    "And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding." Job 28:28 KJB
    To understand ones "state and standing" with the Creator, takes total honesty with oneself, in the face of the "word of Truth".

    The seeking of wisdom requires the discernment of truth, starting first with what I tell myself  am I speaking truthfully?  I do continue to discover falsehoods I have held as sacrosanct  does that really end for those seeking wisdom?  Do the wise think they are wise?  ;-)
