Spirit tells me that we live and share with each other
As teacher and student of wisdom, and that
Wisdom is understanding while knowledge alone
Knowing what is what is not the same as knowing
Why what is what and how to use that knowing
To serve self, community, and Life.
A farmer usually knows more than what
To plant, when to plant, and where to plant.
Why requires understanding based on
The same is true of compassion, He tells me.
The memories or personal pain compel us
To feel the pain of others, or we have not
Suffered enough. It’s as simple as that.
