of an Understanding and Knowledge of God
A: By studying that which is Revealed - Kataphatic
B: By uncovering that which is Hidden - Apophatic
The World is a stage of Physics and Metaphysics. In viewing a Truth of the relationships between things, we can attempt to map our aspirations, goals and tribulations to the same relationship patterns.
It may not always be right
but we can exercise wisdom to make the best decisions based
on a point of understanding, rather than impulse or feeling.
If you can understand even the tiniest of things,
you may have a Lens of Perspective by which
you may gain greater understanding of your situation.
Wisdom and Knowledge are as Real Estate
Acting on that Wisdom makes you wealthy and blessed.
Pride : Faith and Doubt
Faith is of the substance unobserved, and expected. ie: our level of trust exhibited in sleeping from Dusk to the next Dawn.
Analysis Paralysis : Doubt is the shadow of the grave. It "helps" by means of resistance to absorb energy in motion to bring an object to a crawl. in the dark of doubt everything falls under question, and very little gets done.
Things like to keep on doing, what they're already doing. if it is at rest, it wants to stay at rest. If it is moving it wants to keep on moving.
They who are asleep don't wish to be awakened
They who are awake don't wish to go to sleep.
There is a lot of Wisdom in the World
The Wise seek Knowledge to add to their Understanding.
For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written,(^__^) Giving Credit where Credit is Due
“He catches the wise in their craftiness,”
I Corinthians 3:19
(^__^) The Fear of the Lord is the Beginning of Wisdom
