“We come together for one purpose,
To bring healing to the people of earth
To release old grievances,
To help provide for others,
To set reasonable boundaries,
And to release all prejudice.
In accord with “As Above, So Below,”
We must work this healing in our own lives,
By power of the Great Mother”
The wisdom of women, especially older women, has always been a quality for which they were known. Although many times negated through the centuries, it is still the basis of many beliefs and customs. Having innate wisdom and the benefit of life experience, the Crone is the wisest of all. The use of wisdom to influence life is found in cultures throughout the world
What is a Crone?
As we enter the realm of Cronehood, we reach the third part of our lives. Being an elder, older women have experienced each stage of existence. They are matriarch, and such, is a wise woman and teacher. They could be a leader, a healer, and a source of organic, spiritual or even magical knowledge.
Within them they have retained reasons or vision of the past and use this wisdom to plan for the future and so they withhold the ability to gather her force once spent in this area and focus their energies and creativity on others matters.
Developing my idea of “Organic Philanthropy” in the 21 century
When we think of wisdom we probably think of sage advice, insightful judicial rulings, and prescient public policy. We probably do not think about turning a blind eye to a disaster in the making
This kind of analysis, taking into account insight and foresight, longer term outcomes, and balancing cognitive and affective processes, may be what makes this an example of wisdom.
Psychologists pretty much agree it involves an integration of knowledge, experience, and deep understanding that incorporates tolerance for the uncertainties of life as well as its ups and downs. There’s an awareness of how things play out over time, and it confers a sense of balance.
Wise people generally share optimism that life’s problems can be solved and experience a certain amount of calm in facing difficult decisions. Intelligence—if only anyone could figure out exactly what it is—may be necessary for wisdom, but it definitely isn’t sufficient; an ability to see the big picture, a sense of proportion, and considerable introspection also contribute to its development.
Mind in nature and Human learning
Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910), Russian author, essayist and philosopher wrote the epic novel War and Peace (1865-69),
Man in connection with the general life of humanity appears subject to laws which determine that life. But the same man apart from that connection appears to be free. How should the past life of nations and of humanity be regarded—as the result of the free, or as the result of the constrained, activity of man? That is a question for history. (Epilogue 2, Ch. VIII)
According to “Interesting Research Findings about Wisdom”
Wisdom is a positive predictor of successful aging. In fact, wisdom is more robustly linked to the well-being of older people than objective life circumstances such as physical health, financial well-being, and physical environment (Ardelt, 1997; Baltes, Smith, & Staudinger, 1992; Bianchi, 1994; Clayton, 1982; Hartman, 2000).
It is distinct from intelligence as measured by IQ tests (Sternberg, 2000). Indeed, Sternberg goes so far as to suggest that intelligent, well-educated people are particularly susceptible to four fallacies that inhibit wise choices and actions. You can read more about these fallacies in Sternberg’s entertaining book Why Smart People Can Be So Stupid (2003), but I will summarize them here. As you read the list, see if you can generate relevant examples of famous political and business leaders who have been susceptible to these fallacies!
==> The Egocentrism Fallacy: thinking that the world revolves, or at least should revolve, around you. Acting in ways that benefit you, regardless of how that behavior affects others.
==> The Omniscience Fallacy: believing that you know all there is to know and therefore do not have to listen to the advice and counsel of others.
==> The Omnipotence Fallacy: believing that your intelligence and education somehow make you all-powerful.
==> The Invulnerability Fallacy: believing that you can do whatever you want and that others will never be able to hurt you or expose you.
The source describe wisdom as a form of strength that refers to the ability to take stock of life in large terms, in ways that make sense to oneself and others
Wisdom is the product of knowledge and experience, but it is more than the accumulation of information. It is the coordination of this information and its deliberate use to improve well-being. In a social context, wisdom allows the individual to listen to others, to evaluate what they say, and then offer them good (sage) advice.
Famous paragons of wisdom include the major religious leaders of history–leaders such as Jesus, Lao-tzu, the Buddha, and the Prophet. Famous statesmen and stateswomen throughout history such as Winston Churchill, and Eleanor Roosevelt are also exemplars of the strength of wisdom
Since the time of Aristotle, wisdom has been contemplated by philosophers, theologians, and most anyone concerned with the Good Life and how to live it. (For a good review of the history of wisdom, see Assmann, 1994.)
There is much overlap between the way the two groups conceptualize wisdom and their research findings are often complementary
In conclusion of source of research, I define Wisdom as realm of Cronehood, blooming out from the benefit of life experience; within what the elders have retained reasons or vision of the past and uses this wisdom to plan for the future and so they withhold the ability to gather her force once spent in this area and focus their energies and creativity on others matters.
I am using organic Philanthropy as a name for the Crone, built in elders as part of reasons for building a stronger future based on vision and reason.
Our attitude makes a huge difference in our ability to connect with others because we are all human beings who touch each other’s lives
We are already important; we don’t have to prove ourselves to anyone. We are already good enough. It is more dependent on how much love we are putting out into this world, no need to fight, don’t flee…just flow
Giving up to become a channel for the flow of positive energy. Flow of a stream of energy that is filled with love, caring and compassionate
We use the flow instead of the fist to create harmony in the midst of conflict
The world of science has discovered that we do not end where our skin does; there is a light of energy field around our personal body and our physical, mental and spiritual state determine the ‘’health’’ of that body around us which is called “chi”
It can be positive and expansive or negative and limited
There’s an element missing in many books, it’s the very same element that’s been lacking in our society- which explain why it is losing its way, as you may have already guessed, I am referring to the element of spirituality
