The Price of Wisdom

In this story, a man on his journey up the mountain came across Jesus and Buddha sitting down together.  The man was so inspired that he chose to ask them a question.

“How can I become wise and enlightened?” Asked the man.

Jesus and Buddha looked at each other and replied together, “Good Judgment.”

The man then asked, “How do I get good judgment?”

Jesus and Buddha then smiled and replied together, “Poor Judgment.”

I love this story because it shows us that our challenges and mistakes in life are a very important part of our growing experience.  When we experience a hardship or a mistake in life we have an opportunity to overcome that situation and to learn from it.  A perfect life with no mistakes is a life with no growth.  So the next time you face a challenge or have to overcome a mistake, see it as an opportunity for self improvement. We are all learning as we go. Some of us are learning more than others. The trick in life is not to make the same mistake twice.
