flowerI’ve been struck to witness attempts to define “common sense”.  They all seem to fall so short.  The reason being, the nature of life that would provide a context for the answer is not readily available.

We know there is an underlying basis to all existence that is the source of infinite harmony and intelligence.  We also know it is common to all people.  “Common sense” is simply sensing into that level and acting from that place.

So what is “wisdom”?  “Wisdom” is simply taking that to a deeper level.

This nicely illustrates how the essential context for life and existence (the big picture) provides answers to many questions that are otherwise elusive and fleeting.  Attempting to answer such questions without this context is putting the cart before the horse.  That lack of understanding is the unfortunate foundation of most philosophies.
