Day 19 : Wisdom

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” – Socrates

After having challenged ourselves to practice the full spectrum of 12 Conscious Leadership Qualities or universal human values, we find ourselves in a readiness to receive the four aspects of Shakti needed to THRIVE as a Shakti Leader and as a Divine Human: Wisdom, Strength, Harmony and Perfection. These four powers of Shakti naturally pour into us as a flow of Grace. Together, they are as if the four corner-stones of the new and true BASE or FOUNDATION of a Life Divine, right here on Planet Earth.

Let’s take up today, the first power-base, Wisdom. It is the ability to use your knowledge, experience, and insight to make good decisions and judgments. The quality of being wise in discerning and seeing the bigger picture. Also, it is knowing what one is and what our soul/higher self wishes us to be and do in any moment and in this life. To know and understand the higher purpose of life is wisdom. As Pierre Teilhard de Chardin understood, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” Wisdom is embodied in the mythic divine feminine archetypes of different traditions including Shekinah, Sophia, Pallas Athena or Maheshwari. Sri Aurobindo describes this Shakti for us to better understand.


  • Do I consider Wisdom as my strength?
  • In what situation do I find myself being wise? In what relationship do I find myself being wise?
  • On a scale of 1-10, how do I rate myself as wise and why?
  • If I were to relax something that blocks me from being wise, what is it? And what can I relax and let go, offer up to my higher-self, for release now?

Invitation to access Wisdom

If Wisdom-Shakti were a power I could call upon and enter into relationship with, what would I ask for? How would I do so in a way that is true for me? And for the highest good? Go ahead and invoke this power now.

And find a way to ACT on this Wisdom today.
