How You Can Write a Book on Wisdom (And Why You Should)

After the experience, the sharing

You have the right age to be wise. Or you think you know enough on a topic to share your wisdom about it.

Perhaps, at the end of a big project, long relationship, school years, long trip, you want to keep your deepest learnings in place.

Maybe, you want to start writing whatever you know of this life — no matter how small — to your daughters or sons.

Whatever the reason, you want to write a book of wisdom.

Or a booklet, an essay, a letter, no matter the size of the project. Wisdom doesn’t know about quantities.

For a thousand readers, or just for your child. Wisdom doesn’t know about the size of audience.

How to know you are ready?

You lived the experience. Yes, you have some information and knowledge, some very good stories, but most of all, you have lived the experience.

In fact, part of what you know, part of your wisdom, is still wordless. That is how it works. Wisdom is an embodied experience. Don’t worry, words will come.

Also, your life is different after the experience. You went through a deep learning that changed your view of the world.

Suffering wasn’t out of the equation. Obstacles, difficulties, pain… if it had been easier, no worth to talk about it, right?

How to start?

Before writing, take your attention to that moment after you were different, when you became wiser.

Take a breath, meditate, visualize, feel the moment, feel the wisdom.

What would you say to yourself at the beginning of that big experience that you had liked to know?

You have to guide a group of newcomers through the same experience you had. What would you say to them? What would you tell them about the journey?

Or you are with your daughters and sons — maybe your granddaughters and grandsons. You want to give them some learnings from what you’ve live, something so important they will even say to their own children or loved ones.
