Rumi’s Profound Wisdom

In the 13th century (723 – 822 years ago!!!), Rumi penned a profound statement. It continues to resonate with us today.

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”

I recently came across a quote that resonated deeply with me, and I believe it can serve as a guiding principle for our mission at TurnerNet. It’s perfectly synonymous with our tagline, ‘Empowering Wisdom, Igniting Courage.’ I hope you find as much inspiration in it as I did.

The Power of Wisdom

Rumi’s wisdom underscores an important idea. True change begins within. It’s easy to believe that cleverness alone can effect meaningful change. Quick solutions and flashy ideas often lure us. But Rumi challenges this notion. He suggests that wisdom, not cleverness, is the key to lasting transformation.

The Role of Wisdom in Change

Wisdom is the understanding that impactful changes start with ourselves. It’s about recognizing our potential for growth. It’s about understanding the power we hold to shape our destiny. This is where “Empowering Wisdom,” comes into play. We believe in nurturing this wisdom within each of us. We empower individuals to seek personal growth. This is a pathway to broader societal change.

Igniting Courage

But wisdom alone isn’t enough. It must be coupled with courage. The courage to confront our flaws. The courage to challenge our preconceptions. The courage to commit to the often difficult journey of self-improvement. This is the essence of “Igniting Courage.” It’s about sparking that inner strength to take action. It’s about making the changes we wish to see in ourselves, and by extension, in the world.

Rumi’s Reminder

Rumi’s quote serves as a reminder. We are all works in progress. It’s a call to action for each of us to embrace wisdom. To ignite our courage. To become the change we wish to see in the world. It’s about shifting our focus from the external to the internal. The transformation of the world begins with the transformation of the self.

Our Commitment at TurnerNet

At TurnerNet, we are committed to this journey of self-improvement and personal growth. We strive to empower wisdom and ignite courage in all that we do. We foster a community that is constantly evolving, learning, and growing. Together, we can change ourselves. In doing so, we can change the world.

A Call to Action

In the spirit of Rumi’s wisdom, let us all strive to be a little wiser. A little braver. A little more committed to personal growth each day. After all, the journey to changing the world begins with the courage to change ourselves. Will you join me?
