One of the sexiest phrases: "I don't know."
.
We live in a society that gives reverence to knowledge. In school with grades, in business with bonuses-- we like "smart" people.Things 'are the way they are' because of our collective "knowing" (for "better," and also "worse").Yet at the end of the day, I personally still have no clue--I'm absolutely sure of exactly nothing!
.
I'm proven wrong more often than i'd like. I have ideas of how something will happen, and it doesn't; I think a certain person will work/say/act in a certain way and they don't; I think I know all these things about life and love and death and politics and yoga and even just stuff like the height or history of an old building...and again, often wrong.
.
A couple things could be at play: I'm not so smart and ignorant about many things, AND/OR, we CANT know! Sure, some things can be measured and calculated and, well, science, but... are you SURE?! How do you KNOW?
.
The mystery of not knowing is infinitely more interesting. It leaves a doorway for magic and surprise and a truth that is apart from ego and mind and well, YOU! How can we ever access the Truth when we don't even know what we're all doing here or what consciousness really is? There are too many unknowns to make an honest claim to Truth. Wouldn't we need a gods eye view? I look at politics and ideas that I like, or religion that seems reasonable, or technology that seems RIGHT in the moment, only to find out shortly after that I, and perhaps many others, were massively mistaken.
.
And yes, of course we need to get by in the world, so we should of course make some assumptions and live trusting certain things will probably happen... BUT, remember real Truth is beyond the beyond. I really don't know if we can ever have access. I'm not sure if anyone can really say one necessarily True thing (perhaps aside from some linguistic tautologies, or mathematical thing...and even still...).
.
ALL of this to say, I still don't know, and despite your best efforts and studies and opinions, you don't either. Soften into the magic of the wild unknown of your own life and also of the big LiFE!
