Wisdom Glossary

Wisdom Glossary is a list of key words for developing wisdom. Words are listed in alphabetical order and linked to entries in public online encyclopedias or dictionaries. These words are recommended for further research as concepts that are highly beneficial and need to be further explored and developed to bring higher levels of wisdom into the world. According to wisdom teachings, the topics, words, and concepts that are pondered and focused on will multiply and grow in the mind of those who dwell on them. Thus the goal of this glossary is to provide beneficial and edifying "food for thought". The depth of many of these words or terms can be unfolded through contemplation and study of their deeper implications. Just like food, these terms can be crunched on, chewed, masticated and savored and mentally digested and can positively transform the reader from deep within.
