Is It Just Me?-Common Sense

Common sense is sound judgment in practical matters. We often speak of the need to develop “common sense,” which others call “prudence” or “discretion.” When you think about it common sense can be thought of as a combination of wisdom and discretion.  Wisdom is knowing what to do; discretion is knowing when and where to do it.  I am a firm believer in the fact that you cannot teach or train common sense!

Part of being a fool is having no common sense or being “void of understanding or awareness.   Most of us see the benefits of gaining wisdom. Many of us also know the folly of being a fool; in my case from errors of my youth.  The Christian Bible says in (Proverbs 13:16; 16:22; 26:11). Proverbs 3:13–14 , “Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.”

Wisdom along the way allows us to see life the way nature intended. When we seek our own inner spiritual perspective, we can make decisions based upon their true and lasting significance rather than selfish interest. When we choose to make decisions based on wisdom  and experience alone, we are exercising common sense.

Common sense is often developed by learning from the consequences of such poor choices—the school street sense educates those of us willing to raise our vibration to notice. Everyone makes bad decisions at some point. The difference between the wise and the foolish is that one learns from their mistakes.   Other keeps repeating them. …”There are none so blind as those who will not see…”  Some people seem born with a more level head, while others are destined to fall into the abyss of their own ego and self-centered-ness. Wisdom and common sense should be continually pursued in order to experience the best that the Universe has to offer.  As always it is your Choice; choose wisely.
