Greetings dear "Sensaru",
I agree with your statement. That is why I thought it unwise to commit the
essay to our LO-dialogue.
So much will be read into it while my purpose was something else. I did
not intend to produce a learned treatise on wisdom. I wanted to convey my
own insight that wisdom begins with respect for creativity.
Your "but it hardly touches the surface" triggered the following thinking
in me. As I perceive it, in my own spirituality there are several layers.
I recently depicted it by using a soil's verical profile as metaphor. The
bottom layer is my creativity. For me to be wise it means that I must show
respect as I delve deeper into wisdom than its surface because sooner or
later I will reach the bottom layer which is creativity.
With care and best wishes,
