Son and daughter (aspirant),
There is no wisdom in the world (pleasures of life), hardship certainly and the long road home, and in some cases the short road that leads to death of the body but not the soul.
Wisdom is attained through introspection, reflection, meditation and study of ancient wisdom text. Do not be disappointed in the lack of wisdom in the world. The hidden mysteries of God and the true nature of things comes by contemplation on the matters of life and exercising humility, virtue, patience and sincerity.
Therefore, go beneath the surface and beyond the worldly ego mind and pull the senses within oneself to transcend physical existence to experience absolute reality. Then you will gain your eyes and the veil will be pulled back of the true higher self and absolute reality.
Peace and blessings,
