Emotional health is the panacea for a wise America.

Use Your Brain and Mind to Improve Each Other.

Brain Education Is the Key. Please Embrace It.

Emotionally Healthy Brain Generates Emotional Intelligence.

The Sure Path to a Wise Society is by Defining Wisdom Correctly. Define Wisdom Not by What it is But by Whatever Generates Wisdom. Define Wisdom as Humility.

Creating a universal code for all human behavior based on the true nature of wisdom is the key to getting out of the current mess in education and in society.”
— Sajid Khan; Humility is the power that generates wisdom.



For thousands of years, our wisdom experts have been asking the same

old question again and again, ‘What is wisdom?’. The answer after all

these years is still pretty much elusive because of the very nature of

wisdom. Wisdom is a symptom of an emotionally healthy brain. Focusing

on the symptom is like trying to understand smoke to understand the

fire. Thus teaching wisdom is like trying to create smoke on its own

without even knowing that it is generated by the fire. Even when we

know what is wisdom we still have to figure out how to become wise.

Too much focus is on trying to figure out wisdom and hardly any on how

to become wise; when becoming wise is what is essential and is all

that counts.

The tragedy of wisdom education is that our experts are still confused

about the functions of the brain and mind. The mind functions in words

while the brain in biochemical reactions that are generated by the

existing brain wiring. When the mind is taught wisdom knowledge in

words, it wants to follow but the brain biochemically filters the

lessons based on past fixations. The mind tries to soak up the

inspiring insights but the brain's existing beliefs alter and pollute

the new knowledge. So all this wisdom (mind) education falls on

deaf/emotionally-challenged brains.

The brain is like a movie projector that projects a self-conscious

self-image. An emotionally challenged brain continuously projects an

emotionally challenged self-image and current wisdom education is like

instead of repairing the projector/brain the projected self-image is

taught to educate itself into wisdom. It is like the movie projector

is projecting a black and white image and attempts are made to change

the image into color through educating the self-image! Say if the self

image is physically red; can it be educated into becoming blue? It is

very clear that creating wisdom has little to do with educating the

mind and has everything to do with healing the brain; the source of

the mind.

When defining wisdom none of the wisdom experts nor any of the

dictionaries will say that wisdom above all is

pure/emotionally-healthy love. As love is an emotion; so is wisdom an

emotion. Even a child knows that love is a function of the heart. The

heart is an agent of the brain; as it has 40,000 brain neurons. Thus

wisdom is a function of the brain and heart. No wonder all these tens

of thousands of books on wisdom do not make one wise; as these books

try to teach the mind wisdom; when it is the brain that needs to be

changed/healed physically. The focus has to shift to making the brains

emotionally healthy.

Our wisdom sages think that wisdom is a body of knowledge that needs

to be discovered and taught. So they keep putting wisdom under the

microscope and all they find are the attributes of wisdom. So they try

to define wisdom by its attributes. But they miss wisdom as wisdom is

much more that the sum of its parts. Wisdom is like a cake and so by

describing the cake as sugar, butter and/or flour they totally

misdefine the cake! If someone has not seen a cake and is told that

the cake is sugar, butter etc.; then how can he perceive the cake and

much less understand and experience the cake? Just imagine giving

someone sugar and saying, 'Here, have a cake"!

Wisdom is generated by selflessness. Like wisdom; selflessness is

misunderstood as considering one’s self as an insignificant zero.

Selflessness does not stand for putting one’s self down as nothing. It

stands for being so fully satisfied and confident with one’s own self

worth that one does not need to focus on the self being less or more.

It enables one to just not focus on one’s own self-worth at all and be

fully immersed in living in the now. Selflessness provides the

unconscious supreme confidence of being equally significant in a world

where everyone else is just as precious; regardless of

race, color or class.

The face of selflessness is humbleness. We already bring up our girls

humble. As a result, our girls are far more emotionally-healthy/wise.

No wonder our girls are better in every way except in science; even

that is because we have created a wrong belief that boys are better in

science. We bring up our boys macho. Machoness is the very opposite of

humbleness. It is machoness that leads to most of the ills of society

from crime to drug addictions, to child and wife abuse, student

failures and all the other mess in society. Imagine if we brought up

our boys humble; just as we bring up our girls.
