The Metamorphosis of Wisdom
Wisdom is that which makes a vessel into a teacup when it is filled with tea, a sauce dish when it is filled with sauce, a rice bowl when it is filled with rice, and a medicine pot when it is filled with medicine. There is no set method in the functioning of this wisdom. It is simply that which knows how to utilize things according to the case at hand.
wisdom is not so much learned as it is aquired. that is why it is so associated with age. wise people seem to be older people. this though is not necessarily true however and wisdom is not automatically aquired with age. we must open our hearts and minds in order to aquire wisdom.
the beginner has many options
the expert has none.
idea from i believe 'zen mind beginners mind'
From the promise land in Lipscomb Alabama
Where golden eagle table syrup and buffalo rock
And the train whistle blows
