57 – On Wisdom …

Wisdom is our most exalted quality. It is the primordial, creative, and self-reflective Force that, throughout eons of evolution, has developed a mind able to advance into greater and greater understanding of ourselves and our relationship with the world that gives us Life.

So how bad the betrayal of the human mind has been that we have come to think that it is our right to destroy that world.

Yet this is the way those making the decisions for us have come to think – so far away from Wisdom – that forcing populations to consume without moderation; inciting division and hate, pushing essential knowledge about our dependency on Nature to the bottom rungs of Education, is best for an economic doctrine based on unsustainable consumption and growth, and for their pockets.

Under the domination of this devastating way of thinking, our centers of Knowledge … our schools, our colleges, our universities … are bent into promoting the most destructive doctrine our world has known.

I do believe that most of our leaders arrived at their positions driven by a youthful and honest intention to do good, but they are corrupted by a dogmatic and inflexible way of thinking that re-enforces the perception that Nature is a resource to be exploited, where irrationality is encouraged and respected, and where unsustainable and un-natural growth is the measure of progress.

It is baffling to see that the Physical Sciences, entrusted with a catalog of Theories that, were they not drowned in bureaucracy and obscurity, would open the doors into a new Paradigm with which we can begin to conceptualize the Universal in us, the primordial Forces that put us together – atom by atom, cell by cell – into a highly dependent yet immensely adaptable organic system.

Very early in our lives we are driven away from Wisdom. It is thus most of us cannot see the beauty blatantly displayed in front of our eyes: The beauty of a Universal Order that defines and binds our lives; the Beauty of ancient forces that instinctively drive us to move onward, striving to leave our mark in the world.

Under our current Paradigm we are told that we are too insignificant in the scheme of the Universe to have Meaning. In Blaise Pascal’s words: “For after all what is man in Nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either. The ends of things and their beginnings are impregnably concealed from him in an impenetrable secret. He is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness out of which he was drawn and the infinite in which he is engulfed”. And yet … and yet! … it is in this ‘central point’ where we find ourselves, that we somehow know how to bring together, meaningfully, the infinitely small in our bodies into an intricate organization that tries to unravel the profound yet decipherable secret in which we are engulfed.

I am not even that clever, but the immense crisis our dominant Paradigm is bringing upon us is crystal clear to me. Devised hundreds of years ago when the population of our species was not affecting the environment the way we are affecting it now, our Paradigm has turned us into a devastating species.

Denied to us by the lies we are constantly fed to support this devastation, there is a magnificent Order we don’t know much about yet glimpse at times when we hold the miracle of a new born life in our arms; or witness the movement of creation, dissipation, and re-creation within us and all around us; or are touched by the implacable fury or delicate tenderness of Nature; or are filled with inexpressible wonder in a moment of ecstasy; or delve into the realm of Wisdom and sense the universal aligning within us.
