The Importance Of Not Knowing
People like to know stuff.
It keeps us in our comfort zone.
And if you were in an old age home and a doctor was doing a quick check of your with-it-ness, he might ask you questions like, “What day of the week is it?” or “Who is the president?”
We want to know that we are going to get out of this mess.
That we are going to get the job, find the guy or the girl, make a million dollars while we are at it and sort this situation out and come out of it alive.
Last year, after a deep personal crisis, I turned to a friend and said, “I feel like I don’t know anything anymore.”
I was really distraught. I felt like I had lost my way for a moment. I really meant it.
“Congratulations,” my friend said. “That is a sign of deep spiritual growth.”
My favorite author is Dr. David Hawkins, M.D., author of Power Versus Force and many other books about the process of spiritual growth.
Dr. Hawkins says that if we constantly ask for guidance about everything, and choose the highest consciousness answer, that method alone will lead us to enlightenment.
The point is, don’t automatically assume that you know. Keep asking for guidance in whatever way feels right for you. You can pray about it. You can use kinesiology. You can come to someone you trust, a clear channel, and ask for insight. You can go into meditation and see what comes up for you.
Keep your mind open.
One of my mentors in healing says, “Our job is to show up and get out of the way.”
In other words, be fully present and check your ego at the door.
