Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honor, when thou dost embrace her.
She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.
Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.
I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.
When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.
Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.
Knowledge is knowing something and Wisdom is knowing it, acting upon it and living it. I know a lot of things but I must admit I'm not wise about many of those same things. A recent event confirmed this.
An e-mail I opened asked me to with a link to a scientific model to show you that what you see isn't what you really see. Click here to view it before reading the rest of the blog: http://games.yahoo.com/blogs/plugged-in/amazing-shade-illusion-see-light-024226513.html After viewing the science simulation I had to view it again. Even after the second time, and squinting my eyes to make sure I hadn't missed something, I realized that it was an illusion and the brain sometimes plays tricks on itself. It is a little alarming. I know that I'm seeing something that isn't something it should be but I can't make my brain see the truth. It is so illogical that it befuddles my tongue to find the words to describe the frustration I feel even trying to explain it.
It reminds me of the time I just came out of the grocery store. As I walked to my car, I passed something bright pink on the concrete wall. It stopped me dead in my tracks. It was this bright pink moth with a black body and fuzzy black eyes. Sounds like I'm lying doesn't it. I couldn't have seen such a thing, I thought this same exact thing so I returned to the store to ask an associate to come and witness it with me because I couldn't believe it myself. Just as I was, the associate was stunned and had also never seen such a sight. I didn't have a camera on me or my cell phone so the memory was my only reference.
For me the right thing to do is to research and find out what I saw. I searched the images under the google image search for "pink moths." Nothing. I couldn't find anything for over a year. After reading my latest issue of Birds and Blooms I read an article by Sally Roth who loves bugs and photographs them. I thought, I'll e-mail an expert or fanatic which ever you prefer, and find out what that thing was. Before I sent the e-mail I tried one more time to search the internet and waalllaaaa. I found one blog who obviously is a fan of moths.
