Living Beyond the Notes
Written by ANDREW EALES
“Humanity grows more and more intelligent, yet there is clearly more trouble and less happiness daily.
How can this be so?
It is because intelligence is not the same thing as wisdom.”
Lao Tzu: Hua Hu Ching (translated Brian Walker)
The big question for us all is this: what do we do with our knowledge?
Do we accumulate knowledge simply to “fight back”, to be “better” and more “successful” than the next person?
Or does our own self-improvement and development go hand in hand with generosity towards other people?
There are many possible responses, but it’s important to recognise the priority of wisdom over knowledge, because this leads to happiness and peace.
