Where are we between love and wisdom?

“Wisdom says – I am nothing       Love says – I am everything         Between the two my life moves”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Coming across these words of an ancient Hindu mystic recently reminded me of how our lives are in constant flux, even though we so often strive for stability and many of us hate change. It is said that the wise man is one who admits he knows little and the fool thinks he knows all. I often say that love is everything or as the Beatles famously said – “Love is all you need.”


After a long and eventful life I do feel I have developed a modicum of wisdom. Yet there is still so much I do not know and my opinions are much softer than they were in the heat of my youth. So what wisdom says has much truth.


Yet extremes are rarely right. Equally is love all we need and if so what is it?  Love isn't a state of perfect caring. It is active. It is accepting people for what they are; lending a helping hand; giving when we would rather sit and do nothing. And yes sometimes it is also just beaming out good vibes! And on occasions I see that we need many different and simple things. Somewhere between love and wisdom......is where my life is and it is constantly flowing between the two.
