“I don’t know” is a funny little phrase that we tend to not embrace as humans of the modern age.

We act like we’re supposed to “Know” everything, right now. Today’s society is all about being specific. “This is what I want, this is how I need it to be done, and I need it to be done yesterday.” “This is how I want the person I’m going to marry to be.” “This is how I want my in-n-out burger.”

I feel like you lose a lot when you’ve got to “know.”

The scary part about knowing is the opposite polarity of what we feel like we get when we “know.”

There’s beauty in not knowing. Let me tell you why.

When you don’t know, the possibilities are truly endless. You could be supported and shown up for by the universe in so many ways that your three-brained human vessel can’t even begin to conceive.

What if everything we are looking for lies on the other side of not knowing? Every moment of love that takes our breath away. Every smile that makes your heart skip a beat. Every opportunity that makes you jump up and down in your kitchen with excitement.

What if all of the best things in your life lie on the other side of not knowing? Would you trade “Knowing” for an infinite potential of happiness? For a well of love so deep that you couldn’t even fathom it before you decided to just surrender in to “not knowing?”

Let’s rewrite the story of “not knowing.” It doesn’t have to be scary; it could be exhilarating. It doesn’t have to cause anxiety; it can cause peace knowing that there are infinite ways for your dreams to come through.

I feel like we so often lock ourselves in to these boxes of how things are going to be to help give some sort of balance to the entropy that is human existence. To make us feel like we have some control.

The beauty is, what we really know, is that we don’t know anything. We’re a three dimensional, three brained human meat sack that has been on the planet we call earth for less than 3×10^(-7)% of the existence of our visible universe. We’ve grown up with trauma and raised by other uniquely un-perfect humans. Do we really know what’s best for us?

And do we really need to know?
