What is this blog about?

There is no such thing as an expert on the topic of Life. We all have had our battles, our suffering, and our questions. Despite the uniqueness of our personal obstacles, we have endured them. We have endured them well enough to advise those behind us as to how to do the same. I have done the research on your behalf regarding the multitude of reasons why wisdom exists. My mission is to utilize the voices of the world's greatest thinkers and heroes to compose a guideline of life's wisdom so that you don't have to experience those trials alone.

If you have any questions, please tweet them to me @JoeSielski or email me at JJSielskiJr@comcast.net

(Please title your email with the word "Wisdom" so I know it will be for this blog.)

I will do my best to try and answer every question as quickly and efficiently as possible. Thanks.

A Moment for Yourself

Be wary of when others try to project their fears and negativity onto you.

Many people obsess over how others perceive them that it handicaps them from being freely themselves. Many of those individuals also feel safer when others are handicapped with fear as well. There are countless examples of this projection of fear.

You don't have to give into it.

For example, if you want to dance in the grocery store if your favorite song plays on the radio... You can.  Others might stare, but that is a reflection of their own inner rulebook. You can be courageously yourself and help to draw the fear out of others. 
 
Go and make this a beautiful day.

Defining Compassion

The prefix "com" in the word "compassion" means together. Therefore compassion is the understanding that you share the elements of passion with others. However, to fully understand compassion, one not only must understand your shared joys, but also shared suffering.

In truth, the real definition of compassion is the awareness that the suffering of others is equal to your own, and "the desire that all sentient beings are freed from suffering."

A Day Alone

Learn to be content being your own company.
Happiness is a state of mind also, but did you know you get choice?
Which would you prefer?
