A. The reference in the book (Dharma Mind Worldly Mind) to dwelling on wisdom refers to it as a ‘skilful means’ to recall your own insightful understanding, which can help deepen still further your concentration during meditation, not others’ understanding that you may have read about or heard. My recommendation, as ever, is to commit yourself wholeheartedly to cultivating the eightfold path embraced by going for refuge. If you pursue the path in the correct way, the values and qualities you mention will slowly mature within your own heart, and become self-evident. If it helps you, you can study books and then ponder these characteristics and qualities to orientate yourself in the Dharma, but be careful not to turn yourself into a parrot and merely think about and recite what you have read or heard.
