18S10 — Sol Robeson

A collection of notes on Wisdom.

The end of the cycle is that of the independent, clear-minded, all-seeing Child. That is the level known as wisdom.

To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, but so to love wisdom as to live according to its dictates, a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity, and trust.

There are two wisdoms: the first inclines to action, the second to inaction.
—Stanislaw Lem, Cyberiada

action

Ahimsa, or Cause no injury, do no harm, is a Buddhist concept referred to as nonviolence, and it applies to all living beings—including all animals.

Be mindful of impermanence.
Be careful of idleness.
—Unknown

action wisdom

inaction

Wu Wei means without doing, causing, or making. It flows like water, reflects like a mirror, and responds like an echo.

Many people are afraid of Emptiness,
because it reminds them of Loneliness.
—Unknown

inaction wisdom
