The Differences Between Ancient Wisdom and Conventional Wisdom

Wisdom is the essence in life and living; wisdom is everything. Without wisdom, life has no purpose and no goal, and you just drift along, day after day, as if nothing is a miracle. Without the wisdom in life and living, you may easily become easily depressed. 

Albert Einstein once said: “There are two ways to live: one is as if nothing is a miracle, the other is as if everything is a miracle” So, to live your life as if everything is a miracle, you need wisdom, and not knowledge. Human wisdom has to do with thinking, which is the human mind.

Albert Einstein also said, “Thinking is difficult; that’s why so few people do it.” Thinking is a process of self-intuition through asking relevant questions to create self-awareness and self-introspection. It is the natural habit of the human mind to try to solve problems by asking questions. Through solving problems, the mind can then make things happen. Asking questions is self-empowering human wisdom because it creates the intent to learn, to discover, and then to change. Understand the importance of asking questions, and continue to ask meaningful and relevant questions throughout your life.

There are differences between ancient and conventional wisdom. But true wisdom does not change: what was true thousands of years ago is also true in this day and age. The essentials do not change, although the perceptions of these essentials may vary. To know the differences between ancient wisdom and conventional wisdom of thinking, read my published article to know more. This 1,000-word Ezine article may help you understand better what is true human wisdom so that you can live your life as if everything is a miracle.

Get both ancient and conventional wisdom to free yourself from depression.
