“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity.  Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness.  It's not complex or elaborate.  The real knowledge is free.  It's encoded in your DNA.  All you need is within you.  Great teachers have said that from the beginning.  Find your heart, and you will find your way.”
― Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq'ij of the Eagle Clan

Wisdom is the birthright of every person, for its essence exists within the soul.  It lies within us, waiting to be tapped as we awaken and grow in awareness.  We often are awestruck by those who utter wisdom.  We call them sages, wise men, or prophets.
Nevertheless, the wisdom of humanity and divinity lie with each person.  You can open the fount of your own wisdom by growing still and seeking connection with it.  Perhaps you imagine it taking a form, having a face, or embodying light of a force of knowing.  The important thing is to listen to its gentle stirring within your self and open up to its guidance.

When wisdom comes, speak about your insight with your guides and check out your interpretations.  Wisdom comes from them, too, to help you on your journey.  Indeed, wisdom comes from many sources of the divine.  I have experienced great wisdom from my four-year-old granddaughter, from a mentally challenged friend, and from a gentle breeze on a sunny day.
Learn from your wisdom, and keep its lessons and promptings ever in your awareness, so that you may continue on your good journey!

Wonderful quote. Sometimes we are wiser than we think. Sometimes, not so much...
