    I was not surprised when I read in an article in the Washington Post yesterday of a woman who had had intractable depression (unresponsive to treatment) which "disappeared" when she had a minor stroke. A part of her brain involved in 'thinking' had had the stroke which had interrupted her negative and repetitive ruminations. Just saying . . . Namaste.

    Past stories had me believing that KNOWING brought safety. If I just knew the answers, I could prepare – I would know what to expect. Wow…look at that statement full of control and expectations, full of past experiences and future stories…not present at all. All the energy spent on thought, worry and searching, trying to find answers among unlimited possibilities. Scattering energy and limiting those possibilities in the process. It was exhausting. Still is when I get caught in such a heavy and restricting belief. Working with this one.

    ‘I don’t know’ is pervasive . . . the essence of freedom. Any agitation I experience, even that of others, is always the result of one of us attempting to ‘explain’ something. I once believed that something was being ‘taken’ from me by avoiding expressing my “individual knowledge”. However it has become clear that actually ‘I don’t know’ is the basis of our divinity, and is our true nature. This has been difficult for me because I thought I knew a lot of interesting, trivial and useless stuff that needed to be disseminated! Namaste.

    Like Betty, it is a sweet release when I finally stop feeling the need to know and just stop.

    Like Carol I cannot truly see something without it being jaded, unless or until I honestly see it as new. Most especially life!

    To not know IS the space between two thoughts and IS true freedoms and is the precursor to creativity. It is the birth canal of creativity.

    To know seems to follow a story of self. The more I do this practice the deeper I go into “I have no clue what I am doing.” Mind attempts to know by creating stories of grandeur or slips into a state of panic. In my experience ,freedom always lies in that space where there is nothing to analyze, judge, or fit into a story. Without a story there is nothing to know but the “feel” of home. That is freedom

    When I have put myself into agony trying to decide how things need to happen it is instant freedom when I am realize the way out is to welcome I don’t know. The weight falls away and reveals peace. I can fly again.

    Freedom is having no preconceived ideas and being open and accepting of all experience. . . I try to catch myself prejudging or excluding, and try to practice seeing the world as new, people as new, life as new. Doubt and uncertainty have long been my allies. Namaste.
