A Meditation: On Psalm 119:18 // Divine Wisdom //
by Matheus Yuhlung
“Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law” – Psalm 119:18
Sankara the great Indian philosopher was of the view that ignorance separates men from Brahma (i.e. his rendition of God – or the closest thing to higher intelligence. It is also understood as the world spirit). It is like a veil that keeps men in the matrix of time and space; though we were always contained in eternity.
This ignorance of the divine is nothing but the consequences of our sinful existence; which has been inherent ever since Adam fell into sin. We started creating our own understanding of the world around us; dragging ourselves further away from the truth.
Hence, this Psalm here is a wonderful reminder of the fact that men thought how much knowledge he might earn he can never see the beauty of the creations (and the law) until and unless he is gifted with divine wisdom.
The law which terrorizes the lawless is a thing of beauty and wonderful supplement for life for the person whose consciousness is a Christ induced consciousness. Let this forever be our prayer that God would always grant us His wisdom so that we could forever walk on the trail that He had left behind; for knowledge can be earned but wisdom cannot.
