“Neo, sooner or later you’re going to realize, just as I did, that there’s a difference between knowing the path and walking it.”
You will discover that there are two paths you can follow; one that leads to knowledge and one that leads to wisdom.
The path of the mind is the path of knowledge. People who follow it, know a lot about a certain subject. They know a lot about love, forgiveness, understanding and compassion. They know everything about what it means to be spiritual, delivered, or enlightened. Filled with pre-conceived ideas and concepts, they are intellectuals who know a lot about the path but have never walked it.
The path of the heart is the path of wisdom. People who walk it, understand that knowledge, without experience is just information. They seek the transformation resulting from experiencing love in every fiber of their being. In forgiving someone who broke their heart into a million pieces. In understanding the lesson behind every challenge. In feeling compassion for their fellow human beings.
Instead of concepts, they share stories of loss, miracles, and challenges. Through their stories, they heal, inspire and uplift themselves and others. By walking their path, they are transformed into wise men and sages.
Every day, before you step out of bed, you get to decide which of these two paths you will follow.
Will you follow your mind and seek more knowledge? Or, will you follow your heart and grow wiser?
From my heart to yours.
