Taoist Wisdom

To attain knowledge, add things every day.  To attain wisdom, remove things every day.” — Lao-tse, Tao Te Ching

I am not Taoist, but man that seems like a good idea.  It’s different from my definition of wisdom (1), but jives well with the symptoms of wisdom (2).  What I love about other religions and view points is that they can give me a fresh perspective on my own.  Taoism reminds me of what should be aspects of my Christianity, but which I forgot along the way.

1: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”  Psalm 111:10

2: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.”  Isaiah 30:15

I cannot rest by simply desiring to.  But I can rest because of the trust that I put in God.
