Again the meeting laughs. The boy and one of the girls grin sheepishly at each other. The meeting moves on. The exploration of knowing better by thinking slower' eventually brings us to a consideration of wisdom. <a href=''>The</a> dictionary tells us that wisdom isthe capacity to judge rightly in matters relating to life and conduct; But that does not get us very far. What does it mean to judge rightly', or to havesound judgement'? Who is to decide what is right or sound? What sort of knowledge does one need, and how does one learn to make good use of it? All the interesting questions are begged. I am morbid and introspective. I am afraid I will explode at the professor and then I'm finished. I'm beside myself with fear. I asked him to come to see me, since a personal consultation is always more fruitful than a long dissertation by letter. In talking with him, I discovered that this young medical student felt that he should fail. His fear revealed to me that unconsciously he felt inwardly that he should be punished and that the professor should fail him because he was just no good. He admitted that all of this was true. Actually, he was projecting his fear and self-condemnation onto the professor, his parents, and even the university while at the same time, deep down in his heart, he was saying to himself, I should fail. The basic reason for his frustration Why did this young man want to be a doctor and at the same time, deep within himself, also want to fail his exam?

English Walnut Leaves (Juglans regia) In their fresh state, English walnut leaves have an unrivaled sweet, herbal, and aromatic odor. In natural medicine they are used for rinses, compresses, and baths whenever the skin suffers. In cases of acne, but also for itchy skin, rashes, and scaly skin, make a tea and cool it to lukewarm. Place a tea-soaked cotton cloth on the affected area for fifteen minutes. To make an English walnut leaf bath, put on a big pot of water, add a small cup of the leaves, bring to a boil, then take it off the stove. Let it cool, sift out the leaves, and add the liquid to the bath water. English walnut leaf tea can also help in cases of internal infections. It cleanses the digestive tract and lends new strength from within. study of the complex and sometimes troubled relationship between the hare brain and the tortoise mind can help us to get a better handle on this most elusive, but most important, of concepts. The Neills' reactions demonstrate some of the qualities of wisdom. all, wisdom is practical, dealing directly with matters relating to life and conduct'; <a href=''>It</a> is also creative and integrative. <a href=''>The</a> Neillsreframe' a polarised situation in a way that skilfully avoids taking sides. Where the protagonists are stuck in a world-view in which one must lose' if the otherwins', the wise counsellor finds a perspective that integrates and transcends the opposing positions. Apparently stark choices are magically transformed into common purposes. A classic example of this creative reframing occurred during one of the many riots in nineteenth-century Paris, when the commander of an army detachment was ordered to clear a city square by firing at the canaille - the rabble. He commanded his soldiers to take up their firing positions, their rifles levelled at the crowd, and, as a ghastly silence descended, he drew his sword and shouted at the top of his lungs: Mesdames et messieurs, I have orders to fire at the canaille. <a href=''>But</a> as all I can see from here are a great number of honest, respectable citizens peacefully going about their lawful business, may I request that they clear the square quietly so that I can safely pick out and shoot the wretched canaille. <br /><br /><a href=''>He</a> was brought up in a home where his father was tyrannical and despotic. <a href=''>There</a> was a constant battle between his father and mother. <a href=''>His</a> father set standards much too high for him scholastically and otherwise, and the boy, who could not meet his father's standards, felt he was no good and a failure. <a href=''>As</a> a young boy he despised himself and felt rejected. <a href=''>Self-pity</a> and self-punishment were his dominant attitudes as a boy, and as an adult he continually repeated this sense of rejection and self-denial. <a href=''>When</a> one of the professors was critical of his work, he would go back in his mind to his old hurts and the psychic traumas or hurt thoughts of youth, feeling that he was no good and should be punished; <a href=''>After</a> gaining an insight into himself and realizing that often we project our fears, animosities, and self-condemnation outwardly onto people, environment, and invisible forces, he suddenly awakened to the dire results of saying, I am no good; <a href=''>I'm</a> a failure; <a href=''>I</a> should be punished; <a href=''>I'm</a> a flop; <a href=''>It</a> is also cleansing for the skin since it cleanses the intestines. <a href=''>The</a> rule in herbal medicine is if something is wrong externally (meaning on the skin), something is also wrong internally, which is why it is pointless to treat only the external symptoms. <a href=''>The</a> body is a whole organism. <a href=''>Due</a> to the rich concentration of tannins they contain, walnut leaves have an astringent effect and help against fungi and bacteria. <a href=''>A</a> rinse with lukewarm walnut leaf tea after shampooing can also be very effective against dandruff, a scabby head, as well as an itchy scalp. <a href=''>Don't</a> do this on very light hair, however, since it can lead to slightly darkening results. <a href=''>Ever</a> since the old days, walnuts have been considered symbols of general fertility, like all nuts (the well protected nut encased in a tight shell is reminiscent of the stomach of a pregnant woman). <a href=''>The</a> belief still exists today that the year following a rich walnut harvest will bring the births of many children. <a href=''>Is</a> this connected to the ingredients contained in the nut? <a href=''>A</a> woman who wishes for a child can try to eat a few nuts on a regular basis. <br /><br /><a href=''>Wisdom</a> often involves seeing through the apparent issue to the real issue that underlies it. <a href=''>Where</a> the Summerhill students saw only conflict, Neill saw a much more complex dynamic that included affection and playfulness in addition to the superficial disgruntlement; <a href=''>The</a> girls are reacting from a level of irritation which is genuine but also incomplete, less than the whole story, and Mrs Neill gently reminds them of a larger set of values which they share, but have temporarily forgotten. <a href=''>There</a> is a part of the girls that would indeed be disappointed if the boys were to leave them in peace. <a href=''>On</a> a grander scale, Nelson Mandela, in his famous inaugural speech as president of South Africa in 1994, sought to reframe the fears, and the aspirations, of his countrymen and women. <a href=''>He</a> attempted to peel away one layer of understanding to reveal another. <a href=''>Our</a> deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. <a href=''>Our</a> deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. <a href=''>It</a> is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. <a href=''>We</a> ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? <a href=''>I</a> should jump in the lake. <a href=''>All</a> of these negatives, he realized, were commands to his subconscious mind, which reacted correspondingly. <a href=''>By</a> saying he was no good, his subconscious would see to it that he was no good in his examination, in his relations with people, in his studies, and in his contact with the world in general. <a href=''>In</a> addition, he would possibly attract accidents, losses, and failure along all lines. <a href=''>The</a> cure that liberates <a href=''>Being</a> medically trained, upon reflection he perceived immediately the cause of his condition, and he began to affirm boldly: <a href=''>The</a> presence of God is my true nature. <a href='[]=<a+href=></a>'>This</a> presence is all bliss, all harmony, all joy, indivisible, perfect, whole, timeless, ageless, and omnipotent. <a href=''>This</a> is my real self which is always the same yesterday, today, and forever. <a href=''>This</a> is the I am within me--the life principle, the supreme and sovereign power, creator of all things visible and invisible. <br /><br /><a href=''>It</a> certainly can't hurt. <a href=''>Walnut</a> Schnapps for the Skin <a href=''>Take</a> a sealable jar (pickling jars are ideal) and add chopped fresh green walnut pieces (in their green shell before they ripen). <a href=''>Pour</a> a clear grain alcohol over them such as vodka or moonshine and let the whole thing stand for two weeks. <a href=''>The</a> liquid will darken considerably over this time. <a href=''>Afterward,</a> sift off the liquid and fill containers with the resulting walnut schnapps. <a href=''>Diluted</a> with water, it is ideal for compresses and rinses to treat acne, unclear skin, skin infections and the like. <a href=''>Add</a> a generous squirt to the wash water and wash your face with it. <a href=''>Do</a> this without adding soap or anything else, but simply use water and schnapps. <a href=''>Generally,</a> this is an important ground rule: many skin problems disappear on their own if you forego strong detergents in soap and body wash. <a href=''>Actually,</a> who are you not to be? <a href=''>There's</a> nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you . <a href=''>As</a> we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. <a href=''>As</a> we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. <a href=''>We</a> might say that wise people are able to act and judgerightly' because they see through the complicated intermediate layers of value in which people sometimes become enmeshed to the simple truths and concerns that animate almost everyone: to feel safe; As the French psychologist Gisela Labouvie-Vief has concluded from her study of wisdom, What makes the artist, the poet or the scientist wise is not expert technical knowledge in their respective domains but rather knowledge of issues that are part of the human condition. <a href=''>Wisdom</a> consists, so to say, in one's ability to see through and beyond individual uniqueness and specialisation into those structures that relate us to our common humanity. <a href=''>Wise</a> judgements take into account not just ethical depth but the social and historical repercussions that may ensue. <a href=''>An</a> expedient solution may follow from a partial analysis of a problem that represents only one point of view, or excludes a long-term perspective. <a href=''>Those</a> attempting to conduct ethical business, for example, try to make decisions that benefit a constituency ofstakeholders' that includes employees and their families, customers and local residents, as well as the shareholders, and which respect the interests and rights of future generations.
