A couple of weeks ago, one of my generous readers suggested tweaking something I’d said in our email conversation and pairing it with one of my photos, making a meme.
Hmmm…never would have thought of that on my own. How can I do that?
Turns out there’s a “create your own memes” app that I downloaded to my phone.
What do you think?
I can’t remember what caused me to talk about wisdom, mountains, and rocks, but I recently read the following meditation in Anthony De Mello’s book Awakening:
The governor resigned his exalted office and came to the Master demanding to be taught.
“What is it you wish me to teach you?” said the Master.
“Wisdom,” was the reply. “Ah, my friend! How gladly would I do that were it not for one major obstacle.”
“Wisdom can’t be taught.”
“So there’s nothing I can learn here?”
“Wisdom can be learned. But it can’t be taught.”
Perhaps that’s why so many of us stumble?
I’ve been asked to read a passage at an upcoming wedding—Proverbs 3:1-6 Wisdom Bestows Well-Being
My son, do not forget my teaching,
But keep my commands in your heart,
for they will prolong your life many years
and bring you peace and prosperity.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favor and a good name
In the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him
and he will make your paths straight.
What do you think that means?
Is wisdom inside each and every one of us, waiting to be discovered? Should we look in instead of out?
Thank you to KD for suggesting the meme. I learned and grew a bit from the effort. And thank you to all for reading…and connecting via email. You help me to stumble less, and climb more.
