Getting still

The yellow butterflies rarely land long enough to get a good photo,
 but yesterday I lucked out...

Intellectual understanding is not the same as wisdom. You can be inspired by someone else's words and identify with their spiritual teachings, but that does not make you wise. Though we all have the capability to be insightful, unfortunately, we've been conditioned to focus and value the external world more. It takes years of discipline to be able look inward rather than outward for the answers. Unless you have a genuine desire to learn this, you'll be pulled away easily by the distractions of the outer world...
