Thought 372: Wisdom & Understanding

The Kabbalistic Tree of Life contains two sephirotes that refer to both wisdom and understanding.

Wisdom reflects the active masculine principle and through its action flows into the passive feminine recipient that is understanding

Thus wisdom, knowing what to do with what you know, is the fount that nourishes and waters the spiritual vessel of understanding.

In other words, understanding comes through action based in wisdom and in turn wisdom is action that has its roots in wise understanding.
