original art by Belinda Paton

Origin of the 108 Wisdom Principles

The 108 Wisdom Principles have their origin in the perennial wisdomthe collective wisdom of humankind
since the beginning of life. This wisdom has come down through the ages in various religions, traditions, and
schools of philosophy.
The perennial wisdom studies what is. It seeks to understand the structure and operation of the cosmos. It is
interested in discovering and applying spiritual laws and principles in our material dimension.
Some of the 108 Wisdom Principles are stated as lawsif A then Band some are stated as principles of
relationship. Both contribute to a better understanding of That Which Is.
Mastering the 108 wisdom principles helps you master your destiny. By working with the universe rather
than against it, you can manifest your intentions, create your preferred reality, and invent your future.
