    is god fearing the doorway to wisdom?


    the awe of love is the beginning of wisdom?

    Question: What does "God fearing" mean? Probably should be a separate thread, nevertheless...
    I've never been quite sure what folks mean when they say it. The dictionary says: "earnestly religious"., but I don't think that's how it's used. Maybe wrong.

    Fear is limitation. Self-giving love is the doorway and the path.

    but awe is an attractor to the like minded.

    OK. Now I know what you mean. Not sure about what other folks mean.

    I think the appearance of wisdom is the gradual awareness of the divine. I think love is the same thing. Not sure what I think about fear and awe. That might be limiting. Not sure.
