the joy of not knowing (part 2)

Posted on: February 12, 2011

When we last tuned in, we were striving, searching, seeing for… The Answers! To life! the universe! and everything!

… and realizing how futile it can be.

So we return to the question of: might there be more peace, happiness, and joy within… not knowing?

Let’s explore this, for just a moment. When we find an answer, everything is supposed to fall into place. However, it also creates limitations. If we allow for not having the answers, and perhaps “embrace the question,” we allow for more possibilities to emerge.

Now, as the saying goes, there’s a time and place for everything. It’s not as if answers are bad things – but perhaps we need to wait to have them at the appropriate time.

Action: If you’re obsessing with something, think about whether now is truly the important time to know. See what it would be like to engage with it as a question, rather than needing to know the answer.
