Wisdom Is with the Ancient (Man’s Higher Ego), Understanding Is in the Length of Days (Number of Reincarnations)

“Esoterically then, Job’s statement (28:12 and 12:12) must read: ‘With the Ancient (man’s Higher Ego) is Wisdom, and in the length of days (or the number of its reincarnations) is understanding.’ No man can learn true and final Wisdom in one birth; and every new rebirth, whether we be reincarnated for weal or for woe, is one more lesson we receive at the hands of the stern yet ever just schoolmaster — KARMIC LIFE.” (Helena Blavatsky. Collected Writings, Vol XII, p. 313; emphasis added)
