How does wisdom come to us? How do we become, wise?
We are so many versions of ourselves in a lifetime. Can we see each version and honour it, thank it and move on? Knowing that each version brought us to here and now, knowing that we did the best we could at the time, and if we didn’t we learnt from it.
What do we really need to be happy? The patience to see ourselves without judgement, to see and hear those around us, and to experience the wonder of the world we live in?
Is the Cave Man always here now? Is that why he is happy? Because the past was then, and the future has never been. He has time to be, here.
While we roll on through our different versions, maybe evolving, maybe devolving, but always changing into more of this or less of that, we can try to remember that we were something else, once.
And we will be something else again, now and then. And when we hear someone’s story about how they were something else once, we can choose to listen without offering advice….maybe that is wisdom?

About the Curator: Erin Murray
Erin, a Mother of 1 little man and wife to 1 big man has learnt much about herself in the past few years. After moving from the city to the bush (near the Ocean), there weren’t as many distractions as she had become accustomed to, in a smaller community she lost her anonymity and slowly began to become aware of herself, her feelings, the life she had created for herself and her relationships with others. Seeking change from the feelings and behaviours which had become her normal, she sought out methods to do just that. Slowly at first, then a bit more and a bit more she is becoming aware of what she actually wants for herself and has begun removing the things that aren’t that, inside and out. Learning about faith (not religion:-)), fun and how to be gentle with herself and others along the way.
