Wisdom is in the heart. We may seek education, by way of book knowledge, and this is fine - desirable even - but intellectual knowledge alone does not make us wise.
Shirley Williams, LUT, spoke about this in her inspiring Sunday message, "The Search For Wisdom." You can view it HERE.
As we conclude Women's History Month, we celebrate the wisdom of the women of New Thought, for they were truly the pioneers of a whole new insight in Truth - one that turned the theretofore patriarchal world of religion upside-down.
Certainly our own Myrtle Fillmore, who co-founded this Movement with her husband, Charles, is a prime example, but there are also such luminaries as Nona Brooks, Mary Baker Eddy, Emma Curtis Hopkins, H. Emilie Cady, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Genevieve Behrend, Elizabeth Towne, and so many more!
Charles Fillmore, in The Revealing Word, defines Wisdom as: "Intuitive knowing; spiritual intuition; the voice of God within as the source of our understanding; mental action based on the Christ Truth within. Wisdom includes judgment, discrimination, intuition, and all the departments of mind that come under the head of knowing. This 'knowing' capacity transcends intellectual knowledge. Spiritual discernment always places wisdom above the other faculties of the mind and reveals that knowledge and intelligence are auxiliary to understanding."
Each of the visionary women of our New Thought Movement models all of the qualities of Divine Wisdom. The same Presence and Power in them lies within you. Remember that you are the Light of God expressing!
As we approach Holy Week 2021, I invite you to celebrate the women in your life, honor the Divine Feminine within yourself, and tap into your Center of Wisdom.
Peace, Love, and Blessings,
