for the Day
Wisdom does not consist in gathering information. It consists in finding a clear access to the Highest.
Since Thou hast come of Thine own great compassion for me,
Who am devoid of all merit,
Wilt Thou not vouchsafe a little boon to me?
Then place Thy saving hand upon mine eyes
And cure me of my blindness
That it may never again hide Thee from me.
That which enshrouds our vision is ignorance. The way out of it is through wisdom. Wisdom is that which keeps us from blundering. It is like carrying a light. We can all unfold it. It rests with us whether we will walk in darkness or whether we will kindle the torch of wisdom in our mind and heart and walk by its light. It alone can show us the way to God.
O Infinite Being, show me the way to You
That I may gain access to Your Presence
And bathe in Your light.
May I never fail to see You.
May I never turn my face away from You,
And may I seek You always with steadfastness and fervent faith.
