“The Beginning of Wisdom”


“Do you know what’s better than waking up to a 6 AM alarm clock, dashing through the house for work, and then suddenly realizing it’s the weekend and you can go back to bed?

Having so much fun, with so many friends, laughing so hard, spending, dining, being merry, and suddenly realizing that this time, you’re not just visualizing.

Happens every day.

I meant to add that this happens every day especially for those who visualize.   (signed)   The Universe”   (Notes from the Universe, Mike Dooley, July 3, 2015)



“Every action, thought, and feeling is motivated by an intention, and that intention is a cause that exists as one with an effect.  If we participate in the cause, it is not possible for us not to participate in the effect.  In this most profound way, we are held responsible for our every action, thought and feeling, which is to say, for our every intention.  … 

Feel you intentions in your heart.  Feel not what your mind tells you, but what your heart tells you.”   (‘Thoughts from the Seat of Soul, Meditations for Souls in Process’, Gary Zukav)



“Wonder is the beginning of wisdom.”   (Socrates)



“There is nothing instructive in a wise saying.  It does not impart to you a skill; it does not provide you new information.  It is education in the purest sense – a drawing out of what has been latent in your understanding.  Your pleasure in the saying does not come from having learned something but from having something you knew elucidated and confirmed.  What we call wisdom is the expression of what we already know in our hearts.”   (Round Up the Usual Subjects, Thoughts on Just About Everything by Robert Brault)
