Strength Through Wisdom

Credit: unknown
you are the flame...
watch the video

“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”

When the wind blows through the harp

The strings will speak

So are we...

Waiting in patience to be

What we are destined to be...

The barriers will never restrain

Nor hold captive

Truth or wisdom

Drinking from a holy chalice

Quenching my body and soul

Refreshed are my parched lips

When I was to perish

You brought me

The water of life and grace....

Giving me strength to persist

Light for mine eyes to see

My limbs restored

My heart born again...
