Wisdom

the key to wisdom

fresh and clean
we’re born into the world…
our hearts, open windows…
our minds, empty slates
we have an innate thirst
for knowledge…
making a perpetual effort
to quench it…
we muddle our way through adversity…
pick our way past
chaos…
acquiring knowledge…
gaining experience…
developing  judgement…
creating a unique law of three
that matures and ripens
over the course of a lifetime…
this law of three…
the key to wisdom

Learn

When asked the purpose of my blog I must admit that some of the posts are silly, some I hope are entertaining but most of all I want to teach. The main goal of “Crooked Creek” the blog, is to inform, to help the reader to learn something that might be new information or old information presented from a different point of view. Thank you for learning with me as we grow together on life’s journey.

“LEARN AS IF YOU WERE TO LIVE FOREVER.” MAHATMA GANDHI

I believe that Gandhi’s advice should be taken to heart. In fact, in my opinion, if we stop learning we have stopped living. I do not refer to formal education but to learning from opportunities that present themselves every day. We can learn from those we meet, from books and other reading platforms and travel. We must be open to learning new things, but also to changing our minds about long-held beliefs. As we live, we should evolve in our opinions, in our way of seeing life and seeing others.

None of us want to remain infants in our behaviors but neither should we be satisfied to think in the ways of our childhood.

Continue to grow, to learn, to evolve and to share your new knowledge with others.
