Nothing. You cannot be wise to oneself unless you are able to use your perceived wisdom to assist those who are able to provide you with an insight into your own wisdom.
As an example I use my efforts to improve our World. Theresa May the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom has studiously ignored each and every idea I have for a better United Kingdom and World – as has Malcolm Turnbull the P.M of Australia but he is not relevant to World Affairs. He has chosen to take Australia out of the World with policies that make Australia a technology and Environment backwater and subservient to whoever holds a cheque book.
Theresa May has chosen to use the wisdom of others to chart a path for the U.K. Fine that is Theresa May’s choice. How then does that place my being ‘wise in the mind’?
Well Theresa May is clearing saying to me that my ideas on one of my more prolific subjects; Counter Terrorism and the use of the Quran by ISIS are of no consequence. However, on Quora those who upvote those same views in summary are saying the opposite.
Then there is the White House and President Trump. I have two letters addressed to me personally from the White House on behalf of President Trump – admittedly on different subjects. However, the White House would not have sent them if it thought my ‘ideas for a better world’ were dangerous or not feasible.
Being wise in the mind is of no use unless others are able to encourage and foster the development of your wiseness so as to enable you to promote a objective wiseness and not a subjective one.
That is the key. Wiseness must be objective with no fear or favour. That is what the White House have given me – support for my objectivity. Wiseness must be objective if it is to be of use. It must take into account all views and produce leadership that promotes the right to participate – be it whichever arena the wiseness is produced for.
Wiseness from the top of a Mountain is fine but of little use if it cannot be heard and be seen to be wise.
