Wisdom is deep insight serving our ability to generate long-term broad benefits. It usually derives from cumulative experience, well-considered knowledge, compassionate understanding and/or transcendent realization.
Wisdom can be individual and/or collective, human and/or natural. It expands the exercise of intelligence to embrace greater realities, increasing our ability to take into account what needs to be taken into account for long-term broad benefits.
Among the most potent sources of collective wisdom are
the cumulative experience of nature and humanity,
ongoing feedback from people and reality,
expanded spiritual and systemic awareness,
liberating our full human capacities and caring, and
generative interactions among diverse people and perspectives.
Wise democracy nurtures and utilizes all these sources, with a particular focus on the last.
