the ability to know which activities are truly serving your higher purpose and which are merely distractions from your path. You can make the people, thoughts and events in your life positive, nurturing, and supportive. You can create a personal environment that is beneficial to you, rather than harmful.
Wisdom is understanding your mind and how it works. Your mind is a magnificent tool for learning. Because it wants to keep you motivated to learn more, it is never satisfied. No matter what you do, your mind is always wanting to move on to the next thing. If you identify with your mind you will feel unfulfilled and unsatisfied. As you identify with your deeper being, your soul, you will achieve feelings of inner contentment and peace. The deeper being is the part of you that experiences your feelings and chooses what thoughts to have.
Wisdom is the ability
to know when to act
and when not to.
Wisdom is not the mind, although it includes the mind. Your mind gathers all the facts and tries to make decisions based upon known data. Wisdom comes from combining what is intuitively known, the gut-level feelings, with what is intellectually known. It helps you to know which impulses come from your lower nature and which come from your higher self.
Often your mind presents you with many ideas. More opportunities may come to you than you can possibly act upon. Do not make yourself wrong if you can't seem to bring yourself to act upon what seems to be a golden opportunity. Follow that deeper note of understanding that says in a whisper "wait." If your mind is telling you to wait, but that inner voice says act, take a leap of faith, dare to take a risk–then do so.
- Sit quietly and relax. Think about the day and week ahead. What things are you planning to do that are truly important and what things are merely distractions that could be eliminated?
- Is there anything you plan to do in the next day or week that is an obligation or another's wish of you rather than your own?
- What is the most important thing you could accomplish today? Make the decision you will do it.
