True Wisdom

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.~Socrates

Laughing as I was listening to some people argue over who was right and who was wrong. I knew they were both right, as their realities were different. But what about scientifically proven facts?! What about factual evidence that something did or did not exist?

As I contemplated this one, after a friend made reference to a recent talk by Greg Braden. Greg Braden discussed how scientists are now proving things that couldn’t be proven hundreds of years ago. Further, Scientists are disproving earlier theories based on scientific evidence once factual.

After hearing the reference, it got me thinking…what if…if scientists can prove and disprove previous and new theories, just like that…making it documented truth, then doesn’t that mean…I mean technically speaking…they have no idea?! What am I getting at? I am not trying to prove or disprove anything, but I am returning my attention back to Lao Tzu’s greatest discovery…That which is written as the Tao, is no longer the Tao. Meaning, once we label something it is negated and no longer valid anyways.

Our Canvas of Life is forever changing and we can try as we might, but we will never figure it all out…unless we go inwards. Once in…we shall forever know all there is…and nothing all the same.

Content

He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.~Socrates
This does not mean we need to sell everything we own, it merely means being grateful for what we have. No matter the wealth, means nothing unless there’s gratitude present. What if we lose all of our ‘stuff?’ Will we be unhappy? or will  we find happiness wherever we go?

Wealth of Nature

He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.~Socrates

While it is healthy to dream of bigger and better things, it is also harmful to our health. When we focus on consistently having more, we miss out on the abundance we already have. Having gratitude for the abundance we do have only attracts more abundance into our lives…

Socrates quote
