Life is about suffering – to live on earth is to suffer. To live without undue suffering you need to gain wisdom. Wisdom is hard to define, yet easy to see. Wisdom is experience and deep thought combined to see the entire world from a better perspective, a higher view. When you strive to gain wisdom, you see suffering differently. You accept what you can’t change and work to change what you have control over. Wisdom creates patience and encourages effort. Wisdom increases competence and confidence. Wisdom allows you to suffer better and maybe even to suffer well.
