Wisdom Blog Series 5: Wisdom and Folly
[Wisdom from Channeler Rana of Year 2150 AD: Chapter Five: WISDOM AND FOLLY: Booklet “The Prophetess, Conversations With Rana (and Jon Lake, Ph.D. Student, who went to sleep in 1976 and awoke 174 years into the future in a culture known as the Macro Society),” Published 1976] [EXCERPT from a larger collection of conversations compiled by Thea Alexander]
“A wise person knows that the wise exist only as long as there are fools.”
The wise person condemns no one—not the thief who robs nor the killer who murders. For the Wise know that micro man is governed by the micro law of karma which dictates that one can never receive anything except what he has given out. From the Macro View the wise can see that every action is perfect for the growth of every soul and that successes come only through effective use of failure.
Fools of today are often called wise tomorrow for when all are blind but one, only one believes in sight. If that one should dare to tell others what he sees, what else but a fool can they call him. Then when those who were blind begin to see, those who saw before, and were then called fools, are now called wise.
Men like the Berrigan Brothers, Martin Luther King, and Daniel Ellsberg, and women like Bess Myerson, Jane Fonda, and Angela Davis were called fools and knaves. Yet, where your Vietnam War was concerned they were far braver and wiser than your blood drenched leaders and your bloodthirsty patriots.
The thousands of young people who refused to serve in your military machine were wiser and braver than those whose folly created and supported such death and destruction.
So wisdom is love and folly is hate. Wisdom is peace, while folly is war. Wisdom is humble, while folly is proud. Wisdom is freedom from divisions, while folly is feelings of separateness. Wisdom is joyous knowledge that the best possible things will happen, while folly is the fear that something bad might befall you.
Finally, it is wisdom to accept what is as perfect for its time and place, while it is folly to resist what is or to call it bad.
