We all know we need to be able to live in a structured, organized way that keeps us on track. It is very true to say that you need to have some discipline to get where you are going. Discipline is one of the most valuable qualities we can acquire. We need to be able to use our self-discipline to keep us on course. That is one of the reasons why wisdom is organized life.

A wise man knows that they have to be careful how they use their own wisdom. Because that wisdom could very well be abused and put to bad use, or it could be used in a way that will not serve any purpose. And then the person who abused the wisdom could possibly become very wise indeed. Then the person who has abused their wisdom may not be so wise after all. And this is why we need to understand what wisdom is and what we should do with our wisdom. The wise use their wisdom for good. For the wise, it always works out.

So, if you are looking for something organized life, then you have to understand that wisdom is organized life. And so, it is wise to utilize your wisdom in a great way. You need to do that, so you are able to realize that which you want. You need to be careful however because too much wisdom is not always wise.

The reversal takes place between friends, lovers, and from within in the outgroup. To the ends of the earth, I will follow you from the outside looking in.
