It only takes a jot of wisdom to transform your sense of self.
A jot is an extremely small amount and comes from the Greek word iota which is the smallest letter in the Greek alphabet. It looks just like the smallest letter in our alphabet, I.
When you sign up for a course, buy a book, read a blogpost, or have a sacred conversation all you need to experience is a jot, an iota, of wisdom to find the power for self-transformation.
Wisdom lives in a single phrase, a single idea, a simple step in an exercise. It’s a moment…a breakthrough…an ahha. You got it! Now things make sense! Something begins to shift. Suddenly you feel a bit of safety, calmness, wakefulness or nourishment.

It just the jot that matters. It is a serious and relaxed wonder and a trust…just like the enthusiasm of a small child with a new toy, that leads you to the jot of wisdom.
This is why we are so fascinated with quotes – they are jots of wisdom that might empower transformation. Won’t you please share a jot that you love, that changed your sense of self in a comment on this post.
