Wise And Wisdom - Poem by Lawrence CH Hiun

The nature of wisdom,
The nature of insight is such that
If you know that something is good and
You don’t do it, you loose your insight.

If you want to develop wisdom and deep insight,
Put into practice as soon as possible what
You understand to be right thing to do.
If you do just this one thing I assure you that you
can develop your deep spiritual qualities.

Be more mindful, your mind will tell you;
The right thing to do.
No matter how much;
we know if we don’t put it into practice,
what is the point of knowledge.

Learning a few things at a time, and
immediately putting them into practice.
That is the most important thing to do,
Don’t wait for more knowledge.
Do what you know right now,
That will make you know more and more.

Wise person becomes wiser;
When they do what they know now and it will make it easier
For you to do the next thing.

Take small steps to improve ourselves every day,
Consistently and with determination,
It gets easier as you go on.
As long as you head in the right direction and
Keep going you’ll get there.
