Mind Knowledge & Soul Wisdom

We live in a Universe that works according to its laws. Nobody knows where the beginning is and where the end will be. A universe in which Nothing is random and everything follows an order that man is still trying to know. It is said that “Knowledge is power.” (Francis Bacon). Yet, what knowledge are we talking about? Is it mind knowledge or soul wisdom?

You get knowledge from books, but wisdom is within you 

We read, learn, get educated, get diplomas and yet we know so little. But some people did not go to school or have in-depth studies and know things that those who get educated do not know. Also, some children surprise us with wise words that come out of their mouths. They haven’t been to school yet and still, they know things that require a lot of learning or life experience.

Moreover, nature surprises us even if it does not get educated. Moreover, it resists storms, snow, “death” because it follows what it knows.

The sun rises and sets in the same way always… no one knows for how long. The trees put on and take off their clothes following their knowledge. The flowers grow and bloom following their knowledge stored in the tiny seed from which they are born. Also, water can retain information, says Dr Jacques Benveniste and Dr Masaru Emoto shows that through his experiences.

In the society we live in, we call people who follow the wisdom of their soul as successful people or chosen people. They are the ones who do not follow a certain pattern but follow their path, dreams and desires.

Successful people are people who do not give up what they want. They follow their soul. They are not scared of failures because they know that every failure is just a lesson. Instead, they use all the opportunities that life offers and follow their path regardless of the obstacles arising. They look for solutions using mind knowledge. 

Is knowledge good or bad?

Knowledge is a treasure, but the practice is the key to it.

– Lao Tzu

Knowledge can be good

Knowledge is good as long as it is used for the good of All. Not only for those who feel strong due to their premises they have arrogated to themselves and the fear they manipulate the masses with.

You can think of those who had believed in their dreams and did not let themselves be intimidated, those who defied the lack of trust they encountered. Thus, there is electricity, cars and technology. Those who invented them believed in the power of their dreams. They believed in the unseen and gave a good sense to knowledge. They had the desire of the soul and used the knowledge of the mind to create what was once just a desire coming out from the wisdom of the soul.

We all belong to the same planet, the same Universe as nature does. It gives us everything unconditionally. What about the man…? 

Knowledge can be bad

Many centuries ago, knowledge and both books and soul wisdom were punished to death in different ways because of money and the wish pf power. Nowadays, we live in a society where almost everything comes down to money and power. We are punished in a more sophisticated way: the poison in daily bread, water and food. The poison from the media, and the internet that chains through fear the knowledge of the mind and the wisdom of the soul. Also, through wars and bad news that separates and keep us divided us into races, colours, nations, religions… 

Knowledge can be bad.

Who owns the knowledge?

With or without much knowledge, we are all created the same. It is said that we are created in the image and likeness of a god. But the same god wants to punish us and does not want us to know.

He seems to be a selfish, an egotistic god. He wants knowledge only for himself. In this way, manipulate people through fear and make you believe that he or another/ others have more power than you do. Are you not created in his image? Then, you know, too.

Who has more power than you?

Trying to believe outside you, you feel weak and small. It is said that you give your power to the people and things you believe in. Whereas when you believe in yourself, the power is yours. Therefore, when you do things as you feel them, following the wisdom that comes from within, you feel good, you feel happy. Following that, your mind will use the knowledge gained from books to find solutions to what you want.  

It is the way that creates a balance between heart and mind that you need to become the creator of your life. Or it is said that your mind descended into your heart.

We have our knowledge vs. wisdom that resides in our soul. It believes in the unseen but it is what it knows. Where your mind finds thousands of doubts and reasons for not doing something, your soul will only tell you to move on. By believing your soul, you know that your power lies in you, in your soul wisdom and mind knowledge. You know that anything is possible.

Learning to know

The knowledge of all things is possible

Leonardo da Vinci

When learning to know, you often fall on your way. But that is not because you don’t have the right to know or that you are worse than others. You fall just to learn to use every opportunity that is offered to you!

Your power of knowledge is not tied to a saviour outside you. Don’t expect anyone to drip anything into your heart because you are the one who has to knock on the gate of your soul “knock and it will open for you”. You are the one who needs to believe in him “believe and do not research”. The only hero is you and you will open the gate when you return to the wisdom of the soul and believe what it tells you.

See your soul as your teacher that is with you all the time. It always gives you the wisdom you need, and your mind offers the knowledge of the solutions for what you want. You choose how you use both your mind knowledge and soul wisdom. Just remember:

A true teacher would never tell you what to do. But he would give you the knowledge with which you could decide what would be best for you to do.

How old are you now?

How old are You now?

I have been told several times in the last years that I should dye my hair again.

  • Why, was my question.
  • To hide your age.
  • Why should I hide my age? I didn’t steal the years, I lived them. How did I live them? As I knew. Therefore, who can tell you how old YOU are now?

That question above and other things that have happened to me in recent years have made me feel on my skin how much the older ones are being put aside. How much they are considered a nuisance.

However, I have 2 questions for those who do these things:

  • How would you feel if you were in an old person’s shoes?
  • Have you ever wondered that maybe you won’t get to enjoy the days of that age?

Who is old? 

Gray hair is a crown of life.

― Lailah Gifty Akita

According to some, you are old after 45-50 years. According to others, you are old after 70 years. In my opinion, you can be old even at 25 and not even consider yourself being old at 95. Being a small child, my parents and relatives used to call me “the old lady”. You are as old as you feel.

However, our society has a very important role in seeing you old as fast as it can. He sees you as a worn-out garment to be thrown away. To work and retire, you must be as old as possible. To enjoy certain benefits you must be as young as possible. Here I am referring to all the restrictions that are imposed on the labour market, and benefits of all kinds you are cut from if you have passed a certain age. I mean, you’re good young as a slave, then you should die as fast as it can.

If you are old, you are not worthy

Why? Because you are no longer employed or you are overwhelmed if you want to change your job. Who else will hire you is the first question you are asked. Or why you want to change a job, is another.

Also, age is very important if you want a loan, or to buy a car or a house.

It is as if you are not allowed to know how to do more things or want to do something else in this life. You maybe realize later that you should do something else that suits you. Or maybe after years, you realize how important it is for your soul to do what you enjoy and not what others want.

No matter your age, You are born being worthy!

Why do we run away from the “age”?

We, generally, run away from the elderly. We tend to act like being older is the worst thing that can happen to us. My opinion is that we run away from them because we are afraid of how we can look when we are at that age. We are afraid of old age and death. As if the youth is the asset of eternal life, and old age is the proof of imminent death. But can you say how long you are going to live?

Getting old is like climbing a mountain. You are a little bit out of breath but the view is much better.

You are always the same age inside

For as long as I know, most of my best friends are older than me and children. I appreciate the story and the man’s wisdom who went through life, and the joy he shares to those eager to listen. I enjoy the happiness painted on the child’s face when he manages to do something on his own even if many do not give him any chance to succeed.

Besides, I see two ways of the simplicity of life in children and the elderly. On the one hand, the beginning of life. When your mind is not confused by the teaching of all kinds and ego, yet. And on the other hand, the simplicity of the elderly person who has gone through a lot along the path of life. The one’s who understands that it is much easier to live according to your heart desire and enjoy every day that is still destined for you now and here.

We do not have eternal youth, no matter how much we colour our hair or face. The only eternal youth is that of the soul.

We are always the same age inside.

– Gertrude Stein

Old or not, I’m not ashamed of my white hair, and I’m not ashamed to wear it the way it is. I am NOT ASHAMED OF MY AGE. For me, white hair is a joy that many others are not going to know it here and now.

Moreover, years may wrinkle your skin, but your wrinkles are the pages of your life written on your face. I like the way Mark Twain says it: “wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.”

How old are YOU now?

No matter what is written on your birth certificate, for Age is just a number.

Age isn’t how old you are but how old you feel.

― Gabriel García Márquez

How can you stand like a tree?

How can you be like a tree?

A tree is a symbol of connection to all things. It is a child of Mother Earth and Father Sun, a symbol of life. Its roots reach deeply into the soil, while branches extending into the sky. We do like spending silent and intimate hours in their gracious company. Yet, how can we be like them?

Stay grounded.
Connect with your roots.
Turn over a new leaf
Bend before you break.
Enjoy your unique natural beauty.
Keep growing.
 - Joanne Raptis

Stay grounded

The tree bends to the winds. Life gives us beautiful and ugly moments we hate. It gives us the storms that sometimes turn our lives upside down. We bend to the trials of life of all kinds. However, we could stop, or move on.

It is not easy to be successful in some of life’s battles. Sometimes you feel alone in front of the storms. Sometimes you lose people and things. The most difficult storms are your inner storms and only you can deal with them.

Despite all the storms, a tree is holding its leaves. The wind can blow them, but the tree does not die because of losing them. It keeps standing and waiting for another spring and other leaves.

You are the one to stay grounded for yourself, for in your heart you will be always strong and grounded.

The greatest lesson a tree can give you is to stand tall and proud, no matter how strong life’s winds blow against you.

― Matshona Dhliwayo

Connect with your roots

In the egoistic society, we leave our roots and the motherland because of money. You try to make new roots in other places. Despite that, at some point, your real roots will call you back.

I have lived abroad for a few years. I visited some countries and was a USA tourist for short. Even if I loved all the places, I never had the feeling that I can make connections with my roots in those places. I have never felt I was belonging there.

Living abroad I realised a thing: my life is not only about money. My life belongs to this land where I have decided to be born. It is like the only place where I gather strength from my deepest roots. However, for moving forward I had to let my past go.

Turn over a new leaf

It is not easy for us to let the past go. Also, it is not easy for us to see that there are people who succeed differently than we do. It is not easy for us to get over what has been or is bad in our lives. Only letting the past go, forgiving what our mind is considering wrong in our lives, or the people around us, we can are free ourselves from what we do not need in our lives. We are releasing a weight we feel carrying all the time in our back.

This is the only way we return to living the only moments we have all the time, the present ones. In this way, we are like the tree, letting the dead leaves drop and turning over a new leaf.

Enjoy your unique natural beauty

I said so many times that there are no two exactly alike. Yet, society wanted us to be like clones. Or robots. We cannot be. Moreover, every single one of us has a unique beauty. Maybe some are looking for external beauty. Many times it is given by the make-up, brand cloths … It is a fake beauty. In my opinion, the real beauty is hidden inside you, in your soul. Everyone is beautiful in his way. You only have to look in your soul, beyond the eyes.

Loving yourself and being content with your beauty you can see the beauty of others.

A tree has its beauty as a tree. A human being has his inner beauty, for you are not just flesh and blood. You are a piece of light and love, and a drop in our humanity.

In a forest of a hundred thousand trees, no two leaves are alike. And no two journeys along the same path are alike.

― Paulo Coelho

Keep growing

We are taught to know that we cannot do many things. You cannot do because of … thousands of reasons. One of them can be that others stop you, or are against you. They can be. What about you? What does stop you?

In a forest of thousands of trees, each one has or makes its space to grow. They do not kill each other, just keep growing. They follow the light, equally their truth. Overall, there is room for all of them, and room for plants and birds, and animals … There is room for everyone.

Trees keep growing and the more a tree grows, the more it grounds firmly and dreams high. It is because it knows that all it has is itself and growth requires patience.

You grow accepting your past as lessons you are here to learn. Accepting people around you as being part of your experience here on earth. Doing good and sharing your love.

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.

– Herman Hesse

Trees generously share fruits, shadow, air with all of us. What about you? Can you be like a tree and share your love with All?
