Endowed with wisdom, women and men are led through visible realities to those which are invisible.
So what is wisdom and how do I get it? We live now in what's known as the information age. We are pummeled with facts and figures, opinions and advice. One sage analyzes things one way and another sage another way. And yet the word informed means to be formed from within. Ah ha! you say, that requires thought. You betcha.
T. S. Eliot once said that information is different from knowledge, and it has nothing at all to do with wisdom. Wisdom is a real pathway to the invisible and perhaps unknowable and once attained becomes true information.
One of the vagabond's favorite lines is "Search for the invisible." What do you do when your foot suddenly reaches the edge of the cliff, the edge of your known world, the knowable? Is there something beyond? At this point the uninformed turn back. The risk is too great. Others may sit and stare into space.
What I want to know is that which I cannot see nor measure, that which is neither under my feet nor over my head. I want to know the heart of the invisible.
A certain Kabbalist scholar described God this way: If the universe is a tree, then God is that which is behind the power that moves the sap.
