What does it take to be wise? Watching Dr. Phil, reading Brittney Spears mother's book on parenting, or looking into the yellowbook.com, or is there another way?
In a television commercial for online yellow pages, actor David Carradine plays a guru to a young seeker. (Sorry a side note: Kung Fu 1972, or Kill Bill 2004) When the student asks, "How do I find enlightenment?" the master says, "Yellowbook.com .. . Everyone is searching for something . . . After all, it is a material world, and with yellowbook.com, you just type in what and where."
The ad is insightful. Wisdom does involve the practical use of knowledge to get what we are looking for. The commercial is also right in suggesting that wisdom is more accessible than many of us might have thought.
