Nowadays we say, compassion and wisdom, it has to be inseparably together.
When we think about wisdom, sometimes we simply say that ‘Oh, yeah, I agree with every master, I agree with all the teachings. ’ Yes, that is very good. But to develop the real wisdom, you need to have understanding from the bottom of your heart.
Wisdom comes down to separation from ignorance, separation from ego, but that very separation comes from your time investigating into the projection of thoughts, the projection of mind and then having a clear understanding, and that’s something that you will never regret.
The cause of problem is ignorance and ego. The solution of wisdom is a strategy. If you don’t have a strategy, having a sense of empty wisdom up there in your head is not going to solve everybody’s problem, and such wisdom is useless.
Strategy comes down to a clear judgment. Clear judgment and a good judgment comes down to making a decision without influence from your ego, or from your ignorance. If you are far away from ignorant and ego, then any decision you make, any strategy that you may implement to benefit other, it will show the result by itself.
