Wisdom is the balance between emotionality and rationality April 18, 2015
“There must be some reason for having rationality in us. Why God has given us rationality? He doesn’t believe in values like that. Rationality gives us the sense to understand that we cannot reach there through rationality because unless and until this thing happens to you, you are not going to believe.
You are not going to believe in it that this rationality on which we depend which is our support, which is we, we all the time think that our identification is complete with rationality and we are very rational, we are proud of it, the rationality also. So then you reach a point by, through rationality where you will understand that this is not the horse which will be useful any further.
This is the use of rationality; one way it takes you to that culminating point where you think it is to be decided or cannot be dependent upon, on the other side rationality gives you a view, a view which can be related later on, when you get realized.
You start understanding why rationality must be obtained, so it’s, it’s a teacher on a negative way, it’s a teacher on a negative way, but it’s a deception, because man was given freedom and he started using his freedom, he started using his rationality, when he reaches that point then he starts depending on his wisdom and wisdom is the balance between his emotionality and rationality, in the center, between his heart and his mind. ”
