A few days back, when i was devouring the contents of a book, i wondered how much of what i have read i was applying in my day to day life. I am not aware if there was any background processing happening based on what i have read, and if my responses are tuned accordingly.
I have read all kinds of books like autobiographies, gospels, self-help and a whole host of magazines with down-to-earth practical info. Still my reactions to everyday events occur on the spur of the moment. There is no planning or recollecting from what i have read.
I was only able to find solace and comfort by doing a post event reading and identifying my real life situation with the gyan from the text. Now i have determined to apply all the wisdom gathered from the numerous books. Only time has to tell if emotions or wisdom will take precedence during crisis situations .
