What We Don’t Know

Standard

We don’t know much of what there is to know.

It’s only our egos that tell us that we do,

prideful tricksters that they are……What silly asses!

In reality, in the now,

we barely know what we need to survive in this world,.

how to be, how to relate to others, the universe,

how to love,

how to tie our own shoelaces,

and sometimes, not even that.

Much of what we think we know,

what we have learned to be true in the past,

is now false,

now only useless trivia.

Yesterday’s truths may no longer apply today.

Don’t cling to belief.

Don’t cling to knowledge.

It’s all temporary, just stuff.

Don’t get hung up on it.

Clinging only leads to stagnation.

The past is gone, never to return.

We know nearly nothing.

Get comfortable with this fact.

Have courage.

Make peace with it.

Become an empty vessel.

Allow it.

Allow for change.

Allow for the new.

Allow for the flow.

Allow for wonder.

Stay open.

Only then, can we know what we don’t know..
