Wisdom is adapting knowledge and experience to a given situation to make sound decisions. It’s how we relate our awareness (how we know) and experience (what we’ve been through) to what we do (acting), what we feel (perception) and how we measure (judging). Wisdom means adding what we’ve heard. It’s studying part-time. Therefore, wisdom comes from (an application). Without doing what we’ve heard, we can’t get understanding.
You can’t read wisdom; you can’t memorize wisdom; you can’t repeat wisdom; you can’t learn wisdom; you can only gain wisdom by practicing what you’ve written, memorized, studied and recited. Only by doing can one gain knowledge. Knowledge cannot be gained by silence (idleness); knowledge must be used (applied) before it can be attained.
Wisdom is part of a sequence of events associated with increasing our mental capacity and memory. It is located in the second stage of our human intellectual development; it is amid two other interrelated elements in which one’s psychological and intellectual ability cannot be fully explored or utilized. To learn how to receive knowledge, you must first consider how it applies and relies on two other factors complementing it.
