Three Is The Magic Number

One is good. Two is better. Three is the best.

What makes having three of anything the best? Well, the answer would depend on the person and what the subject is. Here I’m going to be talking about knowledge, understanding, and wisdom, which are three of my favorite things to talk about.

Let’s begin at the beginning:

1. Knowledge

Knowledge, in its simplest form, is to know of. But just because we know of something doesn’t mean it’s correct or even better, that we understand it. But without first knowing of something, we can be made to believe anything. Knowledge of something gives us a starting point. To discover if what we know of will be of use to us, we must use it.

2. Understanding

We establish understanding once we can have what we know of, work in our favor. How do we determine if something will work in our favor you may wonder? Well, we’ll need to use it. Example: If someone gives us directions to a desired location, we will need to travel the suggested route. If we arrive at the destination, the information benefited us. If we don’t, well, you know the rest. We understand knowledge of something when the results produce what we desire. And desired results can only be determined through usage of the knowledge.

3. Wisdom

Wisdom is when what we know and understand can assist others. Therefore, I’m always saying, “Wisdom is wealth best shared.” There’s no greater gift we can give anyone than a means of being self-sufficient. Self-sufficient means to do something without assistance. So, if you are thinking about investing in something, your wisdom will ensure you’ll make a sound decision. The thoughts of others won’t easily sway you. You will inspect the situation. Weigh the pros and cons, and then act accordingly.

We need knowledge if we expect to obtain wisdom, but the knowledge must be correct. The only way we’ll know if knowledge is correct is by using it. If it produces the desired results, we understand it to be true for us. Producing results helps us establish a means to gain wisdom. Wisdom results from what we know and understand, being able to assist others in their endeavors.

Just because something works for us doesn’t mean it’ll work for everyone. Results depend on the desire of the worker. But this one thing is true: If it worked once, it can work again.-Henery X

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering. May all you deserve and desire flow abundantly into your life, as a river does into a sea.

Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.

May we never lose our desire to outdo what we’ve already done.

Continue to be a lighthouse for all those who feel lost in the sea of life.

Peace, Love, and the utmost Respect.
