If you could choose between intelligence or wisdom which would you choose?
Most of us understand intuitively that wisdom includes intelligence but goes further. Wisdom appears to come with age and experience; sometimes we say that a young person is “wise beyond their years”. Wisdom has a timeless quality. Intelligence, on the other hand, is associated with past learning.
So, what does wisdom mean? A Course in Miracles says:
“Innocence is wisdom because it is unaware of evil, and evil does not exist. It is, however, perfectly aware of everything that is true. The resurrection demonstrated that nothing can destroy truth. Good can withstand any form of evil, as light abolishes forms of darkness.” Page 38, Text.
Today with Eloisa Ramos, we explore Chapter 3 of ACIM. We look at the definition of wisdom; and since it is defined in terms of “innocence”, we also ask: What does innocent mean?
“If nothing but the truth exists, right minded seeing cannot see anything but perfection. I have said that only what God creates or what you create with the same Will has any real existence. This, then, is all the innocent can see. They do not suffer from distorted perception.” Page 39, Text.
