TOO LATE SMART
“Too soon old, too late smart,” the saying goes. We can do better.
We can learn to wise up sooner in the course of our lives. The culture that cultivates our attitudes and our behaviors can be upgraded. To be wise is to work to realize what is of highest value, bringing that into being, making it so.
Therefore, learning what is valuable and necessary to our optimal thriving is everyone’s proper pursuit—the “pursuit of happiness,” of the highest happiness we can achieve for all, for not only humans but the biosphere that sustains all life on Earth.
We can grow wise.
