Seriously , you can read and aqquire lots of knowledge for the ego which is very subtle , it depends on you . I read a lot because im always looking for ideas from good authors who have gone through or experienced the challenges that im going through . Its like people who are constantly looking for inspiration , To be inspired , you must have great intelligence .
Wisdom has nothing to do with knowledge . If you are reading just for the memory then you are going in the wrong direction , thats what is school system teaches you . If you want to increase your wisdom then you need to accept the challenge .
A friend of mine said he wanted to have a lot of wisdom , i suggested he stop running away from risk , to embrace the unknown and dedicate to reality . By finding the map to your life you start to gain wisdom .
Our roots to reality is not easy , so is wisdom . In fact you can become very knowledgeable which is harmful and dangerous . .Before you start mixing up knowledge with wisdom , you must understand that wisdom comes from dedicating to reality .
Start facing the reality rather than escaping from them . thats how you gain wisdom
