Quick Thoughts on Wisdom and Sacrifice

November Project: Question #16 This question comes from Donal on the original November Project post. He can be found on Twitter @irldexter .

For the watcher to act with wisdom, does practice entail sacrifice?

Thank you for the question, Donal.

The watcher will never know if it acts with wisdom. The interpreter might decide whether or not the actions are wise. But the watcher is not the interpreter; it is all action.

The watcher will never know if it has sacrificed. It may go days without eating, years without a loving embrace, and it may never have the money to buy beautiful clothes, or expensive cars. But where is the sacrifice? Where might it sit?

The watcher may be wise, and it may have sacrificed much, but that is for the interpreter...not the watcher.
