The Perfect Fit

The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die. As well the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be mind.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Mind is a flowing quality, not a static state. Mind can accommodate both knowledge and wisdom, intellect and spirit. Mind, properly oriented, is part of the mechanism designed to connect heaven and earth. With mind, you have the power to bring order out of chaos.

Chaos is the absence of order. Knowledge orders perception and provides a framework for understanding. Knowledge is necessary, but not sufficient to effectively and consistently bringing order out of chaos. The intellectual aspect of mind complements the spiritual; both must work together to facilitate the expression of wisdom. Wisdom is essentially the ability to determine what fits where and when.

The perfect fit should be the goal of any and every thought, word and deed. The perfect fit is the point at which the heavenly impulse meets the temporal need. Perfect fit is largely a matter of perfect timing; life is rhythm, rhythm is balance. In balance is peace.

Truth is eternal, unchangeable and never in conflict with itself. Mind must conform with truth for there to be peace of mind. Doggedly holding untruths to be true is a tremendous drain on the creative energy that moves through mankind. Moreover, disputes over the drain are the source of most conflict in the world.

Mental agility – with respect to both the intellectual and spiritual aspects – opens the way for the flowing waters of truth to be perceived, received and expressed. Mental agility is the fountain of originality. Conversely, mental rigidity in both phases of mind constrains to orthodoxy and stagnation.

Everyman has the capacity as well as the opportunity to let true mind manifest in himself. Some may be more fortunate than others in terms of access to knowledge, but knowledge is a bottomless pit for those who pursue it without regard to its spiritual counterpart, wisdom.

Choose ye well!

    I appreciate the distinction you’ve made between knowledge and wisdom Gregg. Most people these days think they’re just one and the same. Knowledge without wisdom could be likened to a runaway fire, extremely ominous and destructive. Wisdom on the other hand brings the comfort and warmth of a fire contained, to oneself and to ones world. These days knowledge is certainly increased in the land…what a crying need there is for those who bring the balm of wisdom. Great post Gregg, thank you!

    Outstanding commentary, thank you. I appreciate your efforts. Holding on to ideas without bringing them up for review is like suffocating yourself. When I look back in my own experience and see how wrong I have been about various things, I am thankful that I was able to change my mind. I see humility as one of our greatest assets. To see the implication of what a perfect fit would mean on a broader scale; try to understand our tax code, for example or a piece of legislation they have become strictures instead of conduits. This process is how a person, nation or world remain relevant.

    Very wise words! If we are struggling in our hearts or minds, we are probably not seeking for that perfect fit, which is a good reminder to take a step back and review our priorities.

    Thanks for your words. It is something to acknowledge that we are designed to be a perfect fit for our worlds in bringing what we uniquely can provide of wisdom and blessings.
